  1. Took a look and this was what I saw on it. BTW, I like this idea of being able to manually control the flaps. Question: Does this valve bleed off the vacuum in the line when de-energized? Answer: Yes, when deenergized.
  2. Noticed the Christmas lights blinking on the page tonight. Don't know if this was posted on another thread but I got a kick breaking them with the mouse cursor tonight. Anyway, Merry Christmas everyone!
  3. Here's my Marti. 3F05Q8_dlxrpt.pdf
  4. Welcome from TriCities WA. I like the color! BTW, our cars were released on the same day. -bojo
  5. I don't think that it provides any measurable performance increase, it's just meant to get cooler air (more dense) to the motor instead of drawing from a hot engine compartment. Keeping the actuator doors connected keeps rain water/dirt from entering your air cleaner when doing normal driving. Only when accelerating quickly or motor off will the hood doors be open. The solenoid in the air cleaner snorkel will draw air from the top of the exhaust manifold during cold starts or from engine compartment while driving after the motor has warmed up. During hard acceleration the outside ambient air enters the air cleaner and provides some positive pressure to force the hot engine air back out through the snorkel and into the engine compartment so that you have cooler/denser air entering the carb. I think that was the design concept but in reality it only provides minimal performance increase, just the cool factor is gained :-)
  6. Through Hagerty I pay $15.66 per thousand.
  7. Got my T-shirt today and it looks really nice. I would buy some more if you decide to do a second run in a lighter color.
  8. Enjoy your trip!!! The Great Ocean Road is a not to miss site seeing trip. If you schedule a tour with a company I would recommend Oceania Tours and Safaris and ask for Ricarda. She does a great tour and takes you to places that others often miss.
  9. My 5 speed tranny was delivered today and took 4 yrs to get but I think it was worth the wait. The shifter was moved back 6 inches and raised by about the same amount by using a dogbone plate mounted on the front mounting point to get the proper placement.. This was unique to the Roadrunners with bench seats from 1971 on. The .70 overdrive and 4.10 rear should work well together on the freeways. All B and E body cars with bucket seats had the shifter mounted to the tailshaft either in the forward or rear spot.
  10. My 73 was made on 6/28/1973 I was 22 when it was made and bought it on 9/20/73
  11. I have one, it is powered coated gray. I'll see if I can get a pic if you are interested. Mine is actually a dark gray/black never installed. It is an Edelebrock Torker for 351C 4v, a little dusty from being stored for a few years. Attached a top and bottom pic.
  12. I have one, it is powered coated gray. I'll see if I can get a pic if you are interested.
  13. They are molded so I believe that it is plastic. They do make these grips in other materials such as carbon fiber and other shades of wood. Just an FYI they also have the old shifters used in Mustangs if you anyone is in the market for a replacement.
  14. Tires that I plan to use are: FRT - G60-15 Goodyear Rear - L60-15 Goodyear Rims will be Black steel that were standard for the car with hubcaps. Car will look something like this with a half black vinyl top and turn down exhausts, not the machine gun type that many of these cars had. Color is Curious Yellow. What do you guys think?
  15. Here is an original A833 tranny. You really can't tell the difference between the new 5 speed and the old 4 speed if you don't look at them closely. The obvious difference is that the new has an aluminum casing while the old is steel. What they did was to design the overdrive gear to use the reverse lever so they maintained the same appearance, that lever has 2 functions instead of 1 now. The benefit is that besides keeping the original looks you don't have to chop up the cars tunnel to install the other 5 and 6 speed trannies that are available now.
