    do you still have that rear bumper? I saw your post but wasn't clear if the parts were ever picked up. Thanks in advance - i'll be in NoVA this weekend so could pick up.

    Looking for short rear bumper

    Hey there folks - looking for a short rear bumper for my 76. I'm in Richmond VA so ideally you're located somewhere I can pickup but I have used Greyhound to ship a rear seat across the country. Open to any situation. Not looking for concourse condition but would like for it to be free of rust and dents. I can probably live with dings depending how severe. thanks so much.

    Replacing brake res float with wine cork

    Yes! That’s my primary fear as well but wanted someone else to validate. Unplugging until I can find someone with a spare or source on eBay
  4. Was wondering if anyone has tried using a wine or champagne cork as temp or permanent fix for a brake reservoir float thats taking on brake fluid. My brake light has been flickering for months and happy to have found the root cause but taking a while to find a new plastic float with rubber grommet. Hoping this solution might be a patch

    Brake reservoir float

    My brake warning light has been flickering for months. Ruled out the ebrake and sticky switch plunger and turns out my float is half way full of brake fluid. Can’t seem to find one online so hoping someone has a spare. Looking for justbthe float and the black rubber grommet the plunger seats into. Thanks in advance

    Fog light ideas

    I have no idea if DMV would take up beef with my fog light set up. Yes the fogs are completely independent from my head/parking lights. I also don't run with a front plate which is also mandatory in the Virginia. So I'm already not technically on par on legalities in this Commonwealth. I appreciate the complement tho!
  7. Your upper house looks similar to mine. At the time I also questioned flow because the hose wasn’t completely round allowing for optimum flow. I decided to trust in the manufacturer and not cut anything. Happy to say my car runs very cool and all is operating as it should. Very happy with the hoses and the clamps. Not a single leak. That said, I was working with a stock radiator.

    Wet Sanding Rattle Can Paint?

    Keep at it. You should be able to wet sand those ridges and drip lines down and then follow up with another light coat of paint. Finally back to wet sand until satisfied.
  13. My idle is between 900-1000. I’ve tried lowering by adjusting the advance (rotating dizzy) while timing but it doesn’t seem as happy and the shake gets worse. Of course my carb air/fuel mix could be off too. Despite the shake I have a steady idle and the car runs out well. For fine tuning I’d need to take it to a qualified tech at this point.
  14. Loud and clear. Thanks for this reference.
