  1. Glad to hear that your mechanic has found the problem. He sounds very thorough and reliable. Hopefully it was just the one bad bearing and nothing else. Good luck with the next rebuild!
  2. I was using this place for getting ammo, but now I hand load all my ammo and I find my components from here. https://ammoseek.com/reloading/powder
  3. There’s only one bar that fits a car with competition suspension, which is the .875 or the 7/8” one. The .75, 3/4” bar is for cars without competition suspension. Cars without the comp. suspension have both shocks on the same side of the axle.
  4. It’s from Addco. I sent them my original bar and they revised the original one they had. Stanglover got a new revised one also. It really does make my car handle so much better around the corners. And if you haven’t done so already I definitely recommend getting the 1 1/8” front sway bar too. My car drives and handles so much better than before, it’s quite noticeable. Thanks, John
  5. Here’s the latest version of the rear sway bar for our cars.
  6. I’m still all bandaged up, but not in as much pain. I go back to see surgeon tomorrow, so hopefully they can remove some more of the big bandages from me. They are messing up my suntan! Lol. I’m getting better, just a slow process. Thanks for checking on me 1sostatic, I really appreciate it!
  7. Thanks for more well wishes guys. I actually took the Mach out for a drive to make me feel better, and it worked! Best I felt all day.
  8. Thanks for all the kind words guys, very much appreciated! Been hurting pretty bad last couple days after they took out the staples. And getting another prescription for pain meds was a bit of a pain, lol, but I got it taken care of. Anyway, thanks again!
  9. So I had a little accident on the 4th of July. I tripped and fell into a bonfire. 🤬 Was at my sisters house on a lake that they had just moved into early this year. Was by myself at the time, so that made it worse. I was barefoot and I smashed one of my toes into the corner of a brick paver. Got a bum leg from a previous accident, and of course that’s the one I hit. It put me right up against the brick pavers which were knee high and I lost my balance and went right into the fire. My left arm hit on the sharp edge of a piece of firewood and split my forearm wide open. That arm is already mostly paralyzed from the same accident that I broke my leg all up, so I couldn’t push out. Was kinda stuck, couldn’t roll out over the brick pavers so I had to put my right hand into the fire to push up and out. Son of a Bitch! I didn’t know what to do so I went into the lake and sat in there for a few minutes, then made it up to the house which is quite a hike up a hill. Then my sister and brother in law took me to the closest hospital. They couldn’t do anything for me there, so I had to go to the burn unit in Detroit. They rushed me by ambulance to there, but I don’t remember that. Was in the ER for 22 hours waiting to get a bed in a regular room. That was quite a trip in there, wow! Anyway I had surgery the next morning, everything went good and they didn’t have to do any skin grafts! Was in Detroit Receiving Hospital for 4 days and then they sent me home. I have 3rd degree burns on my left arm and a spot on my left side of my back. Then the rest of the burns on my left side are 2nd degree. I also have 2nd degree burns on the palm of my right hand and arm. I think I put my hand on the steel ring that was in the fire pit to help me get out. Was looking forward to finally going to car shows and all the fun that goes along with summer. Not sure how long this will take to heal and will probably always be in pain from it. Just what I needed, more pain.😢 That’s about it I guess, thanks to anyone for taking the time to read through this!

    New guy!

    Hello and Welcome from Michigan. 72 gt? Never heard of that before. Let’s see some pics
  11. I have a carpet that is supposed to be for our year cars. I also use a folding chair to hold my tool box and first aid kit in. I always try to wedge whatever I put in the against each other to help keep stuff flying around. No filler piece on the ends either, but I’m sure you could make something easily for there if you wanted. And when I take my car to the golf course I just turn the chair sideways and push it forward. Then I can get my clubs in and everything stays put pretty good. I don’t bother carrying a spare tire when I’m close to home. If I was traveling far away, then I would want a spare. But I pretty much hang around town.
  12. Wow, unbelievable! To many people just don’t care about other people’s stuff. I sure hope hope nothing else is damaged and your carb is working properly.
  13. Sure hope all goes well and that you will be happy! Good luck with everything you have to move and safe travels.
  14. I have a filter that comes apart and I can clean the screen in it. I did that when I made the new steel line.
  15. It’s all fixed and even better than b4
  16. Ok I may have been mistaken about the bad gas. I think I had run my fuel line too close to the front of the block. I moved it some, but still had some more vapor lock issues. I have now added a 1/2 phenolic spacer and that raised the fuel line and wow! My engine really likes that after I re-tuned it. I didn’t really hammer it too much, but it is even more responsive than it was. Anyway I’m pretty sure that the fuel percolating is done.
  17. Hello and Welcome from Michigan. Very cool that you got to buy it back!
  18. I have them on my car and love em! They work great and look good too. I used some small black binder clips to make sure they stay put.
