Finally had a nice sunny day in San Francisco decided to go on a ice coffee run. On the way back on a main road I notice I have no gas pedal, luckily the auto trans is still in put it in the lowest gear and it started creeping it’s way on. Found the linkage had fallen out of position. Luckily I had a bolt and nut in the right size, I dont know what originally sits in there but it got me home. Anyone know what’s missing?

Once home decided to remove the rocker trim and clean and grind away any rust spots, treated the rust with rust reformer and sealed with Duplicolor Rust Barrier in black. Came out pretty good in my opinion

What’s happening with your brake booster?

 

The throttle rod floats between the carb and the firewall. I would take a good look at your engine mount on the left hand side as the engine moving excessively would allow the rod to ‘escape’.

It’s disconnected for now, I believe the diaphragm is torn, smoke tested and all the smoke went right through and out the rear. As for the motor mounts I did replace them about 3 months ago with the IE heavy duty set so they should okay, will do a quick bolt / nut check tomorrow

Check the bracket on the subframe as well. This is a common issue where it breaks, cracks and causes additional vibration.

The carb spacer/gasket looks like its falling apart should probably change. Your engine bay looks way better now

After the long battle with door weatherstripping. Decided to give up the glued seals and used MINI R60 seals.

^ “OEM” seal vs R60 seal.

Works well, obviously not as good as original. Had the seals available from a previous job. I would say it fits, worked well for me thought I’d share new info. The seal was mounted directly to the lip where the gray trim would go.
