  1. I mailed him some Ohio license plates when you were in the US and stopped to visit him!
  2. It looks chebby with the dizzy in the butt
  3. Sold. Going to a good home as soon as I can get to a UPS store :)
  4. Welcome to the Forum! My Mother's family was from Weirton. They lived up in Marlin Heights. There's a street up there named after my Grandfather, who was one of the founders of the Williams Country Club. He was a banker, and was instrumental in developing Marlin Heights, back in the day. It's great that your son takes an interest in your hobby!
  5. Last year I used dryer sheets and peppermint oil on cotton balls. The peppermint oil seems to work really well. I will be doing the same thing this year. Plus 1 to the pepermint oil. You want pure extract... It lasts longer than oil. A few drops on a cotton ball inside foil... Poke with toothpick to make small holes. Rodents hate pepermint. But you'll need to refresh them every month or so. If you're lazy, you can put the extract in a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol and spray the undercarriage.
  6. I also did mine without moving the PS pump. My wrench was short, and I only got about an eighth of a turn then had to flip the wrench and do another eigth of a turn... Took about a half hour just to get the top bolt out. When putting the new one in, you may want to have someone tap the ignition switch to turn the engine over just slightly to align the cam shaft such that there isn't any pressure on the fuel pump's armature. Might be a good idea to disconnect the coil to be sure the engine doesn't start, though.
  7. Beautiful car! 1973 convertibles didn't come with NASA hoods and rear spoilers either. Although, mine has both now:)
  8. I had the same problem, and ended up just unplugging the switch until I get the chance to figure it out
  9. Anyone going? http://www.roadamerica.com/buy-tickets/the-hawk-with-brian-redman-vintage-cars.html We are driving up Friday to visit friends for the weekend. The car show Saturday evening is pretty awesome.
  10. :bravo: Great to see you getting back on the road!
  11. IIRC, a 3.8 with the overdrive is just about the same as the FMX with a 2.75. You should be right at the sweet spot! I'm running a 3.93 rear end with my wide ratio AOD, and at 70MPH, I'm at about 2,700 RPMS.
  12. Yes, very common. Try putting a small blob of grease on the end of the screw driver, and use the grease to keep the shaft centered.
  13. I love the smell of new server in the morning.... Smells like... victory...
  14. For a documented single owner car with less than 100K miles, I think the price is pretty fair.
  15. Don't forget the air compressor and air horns. I always wanted to put a train locomotive air horn on the truck I had. Then scare the crap out of anyone who tailgates me :)
  16. I would love to be able to travel back in time and meet Ben Franklin. He also said "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."
  17. Wow! Very cool!!!!! That's on my bucket list now. Thanks for posting that!
  18. While I'm really sad to see Kit's knowledge leave us, I have to say I saw this coming since he joined. Within days of him joining, he locked horns with someone and then came back, started a new "I'm outta here" thread... dissing this place and its members. Then, he came back, and acted all magnanimous. I saw this coming a LONG time ago. I'll miss his knowledge, but not his ego. I'm a moderator on a big gun related board, and really curse the day I agreed to do so. You can never keep everyone happy, especially people who have huge egos and short tempers. Too bad it had to happen. I believe the staff here handled it with fairness and dignity.
  19. Very impressive! Thanks for journaling your restoration!
  20. Nice! I sold my Fleming HK sear in order to buy my '73 vert! Be sure to post some pics of your new pony!!!
