  1. If you have a later 71 and you have just a single radiator to grille support bracket instead of the two that Matt showed in the post above I would be interested in it if he is not. Thanks, Lance
  2. I need a radiator to grille support bracket. It's the tall part under the hood latch. Is that available?
  3. I can't seem to find a description or part number for it anywhere. I'm not even sure what to call it. It's the tall vertical support that is under the Hood latch and bracket. This pic is from the "72 car shop manual volume IV Body". I am in need of a replacement. If anyone could assist me in finding one (maybe just telling me what to call it so I can search for it better) or if anyone has one they are willing to part with please let me know.
  4. I have two body panels up for sale. Re-pop front passenger fender was bent in shipping, (four inches of the top back corner are bent at a 90deg angle and the front corner from the bottom of the wheel well to the upper front corner are creased badly. Maybe the rest of the sheet metal is the portion you need? Re-pop rear lower qtr panel not bent at all, just a few surface scratches in the primer coat. I can send pics if requested. I don't need these, and I need the space they are taking up. I'm in San Antonio, TX and would prefer not to have to ship them anywhere. Let me
  5. I found that there was a vacuum port running from the front side of the intake manifold but the hose attached to it was stuck onto a hex shaped end of a bolt on the carburetor. That had to be a really good seal, lets put a hexagon in a round hole and hope none of the air gets by. :-/ I was thinking this might be the vacuum hose that should have been attached to the vacuum advance port. So I reattached it there. When I took it for a test drive the car was running like crap. so I pulled over and put the hose back where it was. She went back to normal. I have since capped off the port o
  6. Thanks Jpaz. I have read that and it is on the list of things to do. Hopefully, In about a month we will be starting the big tear down for paint and the engine will be coming out at that time. I will make sure it is gone when the engine goes back in.
  7. I just noticed there is an empty vacuum port on top if the vacuum advance valve. Can anyone tell me if this should be plugged or if it should be connected somewhere else? http://www.lancelotsworkshop.com/images/forum/geraldine/20200221_110758b.jpg[/img]
  8. Wow! Kindig is proud of his parts! I wonder if you could use actual Tesla model 3 door handles. I looked on ebay. You can pick them up for about $100 each. They are electric switches instead of mechanical so you would need door lock actuators but they are cheap and if you are going to shave the locks anyway that seems like a cool way to go.
  9. It is the FMX Auto trans. The PO had the transmission rebuilt within the last year also.
  10. Thanks for all the replies. You guys have given me enough ideas on what to check next that I should be busy for a while. I'll keep you informed on what I find.
  11. Hey all, I'm having a problem with my car surging while at highway cruising speeds. I think it's anything above 40mph or so. I have read other posts about surging and haven't really found anything describing what I have. It's not threatening to die or cut out. It sounds great at idle. It does have a bad hesitation when accelerating from idle, but I don't know if that's a different issue or part of the same. It's a 351C 2v with a rebuilt 2 brl Carb that the PO installed within the last year. I have tried spraying a modest amount of carb cleaner around the vacuum lines to see if
  12. Hello all, Its been a few weeks since I got the rear end back under Geraldine so I have been putting this update off as I debate whether or not to share the HUGE mistake I made that could have been disastrous. Thankfully, God was watching out for us and all turned out well without any real damage. I'll get into all that a little later. (yeah, yeah, I know, I grabbed your attention and now I'm making you wait... That's Life. I have to keep my ratings up somehow. :D ) When I last left off I had pulled the rear end, inspected and put it all back together. I then took a wire wheel and
  13. I might be interested in a lot of the interior moldings etc. What color are they? what kind if shape are they in?
