    Re: Club Starter Installation..?..

    Rex ... The big wire goes to the big terminal on the starter and the little one in your hand goes to the terminal next to the block. It sounds like you figured it out on another thread.

    Re: Club Starter Installation..?..

    The terminal closest to the engine is connected to the small starter wire. Rex, if you bought the adapter kit, the pig tail would be attached to the correct terminal and provide a screw connection...

  11. Re: Transmission Fluid - is it safe to bend ?

    Jeff .... MB recommended using ATF back in the fifties. I believe that it was because the lower viscosity of the lubricant provided less rotational "friction" to the gears when shifting. I also...

    Re: alternator conversion/old regulator

    Rex ... Those studs are for the generator bracket. Mine were shorter and did not interfere with the alternator bolt. You can just remove the stud or reduce its length (the reduced length would...

    Jeff .... You are the artist.
  15. Re: Are the rear brake adjusters/friction washer on to tight

    Walt .... After looking at Dave Pony pulling with a spring gauge, I wonder if we could design a "simple" tool to test the adjusters by using a torque wrench with a bracket that puts a torque on the...

    Greg .... I love that image, it explains the concept exactly.
  18. Re: Adjusting Linkages to Idle stop verse WOT stop

    Jeff .... The idle jets feed fuel through about 3,000 RPM depending on the throttle position. When I studied my car a few years ago with a wide band gauge, I discovered that my flat spot or...

  21. 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.

  24. 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...
