sorry, I do not. The spring is more or less a V-8 style, for four barrel carbs, etc. New springs also are NOT fatigued where the bend contacts the throttle linkage. that is where most springs break.

Lordco sells a dual spring set up that works very well. It has an inner saftey spring in case the outer main one breaks. A very good idea on performance motors that can rev to the moon on a broken spring/full throttle misshap. Been there.

When we all started running really sticky race tires, we could see the steering box actually TWIST the whole frame rail it is bolted to! So, we ran a steel peice from one of the bolts on the top of the steering box to the inner fender. From there a hole was drilled and the steel piece was bolted thr...

To the best of my knowledge, none of the dealers here (Vancouver) put on carb or headers. That was only IF you requested them to install them, not as a dealer option. May have voided warranty. They did put in a heavy duty clutch in my 1972 wagon ( 2000 roadster clutch ) that they had no problem with...

I agree, waste of money and time. front engine bay is actually pretty stiff. Andy and I put a plate on the strut tower and a six foot bar out from that and...got around byron figure of less tham 1/8" deflection. Spend time on trangulating the steering box! You will get more a performance from that m...
