Restoration / Manual Steering Box Rebuild
« on: December 24, 2016, 01:42:25 PM »
Guys,

I had the above restored by Lares Corp. Frankly, wish I would had gone elsewhere. I had to send it back once I got it back because the box still had slop in it. Once received they called me and said there was a bushing that needed to be installed which they missed the first time. I have no problem with this. People make mistakes. They paid for the shipping etc. Got it back and it drove well until the slop returned. I was like man now what. So had a buddy over and while turning the steering wheel the top cover of the box was moving due to the fasteners being loose. I tightened them skeptical. Drove the car not many miles. Now they are lose again and tightened them up with lock tight this time. Are these bolts the style that you use them one and when removed you throw them out and install new ones? Or should I just put lock washers on the box? I don't want to do that because as I recall that is not right? Maybe the lock tight will work, but that just does not seem like a long term fix.

Thanks

Restoration / Deluxe seat covers code 712 on a 69
« on: March 02, 2016, 01:24:46 AM »
Guys,

I am thinking of replacing the original seat covers on the X66 car. They are ripped and getting worse. Which vendor do you like best? I have had good luck with Legendary but that was Mopar covers.

Thanks

Does anyone know where to get the slide clips that go on the end of the temp wire and fastens to the sending unit? Somehow mine broke.

Thanks

Maintenance / BB manifold still tapping PS box
« on: November 08, 2015, 11:36:38 AM »
I put new motor mounts on my 69 L35 convertible but still have this annoying bumping of the manifold on the ps box. It only happens when the car is in reverse at certain rpms. Not a problem going down the road. I installed correct smog manifolds on the car hoping this would cure the problem. The previous manifolds were wrong and the problem worse. Still have not worked it all the way out. Any ideas?

What is the correct finish for a 69 L35 alternator fan? I understand the pulley is silver cadmium dichromate.

Thanks

Restoration / Windshield washers will not turn off when wipers are on
« on: September 16, 2015, 02:36:34 AM »
I rebuilt my wiper motor, took apart my washer system cleaned it and installed an original used good motor. I also changed the switch. I am still getting the washer motor engaged when I turn the wipers on. I am not pushing the button in to engage the washer they are just squirting. Apparently there is a 12 volt signal finding its way to the washer motor. Anyone have any idea where to start to troubleshoot this?
FYI, this is on the standard non RS car.

Thanks guys

Restoration / Inside picture of a 69 windshield washer pump
« on: August 29, 2015, 04:52:58 PM »
I am attempting to rebuild my wiper motor and washer pump assembly. I had so much caked grease on the washer pump that I could not really tell how the thing was originally installed. Now that everything is clean and I am putting everything back together I am stumped on the final assembly. If I had an image that would be great. I have searched google images and can't find anything. I feel like an idiot this should be so easy? If someone had a pic that would be great.

Thanks

Restoration / 69 front coil springs
« on: August 27, 2015, 11:57:21 AM »
I want to make sure I am going about this right. I have installed new leaf springs on my 69 BB convertible, but the right rear still sags. I have measured all four corners and the right side of the car is a little lower than the left side. I have purchased Moog front coil springs in order to have all the springs on the car new and hopefully balance the stance. Will new front springs level the stance out on the car?

Thanks

General Discussion / Anyone know anything about this car
« on: July 10, 2015, 07:34:39 PM »
I have a friend that is looking at this car. Does anyone know anything about it? Is the date of the car on the cusp of when the "X" codes were put on the trim tag?
Thanks for your help.

Maintenance / No power to the solenoid?
« on: April 24, 2015, 10:05:53 PM »
When I turn the key on my car it acts as if I am trying to start the car without the clutch depressed. I have a known good starter, and solenoid. I want to take a few voltage or amp tests in the system to try and find either a bad connection or part. Any suggestions are welcomed.

Thanks

Restoration / Soft seal weatherstripping from NPD
« on: January 13, 2015, 12:50:55 AM »
Does anyone have experience with the current Soft Seal door weather stripping from NPD. I need the trunk seal, both door seals and the header seal that goes on the front of the convertible top. I believe in the past Soft Seal just did not compress properly and it was hard to shut the doors. They were not latex but something else. Any thoughts on this is appreciated.

Thanks

Lawrence
