  We are a little off the auto subject now but a word or icon pertaining to a unique situation or particular subject may be copyrighted.
  For example: Upon investigation the "money bag" symbol with the $ on it was found to have no copyrights attached. A gentleman copyrighted the symbol and now owns it's use exclusively. He may, and has, issued cease and desist orders against its use without his permission. And he can charge for its use. He does not excecise his authority in all situations but he does so against large corporations trying to circumvent guidelines with unethical business practices.
  Example # 2: Apple is just a word but as it pertains to a certain subject it is protected under copyright laws.
          Ex. 2a. L-78
  If one feels his business embodies a word or icon it is wise to search for infringement violations before embracing it as an identity marker.

There aren't. I see from your list you using the origional proportioning valve (the round one)

Pete ( member name: one bad 34) had a problem and I told him to temporarily eliminate the PV with just a brake line to eliminate PV as a problem. If the calipers operate correctly then the problem has been isolated. Now get another PV or rebuild yours.

John,
 Wasn't onebad34 having similar problems. I couldn't find past post. And doesn't the piston in the MC have to return it's stroke fully to operate properly? Or would that affect the rears as well?
 I also had to give my friend my spare MC to replace his "new" one which also would not bleed. Fronts then bled straight away. Bench bled first as you say.
 I have been lucky but my days are numbered. Many are having replacement part problems.

    Why doesn't that surprise me?

No Jeff,
  I have no reason to be up that part of the state for a while. I think if you called them they would be happy to help. Answer your manufacturing questions, maybe send you a pic. If I can miraculously remember I can call tomorrow and see if they are open on Sat.

Randy,
   Begin process as stated in Rick's excerpt from the manual.  A. and C. apparently were contributing factors in my situation. B. and D. may be yours as well, or a combination of the  items listed. If it was running good once before there should be no need to change the jets unless it will run better with new jets.
   You have to check your timing prior to carb adjustments. Just because the fuel pump is new does not mean it is good. Check the pressure.
   Eliminate A, B, and C then perform D if neccessary and arrive at initial diagnosis. Keep in touch.

 I can only tell you what I did to alleviate a similar problem. I did not have a hard starting problem however:
   
  Changed the points, Set dwell and timing. Reset float levels( holley 670 Street Avenger), Adjusted mixture w/ vacuum guage. Surge/Jerkiness now gone.

   How old are your ignition system components and what is the condition of the disributor? If it is sloppy and worn this will affect your performance.
   I look forward to other's comments on this subject as well. Others are more qualified for diagnostics than I.
   Footnote: I switched to full manifold vacuum( for vacuum advance) as per John Z's advice.

Thanks Dave,
 I have'nt had to replace any for that reason and yes the casting is different. Can't see ever having to replace any so I'll have them for another 22.

 Afternoon,
    I've had a pair of new control arm shafts for 22 years. Do they have value for a correct restoration of a valuable car or are they just over the counter replacements?  My Jane cars don't justify using correct parts that belong on a 50k or higher car.

    Casting #381904 GM 40
Thank you

 Thank you. I do understand paint deterioration. The different appearence between the dash and door tops of relics Ive had  is substantiated by this info. That is why I'm glad I found this site. I've done many jobs and some for people who claimed to possess a wealth of knowledge. Even about their own high $ cars.

My 67, origionally 717 standard had non-chrome A-pillars and the one I junked had chrome pillars/deluxe gut.  I just have never seen a suede 67 and want to know why. I have not had a 68 of my own since '82. Going to get one sorry uncut one in a month and I'll be curious about dash.  Thanx.

 I stand corrected. The 5 stars know more than I. Why then didn't the '67 code 717 I parted out not have a textured dash? The car was parked in the 70's w/ 34K after it got popped in the nose. This car was never taken apart. A search finds someone(Mark?} stating they were usually painted suede. What does that mean? Because I would like to paint my black dash if this is correct.
