Re: Fuel Level Sending Unit

A lot of us have been waiting for the supplier to WCCC and John's Classic to fix the float readings for the XR7 sending unit.

Re: Primer and seam sealer

Like many I've fought the rust battle (Northern Ohio) over the years and no matter how clean the metal was most of the time "rust never sleeps". When Eastwood came out with the first red Encapsulator I saw some hope. I have some 15+ year underbodies that were just sand blasted and then coated with E...

It was documented that they gave some of their race car drivers a free Cougar so that they would be seen in the cars. It would also make sense that it would be a FAST one!

Fast Eddie Schartman was given a 69 XR-7 CJ loaded by Mercury. It was sold by the family a few years ago.

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

If its a unique car you have to get it looked at if you don't know enough. At the CJ reunion there was a 68 Mustang fastback for sale that sure looked the part of a 68.5 CJ car. Stripes, hood scoop, 4 speed, no console, and a big block with the correct air cleaner. Only the VIN had a J in it. I aske...

Re: Carb/Vacuum question

I'm thinking that as rpm increases gradually as in cruisein' the manifold vacuum also increases. So it could be a coincidence that the two vacuums are close and you are getting the proper advance. However pedal to the metal would cause a drastic drop in manifold vacuum and when you really need the a...

Re: Gas Backsplash When Filling Tank

From many coffee discussions about the backsplash some think the nozzles aren't as long after the bend as the old 'regular' nozzles were. Back in the day pumping gas I would be cleaning the windows or checking the oil while the pump ran at full speed, very little 'splash'.

Re: Hesitation after car gets warmed up

Gas cap not vented. Float level low or accelerator stroke too short. Gas line next to hot engine part.

Is the oil light out when engine cold? Oil is thicker. Worn oil pump.
May be blocked oil screen.

Re: Eliminators on the Market (August 2018)

Mike,

An individual recently asked me how fast are Eliminators selling these days. Do you have statistics from your list on how long a car has been for sale? Or an average time? I've seen on Cars-on-line some that have been there maybe a year.

Thanks
Jim
