$4182.41 was the dealers cost from the factory. Not sure what it was to the original owner.

Re: Back firing

I had something like this happening on a more modern vehicle and found I had a bad spark plug wire that was arcing to the manifold so the full spark for that cylinder wasn't making it to the plug. Somewhat easy to see in the dark as you could see the arcing from the wire to the manifold.

The one on the drivers side is for the headlight doors and the one on the passenger side is for heat/air conditioning system. At least that is how it is on the 70.

[/quote] Sadly for a '70 it's an expensive proposition. All in well over $500 by the time you replace the sync board, two flashers, the tail lights, the marker adapters, and the marker bulbs. Especially painful considering I have already replaced the board and flashers with the non-LED models :oops:...

Re: WCCC LED taillight bulbs worth their weight in gold!

Do the LED bulbs require any changes to the stock system or are they a direct replacement? How many changes it requires depends on the year model you are putting them in. The link below has a table that shows what is required for each year. https://ebayimages-westcoastclassic.netdna-ssl.com/plasma/...
