Guys, what is the size of the fitting that goes into the front brake hoses?
I bought the whole set on RA, but understandably not one of them fits there.
I have already used them all and need new ones to stock up.
Are they these...
I have to look into it.
I just finished fixing the brakes today, so the next step will be the timing advance.
on the driver's side of the HEI cap is "TACH"......
I know about that. But I need to figure out how to connect some kind of gauge to it.
I also thought of trying an old tachometer...
18-20 degrees BTDC at 1100rpm... I understand. Thank you.
I still have to find out if I can connect a multimeter to the distributor so I can read the engine speed.
As I wrote... My RPM gauge is broken.
Until the driveshaft arrives, I'm passing the time on the chicken car.
Carburetor Holley 650 vacuum secondary.
I unscrew the idle adjustment screw all the way out and the engine won't shut off.
The only way to lower idle is to close the mixture richness needles.
Now I have the fuel to air...
Nothing to jealous ;)
I'm sure you'll have it nicer than me and if you have a 77-78 Trans AM I'll be jealous more 😁
Sure... I read it and wrote you where I think there is a mistake. You're already close. You're done in no time 👍
I think you are too high with the end of the engine.
Remove the distributor, support the end of the engine and lower the rear of the engine towards the floor.
Just a bit to give more room to find the axis between the transmission shaft and the guide bearing.
Then it has to fit in there by itself.
I confess that I would never say this in my life. Especially if the prescribed oil level on the dipstick is observed.
On the contrary... I saw oil foaming in the transparent oil pan when the oil was low.
Well... You're always learning :)
The main thing is that your baby is fine 🤜🤛
I hope there will be no delay anywhere and it will reach the port in time.
Otherwise, as I was used to a chrome brake and gas pedal, so suddenly two black pedals seemed somehow unusual to me.
So I bought some shiny things 😄
So I got word from SST that the drive shaft has been manufactured and already shipped to my supplier on Friday.
It should be delivered to its destination on Thursday of this week.
So we could catch a transport ship and the drive shaft could be on my Camaro by mid September.
It looks good 👏
Anyway, like this how it is - without the transmission, only the bellhousing and the bearing, this is how you mount it on the engine.
Then you pass the transmission output shaft through the bearing and thread finger onto the upper hole in the bearing pad.
