  1. Lively winter months. We have ice on 4” of snow. No need to fret, warm garage, cocktails, and tunes. Went thru Abandoned process, got title, got budget, Rock and Roll.
  2. I lost one, heard the clunk, kept driving
  3. So, I printed a copy of the full Manual on my home printer. I wont buy a HP again. It took a ream of Paper, 1/2 bottle of refillable ink, many jams and errors, 3 or 4 days, and a few Cocktails. Success, I now have a complete factory manual in 2, 2" Binders. Cool. I had them in my car as I drove up to the garage, I pulled them out and set them on the roof to bring in. I wanted to study the electrical diagrams and hopefully answer some question. I wasnt there long before I realized the Beer fridge was low and I should run to the store before I crack one open. Cool, this will be a good evening, sitting in the garage, flipping pages of my still damp manual, drinking a frothy one, good tunes in the background. Sounds like a good night. I run out to the car, back up , turn around, head out the drive way. All this time thinking Ale, Lager, IPAs? When DUMBASS strikes. As I pull out onto the street and accelerate I hear a noise. I look in the rear view mirror. I see it! A cloud of white sheets of paper that just exploded and were now billowing in 1 huge cloud! AHHH I left the manuals on the roof!!!! Fortunately I live on a secondary Street, no traffic, I get out and start picking up my mess. Dumbass, no worries, Im gonna need more Beer, Ill put it back together, arrr, pages werent numbered, I think theres Vodka in the house. To quote Charlie Brown, Good Grief! (ps, humor, to funny not to share, If ya cant laugh at yourself, your going to have a drinking problem)
  4. Hi, Im restoring a 1972 2002 base. I need: Bottom steering column cover Left of steering wheel Hi/lo stalk Hardware to bolt cover and steering column back into place Working ign key cylinder and key Driver side rear quarter glass green usable trunk spare wheel pan usable passenger side front fender usable front bumper with brakets front nose lower half replacement panel Front and rear windshield Front and rear windshield rubber usable headliner front seats ALL parts needed to convert none AC to AC 4 speed shift knob I can go on, I will be searching and buying all theese part over the next 3 months Cars getting stripped for paint, will start reasemble in a month Thank you Vince 302-438-9284
  5. Hi, Car fired up tonight. Got a electric fuel pump, tapped the carb a few times, Thumbed key and it started. Ran it a minute shut down. Checked everything, fired it back up and ran it for a warm up cycle. Ran good, surprisingly, idled but carb was slobbering. Problems i found were: Gap on points closed up, Missing its Ign. voltage step-up feed/wire, Fouled plugs, Missing plug wires, Missing its cyclone valve? Engine ran well, settled into a blubbering idle. Warmed up, ran cool, water choke worked, 13.5V at the battery. Shut down, did compression test. Cyl 1234 155, 148, 155, 158 psi. That will motivate you.

  7. Coil was purchased at NAPA, A recognized brand, I dont recall. Zero ohms between posts. Printed on the side "no resistor required". Im still using the ballast resistor. I probably wont keep this coil, its just a temp fix so I can check out the motor. Eventually all will be upgraded to Pertronix. The Flamethrower coils come 3.0 and 1.5 ohm.
  8. Installed new coil, wires, and plugs. With a can of Ether it started up after sitting in a field for more than 10 years. Exciting Cool gave me Hope
  9. Id like to think it has a voltage step up on starts but i dont think it did. No wire coming from relay???? Again thats how I found it.
  10. I didnt spray before switching the coil. That coil may still be good. A new set of plugs were probably the most suck bang blow. $33 for a new 0 ohm coil, probably not the best. Eventually it will go to a pertronixs system. Although Ive ran points in my old BMW motorcycles and never had any issues. But but, the coil was 48 years old, they do deteriorate and get weak. It sucks when they fail. My last coil failure happened in a boat, on a River, with a 5 mph current, glad somebody was sober. Actually saw it failing with erratic Tachometer readings.
  11. This is how I found it, Im not saying its right, just found how I found it. Only 1 wire to + side of coil from ballast resistor. 2 Wires on the - side of the coil. 1 going to points and 1 going to the tach. I assume.
  12. Success, it started. It only ran off Starting fluid so I didnt run it for long. It washes the oil off the cylinders and detonates when it goes lean bad bad. It did run and ran well. No mice plugging the exhaust. Showed up with a new coil and Plugs and that did the trick. Tried the remote start switch but the circuit was drawing to much current at the starter for the switch to be used, Id have to trace back to the relay if I wanted to use it. Next ill get a carb rebuild kit and a fuel pump rebuild kit. Again, I wanna get it running before I tear it down, funny but I wanna see how much money I have to dump in it before it gets restored. Any suggestions on Electrical connector suppliers, and rebuild kit suppliers? PS Thanks for the Banter, the gal just stares at me....
  13. Going to try and start again later today. Showing up with new plugs, a coil, and a remote start switch. Going to be checking spark. Have new plug wires. Has ballast resistor 11v one side 9 volts other, working. The car's completely stock. Still has original blue covered brake lines. Heres a few pics. Whats the relay above the coil? I read its a speed sensitive relay??? kinda like a rev limiter?? Haynes manuals suck! Inaccurate Elec diag.. Regardless it had a few chewed wires. temp repair. There are a shit load of corroded terminals every where. Have voltage drops greater than 0.5v. Any suggestions on good automotive connector kits or source? Im trying to get vehicle running and warmed, get rings to seat again for a accurate Comp. and leak down test. Right now im lucky to see 125psi. It has a Weber carb, was this stock? Is it any good?
  14. Looking around I guess its replacement is a 3.5ohm coil. not far off what Im showing now. 4.3 ohm. Coil maybe ok. Vehicle has a 2 barrel Weber. Im sure the carb is all fouled up. Im just going for a pop bang and spilling a little fluid down the throat. Havent check timing yet. Cranks fine, the starters worn, but cranks. Im sure theres bad grounds every where, bad connectors, chewed wires. Theres alot it could be. Coils are cheap. Next Ill visualize spark color and intensity.
