Hey guys, first off the torsion bars for the trunk lid are 2 different sizes. Charlie and I checked today. The one with the rubber booty is for sure bigger in diameter. Also Charlie noted there was NO wear marks at the primary holes for the emblem mounting. Perfect paint, no nut marks etc. around those punched holes. All this along with the stripes paint add up to a D80 option Baby! So, cool, I have a couple factory spoilers. Yea  Grin Grin

 Heat riser is free and rocking back and forth during use.  

Moving on to more important things... We did some checking on wiring and things. Front harness has been messed with. Wires cut, spliced... Going to have to replace the front harness. Resistor wire gone, hence that porcelain ballast resistor. We bypassed ignition main wiring and a couple others. Carb swap is happening middle of next week. Just narrowing as we go. There was talk of a possible flat cam lobe, but we have other things to check first. I am being patient and greatly appreciating Charlie's knowledge, and sharing it along with his time.

Chick, I will check what you asked ASAI can ....Danny

Thanks, I was thinking it was more flat than the dash.

Yeah sorry, the gloss terms are easily mixed up. That's what I was meaning but got my sheen order wrong.
This article gives the correct order [I think]

Masking is one way, but the tight radius's might be tricky.

I was just remembering that Kurt. I looked and they both look the same to me. I will mic them to be sure, but they look the same to me by just bending down and looking in. And shouldn't the spoiler be the short version? Up until march of '69 I thought ALL spoilers were short. There is also the FRONT spoiler. Could they both have been added at a dealer, D80? Paint is masked around the emblem. Danny
Danny, spoiler car had two different size torsion rods and non-spoiler cars had the same diameter. What is interesting is normally the cars that the lid just sits there when you turn the key with a spoiler clearly indicates the car has the same size rods and was not originally equipped with a spoiler. But yours pops right up! They are somewhat similar but are different in size. Check them rascals to know for sure. Hope the carb swap with Charlie gives some clues to the issue.....

Have you checked that the heat riser valve is working? If the car has been sitting for a few years, the valve could have rusted shut, and not be opening when it's supposed to. Probably wouldn't cause idle troubles, but could affect higher rpm performance.

So I don't have a torch per se, only a little propane gas bottle torch. So how hot do I get the parts?
If you can put a wrench on the bolt (use glove) apply pressure with one hand while heating with other until it turns. This is one way. The other is get 'er cherry red and let it cool. I hope you are taking the shifter off the car to heat it. With out experience in heating parts, you risk catching the car on fire if part left on the car. Make sure you have a fire extinguisher near by and nothing flamable in the area. Garage near me scrapped cars for cash and some kid working there was draining gas tank by drilling bottom of tank with an electric drill. Burnt the place down.

It's not a nightmare. You would have more time in buttwelding and skimming that skin seam than throwing on a full qrt. Out of box AMD qrts are not that bad. Chances are the deklid radii and lid to qrt sides will be off. If you want gaps better than factory then mods are required. Rebuild your door hinges and align them to the old quarters. If you don't want to do the hinges, send them to Willie. 8 and 9 hinges are a no-brainer but I send my 67 hiunges to Willie because he does and excellent job for the money, bettter than any rebuild kit you can buy.
I still really really dont want to have to deal with the nightmare of setting up all the gaps, wish I could find a sail panel.
