Re: Speedometer squeaking

I have not, but it had no resistance to spinning when I put my car in gear and it didn't make noise when I was running it like that

Re: inclinometer installation pictorial

Just pulled my dash apart to do this plug in on my 86 and the wire colors don't match. I do not have a yellow wire or a red with green stripe on the 7 pin connection

edit: nevermind I was looking at the wrong socket since the photobucket photos are gone, all working now

Speedometer squeaking

It squeaks above 15mph and that's really annoying so I'm trying to fix it. I can't seem to find where it was discussed before but I have the gauge cluster removed and there doesn't seem to be a way to open it easily to get inside the actual speedometer. Can I just put some oil inside the speedo hole...

Camber adjusting cam

My driver side is missing what the service manual calls the "camber adjusting cam" and I would like to get another one but I'm having a hard time finding it online

is it called something else when buying a new one? Where can I get one?

Re: Timing pulley guide pin???

when you say "guide pin" do you mean the pin that the tension pulley pivots on the front of the block? a machine shop can make one, if you can find the correct size rod you can make one yourself as well. that shop had no business working on a car they clearly was not familiar with. what a lot of cr...

Timing pulley guide pin???

So my radiator went out that was one of the things the previous owner said the shop replaced as well as the timing belt. The problem is that this "shop" is also responsible for welding my crank pulley on, having the distributor timing off by a tooth, and hooking up the distributor vacuum lines wrong...

Re: Throttle sticking

I know which screw you’re talking about, my one was unscrewed far enough that it wasn’t in contact with the other side at all so I don’t know if that was it or not That adjusting screw should not make contact when at a normal idle, but only comes in contact right after you release the throttle afte...

Re: Throttle sticking

You need to check something else: there is a small diaphragm on the front side (facing the front of the car) of the carb that is there to prevent the throttle from slamming shut (to reduce a spike in emissions). It has a linkage to the throttle shaft with a screw adjustment. It is a simple adjustme...

Re: Throttle sticking

Okay so I oiled all the moving parts and then coated them with lithium grease, the movement was a bit gritty initially and now it’s smooth I also sprayed down the whole carb with carb cleaner It returns to idle now, but if I lightly step on the gas it will still rev up to 1500-2000rpm and hang there...

Throttle sticking

Recently my engine has been sticking at 1500rpm and I need to rev it to get it back to idle

Is that a symptom of the choke sticking closed? I was thinking I need to grease all the fittings again

Re: The mother load of new and used parts. MUST LOOK. 6X6

I dunno Maybe a fuel sending unit if it’s not worn down no 4.10 rear end? never rebuilt one of these racks before but i still have the newer power rack. have a sending unit i believe bu...

Re: Gear ratio problem

Both of my rears have 37 stamped on their ring gear so I'm assuming that means they are 3.73 My front is already 4.10 so I just need to change out the rear to a 4.10, which is what I was planning on doing yesterday until I pulled the old one out and found it was already a 3.73 My reverse light, 4wd,...

Re: Performance carb vs stock

32/36 simply means it's a 32mm primary venture and 36mm secondary Usually it correlates with how much air it can flow through it, so I was just wondering if the stock one has similar diameters in which case you wouldn't see much performance gain theoretically (since they would pull the same amount o...
