  1. I've installed the same unit on 3 of my classics, the latest being my '65 Riv. I would agree with johnrex on all of the above and Jim in the exemplary way they perform. Steve
  2. Kev, last year I made the mistake of just adding some gear oil to what was already in the diff. I then drove the car about 1400 miles with that new oil coming out of every conceivable place on the rear end. Guess they didn't mix well. Anyhow, ended up pulling the diff and cleaning the old gunk out of it and replacing it with new 85w-140 as I live in one of the hottest places in this country. With a new gasket, it hasn't leaked a drop. BTW, that center section is very heavy; be careful. Steve
  3. Gary, that pass. side rocker arm area looks awfully clean. Your work or was it that way? Steve
  4. Care to share the Brand name & part #, David. Mines been churning way to often, lately. Steve
  5. So where is it that you live with such intolerable conditions, TKRIV?
  6. Thanks for taking the time to post the photos, Bill. You were very helpful in helping me discover that mine were not made for my '65, which has that 'valance' below the bumper running straight across with no dips or curves and no holes for the clips. Steve
  7. I bought a pair of these also and am wondering how to install them as my car didn't have them when I bought it. Steve
  8. Thanks for letting us know how this played out. Much appreciated. Steve
  9. My experience with reversed rims is that they tend to put extra strain on the wheel bearings, especially ball type bearings. Great looking '65 you have there, SB3. Steve
  10. Glad to see you back at it David. Sorry for your bodywork dilema; it's the most expensive part of any build. That's one reason mine's not painted. I'm planning on going the EFI route also and was wondering how you decided on Holley. Just wondering as I've heard they are very good units but I really don't know how to judge one from another aside from price. Steve
  11. A separate wire was used and run from the cold side of the brake light switch to light. Also has a ground wire and a wire which I connected to the brown license light wire in the trunk harness for regular lighting. Steve
