Stiney, it boggels the mind why you would even want to sell this car.  As you and others have mentioned, this is a time capsule w/good docs.  For Gods sakes at least put a reserve on the car...my 2 cents.

Stiney... second thought, I don't think you need my advise at all.  Seems you've been selling on ebay for quite some time...

If I was selling this car the second set of pictures would be posted on eBay.

I don't really want to sell it, but I also don't want to be one of those hoarders who everyone hates cause their stuff just sits and rots, rather than being enjoyed.

I have more projects now than I'll ever have time to finish.  Plus wife & kids..... would rather spend time with my boys before they would rather not spend time with dad.....

Personally, I see reserve auctions as people getting free appraisals on their stuff.   My thoughts are that something is only worth what someone will actually pay for it, market determines value.   I could be wrong, have been before (ask wife, she'll tell you!)

I'll look for that axle code, thanks for the directions.

Good point on the pictures.  I'm still ticked that there is a limit to 22 pictures, unless you are a subscribed ebay seller or whatever they call it now.  Ebay used to be cool and useful, they've lost a lot if you ask me.   I'll try to switch pictures, maybe they'll let me do that.

Got the pulley checked out for you.  Tried a picture, I just can't get anything worthwhile though.   Beats me how guys take those awesome closeup pictures!

Here's the pulley code  info :  3905995  CF

And I found the axle code too.  PA  0502G1

Most digital cameras have a close up, or macro mode. The symbol used for it on mine is a flower.

Thanks Stiney.  :)

Same on mine. I think the flower symbol is fairly universal for macro.
I've also found with my phone camera, that there are many situations were I get better results with the flash turned off.
