Always put a nut on them and wacked with a hammer to try to break them loose. And there is always the blue wrench ( torch to heat the block)
Good Luck

Any body got a source for really good reproduction wire. I was at Hersey and it seemed all they had was really cheap wire that they put cloth around and charged a horrendous price for. Don't mind paying for the good stuff

Not so much getting them in as getting them out. Seem that they were put in from the bottom, maybe with the engine out of the car, some are cracked, some are pretty beat up. As for going in, the machinist, stated the you just adjust them by chuck them up in the drill press and take 1/2 a thousand
off of them.
Just was wondering with all the factory knowledge you gut have if there was an approved method of installation or just get them in
Thanks for the input
Will

Might be
does it need a fuel tank and is it running on a gal can gravity feed.
If you open the top of trans, can you see rusty gear bearing as if was in a flood
I was told it had a flood title
Like my car looked real good from 20ft, but as you get on it all the old lacquered finish is cracking. Mine got about 5 year in an unheated garage until it started flaking off. Goes in next year for the soda blast and new paint
Any rate, pretty car, wish you all the luck with it. They are fun to drive

Got an update from my guy
It seem that the car had a decal that was totally unreadable. The car got sold to someone in Georgia, before it left, I was told, that they stamped numbers in the frame that matched the existing title. The car needed a complete restoration, and I do not know if its going to be restored or turned into a hot rod. Either way, whoever is doing it will have a pile of money in it that they never get back
Just hope they love the car
Thanks for all the help
