  1. I see a couple on Ebay, a green one and black one, check there.
  2. Don C has it right, it is a plastic tab you push down. I struggled with trying to spin it off for 20 minutes and finally I accidently pushed the tab down and it popped off simple. I was pretty frustrated until it came off then I felt kind of dumb, but you cant really see in there so. . . Good luck, I just replaced mine a month ago.
  3. I agree the healthcare issue is bad, it all started when Hillary was fist lady. She stated pushing more government involvement in healthcare. I'm self employed and have been paying my own premiums since 2000. Every time there is a health care give away conversation from the Libs premiums jump more then usual. The HMOs all knew the government was eventually going to force everyone to have healthcare insurance, so they just kept jacking up rates until the Feds eye turned toward them but that didn't slow them down, only more excuses. There was no provision in the ACA to stop raising premiums, way to go. Since the ACA came out my premiums go up at least 10% a year. For 2021 I will pay $ 14,000 in premiums. For that privilege I get a $12,000 copay. If I paid more in premiums my copay would go down. To make it even more frustrating, through income taxes, I get to pay a portion of everyone's health care that wont go to work and get their own insurance. The Obama healthcare reform was not reform it was a new tax. If you want health care reform get rid of HMOs and let everyone pay their own premiums, then you will see prices come down. I feel for you David. Why aren't you on the ACA?
  4. Thanks Don, I had the speedo out toubleshooting the issue and . . . put it back in. Thanks for the bad news buddy, lol. Ill go pull it again and put some air throught the cable.
  5. My speedo is jumping and instead of replacing the 40 year old cable, I bought just the core. I thought it would be easy, pull the cable from the tranny, pull the core and push in the new one in. There is no video or instructions anywhere to be found. (Maybe im not researching it well). So I pulled out the cable from the tranny, pulled off the end gear then I tried pulling the cable core but it wont come out. I pulled pretty hard but I dont want to break anything at the speedo end. Does anyone have experience with just replacing the core cable? Any advice would be helpful. This is what I bought. https://www.npdlink.com/product/cable-core-speedometer-130-inch-diameter-81-inch/150968/80571 Thanks

  10. Is this worth the dollars? I have a pretty stock motor but would like to change my 2v intake to a 4v without any other mods so I can pick up a few HP. I would change out my 2V carb for a 4v Carb, but the question is abou this intake. Thanks for your input. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Blue-Thunder-Ford-351C-Cleveland-Pantera-4-Barrel-Intake-With-Casting-Numbers/283865218299?hash=item4217af7cfb:g:S5UAAOSwD9JeHRSC
