  1. I'll guess R4581 has the fresh air intakes under the grille below the windshield.  Look up under the dash and find them, then connect some type of automotive conduit hose, I think @ 1.5" to the flange and route it to the shift console.  There's a "ram air" type effect at the base of the windshield and will force air into the conduit and through the shifter quadrant area..


  2. I had posted a link to a Parts Sale on the SDC forum.   In the fray of  having to deal with a sudden surge of interest, I neglected to get over here right away.    There's still a lot of stuff  available.   Have a look ....    But please do NOT use THIS FORUM as a messaging avenue, use the email link on the sale page 

    thanks/ RJ

    Thank you.  My decades old faded pencil notes have become hard to read.  I probably should have transcribed a lot of the information years ago, but saw no reason to do it at that time.  

     

    Well, it's time that you looked for all your notes and rewrote them, created a digital file and stored it.  Do you know how much info goes down the tube when we "depart the fix"....?

     

     

    ....and that goes for anyone who has anything  worthy, valuable, interesting, but not speculation...


  5. Has anyone come up with a mounting design  or an actual mounting device,  for "under the bumper" road/running lights without having to drill the underside of the bumper.   I'm looking at the radiator core support as a base to bolt on some kind of a mount either manufactured or fabricated.  

    thx

     


  6. Yaaaa..   similar to mine when new.   Isn't that Monterey Green Firemist paint?...  with Artichoke vinyl trim?.   Lucky for you you have the artichoke seats also.  Mine had ... wait for it.... "Tarzan Citron" seat inserts  and door panels  ( read White & Black Houndstooth cloth)  Talk about gaudy..   I'll see if I can find an old pic..

    The one thing this time, which needed a lot of contorting was reinstalling the heat shields for the spark plugs.  I had removed them to install the manifold, then forgot them until after the new one was in place..#@!**$ 

    A long time ago, I cut one hole in the inner fender  to service the #7 spark plug and another to adjust the steering box.   The #5 plug could only be accessed by jacking the car up by the center pin, removing the RF wheel and sliding under from the passenger side, reaching up, etc  

     Also...a long time ago... made a couple special tools to tighten the PS pump pressure line and rear mounting nut.

     

     


  8. The three studs are case hardened 3/8X16 rod, brass nuts w/ lock washers.  If you have a lift it's fairly easy.  On your back, not so, but doable by moving the steering gear (left) out of the way for that one closest to the block and  right  for the others.  Just used an ordinary 9/16 wrench on the inboard one and a long extension socket on the other two.
