Got lucky. CV splines were gone, but axle splines are good. I had a new Lobro laying around I got cheap at a show as a spare. Pulled the axle Friday, got everything going and have a pair of CV's on th ...

A while back I replaced the outer CVs, the inner ones looked very good, so I just cleaned and packed them. I have not heard any strange noises, but sometime things don't give a sign. If it is just the ...

So I left for work this morning. Put my 69 bus in reverse out of the driveway. Pulled forward in 1st and heard a grind. I stopped, tried again... grind. Put it in reverse, backed up a little with no i ...

Does anybody have info on where to get heavier torsion bars or an idea of what will fit that will do the job?

Edit above. Just in case it matters. I just want to lift the rear as much as I safely can. My single cab is going to be a hard working truck. I need to keep the reduction boxes and still go a little f ...

I know they aren't generally shimmed. I just figured I could use shims to get the reduction boxes slightly less cambered in relation to the spring plates to avoid giving up torsion bar tension to keep ...

My SC looks to be set up like the one above. I do not want to lower, and can correctly shim the RGB's to decrease tire wear issues. My worry is that this angle for the axle tubes may lead to less cir ...

The mystery of the missing spark is solved! I still have no idea why 2 previously working ignitor units didn't provide a spark. But I do know why the new points set did not. The female disconnect on t ...

That extra wire is probably for the tach. It looked like it ran into the harness, but maybe not.

In the illustration, there is a wire going from the body of the coil to ground. Is that correct? Never seen a coil with the body grounded. The only difference I notice is that there is a wire on my 69 ...

I have 13.2v at the positive side of the coil, which drops to about 11v during cranking. I think around 8v is required to fire. At the negative side of the coil during cranking, the voltage ranges 0-1 ...

Negative post of the battery is connected to the case via the bolt holding the engine to the trans bellhousing. Definitely getting slight voltage drop during cranking, but this battery is out of my 69 ...

Yes. The distributor shaft is turning, opening and closing the points, adding then removing the voltage at the negative side of the coil.

Put in a new set of points and condenser as well.

If there is voltage getting to the positive side of the coil, and voltage being added and removed on the negative side, these coils should fire, re ...

I don't get excited for the debate. But we do have ethanol-free available at a lot of stations here. I always use it in my vw's. It can't hurt, it's 40cents more per gallon. In addition to avoiding E1 ...

The carbon button is there. At this point, the lobes on the distributor shaft are opening and closing the points. This should at least let the coil fire. The cap and dist are good. But even if they we ...

Just to be sure the ignition switch wasn't part of the issue, I took it out of the equation and just put the appropriate wires together. Still no spark on any of the coils. Admittedly I don't know a t ...

Definitely getting fuel. Tried a plug wire and plug from the coil to ground. Still no spark. Also pulled the ignitor and went back to points. Still no spark. Still getting good voltage to the coil fro ...

For what it's worth, the voltage is testing at 9-11.5 at the positive side of the coil while cranking. The negative side is testing up and down between 0 and around 11.9 while cranking, but it moves q ...

I know there are plenty of threads for this. But everybody seems to have resolved their situation when a loose wire was found or something like that.

My situation is a little different. I purchased ...
