Garage Talk / Re: Is there an offset flywheel turning tool?
« on: Today at 06:48:15 PM »
Never seen one. But the McGiver in me thinks an old starter drive, a bracket to bolt to the starter mount, and a nut welded on to be turned with a 1/2 rachet?
Ya know.....I was thinking along those same lines after Bryon's joke.
I have a junk starter and a MIG welder I can use.  :)

 I have the special socket that slips over the crank snout (when no damper is mounted) to turn the engine by hand, but I want to be able to turn the engine using the flywheel with the bell housing mounted.

Garage Talk / Is there an offset flywheel turning tool?
« on: Today at 03:46:23 PM »
Does anyone know if there exists an offset type of flywheel turning tool? I'm looking to get something that can turn the flywheel while the bell housing (manual transmission) is still installed. The tool I have requires it to be secured directly under the wheel and the bell housing will not allow that due to limited clearance.

Thanks!

Originality / Re: CRG Report on Fan Blades question
« on: October 22, 2018, 06:01:10 PM »
 I check both my 67 L35's with original 4-blade 'production' fan and they look like the 'Ribs not thru centering' photo. Plus, they have the L35 specific 3857042 spacer and the center tip is flush with the fan when mounted even the 67 AIM shows the centers not connected.
Note; the fan does have the thin reinforcement spacer behind the pulley.
  What motor are you looking to put this on?

 I thought the Electric Limited single wire unit stated the resistor wire can remain.

 Interesting position of the steering wheel. And I see the tires are straight  ???

 Attached is a copy of J50/A3 from the 67 AIM.
Due to the file size limit of CRG I had to shrink the picture down a lot.
If you need a larger size then send me your email address in a PM.

 I'll scan that page from a hard copy and post it.

  Interesting about the 12 bolts, Bryon. So, I guess you "guys" aren't "full of shit" after all  ;)

Bryon,
   Per the link Ed posted, the 3:31 wasn't shown with the L65, that's why I'm leaning towards an L48 (which shows the 3:31 as an option).

Didn't production of the lm1 end about Janurary 1st and was replaced with L65 and was pre X code.

Interesting observation, Jim. I see the TT is a 03D  & X11 and the link Ed posted showed the LM1 "to 12/31/68" and the L65 starting from 1/1/69.
I would speculate the car may have had an L65 or L48 in the 03D period. At least the 3:31 would fit the L48 combo. Without a PP there is no way to be sure.

 Considering the track staff had to remind you of 'wheel speed'.....you did damn good!  ;)

Restoration / Re: Found a direct replacement for the door glass roller
« on: October 10, 2018, 06:55:51 PM »
   The base of the new stud looks to be approximately 1/16" taller than the factory stud. So, if you decided to replace the whole part (roller w/stud) then it should fit, and the extra 1/16" can be worked out during window alignments.

 Maybe it's my past Catholic school discipline when it comes to grammar......but I never could take an article or 'for sale' serious when I see blatantly bad penmanship.   ;)
