  2. Trico classics are pretty nice!!
  3. Start with baseline stock and tune to suit in my humble opinion. That way you can tailor to your specific needs. there are a lot of variables and compromises to consider alon the way to achieve your desired results.
  4. Perhaps rear wheel cylinders/calipers are seized....I would test drive to see if you can free them up. If not rust may have developed rust rings preventing piston travel in the cylinders, or calipers. Brake fluid is hygroscopic and will make rust your enemy in 2002 brake systems. Also the rubber brake hoses can close up similar to cholesterol. If your master is putting out fluid, then physically check rear bake cylinders for movement. adjust shoes while there etc. Good luck!

    Safety wire bolt source?

    Other than drilling out M8 bolt heads in a jig made for that. you could always order 32211113178 bolts from the dealer.

    72 shift lever retainer spring ring

    Following up here, I decided to radius the area near the small split already cut into the lever toward feed side of spring clip and got to hear the magical click! Found that the added clearance was all I needed to finalize! Thanks for all your help guys!!
  10. The part numbers for those lights varied with addition of the black rings for the later cars and part number changed with simply deleting those rings to adapt to the pre 74 cars.. The lamp assembly floats in their mounting holes assuming you examined that, look for the rubber gaskets adhered to the mounting surface if applied and substitute with thinner or no gasket pads mounted it should gain you some additional clearance. Additionally tighten down the headlight to full torque after aligning the light assembly. When satisfied with alignment of light assembly retry the hook mount and try look for binding or stresses on the grille. Carefully bend where necessary I believe it was necessary back in the day to meld grilles to the car. Good luck let us know the results.

  14. Hey guys just wondering what you used to compress the expanding spring locking ring that secures the upper lever assembly. I`m having a difficult time compressing and locking the lever down. Thanks !!
