  1. BigDuke6; I have a 351W with the Edelbrock RPM package (same 60259 heads), 10.8 comp and a Crane HI-6 igintion system. I remember going to a colder plug, I think it was from NGK FR5 to a NGK BKR6E. I have them gapped at 0.050" or 1.3 mm. I remember that helped the engine alot. I run 98 RON gasoline (Shell V-Power) that is perhaps the same you get in Germany, or do you use 100 RON ?

    69 coupe from SVK

    Good work so far! Nice to see another european on the board.
  3. If originality isn't important, have a look at the KRC PS pumps. They have both cast iron and aluminum pumps, so the price range is pretty broad. The cool thin about them is that the flow valve are changeable for flow tuning.
  4. All '69 FBs has them. '70 does not.

    Spark Plug/Wires Recommendations

    I've always used NGK plugs and Crane/FAST FireWire. They have a super low 25 ohms resistance. After I found the spark plug that works for me I forgot everything I knew about spark heat ranges. But other than the white tip, that plug looks nice.

    Completed some oil pans

    Nice work, but what application are they intended for? I have a Moroso Road Race pan. I had to modify it to keep oil flowing over and out of the trap-door diamond at hard breaking. I discovered this was a problem at a road course. Original. Modified. Dimples are for the oil pump bolts.
  7. I have used flickr to host my pictures. They give you space for 1000 pictures for free. After that you have to buy Pro membership. My bulid thread is 6 years old and 19 pages long. I just had to get Pro at new years, so it will last a long time until you have to get Pro. And Pro was ok priced, you do get discounts at a lot of webshops for camera and picture stuff. They also have an app, so you can upload pictures directly from the phone. Easy to use. Drag-and-drop uploading in the web browser.
  8. The floor at the seat riser is double bottomed, so SFCs cannot interfere. Convertible rockers will take up some real estate, but it should be minimal up on the seat riser. I cannot see that it should be a problem.

    Gas Tank Pressure

    I replaced the cork with the foam from a plug in type gas cap that you get at gas stations. It sealed the tank, so I got fuel starvation. so I made a notch in it to let it vent. Didn't take much, and haven't had any spills since.
  10. Well, it used to be Candyapple red. These are some photos I got from an PO. I have more, but there are people in them, so I don't know if I should post them. The current color is a SEAT color called Rojo Dehli Effect. SEAT is owned by Volkswagen. This is the next to oldest picture I have of the car, Mt Home Air Force Base, Idaho, 1984. Newly restored in 1989. Gresham Theater, Portland. 1992. Mt. Tabor, Portland, 1993. The day I bought it. 03.13 2004. It had a similar color to what I have now. I had it photograpehed at a paint shop years ago with a 100% match to a Mazda color. But I don't know what it was called. It was painted that color after 1999, but had been a metallic red from 1995.

    Yeah, I agree.

    69 front valance same as 1970?

    I don't think they are flush. There's a gap that is covered by the bumper. They need to match at the wheel arch. This is a repro valance. The OEMs fit better.
