I might recommend Brillman for your ground wire and John Uhlrich for your heat shield, if he carries one for that year.

Thanks, I'll have to look into both. Brillman made my spark plug wires, and though they are the correct style they are super long. Like at least an extra 6-12" of length for each wire. Makes it look messy and gets in the way.

So far no luck finding the vacuum lines


Did you try Classic Tube? They list them as a set but they also have countless parts that are not listed in the online catalog.

Good Afternoon Kevin...You should tell Brillman...They might send you a proper set. Good companies want to know when they fail to supply parts properly...Ernie in Arizona

Easy to shorten the spark plug wires. Simply remove the push on terminal from the distributor cap end, move the nipple up the wire, cut to desired length, reattach terminal, and install on cap. Rinse and repeat.

Don - I did check with Classic Tube, but they only have stuff for the 359 engine. Not sure if the tubes would be the same for the 327. I'll probably just end up learning how to bend my own. Money will be better spent on a windshield and gasket.

Ernie - I'll shoot them a message and let them know so they can adjust their lengths for future customers.

JW - Sounds simple enough. I'll give it a shot and get everything tidy.

I posted the parts book entry a few pages back and it shows the same for yours and the 359 so the lines are identical. The only difference is whether power brakes or not and yours has the power brake connector so the part is the same.

As I mentioned, Classic Tube lists parts based on what the customer told them they were from but they do not go through the trouble themselves of cross referencing them. (Whenever I have them make parts, I make sure they are listed for all appropriate models.) That's where the parts books come in handy. Same part number, same part.

Sorry Don, yes you did post that. And yes they have the same part number so they should be the same. I'll check on pricing with them. When I talked to them it comes as a set of 4 vacuum lines, not sure if I can get just the two I need.

I don't know what the set of four would be unless they're including the vacuum advance line but I can't think offhand of a fourth! Maybe the automatic choke tube? Anyway, they make their lines to order and you can buy one single line or a set.

Parts are on order to finish the fuel pump install.

In the meantime I started applying sound deadener to the inside of the car. Got the roof done today.

Materials:
-Noico 80 mil sound deadener sheets: Amazon
-Noico roller: Amazon
-Aluminum tape: Amazon
-Scissors
-Gloves
-Heat gun

The mats consist of a layer of metal foil and a layer of butyl rubber. There is wax paper covering the butyl, which is peeled off and the mat placed on the car. The roller is used to firmly apply the mat to the metal. The bumps on the foil are an indicator if you have applied enough pressure with the roller...they should be flat after using the roller. The mats can be easily cut with a normal pair of scissors. Be sure to wear gloves because the sharp edge of the foil will cut you.

Application should be done above 53 degrees. I used a heat gun to heat up the roof a bit to be sure I had good adhesion. Rolling every square inch of the roof was torture on my shoulders and arms. As a last step, I put aluminum tape over every joint, as well as all around the edges. That should seal everything up and is an extra layer of security.

A couple of notes:
1.) The mats have no smell to them
2.) I used just over 5 sheets to do the whole roof (9 to a box)

Click on the video link to see the comparison of before and after. I used the same force when knocking on the roof. And the roof hasn't been washed since I bought the car, so forgive the filth: YouTube
