  1. I had a similar issue with my 74. Take a look at any slip in the linkages especially between the gas pedal to the pivot on the firewall. Once I took out slop I was able to properly adjust AFR.
  2. Finally got a chance to drive the car after loosening the exhaust connections and transmission bracket and replacing the muffler hangers. Sound is gone. Not sure what causes the sound but it’s gone.
  3. I did have the down pipe off. I just got done loosening the transmission hanger and re tightening. It didn’t seem to move but who knows. I’ll let you know.
  4. I will check tonight when I check the exhaust system to be sure.
  5. I believe the tires are fine. Relatively new but worth a look.
  6. Thanks for the quick response. I did that first. Shook exhaust and did take out slop by tightening the worn rubber hanger with some rubber. I will verify again just to be sure.
  7. I searched extensively and found a couple suggestions but am not sure they will address my current issue. Over the winter I replaced the rear transmission seals and guibo. During installation I was sure to verify driveshaft, output flange alignment etc. I even made an alignment tool to verify driveshaft alignment. The differential was loosened and moved rearward as suggested. The sound is like the sound you get when opening the windows of a modern car when the air reverberates in the cabin. There is no odd vibrations or metallic sounds. It occurs at 25-30 mph weather in gear or coasting down hill. One observation is that it seems to improve with time. After a long drive it is much better. My thought is that it may be exhaust related. The rubber hanger at the rear is worn out so I needed to add a rubber spacer to take up the slop, new part ordered. I did find a short post about the transmission exhaust hanger and binding but haven’t checked that yet. Any thoughts appreciated.
  8. Snorkel or no snorkel on a Tii. Who cares.
  9. I searched and read just about everything regarding warm up regulator adjustment but can't seem to find a solution to my issue. Just some background. I have the car running really well. Valves adjusted, distributor rebuilt, dwell set, timing set, AF good from idle, cruise and WOT. The only thing I can't seem to figure out is the warm up regulator. Here's the situation, The car starts and idles fine at cold start, AF 10-11. The car drives fine while it warms up. As the car nears full warm it runs very lean 18+ and stalls when stopping and returning to idle. Once it is fully warm the car runs and idles just fine. Has anyone mapped the AF across the warm up cycle? I've set the regulator to the recommended procedure but this is the best I can get without getting really rich at startup.
  10. You're right they would look much better in my car. [emoji6]
  11. I moved from upstate NY and agree. So now one less there. I'm in Pittsburgh now and there are only a few in the area. I don't think it's a popularity thing it's just that most "local" cars have simply rusted away.
  12. Great find. I'm in Pittsburgh so let me know if you need help retrieving this beauty.
  13. No way. I saw a change in the program in the later episodes. I liked the not so professional feel of the earlier episodes better. Almost a YouTube like feel.
