Re: Power Window Help

Do you have a multi meter type tester that you can check continuity in the wire? There really would be nothing else given what your describing above that you did for tests. You could use a spare battery with a test light if you don't have a multi meter.

Re: re; grill/frontend assembly sequence

Dug up this post again to hopefully get some additional input. Lots of great info on restoring the grills, but I don't find a lot on reinstallation. Like I posted above, and the way I read Les's post above, you need to put the buckets with the grill work all attached in as an assembly. I have seen p...

Re: 1967 390 GT Air Cleaner

Is the shell the coil is in and the 4 attaching bolts for it plated? I assume the bolt holding it on is black phosphate?

Re: Horns

Could it be either a bad contact at the horn power plugs, or the contacts in the steering column? How are you testing them to get them loud and clear, just a hot wire to bat positive from horn spade? If so that should eliminate ground problem. If your taking them off the car and testing, possible gr...

Re: Couple of 67 interior questions

Bumping this once to see if I can still get a response on the carpet thing. Hoping for a picture of the detail on anyone's car where the carpet meets the quarter trim panels.
Thanks,
David

Re: Correct coil mount 390 BB

Dennis, Check out the current thread on the 390 air cleaners. There are a couple of good photos that show it's position and mounting location. If you want to reproduce your own "yellow top" coil, there is a Rustoleum rattle can called Satin amber that is about the right color yellow. I just did mine...

Re: 1967 390 GT Air Cleaner

Steven, According to that CCOA article your not. At least from what I read. My 6.5 badged car has a chrome lid. Though I got the original engine block with my car it was minus the heads intake and valve covers so I can't say on those. The air cleaner was in the trunk though. Is it possible that it w...

Re: 1967 390 GT Air Cleaner

Steven/Group, So if I am reading this right you could get the chrome dress up kit, and the low restriction air filter with a car that carried the "6.5" fender emblems, not just on a GT? My car has the "6.5" emblems BTW if anyone ever has a standard base with intact snorkel and no emmissions tube the...

Re: Couple of 67 interior questions

Thanks Randy. What did you do with it where it meets the quarter trim panel for those few inches in the back? Trim it neatly and lay over the top, or try to cram it behind? When I install the quarter trim panel with the pinch lace and its screws just no space behind it like my picture shows.
