  1. Updating to disc brakes, this would be a great time to use 5 lug wheel hubs. Also it is easier to find 5 hole wheels. The prices on these 4 lug hubs is rather spendy.
  2. Is the carburetor fully seated on the intake? Possible that your carburetor is drawing air through the intake manifold.
  3. The lower two bolts appear to be too short. Are they drawn up tight, or just run on the bolt? Any way the mounting plate looks well made.
  4. You shouldn't skimp on tires. What size wheels do you have? Buy tires with at least 40K warranty. Also when purchasing tires get a road hazard warranty. Visit some tire stores, and ask questions on tread wear, handling characteristics in rain and snow, as well as highway road speeds. Buy a name brand tire, BF Goodrich, Cooper, Michelin, Pirelli, Hankook, Kumho come to mind. Also a good time for a wheel alignment, so that your tires will last longer.
  5. With 2.02 valves, the pistons will need to be notched for clearance.
  6. The Forever Sharp steering wheel is a nice 14" option. You can find them on fleabay , etc.
  7. try putting a condenser either on the coil or voltage regulator. That was how it was done years ago.
  8. At least, they are shipped for free.
  9. When I had my small block rebuilt, it was already at .030 over. My rebuilder bored it to .040 over, and mentioned that if it didn't pan out we would have needed another block. He was concerned about overheating. So have it sonic checked as barnett468 suggested.
  10. Afret is that an electric water pump? If so, where's a good place to buy one?
  11. Did you replace your flasher with a led type flasher?
  12. The headlight switch has a rheostat in it. That is what adjusts the brightness of your gauge lights.
  13. My coupe had primer on the hinges. Mine was built in San Jose, so don't know if that was the same as other plants.
  14. Nice build. You might want to put a grommet in where you did the cutout. You don't want anything happening to your wiring. If you can't find a grommet, you can make one out of plastic or rubber tubing, and glue it in place. Good luck on your project, and sorry for your loss. My father taught me a lot about life.
  15. Finally a headliner for a 69 coupe. Yeah!
  16. When was the last time you replaced your fuel filter? They're inexpensive, and should probably replaced at least once a year. You could also have bad gas in your tank. Good luck with your troubleshooting.
  17. You definitely went with the better color choice. Two thumbs up.
  18. Looks great. Magnum 500s were used back in the day, and they still look sharp.
  19. Like the Grabber Green. It makes the lines of the car stand out. Excellent Choice.
  20. brake retainer clips. They were on all drum brake cars in the 60s and 70s.
  21. Better check again, there's a bunch of new spammers.

  23. I have this one, picked it up on sale @ ebay for 93.99 now 103.99 http://www.ebay.com/itm/311013459672?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT AS of 12/14/14 back down to 93.99. Virtually the same wheel that someone said that it isn't made anymore. Gawd, why bother helping, if no one takes it seriously.
  24. I would say brakes and wiring. Without either your car is just another lawn ornament.
  25. It would be nice to know about the headliner, as well.
