  3. On to the driver's rear arch today. had previously ground this too thin and kept blowing pinholes while trying to fix some cracks, so decided to do it right and replace the section entirely. [/url] Not quite perfect, but good enough fir a little filler and better than thinning the panel out again. Will be improving the panel gap at the bottom soon, same as the other side. Cut/tacked this inner arch to match the other. As said before, i'll be welding/cleaning all this up properly later. Can't really see in the pic, but tapped the outer arch f

And I cant thankyou enough for being observant and helpful to get me to this point.... your shop sticker definitely earned its place on my truck....

  7. Push firmly with thumb half way between pulleys. One belt width is ok. I pry out between alternator and block with a tire iron to get it tight.

  11. My Dad had a '32 Cabriolet like that,in near perfect condition, except it had dual side mounted tires. He paid $2500 for it in 1972,& sold it for almost $25,000 about 25 years later.

  12. I put anti seize on my intake bolts and studs. Torq? Tight plus a little is what I do. bolt going in to aluminum always be careful. Its not a Iron V8 from back in the day. All new cars are aluminum now. pull the threads over time then the bolts will work themselves loose

  15. I've taken mine apart and fixed them many of times. They don't stay rust free for very long. The rubber grommet on the motor shaft is toast on all of them letting water into the motor housing. The position the motor sits in the bag does not help this. Once it's working the best thing to do is keep cycling it every couple weeks to a month year round regardless of the weather. . Letting it sit too long without turning it on is your enemy.

  16. I did use the T/O bearing and collar from my 4 speed but I think I just didn't understand what I needed to adjust on the slave. The picture below helped me understand it, so I push the fork all the way back and push the rod all the way then adjust the nuts for 1/16 of play between them and the fork so that the spring will pull the fork back enough to not have the bearing rest against the fingers. And I have a manual choke which I am pretty sure is going to go away with the dual mikunis and if the alternator doesn't work then I put the stock one back one with the external voltage regulator.

  18. Haven’t had much time to work on it lately, but the rear springs are swapped for a proper fit now. And the fuel tank is completely mounted. I moved the rear crossmember back some, drilled some holes in it and welded nuts to it. That’s the mount for the rear of the straps. For the front mount of the straps, I used a t bolt and some brackets on the coil over cross bar. Drilled holes, inserted the t bolt, the folded the strap around the t bolt and welded it. Now it can be tightened up against the bottom of the bed crossmember. Which is what the angle iron is representing. The tank is

  19. Where to begin. I've been racing the SBC powered 280Z, every other year, for 6 years now. 5 final rounds. 3 wins, 2 runners up. In 2019, I raced at Mission Raceway in BC for the season, and gave Pro bracket a try. 3rd place, 1 point behind 2nd, when the trans came apart. Done for the year. It's fixed and ready for battle, but I bought this dragster as a roller and struggled with what direction to got for 2+ years, until the light came on. L20b/ shorty Glide. I've already done a ton of work, (and spent a ton of $$) so I will post up some pics to try to catch up. Here we go.

  20. So what's with the paranoia going on with the guardsmen being in DC coming from both flocks of cuckoo birds. Who placed the guards in DC? Did the Guards get placed at the request of Democrats or Republicans?

  21. You can seal them but drill a hole in the thermostat so water will circulate past it for the reasons given previously. Connected together is a better set up as the by pass water as it warms goes right back into the block instead out out the top hose and displacing cold water from the cold rad into the cold engine. The warm up is faster when connected.

  22. Ok so just block off the second threaded hole on the thermostat housing and clamp off the outlet on the water inlet? I don't need to connect those two together?

  24. Yes it will fit. It positions the alternator very slightly higher. It was one of the reasons I put one on my 620 when I put the larger diameter 50/60 amp alternator on it. You might need a slightly shorter belt.

  26. I’m thinking, as this wasn’t a “store” or private property, then the building bounds were not relevant to the charge. As the entry to the building, legally was in the same possession as the inside, and the outside areas. The theft case would not be stealing from the building. Perhaps because he did in fact take it without permission within a building he was not permitted to enter?

  34. Censorship is wrong for anyone. Full stop. If you think speech you disagree with politically should be banned you are anti-1st amendment and therefore Anti-american. If you think the powers that be will just ban those you don't like well you will get exactly what you deserve. First they came for the Communists And I did not speak out Because I was not a Communist Then they came for the Socialists And I did not speak out Because I was not a Socialist Then they came for the trade unionists And I did not speak out Because I was no

  39. The trick was (after messing with various spacers) I slid an inch long section of rubber hose over the steering shaft to past the splines where it's smaller. Then the conical section in the adapter ( behind its splines) snugged up on the hose as the nut was tightened. I also had to tap the cancellation pins a little to stop hitting the turn signal
