Yes, but now connected to proper manifold port. Thanks for the pics. You may recall during your visit that I have a running 56 400 that I have been using for reference while restoring the 55. The wiring order is correct, distributor orientation is the same. I have verified TDC and rotor positions are correct. With all this the RPM and timing mark on damper are unsteady. It is a puzzle.

For what it's Worth: when the engine was dissembled for rebuild (with less than 38,000 miles) number 7 piston had hole (burnt?) in the top compression ring grove. possible crossfire ?

Thanks for the feedback. High vacuum due to my using the wrong port. I plan to remove the distributor. I wish there were one of the old Sun machines near here but, they are almost nonexistent. Timing mark unsteady. moves +/- 5degres.

55 400 idle variations
With engine warm and the vacuum advance disconnected and the port plugged, idle is unsteady. A vacuum gage connected to the rear port of the carburetor reads max on the gauge. Visually comparing the distributor position to a 56 400 and firing order are the same. The 56 idle is smooth and vacuum is normal. I am at a loss as to what could be causing this unsteady idle, and high vacuum. Any suggestions as always would be deeply appreciated.

Thanks for the interest and feedback. I thought that I had a picture of the clip but could not locate it. Thanks for the posting. Before going the glue route, I will remove the passenger’s side (single switch ) and see how it compares to the posted photos. I am thinking that steel strapping might work if I can anneal it, shape it, and reharden it.

These seem to be no longer available. ( have tried max, kantner, and restoration specialties ) Any suggestions on attaching the switch to the door? I am considering cementing the trim gasket to the back of the switch bezel and then using double faced tape to stick the switch to the door panel.
