    Bucking, Hesitation & Backfire!

    it turns out it was a spark plug wire. i installed new plug wires a week ago and after inserting them through the ignition tube i didn't tighten one of the wires into the ceramic connecter very well. i tightened the wire down into the connector, checked the other wires and the car runs great! your suggestions made me go back and check my work...thanks for the help.
  4. does anyone have the part number for the water hose choke connection from intake to the engine block (see attached photo)? i've searched and i can't find anywhere. i guess i could pick up 3/8 hose just not sure if i need to go with preform hose. thanks in advance.

    Bucking, Hesitation & Backfire!

    thank you all for the feedback...i'll dive in this weekend and let you know how i make out.
  6. My car starts and runs fine but if I shut it off for 15 minutes or more i get a weird problem that quickly corrects itself. the car starts fine, but as soon as i move through the gears the car bucks a little, hesitates and backfires for about 100 yards and then all of a sudden the car runs great. my '74 has a relatively new weber, cap, rotor, points, condenser, plugs, wires, coil, gas filter etc. i've had the car for 36 years and know it extremely well and I have never had anything like this happen before. i get that there could be many things to cause the bucking, hesitation and backfire but why does it all of sudden clear itself and run great? i've replaced various parts (condenser & gas filter) to see if that changed things but no luck. your thoughts would be appreciated.

    Late Model 2002tii Clock

    Anyone have a late model 2002tii clock that’s not working for parts? I have a clock that needs a gear or two and i’m hoping that between the two I can get one working. Thanks.

    Lower Steering Column Trim

    WTB - i'm looking for the lower steering column pad (trim) for '74. hopefully as close to mint/excellent condition as possible. thanks. -steve
  10. my lower steering column cover which holds the choke cable is cracking. does anyone know if the aluminum cover version that came on the earlier cars fits a 1974? thanks. -steve
  11. (no benefit to me) i know some of us are into watches so i thought this might be of interest. i just came across nezumi studios nezumistudios.com. he’s a stockholm based designer who has created some truly beautiful vintage inspired racing style watches. i just picked up and received one of his lap timers and chronographs. the design and workmanship are excellent. he also created a very cool car too! check out his video- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTTDn-NDoOAjPFe85wIw9Fw

    Urethane Steering Coupler

    any tips on where i can learn how to do this? thanks for your resonse.
  14. Please check out the photo- my car is parked and the steering wheel is in an unlocked position, why does my coupler sit uneven? is this normal? i did rebuilt the box a couple months back and replaced the stock coupling with urethane. steering box works great but i do notice what feels like the coupling twisting a bit when i'm driving. thanks.
