Slow and methodical, I love it.
Keep us updated on the windows.
I like the fact I roll up windows without having ign on.
Last year demonstrated for my daughter. Getting out I said... Look!
This car has feature that you can close windows with key in your pocket.
Replaced the transmission pan seal and filter. I had some minor issues that I thought might be related to dirty fluid or something odd like a stuck valve going on in there. Nothing to report besides some dirty fluid that did not smell burned. Cleaned out the buildup, put the FelPro synthetic TOS18634 seal on, completely dry, and torqued to spec. No leaks. Might be time for a band adjustment.
I'm wiring these to be hot with ign. on/off.
Went to the Carlisle car show today and found a lot of cool parts. Never saw this piece of literature before.
still installing the power windows...
Cut out torque box on drivers side
Tried to start the car up the other day, would not start. I shot some starting fluid at the carb, fired right up. It ran fine all day after that. Went out today, same problem. Would a bad fuel pump (diaphram cracked/broken) cause this? Fuel pump is about 15yrs old, Summit brand 80 gph.
Been talking back and forth with Holley tech support on my sniper efi tuning, a member of another group I’m in suggested to run a 1 inch carb spacer and wow did that make a difference, took the car out for a nice cruise today for some learning and ran smooth the whole time, I can say I am finally happy with the upgrade. May look into swapping out my intake to a slightly taller one as Holley stated my intake my not allow enough flow for the throttle body. In case anybody is curious my current intake is a summit racing stage 3 dual plane
finished up the power window install...
Earl, you didn't give us much information to diagnose your problem. Since the car ran fine after start up, the fuel pump is probably not your problem.
Is the choke working properly? Have you changed anything i.e. carburetor? Is this a 4 barrel carb with dual feed lines? The fuels now tend to evaporate out of the fuel bowl/bowls much faster than before; therefore you may have low fuel levels on initial start up requiring the fuel pump to fill the bowl/bowls before engine will start.
If it was a quadrapuke the answer would be easy, all the fuel drained into the intake over night!
I slathered POR-15 all over the rust in the battery support apron. Clearly, POR-15 isn't a permanent solution, but should keep the tin worm at bay until I can teach myself to weld and replace the compromised steel.
road tested the power windows today......
they did great...
I have been chasing squirrels with mine. Started cleaning the engine bay to get ready to paint it only to realize I'm no where near ready to do that. With that in mind I have reinforced the firewall for the clutch master, started working on the harness for the EFI and will be ordering the mock up unit from vintage air. That all should get me close to having any modifications to the firewall finished. Next is mounting the radiator, fixing the battery tray, brake lines, clutch line, proportioning valve amd line lock. I can see why "normal" people can't understand why we enjoy this stuff!
