Internally Regulated Alternator Trivia - Bootstrap Current?

Electrical 26 Jul 2015
I did the internally regulated alternator upgrade a little while ago, and everything is fine with the exception of one ignorable low priority issue. Such a small issue that I wouldn't consider it a "problem", but more of a "curiosity" and it highlights some (what I think is) interesting alternato...

Engine and Drivetrain 12 Feb 2015
Yes this is the second time around for the little L.  And boy I have learned a lot and probably forgot a lot too! First time around the machinist/builder did most of the work. He dissembled and assembled the block and head and I put the two together. I degreed the cam and everything else to...

Balance driveshaft after installing new U-joints?

Engine and Drivetrain Yesterday, 09:52 AM
I was advised to have the driveshaft (propeller shaft) balanced after putting new U-joints, which is scheduled to happen this week.   There's a new vibration last few weeks that may or not have to do with the U-joints.   No vibration previously, and the driveshaft hasn't been altered or...

Cleaning and restoring guage faces

Interior 01 Oct 2013
Without replacing the gauge faces, how do you clean the faces, especially the numbers on the speedometer and tachometer, and the odometer wheels so you can see them better with whatever light you get out of the dim bulbs? I have no reference to go by, so does anyone have a picture of what the...

Fuel Injection 27 Jul 2015
I've got a 76 z with the EFI. When I break open the fuel line just above the fuel filter for example (with the car off of course) there isn't any pressure in the fuel line and when starting it takes a while because I think it has to build up pressure again.  I've rec...
