  1. The subject line is vague, I know but I don't know how else to describe it. I 3D printed one a while ago and recently found it in my junk stash. I put it aside because it couldn't be used with the silicone hoses that I bought. I still have the design on my computer, I think and I could make them for people that need them. I waneed to see if there was any interest. BTW, the original part is out of my 64.
  2. I've been using Super Tech Heavy Duty SAE 15W-40 Motor Oil. It's got a high concentration of ZDDP according to the datasheet and comparing that number with other brands/types. I haven't seen any negative effects with it in Southern CA climate. Chris
  3. Man, I wish I had known you were in the area sooner. I lived in Carmel Mountain but still work in Carlsbad. So I'm doing the commute. Fortunately, it's not as bad as Pre-COVID. I hear you on the maintenance. I have a log and it surprises me how much time goes by from one maintenance day to the next!
  4. I'm up in Temecula (live in San Diego up until two years ago) and we had ash on our cars this morning. I need to get my car out but it's been way too hot. I'm glad you got your issue sorted. I have the Edelbrock 1411 and I had some issues last week. It turned out I didn't let it fast idle long enough for it to warm up fully. Choke closed up and I couldn't get it started until I manually opened the choke back up. We are definitely spoiled by this "cold" start weather. Chris
  5. I use Moog and that's the only brand I'll buy. I recently refreshed my front end with Moog parts. No complaints. Chris
  6. I'm not at home and I need to place the order. Otherwise, I would consult the manual. Besides, if we all just went straight to the manual, we wouldn't encourage dialog on the forum! I hope this thread, along with my other threads, helps someone out down the road. Chris
  7. Thank you all! Ed - I've got both manuals and I do work on my own car. Do I think I'm good enough too...probably not as good as some...but it keeps me busy. Chris
  8. Spoke too soon... I need the pan to block bolts. Not the drain bolt. Chris
  9. Thank you! I googled it but nothing came up for specifics. I will use part geeks next time. "Teach a man to fish..." Chris
  10. Hey all, I did a search and came up with nothing. Could someone please tell me the thread pitch and length of an oil pan bolt for a 425? Thank you Chris
  11. If I follow what you're saying, Jim, I'll be having a Homer Simpson "Doh!" moment in the near future.
  12. I ordered a dual master but have not installed it yet. I ordered AC Delco part number 18M1025 from Amazon. I believe it is the short piston version. Do a web search for that part number or get it off Amazon. Chris
  13. John, i am using an Edelbrock carb and I made a bracket and mounted a microswitch to the carb base to actuate my kick down on a 64. You can see what I made if you search for microswitch or look at my profile and view my current posts. I hope that helps! Chris
  14. Try Cooper tires. I got my set from Pep Boys. Nevermind...you stated they don't come in your size. Move along, nothing to see here. Chris
  15. Just took it out for a drive. The kickdown definitely works! Much more consistent than the old worn factory switch. Chris
