Re: Starving for gas at highway speed

King, if you put a new fuel line on check that you don’t have more than 1/8 inch of tubing beyond the ferrule. Common problem. Good luck.

Re: Horn problems

Back off the adjustment screw until the motor spins freely. No sound. Assuming it will run when the button is pushed, Let the motor spin for about 15 or 20 seconds. This may loosen things up.

Re: Help!!!

Try your horn. If it works, your fuse is good. Easy.
Pass a business card between the points to clean them. If it ran last month, don’t start changing anything. Find the problem and fix that. Good...

Re: Hood supports

If you don’t keep them tight, they can cause a rattle that is hard to find. Just tap on your radiator supports and see if they rattle.

Re: No Spark

You need power at both posts in the terminal box. Easy to track down. Check you fuse.
If you have power at ammeter, you must have it into and out of the term box.

Re: Clutch problem on 30 CCPU

The new ones are reinforced but you may have to do a little grinding to make them fit and function properly.

Re: Engine not starting - checked everything - no more idea

Spray the starting fluid on the manifold gasket while cranking. Thatís my guess. I changed a gasket today. Check torque on the four manifold nuts.

Re: Will this work?

Sure. Better than the one that mounts to the starter.

Stick your finger in the carb and see if it is wet with fuel. If you do, the. Fuel system is probably your problem. Remember, 90% of all carb problems are ignition problems.

Take the switch off and take it apart. Nothing to it. Fix it, or replace it.

Re: install front fender??

You will have to lift the front corner of the body to slid the skirt under the body. Not too bad a job. Take your time. It will go, let us know.

Re: Steering Wobble Troubleshooting

Grab the end of the pitman arm, from the side of the car, and pull it and push it back and forth. If it moves, you need new bushings for your sector shaft.

Re: 30 Coupe Cooling question

You can chase the head gasket leak, but don't assume the radiator is not plugged. Most shops can't remove the top tank to rod the tubes out. Most do a flush or even heat things up, but they don't...

Re: Pressurized Radiator

If I remember right, the boiling point of water is 243deg F at 16 psi. That may be the number for a coolant mixture.

Re: Assembly of steering column

Don't put anything sticky on the big cork gasket. Things have to slide for adjustment.
