  1. Download the 'family locator' app onto yours and spouse phone. whenever leave the car, hide the extra phone in a secret place it act as a no fee GPS locator even the car got towed
  2. Removing the gas tank too much trouble, and fire hazard. I usually take the distributer off and carry it with me. For GPS I let my insurance policy handle it.
  3. It could also be the float bowls gasket is leaking. I would clean up the mess real well first. Start the engine let it idle, so the carb is under pressure. See if you can detect any dripping, or seepage while engine running. With engine off , leave overnight see if you can detect any wet spot next day.
  4. It could also be a bulb issue? Try to replace one bulb at time see if you can isolate the problem. Sometime the contact in the socket oxidized and cause mild shortage, clean contact area with dielectric grease. Last solution, get a voltage reading on the bulb, and radio terminal
  5. Was doing mobile automotive touch-up for 17 years, its impossible to get a exact match on metallic or mica color. Even you have the original paint from the paint job. You can only adjust the color little lighter, darker or more greener, yellower. When you spray the paint, the metal lay flat and reflect light. when you dab the paint it sink to the bottom, appear darker. My suggestion to you is apply with a touch-up sprayer, or airbrush. Even with this technique you need invest more material such as basecoat reducer, clear coat, hardener , clear coat reducer. the end result might not be satisfactory. I would just touch-up the best could be done and live with it till next paint job. Sorry I know is not what you want to hear.
  6. Can you do this to oil pressure gauge? my replacement meter don't match the sender unit. It read 100+ when idling.
  7. I had similar issue few month ago. car just started sputtering on the road like run out of gas manage to get home, wont start anymore. install fuel pressure meter to confirm pressure in line, which is good. Check and reset the float level. Checked all the wiring to the coil and is good. for two weeks try to figure out whats the problem. No spark to the spark plug. The final solution, I purchased and installed a Petronix ignition system along with a recommended coil. The car started right up without even cranking (normally need two or three try) Not only it run good , it rise the RPM to about 1200 idling., had to readjust the carb to bring down the idle speed. The engine run like new now..
  8. Put your old contact switch back, see if that would stop the squeaks. NO-OX-ID electric contact grease its better than dielectric for electric contact .
  9. I don't think solenoid is the issue here. solenoid contain no moving parts , except a magnetic coil. next time when not starting, jump a wire from battery to the ignition terminal on the solenoid see if that works. its more likely a lose wire connection some where.
  10. Can someone help me please, need to know if you can remove the rear main shaft without removing the rear bearing first? . Don't have a bearing puller, just want to replace the synchronizer blocker rings. Thought about removing the front bearing with 4th gear first, then removing the snap ring on the main shaft, and removing one drive gear at time. Then take out the main shaft from the top opening.. Can this be done, or I need get a bearing separator ? any help is appreciated.
  11. I got a feeling the price of classic and collector car price going to drop just like stock market. I will wait.
  12. Go to Amazon, you be surprise how many fitting and terminal they carries, I used a 12V 30A automatic reset circuit breaker mounted below the regulator with one 12ga wires from starter relay , and connect all positive feed to the other terminal. It come with two post and plenty thread to stack up the terminals, at same time offers peace of mind with breaker in case of short. I purchased the 12V breaker, inline fuse holder, relays, terminal, shrink tube, splicer, and you need to try the silicone wires (super flexible and heat resistance). all @ Amazon.
