I'm at a total of 2 coils cut at this point and can't imagine that I should have to cut more to make it look right but still seems to sit a little high. I have 215/40/16 on now but I'm thinking 215/55/would make it look appropriate. Is that too big?

It's hard to see the difference but the one coil dropped it one inch even.

 

 What springs are you cutting that gives you these results?

There’s 2 of them. 👍 The red one is a gasser. The green one is a diesel.

So for grins on my gas stinking trunk, I used a bar of Ivory soap around the edge of the tank. Still mounted in the trunk just to see if anything would happen.  Open trunk today and 85% of smell is gone.    Looks like I'm pulling a tank over the winter,got a be the seams for sure I would think.

 

Years ago a, endurance racing a fireman told us you can rub Ivory Soap on a gas tank leak and the fat content will seal it for quite awhile.  Ivory worked the best  cause 99% pure.  Worked great on the car we racing at the time.

If you cut your dog's nails too short and they bleed, you can rub soap into the end of the nail to stop the bleeding as well.

Motor mount swapped. Now time for radiator and fan.

Oh, and the new mount didn't come with this wierd bracketey thing... Oh well, must be an updated version ! 4da85d555cb7a718a5d1b561c826678f.jpg&key=4dc5a3b32943d680950a22ab3af422d2dbfbd394764b53d362635add7e982f186fccf206d302269182be6ab2dcd1bad6.jpg&key=f36beb7c939f2e614b1758282e17a25edb0ea7c0ad85e2119a72c10ba4100cbb

Reinstalled and tuned DCOE 40s. 38 DGES just wasn't doing it for me. The motor (bored to 92mm, stroked with an M3 crank, clicky-clacking with a Schrick cam and a 123 jingle-jangler) loves the 40s. Things are a bit rich at idle, but it goes like stink with no hesitation or flat spot, right up to red line. Sounds much better as well. Vintage prep complete. See you all next May in Asheville.

You need to re-use that part, hopefully you installed it.  There's a spec distance it needs to be from the mount, it's a travel limiter
