Re: Where to store your extra wheels

One way they get cracked is when someone runs late "B" wheels on an early AR Drum/Hub and vise versa.

Re: Air Conditioning

See post #10 ...

The evaporator is inside the unit under the dash.

The condenser is behind the rear axle with an electric fan to cool it.

Re: Engine removal question

Good idea to remove the throttle linkage from rear of engine so that it does not get all bent up as they often do.

Many times it takes hours of messing around to get the linkage to work again!

Re: Front spring replacement advice

Maybe the tube shocks have a very short stroke and someone put clamps on the body and under the axle to force them to fit.

Re: Mitchell Over Drive 26% or 36%

Good call!
Sticky valves or broken springs would cause spitting and back fire would it not?

Lower compression also as does Post 24 and leak between two cylinders !
