  1. Time for a thread resurrection. I'm having the exact same issue on my 62. I want to install a Pertronix unit while I have the distributor out. Pertronix calls for .010-.060 at either end of the play region in the distributor. However, I have about .2 as well. So, there's no way I'll get that. I ordered some shims, but I', concerned about over shimming it and then have an oil pump issue. Any thoughts? The engine block is at the machinist right now getting redone. So I can't put the distributor in to check.
  2. Did you ever solve this? I just climbed in to the same boat. I thought it might be chopped up felt soaked in oil.
  3. I like your sandblaster cleaning method better than mine. Scotch-brite, gloves and a bucket of degreaser. Talk about tredious.
  4. They also seem to be the only game in town.
  5. It seems that if you have a thickness spec for the steels and the friction disks and you have a specified count, you can come up with the required overall thickness. There's you spec. Is there a +/- as well?
  6. My mistake, I don't know where I got that number from.
  7. It's kind of disappointing to see a car so clean and then they pop the hood and it's filthy.
  8. That's hilarious. I'm sure someone will chime in to tell you that you bought the wrong brand or that Holley sniper EFI causes baldness.
  9. I've spoken to a couple of Nailhead "experts" on the phone recently as well as some other "experts" regarding other things car related. Without exception, they have what you might call "Strong" personalities. It's tough having people speak to you that way. It's made worse because you probably wouldn't be calling to ask questions if you knew what you were talking about. In their defense, they probably get a bazillion dumb calls a day from people who for the most part don't end up spending money. But it is tough to want to do business with them a second time or recommend them.
  10. That should address the claim about Nailheads not being able to breathe.
