  1. Is your accelerator pump working. Look into the carb (car not running and cold) and check if gas is pumped into the carb when the throtlle is depressed.
  2. Great now I can do something else before I finish the other stuff I started.
  3. I don't think so, the only way I ever tested a therostat in in a pan of water with a instant read thermometer. You've got it easy no body parts in the way.
  4. I like the air cleaner. What are the parts for the air cleaner, did I miss it in postings?
  5. You not only cleaned them, you polished them. I used this self-etching primer on many of my parts that were brought down to the metal.
  6. Some are just removing the rubber washer from the residual valve and just go with that. Last month I installed a new Scarebird kit and have new drums and shoes in my newly installed 2000 Cherokee rear axle.
  7. I'm using the orignal MC on my 48 with Scarebird disc and Cherokee rear with drum. Not sure how it would work with 4 disc. I also found answers on the Plymouth Owners Club facebook page.
  8. Mr. The Finger, you can plug them into the side of your Akai X2000 reel to reel.
  9. Sounds like my Spring. Except I still using a original Master Cylinder with the washer removed from the risidual valve.
  10. Lots of History I spent 20-years in the Army. I father fought in Okinawa. My mother's had three brothers, a sailor and two tankers. Uncle Ken was in the Battle of the Bulge and married his English nurse, and my cousin was born in London during the bombing. Prior to joining the Army I worked at Munnsingwear back when they made clothing in America. It was 1969 and Vietnam was pretty hot and heavy. My father died in 1967 and I was working at the company my father was when he died. So I was talking to a friend of my father's at work about joining the Army. He said, "I was in the Army", with my family I just shrugged. "Do you want to see a picture of me in the Army" he said. Sure, I replied. He pulled out his wallet and showed me a picture of a very young man in his brand new uniform. I Said, "Hans, you weren't on our side were you?" One of my favorite stories that I told during my 20 years.
  11. 20 years in the US Army and never made it to the UK. Love the pictures. We had no crelabrations of VE day, or sense of history. Also you have a very pretty wife.
  12. Removed the front wheels again to check and tighten. Both caliper guide pins missing on right front wheel, apparently parts were falling off.
  13. I'm staying with the parking brake on the transmission and I'll check and see if I can figure out what brake hose was used. I had my swap done, I wanted it done long before I started this thread 5 years ago.
  14. Are you referring to the shock mount. I ordered it from Summit. So in general eye mounts upper and lower an extended length from 13 to 15 inches, a compressed length 9, and a stroke of 8 to 10. With an extended length of 15" and a commpressed length of 9", wouldn't that be a stroke of 6"?
