    WTB '70 Smog Tube Drivers Side

    I can’t begin to remember how many of these smog systems ended up in dumpsters 45+ years ago just out of our shop alone. o_O

    Fuel needs for hi compression engine

    Do you know if your heads have hardened valve seats installed? You could have a problem with seat recession with no lead gas. IIRC hardened seats weren’t used until ‘71. However a lead substitute additive should alleviate that. I’ll let others chime in regarding their thoughts on ethanol...

    WTB OEM 396 engine lift brackets

    And I wonder how many of these brackets are sitting in miscellaneous pails in auto wrecking yards the last 40 or 50 years long before anyone realized they’d have value. :confused:

    Passed an interesting milestone....

    Very valid point. I installed an electronic ignition that fits inside the factory distributor cap on my '74 back in 1990. So that's 16 years with points and 32 years with electronic ignition. :cool:

    Name this car

    Wasn't it John Candy in Planes, Trains and Automobiles who said about the burned out smashed up rental car "that will buff right out". o_O

    Fluid leaking from the speedometer cable connection

    Ditto. Plus make sure the surfaces are as free of any grit as you can possibly get them.

    And I’m in the camp of attempting to answer members enquires instead of “questioning the question” which IMHO seems a bit belittling.

    McCune's Triple option restore project 1973 TypeLT/RS/Z28

    The details in his restoration is second to none. I'm awaiting the finished car but from I've seen so far, there won't be any disappointments.

    Random Poor Running/Stalling

    Pardon my "canned" HEI answer but the pole piece (AKA "pick up coil" in the distributor) causes problems like that. While it may be fuel related, eliminate ignition first.

    removing reverse lockout on 4 speed for better shifting - pros and cons?

    That rod was missing when I got my '74. Having to shift into reverse to get the key out is a bit of PITA but I think the main reason its removed is because some makes of headers interfere. In any event, it also activates the back up lights and that's the biggest annoyance without that rod in...
