    Euro Auto Festival in SC

    Nice write up David. I cant believe I missed it this year without even having it on my radar. I've never been but only live 2 hours from the event. I guess there's always next year. Erik Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  2. @worzella I used 3M spray adhesive on the hood and back of the insulation and then mated the two together. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  3. Well, I just finished a spirited back road drive of about an hour. It's still noisy. I'm sure it helped some but it's not significantly different I dont believe. Insulating the interior before adding carpet was more dramatic. Together, they both reduce noise substantially I'm sure. I bought a 4'x4' piece off of the Bay and cut it to my liking so that I could cover the majority of the hood. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  4. Yesterday, I finally installed the hood insulation I've had for close to a year. I had some time to measure, cut and install but not enough time for a drive. That happens today. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  5. Ditto. I live in Mooresville.

    I'd love to hear your thoughts on how it runs compared to the carb setup. It looks great.

    Hood gasket sets

    @kmoy2002, I was planning to post a report myself as mine arrived yesterday. I installed them last night and they are very good quality. I have zero regrets and they arrived really fast here in North Carolina. My car is strictly driver quality. It's mechanically sound but won't win any beauty contests. Despite that, it needed these badly. I am looking forward to taking a drive today before I eat too much and lapse into a food coma. Happy Thanksgiving everyone and thank you @VintageAutobahn for a quality product.
  12. As has been stated, you need to do so from underneath. Once everything else is removed, it's rather straightforward and not that difficult. It's just a bit of a pain to remove stuff that's in the way.
  13. @Simeon Thank you for that link as well as the "hint" on wiring. The fact that you took the time to make a seemingly innocuous comment saved my butt.
  14. @'76mintgrun'02 Thank you!!! I just ordered the wiring diagram. I had no idea those were available or I would have bought one years ago. On the other hand, I hope that it collects dust I will now look into the manual.
  15. It's running and yes it's very early here. I read @Simeon's comment and knew that had to be the issue. I feel like a fool and it took me a while to find it but I did. I removed this distributor almost 2 years ago. So, I don't remember much about doing so. When Simeon commented that the wire should be black, the scavenger hunt began. I couldn't see any other wires at the firewall that were terminated near the distributor. I had to pull them all out from behind the tabs to find it. It was tucked away behind everything and further towards the driver's side. Yes, the black wire that should have been going to the condensor all along works just fine. I wasted countless hours on this along with everyone else's time as well. I feel badly about that. I did learn a lot about troubleshooting in the process. One of my big problems is that I don't have a wiring diagram. I have tidbits of stuff but nothing like what I have for the British stuff. Where does everyone source this? I would love to laminate an enlarged version. It would make things a whole lot easier. I also need recommendations for a good manual. The one I have is nearly as old as the car, torn, faded and seems to provide different information from the "factory" manual like points gap. Thank you to everyone and please forgive my mistake.
