    Put some Blue on the threads.
  2. I have the bolts/studs for the L series manifolds as 9-12 ft lbs. These are aluminum heads and will strip easily. Use the lowest number you can. Don't know if there is a sequence for the A series, the L series does not. I don't think it would matter.
  3. I remember a Turbonique VW called the inch pincher. Did 180 in the 1/4.
  4. Filter position doesn't matter. Pump will suck out all the air just like coke up a straw.
  5. I have not had any unexplained illnesses in the past year and even longer. Don't remember the last time is was sick. I'm not working, rarely go into town (never without a mask), no plane flights, no bus, never socialize (bars, parties, restaurants) no visitors. I would say low risk as opposed to living in a plague infested seniors home or on a petri dish cruise ship. I checked and 6.8 million doses have been administered so less than one in a million deaths. That's insignificant and may be from birth control pills, smoking and obesity. Who knows. 1 in 1,000,000 isn't really news
  6. You'll have to try it with the vacuum advance connected. You'll see that you get better mileage with than without. Yes, I see there are only 2 ports on the CA '83. The '84 has 3 and the EGR has it's own port.

    Just my experience with a 620. (my 521 snapped the mount bolts off in the block, I transferred the alternator to the driver's side) Drove around fine for a few weeks but the belt slipped and when tightened it banged on the idler arm and the fins nicked the radiator hose. It's just not a good fit with larger diameter alternators and why (or one of the reasons why) the 720 has the idler on the outside of the frame.

    I don't remember my 521 but the 620 has a grease fitting on the top of the idler arm directly in the way when tensioning the belt. I didn't but should have replaced it with a plug. In the '90s I got a 720 mount as it positions the alternator 1/4"? higher and a 280zx? lower water inlet because it's more swept back than the L20B one. I think it was the zx one but although they all have the heater hose connection they don't all have the much smaller bypass hose as well because the EFI didn't need this. I don't remember getting if from a carburetor 240/260z. Maybe. The larger 50/60 amp alternator
  9. Did not know. I went to a drive in to see the Omega Man when it came out and enjoyed it, though a bit dated now. The Will Smith one was .... ok but the special effects were terrible. 4 days till I get vaccinated.
  10. What do you need to know? Taking apart is easy. Springs (inner/outer), retainers, keepers and washers all the same and interchangeable, though it's customary to keep them in their original positions it's not the end of the world if mixed up.
  11. ...... and always kept in the bottom of the fridge.

    I'm guessing it's closed due to co-vid. Saying NOS is unicorn rare. Rare, not non existent. Anywhere from 20-50% of museum paintings are forgeries. Why not antique car parts. A counterfeit 'vintage' NOS 510 tie rod has got to be worth more than a counterfeit Chevy Nova tie rod. Same amount went into making them. China is pretty good at it.

    https://www.aa1car.com/library/counterfeit_auto_parts.htm Vintage parts are even more lucrative. Maybe they are. Maybe they were made with the original dies.
  15. Do I have regrets? none that I know of. My brother called me once to tell me that dad had passed away. Could have called when mom was ill but didn't. Not like no-one knew my number. After dad passed about 12 years ago, I kept in touch with my brother for a few years but it was always one way. Oh, he sent me an e mail about a common friend and neighbor that passed. I replied with stories of good times and the last thing said was " we should talk more often"..... no reply. That was 6-8 years ago. So I've tried and I've done my part but not optimistic and it simply is what it is. Families are wei
