Re: 1968 cowl question

Cowl replacement is a big job. There are some 'cut a hole and patch in from the side' techniques, but the patches don't fit exact and don't have wiper mounting nuts welded on. The full lower cowl is a nice unit, has wiper mounting nuts and primer, but you have to cut the top cowl welds and remove it...

Re: Serious Problem on a New Motor

Is there a peen mark in the cup end of that rocker? I cannot tell in the upper pic if it is just grease. It looks like it sheared from the bottom up, because of the 'peel away' curved fracture on top. I imagine there was some slop and a gap such that the pushrod hammered the rocker arm against the s...

Re: Serious Problem on a New Motor

Hmm, Pictures of the failed rocker arm may help. Perhaps a bind in the valve due to a guide or seal coming loose? Pushrod bent or did the rocker take all the abuse?

Gonna have to pull the head I think..

Spring pressure and rocker arm type are good? OEM or what?

Re: Door handle removal

latches, and bungie them together from the inside. Worked for me, anyway. Yea, or just the latch posts and handles.

Re: Removal seals on doors and trunk

'Goo Gone' will help soften the glue and maybe prevent tearing up paint.

Re: Dumb question from one of the new guys (me) about signals.

Good deal. I like the original 'analog' set-up, like early machines I worked on before the digital age.

I have been looking at ordering some of these motors to see if they can be retro-fit:

Re: Dumb question from one of the new guys (me) about signals.

The motor gets weak and will stall when hitting all 3 spring loaded contacts, so you are on the right track. Some can be refreshed by cleaning the motor rotor, it's contacts, and the inside of the can where the permanent magnets are. If you decide to try, mark the can for proper re-alignement of the...
