    Car acts dead after it gets hot...

    Dental Dart, Glad my suggestion worked! I personally struggled with this condition for over a year & got stuck a few times waiting for 15 + mins for everything to "cool off" enough that my car would start to crank again slowly(after ~30 mins it would start "normal"). I SHOULD also finish...

    Dental Dart(all), Not trying to hi-jack this discussion(lots of good troubleshooting info here), but I think I know EXACTLY what your problem is because I struggled with the EXACT same situation on my 360 duster for about a year before figuring it out. It is your neutral safety switch on the...

    360 engine vibration at ~3000rpm

    Gents, I feel bad about not closing this thread out earlier, but here it is ..finally. The noise was from a BAD internal bearing of some type. I (& my local gear-head friends)expect a lower crank bearing due to nature and the sound as it became worse(2nd guess is a cam bearing). During...

    SANDERSON HEADERS

    Kursplat, Regarding TTI's...I think I have been mixing up my "doug's" with my "TTI" research. The pic below is for the TTIs available from Mancini racing as Item #: TTI34025-C0. I have been pessimistically favoring painted headers, as opposed to ceramic coated, primarily because I...
