  1. Brake Bleeding with New Hose and Master Cylinder

    Yes. Also check the rear adjustments. I had spongy brakes for a year and gallons of fluid bled through till a shop adjusted the rear adjusters and magically everything was suddenly perfect.
  2. Hot-Spark Ignition conversion question

    You remove the points from inside the distributor and the condenser from the side of the distributor. Hot sparks screws into the inside of the distributor where the points used to be. Wire the hot spark by putting positive and negative to the coil.
  3. Mystery ground wire

    Alternator can ground off the mounting bolts as well, that wire is just extra precaution. However you should attach it to one of the timing cover bolts.
  4. Mystery (to me) electrical bits

    Son of Marty is correct 1) Emissions counter box 2) Brake bias switch 3) Unknown emissions wire. Blue sheath is for the emissions items. Which coil do you have? If you have a blue coil, likely the wire in the picture is the resistance wire which has to be bypassed if you run a blue coil.
  5. '75 turbo (4290652) FS in Houston

    Drivers Source have 2 turbos for sale. A white and silver one. Some local collectors have driven both cars.
  6. Should I worry about this spring??

    Strut tops are cheap. Struts are cheap. Springs are more expensive. If you are on a tight budget, replace the strut top and the strut and keep the stock spring. The spring is probably the thing in best condition. The strut and the strut top are probably shot!
  7. Should I worry about this spring??

    There should be only a single nut on the strut. You tighten it by holding the top of the strut with an adjustable wrench and then tightening the nut with a wrench.
  8. Should I worry about this spring??

    That was difficult to understand. But I think what you are saying is that the center nut attached to the strut is loose. Yes you should worry. Tighten the nut back up with a wrench and a hex key. The springs are probably fine but might be time for new struts and hat.
  9. There is the brake pressure switch just behind the brake booster in the engine bay. Start there. As you press on the brakes, the switch is released turning on the brake lights. The switch might be fouled and not releasing. Cheap and easy to replace.
  10. AC Options...

    If you have a working center console (Evaporator and blower motor), then you are in a good position. Grab a Hobbie dave AC bracket and plumb in a modern sanden 508 compressor with modern condenser and lines. You will have the whole thing up and running for $400.
  11. I originally ran 1 PC680 under back seat but when i went through a stage when my engine liked to randomly not start and crack forever, after a minute of cranking the battery was done. I added a second PC680 just for extra cranking time. Never looked back. 4 years later and i have never had to trickle charge or boost them or even do maintenance.
  12. Blue sheathed wiring

    On a 76 you will have atleast 3 wires left. A power wire for the coil (resistance wire), the negative which goes to the tachometer and then the oil pressure wire.
  13. Window gap

    I did put a drop of super glue on the flap to hold them in
  14. Window gap

    There are 4 caps 1 front and one rear on each door. Each corner has a different part number. All 4 parts are in the link I gave you. You do not remove anything. They just press into the gap.
  15. Window gap
