i set it cold....it was a PITA to do it running and burning ass hot near that manifold.

if it clattered when it got warm.. I just waited for it to cool off......adjusted.....ran....

i got it pretty dang close.

less heat....less burns....less oil everywhere.

Nah. I still lurk around on the site. Just got a lot of home projects going the last couple of years. I usually only drive it when people rent it through Driveshare.

I replaced my cork floats with modern metal reproductions from a ford model “whatever” website. The ford ones fit perfectly. No more cork. Don’t remember the website... may be in my blog.

agree with Flack...the hinges suck....and good luck getting the hood back on solo...and without damaging at least some paint.

took mine off once....will avoid ever doing it again.

finally caught up and realize I don't have much to offer other then I completely rebuilt my trans and put the recommend oil in it and my 2nd gear will grind as well if I shift too fast.

sometimes hard to slow down going from modern cars.


also, I just adjusted my clutch to what felt right for my driving. works fine.

I am interested in all of your suspension/steering work. I really need to do alot of that. Lots of slop in my steering. my back shocks are toast....they leak....thought about just trying to convert to modern shocks instead of rebuilding....shouldn't be too hard to do and I'm not as concerned with originality on things that are hidden. I would keep the originals though as they are not the same as a standard 120...same with my brakes.

can't comment on the water pump....mine is a sealed unit with a bearing. So far, only know of two of these pumps to exist...mine and Flack. probably more though and I'm happy to have it. I just grease and go and no leaks, no packing.

as for the horn....when I rewired....I'm pretty sure i put a new wire down the steering shaft. mine was new at the tip and original in the shaft....it was bare in many places. I can't remember for sure...been too long.

taillights....12v...bright as can be....white bulbs...no problems. gasket around one of my trim rings was just silicone. used silicone again...no leaks...don't drive in rain anyways.

i would also switch to the carter carb....the EE is okay...i just think the carter is superior in function. I personally (at some point and now that they make 2bbl EFI) plan to convert to EFI just for fun. just have to work on an adapter plate to go to square bore.
