Re: Steering wheel replacement

I have the same wheel on my 68 and planning on taking it off this weekend. I'll try and get some pictures as I take it off to try and help.

Just an FYI, your console is the 1967 style not a 1968.

I tried to PM you about the radio and the steering wheel, but it doesn't seem to be going through.
I got it and sent you a PM back.

Re: Good adjustment

Had this issue with my 69 and after a few purchases, the only thing that fixed it was a new good quality set of hood hinges. The arms on the cheap set I bought would bend out when I closed the hood after a few uses.

I bought the brushed aluminum painted one and it seems a little iffy at best especially the driver side lowerd curved areas. Not yet. Been working on repairing the roof after taking th...

Re: Back firing

[/quote]Huh? If a cam is 180 degrees out, it is right where it would be in the correct position. Think about it, one turn of the crank means one half turn of the cam. So if the cam is out 180 degrees, that just means the crank is in its second of two turns required for a full revolution of the cam. ...

Re: Back firing

Re: Back firing

Yes I did rotate the crack because I removed the pistons to make sure the rings weren’t lined up and everything was ok. I once had a cam out 180 degrees once as I only rotated it once to get the piston up at a top dead center. One turn is compression and the other is exhaust. I am just thinking thi...
