  1. That is the only thing I would be afraid of - the rubber could fall apart into smaller pieces and could reduce oil suction at the oil pick up tube.
  2. Well, my memory serves not that well anymore 😉 . Good luck with getting it out !
  3. Is it so ? Then @riv2x4: I would need then one for remote release version....
  4. I assume we are talking about 400/430/455 engine ? Most likely it rests on the valley pan metal gasket and it will stay there. The metal gasket has the upward edges, that in my opinion will prevent further falling down of the grommet. You can also get endoscope camera for android telephone or tablet (they are quite cheap and surprisingly good), to locate the grommet through the hole it felt in - knowing the location maybe you could get it out with some copper wire, or with some other creative tricks 😉 ? I have one of those $20 price area and it is really good ! Look for the one with LED light integrated (I think all of them have it, but just double check)
  5. I will PM you delivery address. I am living in EU, so we can't meet at Chicago :-(. The address is the storage where I collect the parts for a common overseas shipping.
  6. I would also like to take one cardboard set for me. @riv2x4 - will you consider to ship it further to IL 60156, of course I will cover the costs ? @abandg - will you ship additional set (4 in total, I believe) ? I can do PayPal (preferred) or wire transfer.
  7. Try here I got all what I need (including yoke) for my 71.
  8. I think it should, as the 1st sensor is located at front driver's side wheel, and the 2nd is at the gearbox (shaft output). The CPU is measuring the difference between those two.
  9. Hi, I got some time ago an original Riviera banner from 60's, that I have restored. The box is now new, made of walnut wood (original was made of chipboard, but was in bad condition as you can see at the pictures). The alu frames around the box are original, transferred to the new box. The internal parts are replaced completely: new LED bulb is not generating so much heat (no fan need) new motor that rotates the colored (original) disc The fiber optic and black board is of course original. New internals are not pictured here, but I can include if someone is interested. Pictures (and movies how it works):
  10. I have seen one in operation at the car show once. It is amazing how good it works - on the wet grass car had no problems with the traction at the start.
