    rockhouse66 got a reaction from capemustang in Removing knobs from 69 clock   
    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.

    I understand Marco is no longer at K of T and their quality has suffered lately.  Just passing along info I read elsewhere.

    rockhouse66 got a reaction from capemustang in Bump steer?   
    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?

    You will pass right by this place if it interests you;

    And the Biltmore House in Asheville, NC is a must see if you like that sort of history.  It might take a little detour to get there North from Atlanta then East to Charlotte, but the area is very pretty with mountains and Asheville is a cool town worth exploring.

    rockhouse66 got a reaction from deannav2 in Flowmaster 50 Mufflers 2.5" Pair - $95   
    SOLD!
     
    Pair of used Flowmaster 50 mufflers, offset in, center out, 2.5" diameter.  Mufflers measure about 17" long X 9" wide with 3-1/4" long stubs.  These have some tabs added to hang them with stock '69 Fairlane hangers.  Might be the same as '70 hangers?  The bolt centers on the hanger tabs are about 5-7/8".
     
    Price is $95 for the pair plus shipping at cost from 28721.  They are only about 6# each (guessing) so shipping should not be too bad and I would use the cheapest of USPS, FedEx or UPS.

    On a '69 there is another harness that runs to the front and ties into the front turn signals to activate the hood mounted turn signals.
