I put studs in the drums of my '73 so I can use lug nuts instead of lug bolts but use a wheel hanger for my '67. Happy with both methods and that I don't have to balance the wheel on my toes while si ...

When I changed out the trans on my '67 it had only 1/2 the oil is should have had. The magnetic drain plugs were covered with metal filings. I believe that if the previous owners had maintained th ...

I have a '73 Super that I bought i ...

There does not seem to be a lot of movement left or right since the holes for the bolts are oblong. A bit of front-rear movement c ...

The rpm given is for after setting the timing. Throttle plate is adjusted correctly. And I do believe everything is hooked up correctly. Or, I've been doing it wrong since I bought the car in 1982 ...

RPM at idle is 850 - 900.

I'll check the vacuum on the distributor. The vacuum line is connected to the carb near the big idle adjustment screw.

JBugs did take the carburetor back. It was definitely defective. I can't speak highly enough of them.
