    Re: The car still does not run well..

    I'm thinking vacuum leak. If you have good timing advance and correct jets the most common cause of open throttle hesitation is a vacuum leak.

    I would tend to agree. While at BL Adams I had the opportunity to see quite a few brake boosters and never saw yellow chromate on any of them. Thanks for the input Henry. :)

    Re: Small window hard top trim

    I always default to "how did hey do this at the factory?" Install it after the window is in the top. Use soapy water as a lube and work slow. A rubber mallet is your friend.

    Check your valve clearances. You may be seeing incomplete combustion due to a tight valve.
