  1. What brand/who sells the best replacement carpet kits? I purchased one through CJ's, but the fit is lackluster and the molded parts are off enough that the carpet will not lay flat.
  2. Did some searching... Now that I have the 71 up and running, my son won't quit driving his new ride. I'll bet he has put 500 miles on it since last Sunday. Last night when he got home, the ignition key would not turn all the way back to the arrow. It turns back enough to kill the car, but not enough to take the key out. To complicate things, the car was once an auto that has been converted to a 5 speed. From what I read, sounds like there is a "lock rod" inside the column?
  3. Ha! No, I haven't because I like to make things more complicated than they need to be. Sometimes the possible solutions are too obvious.
  4. Tony - Thanks for the pictures. My bracket is similar to what you have with the York/Sanden adapter. however, it sits much lower than your compressor. I will try don's suggestion, but ultimately, I think i will fab a fixed idler like what you have and move the whole thing forward to run off the front crank pulley. Thanks Don! I will tighten it up and see what happens.
  5. Have P/S but the compressor bracket does not have enough rear-ward movement... Car was factory air, so i would just rather buy the factory air brackets and tensioner with the York to Sanden mount. i think...
  6. Reviving this one... I installed a CCA kit on a 71 that was missing all the factory compressor brackets. I reluctantly ran the A/C compressor belt off the Alt. as recommended using their supplied Sanden adjustable bracket. After 30 miles the belt melted from getting so hot and came apart. Towed the car home because of course, now I had no alt. Replaced the belt and checked for trueness using a long metal straight edge and made an adjustment to the compressor mount. Belt is still getting smoking hot. Thoughts? Doesn't seem too tight. Got about 1" up and down.
  7. Sold, sold, sold! Local buyer. Thanks for the interest RacerX and AL...
  8. I have a set of 4 Magnum 500 wheels with decent 245/60/15's on them. Wheels have some rust and need to be cleaned up as well as the black centers repainted. $100 takes all four. Local pick-up in Dallas/Fort Worth or shipped on your dime and arrangements
  9. Hello everyone... Is it normal for the turn signals to work when the key is in accessory mode (turned backwards) I am having a heck of a time with the new stereo I installed for my son and noticed this while trying to troubleshoot. I some of my searches, it looks like the white/purple stripe that I thought powered the original AM radio ties into the turn signal circuit?? I pulled switched power off this circuit for the new stereo but am now thinking that may have not been a good idea... Lots of crackling through the speakers and the amp goes into protected mode when you turn up the
  10. Love the look here! Would you mind sharing the details on the B/S and O/S as well as the tire size? All stock suspension? Any rubbing issues? Thanks!
  11. I did perform a search and came up with nothing... I will try what you suggest. Thanks!
  12. Anyone running a 17" or bigger wheel? If so, what width wheel and tire combo? Any pics would be super cool as well. Trying to figure out which way we want to go on the 71...
