Can anyone tell if it has a Muncie speedo piercing?

I dropped the fuel tank on my 05c Norwood 68 rs last summer to repair pin holes and there was a piece of paper attached to the upper side under one of those tar strips. It was degraded so bad I threw it away. Couldn't make out anything. Now I'm thinking I should have hung onto it. Anyway some of the paper is still attached to the tank, and it's still leaking so next time I drop tank I'll post some pics.

I do believe there are angels among us. Keep on doing what you enjoy for as long as you can.

Hi Jim. Have you made any progress? I was having similar problem with my 1997 GMC truck and thought I'd share how I fixed it.
One rear wheel cylinder was leaking. So I replaced both. Brakes worked fine until the humidity got really high or during rainy spells.
That's when barely touching the pedal right rear would lock up. After the humidity and storms passed it would go back to working fine.
I thought it might have something to do with the brake fluid that had been absorbed into the brake shoe. I switched the shoes from one side
to other side. Sure enough during the next rain the left rear would lock up barely touching the pedal. Replaced both sides with new shoes.
Haven't had any issues since.

I've no experience with Yukon gears. But I have installed some Richmond gears. I really liked the Richmond because the pinion depth and backlash dimensions are scribed onto the gears.

If you're using a 8.2" 10 bolt, I wouldn't spend any $$$ on it for racing. Spend that money on an upgrade. Get a 8.5" 10 bolt or 8.875" 12 bolt. 1972 thru 1979 nova is a cheap source for the 8.5".

Not used. But at last resort. New.

Shouldn't the head rests be straight? And a real x77 with rear quarter trim?

Isn't the grill supposed to be silver?

Since this is an old thread you may want to start a new one.

Welcome to CRG John. I'm a big fan of buzzing on half a dozen. Can you show us some pics?

 Have you checked the bake pedal pushrod clearance? There should be a little brake pedal movement before pushrod engages booster. Also have you checked which hole is pedal pushrod in? Pushrod should be attached to the lower hole for power assist brakes.

Not sure how you verified booster to master cylinder pushrod length? Appears there are two different lengths and two different master cylinders with different depth pockets. The longer pushrod used with the shorter depth pocket mc will not allow piston to fully return to its stop.
