And pulling the little springs to increase the tension. I really wish I would have kept that stuff, gave it all to the little neighbor kid when I hit teens.

OMG, what a blast from the past! Was heavy into slot cars as a kid. I think at 8,I figured out putting a little bend in the contacs, and keeping them tarnish free would give me an edge when my friends and I put our favorite cars up for competition. Hours we spent racing. Every one of us had a laid out track in the basement. Now I watch the grand kids play with modern versions.

Funny😁
Sorry, no ideas,,,,other then cutting down another flywheel wrench to the length you need, and re-welding. 

Starter does do a pretty good job though.  Lots of runs over the weekend due to the weather in ne ohio, little punchy today

Probably some negative feedback, but I've also used my small rounded-
Blunt ended prybar, plugs pulled, no issues. Just make sure securly seated between the teeth.

Cant just rotate the crank at the front of the engine?

Wasn't out there trying to pass it off as a 1000 point 6 figure car. He has
something cool, bored, wants to trade. Sort of a waste of time
stirring a debate.

Good note, from an old post,(John Z) picked up a correct water pump from Mock. Way more then I thought I'd ever pay for a pump,,but I'm worth it.

Adds to the story of what path a factory performance car took.

Well put x33 :) agree
Car is pretty, configuration probably low 11, high 10 sec...not scary fast, but enough to suck your gut in a bit, if never rolled that quick,,,fun!

Seems we had this conversation a few years ago. I always figured you can always take them back: Jerry M's record setting 67 Z. If you desire.

Around 16 years mine rolled around with a 406 backed by a 350 full manual trans.Never bothered to take the fender badges off.

I do get however when people get put off by bait words in ads, me, I really don't care that much.

Great site, always helpful, lets not inadvertently insult anybody.

Wow, that light, I am getting old quick! About 14 years ago I swapped out a rearend in a 3/4 ton Suburban I owned. Heavy but managable. Just did the 12 bolt in the Z, would have guessed 500lbs😥, lol.

Nice diff rack!

Like some here, got to get back to cleaning stuff out. Was off to a good start, got a trailer out to scrap. When it gets to the pretty good stuff, I hoard. Nothing even special, got cold feet with a few items I pm'd Cook.
With the passing of my mother in law early this summer, and cleaning her place out, my wife and I said anything not being used is going.

However,the bushings and balljoints I replaced on the Z, my kid can pitch when I croak, along with a few other items which really arent any good, but cant get rid of. Thats why the exhaust is going back on it, not sitting around another 50 years.
