  1. That's the whole reason why I don't post much here anymore. Other members laughing about another owner of a 71-73 car. Embarrassing.
  2. I tried rebuilding the valve and it still leaked past the switch. I bought a new repop and have had no problems other than the bracket that attaches to the valve wasn't installed.
  3. The faster it sells the faster Amazon raises the price. Up to 23.99 now but its a best seller. It will probably be $45 tomorrow!
  4. David, Something to think about. That Marti shows an order date in February but the car wasn't built for over 8 months. There had to be a reason for the delay. An example to compare is this. In 1984 I ordered a corvette with the 4+3 transmission. It was a 4 speed manual with a 2 speed auto behind it. They were having problems with the auto transmission side during the production run and my order was put on hold. As I wouldn't change my order to the 700R4 trans I ended up waiting 4 extra months over the 700R4 cars. Maybe the odd Q code ram air is the reason for the 8 month wait.
  5. I put a donut spare in my Mustang. When I got a flat I put the spare on. 5 miles later the spare disintegrated, left me in a bad part of town, and I had to get a tow home. A flat donut spare you cannot get the jack under the car to lift it up. Lesson is those donut spares from the wrecking yard are too old already. Get a new one from a dealer or just call a tow truck.
  6. I drove my car 15k miles in one year. Wind noise won't be a problem as you will be parked in front of a gas pump most of the time.

  8. Need oil pressure gauge only. Mine has some of the lettering worn off.
  9. I had also used searchtempest and found a tube attached to a pump for sale on Craigslist in Detroit. I'll be ordering parts from Don as soon as the car can be moved from the side yard. Thanks everyone!
  10. I really don't want to make one. That is a sharp bend out of the pump and easy to kink. On top of having to get the tool, tube, and fittings while working the graveyard shift. Sometimes it is just more efficient to get a good original and for me this is one of those times. Just sucks because its holding me up from driving the car and I need to get it moved.
  11. Its the 6" bent line that goes from the back of the pump to the high pressure hose. Somehow I lost mine.
  12. jbojo is right. Set the idle with the solenoid. Make sure it is energized when doing so. Once the ignition is shut off the solenoid dis-engages and fully closes the carb to keep the engine from dieseling. I've added the feature to any carb I use. Just works well.
  13. I had two thermostats. Manu and Tim will get those shipped to them. They were first, in Europe, and I'm going to Weimar Germany in December for a wedding. So I'll PM Tim soon. I don't even have a spare thermostat now. Others have PM'd me but their messaging is turned off so I can't respond.
  14. My new business takes cash so I'm selling extra things I have. Won't help much but anything is better than nothing. NOS seat belt lights $55 shipped. I also have NOS paper tubes that go from the evap cannister to the air cleaner. Have one or two 351C correct thermostats as well. Not sure on price on those. I'll list other things as time permits.
  15. I have a Benz. Its really not that quiet. But it will go 240 thousand miles before the timing chain breaks. If you want quiet ride in a Lincoln town car.
