    Re: Weber - Linkage angle

    Jim,

    Your jet choices are the exact same as mine and all I had to do at sea level was adjust the idle and a quarter turn on the idle mixture screws to get back to 13.8-14.1 air/fuel ratio

    Re: Fuel Injection

    Re: Rear end challenges

    Isabelo,
    I had to use a chisel to very slightly spread the casting to open up the diameter. I was able to tap the whole bushing out. Just be very careful not to over expand and break the casting.

    Re: Gasket needs

    I have a added note. I found a conversion software that takes PDF scans and converts them to DXF files that the laser can read. If this works then all we have to do is get a PDF scan of the gasket...

    Jeff I just pulled my latch for some paint touch up. I will take some pictures of mine. What playing did you do? Could the playing have froze the 2 pieces together?

    That is exactly how mine behaved. I didn't even know there were springs in the system. When you pull the key are you are able to move the complete assembly. This was also my case. The...

    Re: Can the trunk lock spring be replaced?

    Jeff,

    I thought mine was broken as well but it was just full of dirt and grim to the point the springs did not allow the latch plate to move. I was not able to close my lid without pushing the lid...

  16. Re: Red leather below soft top (when top is folded down)

    John is right. I purchased a couple of hides from GAHH and they worked well. I think I purchased 2 hides for the whole car. They sell it priced by the square foot and by half or full hides only.

    I appreciate your devil's advocate roll. It is always helpful to get more eyes on things.
