  1. Here is what the door looks like behind a deluxe panel.
  2. I have a nice set of the rear interior woodgrain panels. I am in NC and headed to Carlisle this afternoon. seven seven zero 823 thirteen seventy or email at jimwoods7 at outlook dot com
  3. I have a theory about this and some evidence to support it. If your coupe had a black vinyl top, like most Grande's did, the rear window trims are black. If no vinyl top, they are a grey color. I think the parts book might also list another color or two though I have never seen any colors but black or gray. I have the rear window trims from an extremely low mileage plain vanilla coupe, body color new lime, and they are grey.

  5. If your goal is just to get a roller tip, you could look into these lightweight non-adjustable rockers. $450 a set. You may need custom pushrods with these depending on what cam you use. https://lykinsmotorsports.com/products
  6. Contrary to that thread link, the knobs just unscrew. Pull the shaft out to full extension, grip the shaft and unscrew the knob. Since you can buy new knobs, if the removal is really tough you can just grip the shaft with something and gorilla the plastic knob if necessary to unscrew it. Then use a new knob when you reassemble.
  7. I think the possible damage is to the shock absorber and its bushings due to full extension and the weight of the suspension components hanging on it.
  8. I have one. What are you using on the pot metal/aluminum parts as an additive to the water? I use mine with either Purple Power or Simple Green added but I am cleaning bearings with it. When I put an aluminum piece in it discolored it. I think that was using Simple Green.
  9. I understand Marco is no longer at K of T and their quality has suffered lately. Just passing along info I read elsewhere.
  10. I have used the BR Driven oil on 4 flat tappet engines now and had no issues with cam break-in. Maybe just lucky but I am superstitious now so won't use anything else. I should note that these break-ins were done on a dyno where the load and temperature can be closely controlled so that may be part of the reason for my success. I also made sure I had checked and rechecked everything to ensure that the engine started immediately.
  11. A Truetrac diff is nothing like a traction lok. No clutch discs.
  12. I think that is the preload. In other words, "nominal" is zero preload and then you remove shims to obtain the required preload.
  13. I doubt this is your problem, but my Grande' behaved in a similar fashion. It took me a long time, but I eventually stumbled on the fact that the stud for the idler arm had been installed upside down. So when you hooked everything up, the angle of the passenger side steering link was much different than the angle on the driver side, causing a lot of bump steer when only one tire hit a bump. How do the angles of your steering links compare when you eyeball them? Same?
  14. Which vendor space will you be in at Carlisle?
