    Re: BJ7 HS6 Carb Baseline Setting

    Check for a vacuum leak. Some fitting might also be missing. The drain tubes on the bottom of the intake manifold sometimes go missing.

    Re: New Battery Needed for BJ8

    Use a 27 if you have maintained positive ground, and a 27f if you are now negative ground. This keeps the posts in the original location, away from the metal hold down bracket.

  8. Re: I canít remove Wire wheels from new hubs - help

    With the knock-off removed, put ice into the hub, with the thought of shrinking the metal. Heat the wheel hub and renew the ice as needed. This worked for me on wheels that were stuck on from lack of...

    Re: BJ7/BJ8 exhaust systems

    Steve,
    The BJ8 downpipes are spaced a little bit more from each other than the BJ7 single muffler inlets. You probably should replace the downpipes to match the BJ7 system. You also might encounter...

    Re: BJ8 Shifter reinstall

    I used some wire to keep the spring clip ends closer. A piece of exhaust pipe the same size as the opening in the top of the housing goes over the shift lever and provides a good surface to apply...

    As far as even heights for the pedals, I have always added an extension to the clutch pedal, since it must travel more than the brake ( hopefully ). For a shorter person, this can be more...

    Re: Bonnet Latch/Release Adjustment

    I had this problem and it turned out that the pin was slightly bent, so it was catching on th edge.
  17. Re: Master cylinder packing pieces (shims)

    Regardless of why they are used, the design of the packing pieces suggests they could be installed without totally removing the master cylinder. The two-piece design, plus the open slot to go around...

    On the non-adjustable wheel, the long, one piece stator tube is attached at the back of the horn button/directional switch.
    Disconnect the wires at the lower part of the steering box. They...
  20. Re: Non-Adjustable steering column questions

    Send a photo of your wheel, especially the part that goes toward the dash, since that will show whether it is telescoping or not. Adjustable wheel will have a collar and a spiral band.

    Re: Vented Battery

    The Bakelite battery trays are pictured in the factory parts books as standard, but since they were fragile, few survived in good shape. Most often replaced at the time with a board !
