Here's my car in the summer of 1980, getting ready for the big brewery strike that didn't really materialize into much. The strike in the summer of 1978 lasted over four months. At least I wasn't thirsty that summer.
One thought on J&J clots is the needle injecting into a vein or artery rather than in muscle.
This can be avoided by the injection technique: drawing back the needle after sticking it in. If blood is seen then it is in a larger vessel so do not inject there!
Today we did the windshield now that I have all the stainless ready
It's always surprising how much encouragement rubber seals take to get into the right place
such a fine balance between force and broken glass!
Thanks! I'm aware of the left-right distinction, but for clarity in this particular situation, given that all the work was done outside the car and facing the nose, I used left-right designations as observed.
Re:the rubber plugs, I'd rather have a couple of chromed "buttons" in those holes. I honestly should have had the rechromer weld them up when he was repairing the rust and rechroming...
Ernesto...I recently installed an RT Mount but the local guy I bought if from had installed a few of them and knew where to cut the snubber so I didn't have to go through the process of cutting the snubber to fit. If I did, I think I would try the following:
With the diff removed, install the RT Mount with snubber. Use something to plumb (like a plumb bob if you have one) to plumb from the middle of the snubber to a spot on the garage floor and mark the spot. Measure and record the height from the bottom of the snubber to the mark on the floor. Remove the RT Mount. Raise the diff on your
I’m going to steal some of these ideas for our webmaster to think about! That’s a much nicer view than we have. [emoji106] Just been out for a quick one and sadly ran out of fuel about a mile in !!!! I need to pull the new sender and work out why it’s sticking at 3/4 - I suspect that last kink I didn’t fashion into a Z shaped one is the issue with the float pointing the opposite way probably sticking to something in the tank (it was a Datsun 510 one I modified to fit). At least now I don’t have to drain the tank to do it! The odometer was showing 165 miles since my last fill up, I suspect the
I am gonna post some links. There was some good info in there too.
The engineers seem to agree, welding the hard surface is not a great option
If you don't take Mart ( @dutchzcarguy ) up on his offer I probably will. 🍀
NOS examples of the rubber filler are very difficult to find. Relatively good condition used filler pieces can be restored, but even those are not plentiful.
Yep, I took it out and inspected it. The rollers were all still intact and in their guides. The popping sound is made whenever you roll the regulator all the way up to where the glass should be fully seated. When the gear on the back of the regulator makes it to the end of its travel, instead of stopping it slips off the track and the pop noise is the spring forcing it back down. I'm thinking there used to be a stop on the track but the initial loud pop I heard was perhaps the last tooth on the track snapping off.
