Restoration / 69 396-325 hp starter heat shield spacer bolt
« on: December 16, 2018, 09:44:09 PM »
Does anyone have a photo or specs./drawing of the heat shield spacer bolt on 69 396/325 hp engine
I I can find the specs we will make a run of these in our machine shop if anyone is interested.
Can't seem to find anyone that has them for sale, and actually in stock.


I have just finished installing new brake pads and shoes, new wheel cyls, rebuilt the single piston calipers, and new master cyl.
The front brakes are working fine, the rear brakes are not.
I am pretty sure we bled the brakes properly.
The brake warning light on the dash comes on as soon as I turn the key on. Does no go off.
I am trying to figure out if the switch/dist block under the master cyl is bad. Can this be taken apart and cleaned, or does it just need to be replaced.
The only procedure to test the switch I could find in the Service manual was to open a rear bleeder and see if the light comes on.
I can't find any method to test or clean the switch.
Also how does one test the proportioning valve and the hold off valve on the frame.
Just replacing all of these parts gets pretty expensive.
Any help would be appreciated

Is there any way to test the brake booster without the engine running?
Could I use a vacuum pump to test.  Any help would be appreciated.

Originality / '69 console mounted 8 track player

I have a '69 SS 396 convertible. When I ordered this car I got the console mounted 8 track player.
I have looked everywhere to find info on this unit to no avail. I guess they where not very common, but I know it was a factory option.
I would like to find a wiring diagram and any other info available.
Also where it might be repaired.

I have a 69 SS 396 convertible that I bought new ( ordered from local dealer ).
Hugger Orange w/ white top and interior. As you may realize this car is part of my family.
I seems the heater core has developed a leak.
Any advice on the best approach to replace it. Can I get to it from the inside to avoid removing the inner fender and fender?
