  1. In addition to the coil. I'd check the distributor cap and wires. look for corrosion or cracks. The wire contacts where they plug into the cap should be clean without oxidation etc. I recently had this problem with another car. I installed new wires and a cap and problem solved.
  2. If you have access to an area of the cloth hidden by a door handle or folded over onto the back etc. I'd test Resolve on it to make sure it won't lighten the color. If it doesn't alter the color, Resolve is pretty good at cleaning upholstery. It will probably lift out that grease. Blot, don't scrub, btw.
  3. Sounds like the master cylinder is bypassing. Needs a new kit or replacement. 'course i could be wrong : )
  4. I have not read the whole thread but you might look at using one of these to power your radio with the car's positive ground 6 volt system. It might save you a lot of hassle. Greg
  5. I dealt with SMS last Fall, There was a problem with the material that was not their fault, they very quickly and graciously made good and I got a really good match for the imitation Croc hide I needed.
  6. while you're at it also check the tail shaft bushing and driveshaft yoke etc. Play back there can cause it too i believe.
  7. Not sure if you cured your noisy clutch but on mine it turned out to be a missing spring from the linkage. When the new engine was installed it was left off.
  8. Wow, Just had this noise appear with my truck. Yesterday, This exact noise and conditions. My clutch is a new high performance clutch, new everything, bearing, plate the whole shebang. The noise appeared when I adjusted the clutch pedal to give less play, I suspect i let it out too far. I bet you're problem is related to adjustment as well. I will hopefully get mine adjusted today or tomorrow to see if that stops the noise.
  9. A google search for welding pot metal will turn up some options, the thing is the weld will need to be ground, heat applied etc, that area is going to look gnarly compared to your otherwise nice chrome plating.
  10. It has a separate usb rechargeable battery.
  11. If you disconnected the vac line and still had the problem my money is on your MC being the fault. Not releasing pressure. pedal travel , assembled wrong, something there..
  12. Without a picture it's hard to say. However if it is possible to get behind the fabric, you may be able to apply a fusible interlining to stabilize it? It would be very tricky to do while the upholstery is in place. You'd need to be able to slip a backer behind it with the fusible and then apply heat with an iron to do the trick. This would not work with vinyl btw.
  13. My r10 equipped truck came to me with a toggle switch. It only has two positions. Why not start by dismounting it from the dash so you can easily get to the back of it and using a multitestor run through the positions and see what you get? Greg
  14. Keep us posted on how it turns out. greg
  15. If you don't want a pro to sew a binding on you might try this stuff. Looks like a careful application could yield good results.
