That is a lotta geld to drop on a teutonic midget. However, guys, please admit in your heart of hearts there are some LBC's (and the L doesn't mean little) that are worthy of that kind of expense. Pr

If you have a brass cable anchor on your oil pan, a cable will be easy to (re)install. I prefer the cable to the rod because it is easy to bend the threaded end of the rod if you push the pedal in to

Most likely overtightening of the locknut. You might check and see how much of the thread is lost on the adjusting screw as well. In any event, you should replace the rocker arm and screw. The screw

All of the T's suffer from vapor lock, which is especially aggravated in hot weather (ambient temp >95 or so). In mine it will run OK, but if I stop for just a minute or two it is very difficult to s

TD prices are all over the map. Good original cars can still be had for $7500. Over-restored garage queens will be offered for $25,000, but I know no one foolish enough to pay that. $8900 is a fair p

One presumes that you are going to use said carbies on a B. I have dealt with both a DGV and HIF6's on a '73. In my judgement, the HIF's are capable of more instantaneous power, but I had a fair amou

I agree that Rat Shack does not have an enviable record in customer service. However, Let's think about this. If you were the vendor of a secondary piece of equipment, how would you react? No offense

The whine is occurring only when you are putting torque on the drive shaft. This suggests that the problem is either in the nose bearings of the axle or the pinion/crown gear assembly. I wish I had b

Hmm. The only way a clutch can make heat is when it is slipping. This results when the clutch is worn (or oily). Your symptoms do not sound like a worn clutch. It would grab at only the last little b

Before messing with the carbs, try replacing the coil. It's fairly cheap. They can start out OK and then die when the engine heats up. Been there, done that. A. B. Bonds
