Re: Troubles after carburetor rebuild

Re: Banging noise when braking

don't bother taking the whole drive shaft out,just unbolt it from the rear end and the flange behind the steady bearing,,make sure you mark the two flanges at the steady bearing so it goes back in the same place it was,,the ujoints are replaceable use a Rockford 430-10 or a neapco 1-0430

Re: Clutch pedal release sector

when I got my 86 fwd wagon the pedal went hard to the floor so I used 5/8 flat washers ,cut a slot in them and pulled the cable out from the bell housing and dropped them on,,it took 5 to get the clutch pedal back to normal,run her over 100000 miles like that,,2 dollar fix
