    Re: brakes

    Rex .... I believe that that is one of Will Sample's videos.
  2. Re: Adjusting Linkages to Idle stop verse WOT stop

    Jeff ..... The differences in tune that you question is caused by a variety of items. There is a variation in the carburetors; between 40 and 45's, between old carburetors made in Italy and the...
  3. Re: Adjusting Linkages to Idle stop verse WOT stop

    Jeff .... Tuning carburetors is like getting glasses; is this better or is that better. Every car is a little different and trial and error is normal.

    First, get larger pump jets; most of us...

    Re: Removing Fuel Gauge - Advice please

    I agree with Andre ... The normal issues with the fuel gauge are caused by the sending unit and not the gauge. The sending unit is easy to access under a rubber plug in the trunk.

    Re: electronic ignition

    Ron .... Just change to an electronic ignition. Works great, it lasts a long time and the engine runs better. I use Pertronix but others have converted the distributor to a 123 distributor.
  6. Re: Adjusting Linkages to Idle stop verse WOT stop

    Jeff .... An out of sync at wide open throttle is not much of an issue as it is normally small. Your hesitation is your jetting or other carburetor problems. If you have the air log and do not have...

    Re: Where does this wire go?

    Jack .... The one on the driver's side is probably a ground that connects to a bolt near where the wire stops. The one on the passenger side is probably for the fog lights as Leif mentioned. They...

    Steve .... I am back home and if you would like me to check the alternator, send it to me and I'll check/repair it and return it to you.

    Re: Ignition switch repair

    I repaired my switch and had a new key made. You need to remove the lock from the car (a difficult job) and then remove the lock cylinder. The procedures with pictures have been posted on the...

    Re: Remflex - should I add a shim as well?

    Do not use a shim as it provides an area for leakage. The Remflex will seal the manifold. You MUST support the manifold or the engine vibration will vibrate the manifold and cause a leak.
  11. Re: what year and model are these items for?

    My guess on the intake manifold is a M118 engine that was sold and used in Audi and in Mexico Mercedes cars. Link: Mercedes M118

    Re: Club alternator issue

    Steve .... As Walt says, the dash light should go out with the engine running. The easy test is to connect your test light to the blue terminal (dash light) to the big red lug (B+ from the...
  13. Re: Does the Air Log support bar need modifying when used Webers?

    I have not found trouble with the length of the support bar but the edge aon the end that connects to the adapter/air log needs to be ground to fit a tight spot. I also used an allen head bolt which...

    Installing the springs is not too hard if you have the correct tool; spring brake pliers.

    Re: brakes

    Walt ... Do you have Porterfield brake linings? If not, do it, you will be amazed (COF goes from 0.35 to 0.45).

    Re: Club alternator issue

    Andre .... The regulator part number is IN254. It is available from Amazon for under $10.
  17. Re: How firmly should Weber Idle jets be seated?

    Jeff ... The best description for the jets is "firm". Not "tight" and not "loose". They just need to seal but if they leak it is not a big deal. Just do not screw up the threads.

    Re: Weber - Linkage angle

    Jack .... I just buy 1/8 rod from Lowes and then I cut and thread the rod. I use two right handed threaded ends as I don't have a left handed die.

    Re: Weber - Linkage angle

    Jeff ... My link goes in front of the water pipe, much like Leif's setup. The important item is to insure that you can get full throttle by pressing the accelerator pedal.

    Re: Differing advice on Weber settings

    The idle mixture screws are adjusted to the "correct air-fuel" mixture. Start with all idle mixture screws at the same opening (1`/2 turn or so). With the engine idling, open each screw 1/4 turn. ...

  24. Re: Sync Webers by passage of butterflies over progressive holes

    Jeff .... The idle jet feeds fuel to the progression holes. With the linkage attached, the butterflys should cross a progression hole together. The first hole will always be exposed at idle to...
