  • Water Temperature Gauge Reading

    Started this question on the "What did you do..." thread and thought I'd move it hear.  The below pic shows my temp gauge reading after I've driven around a bit.  I measured this w/ an infrared thermometer which shows about 195 degrees.  It was a hot day and the coolant did not gotten above this temperature.  I'm curious what others experience and what their gauge shows.   Both the water pump and thermostat were replaced recently by a previous owner, and the radiator is not the origina

    Pre-heater - images of early version

    Hi Everyone   I did a search and not much luck with my effort. I'm looking for the early type I think that was a round canister and the square box. I'm trying to figure out if it was a simpler operation that the levered functioning square box version. Thanks as always.

  • Freeing Stuck Rear Brake Adjusters

    One of my least favorite jobs on a 2002 is adjusting the rear brake shoes in order to lessen the brake pedal travel. In principle, it's easy—you just pull off the rear wheels, take a 17mm open-end wrench, put it on each of the two adjusting nuts on the backing plate behind each brake drum, rotate the drum, turn the adjuster until you can hear and feel the shoe rubbing against the drum, back the adjuster off a tiny bit, do the other adjuster, then move to the other side and do the same on the oth

    Front Strut Replacement The Hack Mechanic Way

    Front Strut Replacement   Overview Okay. It's time to replace your front struts. Maybe you're doing it as part of a shocks-and-struts job. Maybe you're updating the entire suspension—shocks and struts, springs, and sway bars. Maybe you're doing a full front end refresh including ball joints, tie rods, center track link, and idler bushings. Maybe you're doing an undercarriage refresh and are sandblasting and repainting the subframe and strut housings at the same time.   W

    Chillin' Louie: To Coldly Blow (Part IX: Firing it up, buttoning it up)

    Okay, with the compressor and bracket, condenser and fan, evaporator assembly, receiver-drier, hoses, and wiring installed, it was time to fire it up, then button it up. Similarly, with the project itself complete, it's time to button up this series of articles. As such, this is a long piece that touches on a number of topics.   Leak detection   There's a whole chapter in my a/c book devoted to leak detection, and specifically to the use of nitrogen or other dry inert gas to

  • Bling from Germany

    With so many of the remaining tasks fighting me at the moment, it is nice to have one project go exactly as I planned it.  Although I don't have a radio plan in place for the 1600, I did have the issue of what to do with the 4 holes in the passenger side "A" pillar that supported the original radio antenna.  I figured I'd just find a old school antenna and install it in the existing holes and be done with it.  Turns out, there doesn't appear to be a universal mounting standard for 1970 radio ant

    Task Mastering: Heater Core & Wiper Assembly

    One of the first projects I knew I had to tackled when I got this 1971 seven months ago was getting the heater box out, to replace or renovate it. While I knew I would have to live without cooling in the summer, it was clear that the heater would have to work to make the car drivable in three other seasons.   The fan didn't operate, and I figured the motor was probably seized or broken, but I was a bit intimidated as a first-time restorer to deal with anything under the dash. But with

    Phase 3 - Carbon Fiber Time

    After the rust restoration got completed with Bart at The Resto Shop the car got transported down to Costa Mesa, California to Paul Lefevre the master mind behind The Son Of Cobra. A lot of you have seen Paul's mostly carbon fiber build. His car is a really special build and if you haven't seen it you can check out the specs HERE.   For my build I opt for the following from Paul:   -Carbon Fiber Hood w/ Aluminum Hood Pins -Carbon Fiber Trunk w/ Aluminum Hinges -Carb
