Replaced the fuel pump my question is about using anything to seal the threads on the fine thread fitting. https://preview.ibb.co/ggONHa/20170610_155703.jpg I understand the coarse threads don't require anything, Im just curious about opinions on the fine thread side. Also I had the motor rebuilt an...

Re: Water pump thermostat bypass

So I crimped down on the tube, cinched it down and this thing would not budge. After working on it a bit it broke off... Pretty easily. I ended up using a smaller Flathead screwdriver to wedge between the tube and block, got it in a little way, tried the same on the other side... Looked like I may b...

Re: Water pump thermostat bypass

Excellent, thanks. I'll give it whirl.

Summer is here, which means it's time to drive the bird... Also means it's time to work on it

I'm having some trouble getting the metal tube out of the engine block that connects into the back of the water pump (coupled with a 2"or so piece of rubber hose). The tube is rusted and falling apart, I put some liquid wrench on it but haven't had an...

I thought I had the same problem 2 years ago...

Took the fuel tank out and found it full of rust, the screen on the inlet tube in the gastank had deteriorated and was plugging up the fuel inlet in the tank

There are a number of cheap-o sound dampeners out there - parts express used to sell some that was much cheaper than dynomat Like dusty says -layer the cheap stuff up and it will perform the same. On a side note -I always see people putting the stuff on bigger panels like the insides of their quarte...

I don't know how you feel about losing your heat and ac if you have it... All the stuff under the dash probly weighs close to a hundred pounds... Also you may want to consider losing the dash altogether, get some gauges and build a lightweight dash of some sort -that would prolly save 50 pounds or so

You're talking about shaving 1200 pounds off the car....

removing the drip rails completely MIGHT save you 4 pounds....

I don't even know where to begin
