  1. I think the Pertronix instructions say you don't use the resistor with their coil. I got the # 2, and tht is what my instruction say. Check the instructions.
  2. There is a collar on the steering column that is turned to loosen to change position then tightened .
  3. The right side for a Tbird is supposed to be the same as a sedan.
  4. Yes - let it sit from November to April, no problems. Didn't use any crap like Sta-bil either. Only thing I do is start it up once a month and run it up to operating temp.
  5. I've used 10 % for many, many years. No problems at all.
  6. Besides what was mentioned above, I carry a spare master cylinder and water pump on a long trip. These usually are not readily available at a local parts store.
  7. If you are not familiar with automobile front ends, I would suggest you take it to a front end shop that has some one who is familiar with the 50's front ends and have them check the various components for any excessive "play". Could be the steering box or any other component.
  8. The passenger side manifolds for the later years has a hole in the manifold for the auto choke
  9. I would hope that after 7 years he got it fixed.
  10. Check all the sockets for rust or corrosion. Also check the mounting for the various lights to make sure the grounds are good. The parking lights and the rear lights are self grounded (no separate ground).
  11. That cable goes to the window washer. When the washers are activated, the wipers work.
  12. Change the flex hoses if they have been on the car a long time. They can break down internally and impede the brake fluid.
