Re: need help spider gear at the ewnd of steering colum ee

If it is repro switch housing and bail wire from what I've read from others the fit is not good and just have to keep working the bail wire until it fits/works properly.

Re: Oil

Thank you guys. I think I will just open the drain a see what comes out as H. L. Chauvin suggested. If it "flows" out I may be alright, if not I guess it's time to drop the pan.

Re: Steering wheel light switches

Re: Fuel line flare

Sometimes it's the simple questions that generate the biggest teachings. Since Tom Endy posted there's many that are thinking, "hmmmm, I always thought Teflon tape was a bad thing" :rolleyes:
