    Hey Jonh, Just went down and did what you said. The neddle was to the far right and when I grounded it the neddle went to the far right. So the sending unit is bad based on the test right. I actually ordered one from doc rebuild today. I'm going to connect the mech. temp gauge to see what I temp I get while waiting for the sending unit. Your the first one that ever said to do this check. Kudos to you. I'll post my results of the mech. gauge. Impressive background. Thanks, Tony

    Tom Bryant liked post by JohnZ On thread : 4 speed shifter
    The new '64 shifter was designed for use with a Muncie, and you don't have one - you have (or should have) a Borg-Warner T-10, and from '57 to '62 the T-10 used a unique shifter and linkage (see...

    I'd avoid the "S" (extended tip) with your L-79; there have been reports of the tip contacting the pistons on the SHP engines with domed pistons. :beer

    No, it's not - the rear underbody and wheelhouses/quarter panels are the same, common to both body styles; there is no difference. Folks forget that the midyear body and chassis were designed in 1960...

    Run a 5/8" NC tap through it, then install a 5/8" NC bolt, run it down until it bottoms out on the crank, then keep turning and it'll pop right out - no grease, no mess. :)

    It's a 4.11. 9:27 would be 3.00:1, and that never existed (and wouldn't work due to the even tooth count). 9:47 would be a 5.22:1, and that never existed. 9:37, however, is 4.11:1, and that's the...

    The calculator comes back with a 4.96:1 axle ratio, so it's most likely a 4.56 axle with some speedo error. There are no 100-mph blasts in your uncle's future until he changes the axle ratio to...

    Is the original factory catalytic converter still installed? If so, it may be partially blocked and/or disintegrating right below your feet. :thumb
