  1. In my green Sportsroof, I made a mistake and placed new Monroe Shocks....these had me bottoming out at the front - they also turned my 71 into a waterbed I re-loaded with KYB - a bit more expensive ... but definitely a better ride at rear I put gas adjustable to raise the rear 1"
  2. Big welcome and nice project to have My first piece of advice is the base 3 ... Make a list of all the jobs Try and list out all the things each job will require Cost it out - and prepare a budget From these basic steps one can prioritise and plan to take on the mountain of work one piece at a time. And in these forums - no question is a dumb question - loads of people here with a wealth of experience ...don't be afraid to ask
  3. OMG guys -- I'm getting all blubbery -- anyone from the forces - You guys are the tops in our house.
  4. Worst thought is timing chain guides - tensioner shenanigans? Also Inside that front blue block, just behind your watery impeller, is also the lobe for actuating the fuel pump -- is it fuel pump actuator slap back onto the front lobe.. ....has one recently fitted a cheap and cheerful aftermarket fuel pump (c'mon fess up ) ? or is it 50 years old in which case one of the return springs no longer has tension and the actuator is slapping around? Just for information sake... the actuator on the original fuel pumps have spring tension in both directions of the actuator arm... the weezly cheap aftermarket tin-pot one's have only tension back to the lobe - causing slap...the designers, of course, having the IQ of a chair leg and the intellect of a bicycle.
  5. Good job --- I did mine a while back - .. got a mouth full of F type ....YUK ! ! !! pan slipped, ran down arm ... ran into my gaping open face... now Strawberry's taste of Blueberries. WTF !
  6. I have a saying -- "Putting on the uniform is above and beyond -- what they do after that, is astonishing ." If you are from a forces family or been in service directly -- shout out My dad Below - pilot flying Vulcan's out of Waddington, Lincoln, UK. Flt LT Clarke
  7. Serviced my Amplifier because it farted at me in the rudest possible manner when I turned it on Complex electronics should not suffer from chronic flatulence
  8. Why don't I know enuff ???????.. all I know is that is a 4 bolt mains Cleveland But when it comes to stripping down engines and making them perfect - I have as much knowledge and talent as a chair leg. What comp cam is best (numbers) - - how to adjust the mechanical/electrical timing to suit - what plenum? - what carb? what headers? ,... etc...etc ... how do you know what to use? You guys just seem to naturally know ... Frieberger and Finnegan on Roadkill make it look and sound so easy. ...so what is the best set up to make a Cleveland 351 spin the planet the other way ? and make my neighbours move to another country?
  9. I wonder if its a lube thing -- they would have had a tiny amount of light machine oil spindles on some rotary parts. ... and as the years rock by that stuff can go sticky instead of slippery as the clock has 0.0000001 horsepower - it might not be able to over come its own mechanical impedances any more.... just needs a service .
  10. Then...then....then.... BooooM! ! !...then crack open a beer like a real man
  11. That caught me out with my Green one -- and this is the problem when a previous owner had also been dicking about with the wiring -- I ordered new and what I got was 2 prong... I tried to install to drivers side and found 3x wires. one terminated out by previous owner... I learned the "don't assume you're working with originality" lesson here.
