Mine cuts out after warming up. I think it is the ignition switch. One wire on the switch goes straight to the coil. If that has a problem with fraying or some other problem, that could cause the problem.

After extensive looking the best price was Advance Auto $187.99 which includes a refundable core charge. Net cost $165.89.
These batteries are in short supply. Even the Optima website was out of stock!!

The NAPA part number for the rotor on the x ref on this site is out of date. Anyone know the current NAPA part number for the rotor on the 356 engine?

Exhaust manifold gasket torque

When I replaced exhaust manifold gaskets on my 47 356 engine, I installed the metal sandwich type gaskets and had the ports ground before installing. While tuning the car, I noticed that there is some exhaust leak somewhere. I was careful not to tighten the manifold too tight as it needs room to expand.

Another post, below, has a discussion where the owner settled on 35 lbs for torque.

I would be a lot more comfortable with a uniform measurement.

Any thoughts??


OOOPS! Despite my faulty information that it was not available Mike directed me to the engine manual and it is on page 45 of the engine manual 25 to 30 LBS.
