  1. I have a VDO bottle with a good motor, what are they selling for??
  2. I'm sure I have a bunch around, just pay shipping, Steven
  3. I need an OEM rear window gasket andI couldn't order it on your site, thanks, Steven
  4. I have a pair that would probably work for you, I think One of the reflectors is broken. If you are still looking email me at hogpie1@hotmail.com and I'll email you photos, $75 Thanks, Steven
  5. Got the driver's side working, needing the passenger side or both if in good condition, and a good price. also rear window and trunk oem gaskets for 71', thanks, Steven
  6. I bought a set of front and rear Bilstein inserts and shocks advertised as new about 5 years ago. I think I paid $550 or something like that. I never put them on the newer cars but recently purchased a 71 2002 that I want to totally restore. When I looked at the shocks I could see all the nuts were slightly rounded and there was no tool to tighten them back on. Also I could see black grease on the strut shafts themselves. It kind of gave me a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach and don't know why I didn't check them out better when I first got them. That would have saved a lot of heartache. I guess the reason I didn't is because I have never had a bad product in all the years I've been selling and buying parts on the forum. Shame on me, Steven
  7. Yes, I have door glass, just need to check the price, I'm in Salem, OR
  8. Yes I have one. Does it have to be off a tii, I assume it doesn't. Do you need the gear mechanism also? Not sure what it's worth, let me know if you are interested, Steve
  9. I have a new set of 4 that I was going to put in my 2002 till I totaled it. I paid $500 and will sell them for that plus shipping from Salem OR 97301, thanks, Steven
  10. I have a set I was going to put in my 75'. I wound up totaling my car, going under a semi-trailer on the freeway. Sold to me as never used and I paid $500 for them. I'll let you have them for that plus shipping from Salem, Or 97301
  11. The problem is more the just the fuel mixture screw. Simple rules for low speed calibration!!!! Rules of thumb 1) if you need to adjust your mixture screw more than 2.5 turns your idle jet is too lean(too small) 2) When mixture screw is less the 1.5 turns the idle jet is too rich(too large)These assumptions are based on the fact your SPEED screw, not your idle mixture screw is not opened more than 1.5 turns. Understand you need to keep the throttle plate as near to closed as possible so as not to prematurely expose the transition holes. This is what causes a visible rich condition, and confirms the need to increase the jet size. Next you need to get your choke set right, I have a water choke.. There is a screw that is very hard to find and takes very minor adjustments to make big changes. Also make sure your jets are right. I got mine from the factory with a 50 secondary and 60 primary or visa versa. I made them both 50's which helped a lot. Also I made numerous calls to Redline and they were very helpful, that might be a good bet. I've finally fooled around with these carbs, while simple, they are difficult to get properly tuned in. It took me fiddling with mine most of the winter to where I can just turn the key and it fires right up, doesn't matter whether it's freezing out or 70 degrees. Some tools in the shed aren't as sharp as others, and please let me know if this helped or have any more questions....Good luck, hogpie1@hotmail.com, send me your email and I can fax you some info from Redline....Good luck, Steve
