  • Center grill removal - 1975

    Pulled the radiator this morning for a R & R of water pump.  Now trying to remove the center grill, turning the fastener just allows it to spin and I'm not feeling a bolt head to up there behind the grill even if I could get the 8 mm wrench behind there. It feels smooth so not sure how to remove the fastener. I assume it's rusted together. Am I going to have to buy a Dremel and cut that sucker off?  I can't even figure out if that is one nut and a washer or a single piece.    Thank

    Cooling system issues

    Background - during the Vintage, my 2002 would trend towards overheating on city driving. Highways around Asheville wasn’t much of an issue, but outside of that it would climb and at around 215-220 I’d pull over and cool off for a half hour or so before driving off until it did it again.   I figured the thermostat was shot, so I ordered one which I finally got around to putting in today. The heater core is bypassed because of a leaking valve so I have the HC supply hose ducted to the HC retur

    Standalone ECU vote.

    I am looking to install a 318 manifold, injectors, and a turbo.  I need something for my daily, and want to manage a lot of inputs.  Looking for a vote on which one you would get.    Haltech:  $3K(ish) Pros: Well supported, seen as a premium brand.  Con's: Modular design results in a lot of extra modules to manage boost, injectors and coils.  Lots of dollars.    Holley HP: 2K Pros: All in one,  with built in boost controller and injector drivers.  Cons: On

  • M20 Out, Build Anxiety In

    Ever reach a point in your build where you start to wonder if it's ever going back together? This was that point for me. Totally necessary step, but kind of daunting all the same. Last weekend we pulled out the M20. We tried once before out the top of the car, and that proved to be literally impossible. The M20+G260 combo is simply too long to come out the top of the car. So we dropped it out the bottom with the subframe.      Per usual, I just didn't take many photos. I was

    The Car is DONE!!!!

    The car finally arrived back from shop.  It's not 100% yest, but its close to where we want it to be.   This is my uncle who gave me the car (for free) so my dad and I can work on it.  He is the original owner if the car.  Thanks to him, I now have my "Dream car"!     I made him drive it.   He drove it with his wife , and it brought back a lot of memories.
