  1. The key was not seeing gas squirt. There is a plunger little thing I think called the accelerator pump. That's my guess as it is was squirts the gas
  2. The hot gas bypass valve is controlled by the thermostat coil in your picture. The nipple is for the tube which guides heat to your carb thermostat.
  3. Dont know about MMO, but back in the day used STP, down the carb and in the crankcase.
  4. Hi, got a 61 trishield clear plastic rolled up. Can measure it tonight , ket me know if interested. Dale
  5. Looks nice, seeing it in person is best. The rust at rear window could indicate rot of lower window support. The AZ car with no A/C would make me leary if if it was really AZ car. But can't go wrong with a solid base to work with. Good luck.
  6. You're on the right track. Use care in removing the bolts, they are small diameter and twist and break easily. Use the new pump as a guide for bolt location. One on the lower area is easily missed. I would tap each with a small hammer and punch to loosen before wrenching out. This from a longtime 64 owner who learned the hard way. I always used Permatex 2 to seal anything. Black messy stuff but never had to remove to reseal. And thermostat removal was always the best, replace while there, they are cheap. Good luck
  7. Had them on my 71 Riviera GS. But they were not the large trumpet horns of 64. They were about 6 inches long and had a slight flare at the front of the tube.
  8. Decades ago had a fuel pump shooting streams of fuel to the underside of the hood. Risked driving home from the grocery and made it before exhaust manifolds heated up. Doubt your pump healed itself. Just a cautionary....
  9. Rear panels also should have wood trim. Looks lo ike you have the rear arm rear there.
  10. Hi I have one to sell you. Original. Drop me a note at gibsonnut@aol.com
  11. Just a guess, but may need graphite lube on cable. Could be binding in housing
  12. Hi, as a 64 Riviera owner forever and living during the 69, 70, 71 introductions, I can say when the 70 arrived I was less than enthusiastic, compared to the 69 it was fat and bombastic. The 71 changed all that again. Bringing unique styling back to the marque. If I was not alone, it could be why few remain as less were sold.
  13. hi guys. Selling my 64. Have many pix and full description on a cd rom. Will try to attach a few pix. Tons of parts. $15K. Dale
  14. All of the above. Always look for console shift in this generation. But does look good
