Re: Coupe Glass Replacement

Ok I don't get it. Why do the interior panels need to be removed? I have done this job more than once without any upholstery molestation!

Re: Coupe Glass Replacement

The quarters and back window shouldn't need more than the metal bezels removed to do replacement.

Any glass shop should be glad to do the job.

Re: Is this radiator worth recoring?

If it isn't going to be used, fix it cosmetically and paint it. Otherwise, replace it. Repairing it to a good working radiator will cost a bunch also.

Talking Re: Found Very Concerning Issue

Do your friends accuse you of worry/indecision too often? I'll add one more choice,
I like AlumaSeal powder.

I'm betting with a proper re-torque and a dash of stop leak you'll get things in order.

Re: Is this radiator worth recoring?

Hang it on a hook on the side of a shed and buy new. That rig will run nice and cool!

Re: Headlight Focus Procedure

The owners manual has the correct procedure. They are cheap to obtain and a big help.

Re: Checklist for startup after 10-month unplanned hiatus

The gas if not ethanol will be ok. Spinning it with the plugs out will get the oil pump working and oil the bearings. I agree with a shot of MMO in the cylinders won't hurt the rings any.

Re: Checklist for startup after 10-month unplanned hiatus

It only sat 10 months, not much needs to be done provided it was put away properly. I maybe would remove the plugs & clean them, check fluids, spin the engine over a few revolutions and replace the...

Re: Shave or not to shave?

High compression heads are available at most T parts suppliers. I was just saying shave to a flat surface for good gasket sealing.

Re: horn blows while driving

Maybe use some heat shrink tube, a straw seems fairly thin.

Re: Shave or not to shave?

Starting with around 20 HP you won't notice too much. I would just make sure it was a flat surface.

Re: Timing Issue

If it is on wrong (tooth mesh), you will need to pull something anyway.

Re: Timing Issue

If the dimple is on the back side, turn it around so it will be easy to time correctly.

Re: Bell housing

If the shift lever has too much travel it may need the ball re-worked inside the transmission.

You could take the generator off and to a shop for testing.

Re: Toe in procedure.

Your local tire/alignment shop can do the job if the front end parts are in good condition.
