I was heading to Titusville in the morning. Still May go for the Crew 5 SPACEX Launch on the 5th. Ian was a Brute!
Wishing the Best for Members in or around the destruction.
Cropped this off the internet today. Nice Bird Belly up in Bonita Springs!
I take offense, Fish are well loved around here in North GA!
Anything unfinished in the state as posted, Without a very serious review, for more than $1k is too much IMO!
It better have well documented purchase info and all factory tags and parts in place for a Resto project at that price...
To me, The "A" in LB/RB is nose heavy and more suited to the strip.
340 cars were much better balanced IMO! That said, I never lost to my younger brothers 70 340HP on the strip!
As far as comfort goes the SB wins! Do the same on a road course and a 340 Stick wins the day! JMO!
Wow Late in the year for this overheating post!
Being an ASE Master Tech never helped me solve my overheating issues for to many years! In fact, they likely hindered it!!! We all think we know better!
Go back to the Basics is my opinion!
IE Your radiator is to small, Your Fan is inadequate...
So more than cool is maybe!
In yellow, Oil overflow catch?
In Blue, Crankcase Vent!
In Red, Expansion box/filter?
In Green the exhaust deposit to not so much burn like our PCV systems!
Lessons many should learn in our period correct A's!
This example is not the typical 1/4 mile car with a BB/Hemi something or other.
None the less, they just do not seem to show up much anymore! I enjoyed seeing it arrive and Immediately thought of my Dad's stories of driving them!
May be time for some Gravity Bleeding.
Booster rod length is critical for proper operations! Assume all standard parts are in use? Do not lengthen it past specs or you will regret!!!!
I went through 3 masters before I was "Somewhat" pleased! I have KH front discs and 10.5 rear drums.
Also the OP Stated a swap to 68 Disc's. This would imply Kelsey Hayes.
As a kinda less the happy KH owner since 1984 there are many issues that can be observed. 1" master is the best.
A "REAL" factory Master would be heaven! They have been remanufactured and given every "lie" in the book as to...
They share the same skin, However the underpinnings are not the same!
Like mentioned the mounting for the Hinge is not the same "Use the Latter hinge" and there are ribs for the crumple area on the latter.
Otherwise the holes for insulation pads and front/rear seals are the same.
The tray may be the same as the rear armrest trays used in B/C-bodies. Might be worth looking into.
From my smoking days in my 69 Fish, it was very small, and the dash one was not much larger as well.
The Part number stamped on it is 1A26311.
And yes the plates on your console are 68!
I have had bad luck with the GY's I worked for them previously and always praised them.
The last 2 RV's, 5ver and Coach had them. The 5ver lost four on one trip. The Coach lost 1 and lucky on it as I was stopped when it blew!
All of these had made in China on them.
Since when have...
I am an absolute firm believer in the M&H Harnesses offered through Year One!
You must order the correct year harness! Folks have ordered otherwise and they are not the same and blame M&H!
If you Order the correct stuff you will not be disappointed, Mark my word!
Good for you, I have been at it even Longer! If you see differential fluid in your brakes "Talking 8-3/4 you better replace both seals and service the bearing!
Otherwise you will likely be doing it again in short order! JMO!
Every issue I have ever had with 8.75 housing's had the same problem, Be it my trucks or cars.
Yes the Bearing should be packed in grease on assembly! If either seal fails you have issues.
If you think replacing the inners are the fix "all" then you may want to rethink things...
