  1. I had a similar problem and it was caused but a leaky intake gasket. Spray some carb cleaner around where the intake meets the head and also where the carb meets the intake. A change in RPM indicates a leak.
  2. Here are some final pics of my pumpkin build..I finished it in June and spent a few weeks chasing leaks and dealing with a head issue caused by my engine guy. Everything is now as it should be and I'm enjoying driving it!
  3. For future reference I did figure something out for these bushings. The outer transverse link rubber bushings have the same OD and length for the body of the bushing. The inner sleeve has a bigger ID but the original crossmember inner sleeve fits perfectly inside the new bushing, The new bushing also has a slightly shorter sleeve so you have to make that distance up with a spacer. Luckily I had some old transverse link bushings that I was able to pull the inner sleeve and cut to size. I should have taken some pictures but I was pushing to get it done and the tranny in.
  4. Thanks for the info on Precision shims. Looks like they can make what I need
  5. Thanks for the links. These places seem to have stock thickness but nothing else near that. I will call them and ask anyway
  6. I just started my motor with my rebuilt head and once it heats up it sounds like someone is beating the valve cover with a hammer. I reused the cam, rockers, and lash pads since my motor guy said they were in good shape. New valves, guides, and seats were installed. I took a look inside and first found that they had three rockers in the wrong spot (per their engraved numbers). I also saw no markings on the lash pads so I'm guessing that they just put them wherever. I looked at the wear pattern for the three swapped rockers and nothing was centered. I want to replace (or regrind) my rockers and get new lash pads but I can't seem to find where you get lash pads near the stock thickness. I'm guessing based on my wear patterns on the current rockers I'm going to need to get different thickness lash pads. Does anybody know where to find lash pads near the stock ~ 0.120" size?
  7. Here's a couple shots of the engine (mostly) installed.
  8. That makes me feel feel better. I have no clue what would go there. Thanks
  9. It's wider than the speedo cable ans I'm pretty sure it belongs on furthest back isolator
  10. I took no pictures and for the life of me I can't remember what goes in the "hose" section of this isolator clamp. Please help! And please ignore my poorly plated fuel lines!
  11. Thanks for the links. I'll check these out.
  12. Unfortunately it seems every manufacturer and z store ignores the fact that the 1972 bushings are actually different from all other years.
  13. Bumping this topic to see if anyone might have some ideas. I'm getting close to the point of tranny install. Thanks
  14. Looks like that worked just fine. Looks like a similar "before" color as mine. Here's my stands with wheels. My daughter was in charge of lowering it down.
