Re: The Bronze - '69er Resto Project and continuing build-up.

Thanks for your feedback Norm. So to confirm you are using Specialties 1100 lbs spring in the stock location with QA1 adjustable shocks or are you using coil over units with the QA1? Would you have a part number by chance on the adjustable shocks that worked for you? I’ll see if I can get some leng...

Re: The Bronze - '69er Resto Project and continuing build-up.

What shocks are you using Byron? I am using the QA1 adjustable and it has more than enough adjustment for me with the 1100lb rear springs. I know my rear has never bottomed out but I am a good bit higher than you.

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

Yes going through the 40+ feet of wire in my car and multiple connectors I would expect some voltage drop. Especially with the 49 year old wires and connectors. I know the deoxit helped mine but now I am wondering how hard would it really be to rewire the car with modern connectors and new wire.

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

I did a quick test on mine. I'm going to try to get a jumper on the flasher connection to get an exact voltage but my Fluke meter reads pretty quickly and has peak hold so this should be close. Battery voltage is 12.56V. Driver rear gets 11.09V and passenger gets 11.59V when using 4 ways and 11.04 a...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

For my turn signal switch I cleaned the contacts with a small piece to 600 grit sand paper and then put on some deoxit to prevent corrosion and oxidization.

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

I will check mine tonight for you. I recently went through all the connections in the turn signal/flasher wiring. I put Deoxit on every connection in trying to find out where my fault was. Turns out the turn signal switch needs to be grounded to the column for it to work.

Re: 2018 Canby show, June 8,9&10th, Clackamas county fairgrounds

That was a great weekend. Thanks for hosting. It was my first time to Canby but I don't think it will be my last. I left home at 5:30am Friday morning headed for the ferry. It was normally a 16min drive but took me 25 as it was raining hard. I have never driven my car in rain like that and on cold t...

Re: 2018 Canby show, June 8,9&10th, Clackamas county fairgrounds

As of right now I am still planning on going. If it is raining a lot I may be a bit slower but these tires are surprisingly good in the wet. They just don't like standing water. I will touch base with you Thursday Byron but if you want to head down together I can meet you at the store just before th...

Re: 2.3L of fun

I got to some maintenance bits today. I checked the valve lash. It was the first time I have ever done it. I was always a bit intimidated by it. Turns out it was really easy. It feels good to do something you have never done before. I checked the cam and lifters and everything looks great. 20180531_...

Re: 2.3L of fun

I did find some more local but they charged $40 more per tire. The guy I am dealing with ships for free and had the lowest price I could find.

Re: 2.3L of fun

I am still loving them. I really can't believe these are half the price of the A048. I have done a few runs on some very twisty roads up here and it really does feel like I am glued to the road. They are very predictable and I think they are responding to the amount of camber I have on the car bette...

The size limit on the site is 700kb. I try to get mine as close to that as possible.
