    Re: 100-6 start up issues

    The connections in the cap between the piercing screws and cables can give out. If there's enough wire, one can trim 1/4" off the end and re-attach the cable to the screw. Some of the replacement...

    Re: 100-6 start up issues

    Make sure your flex-wire ground is good between the movable and fixed distributor plates. Sometimes these become intermittant. If they're insulated the wire can break internally.

    Make sure there...

  6. Re: BN6: Shock absorbers do not fit after renewing the link arms

    A) Is the replacement from one of the regular suppliers - AHspares for instance? If so, maybe that's the only one available out there. If not, suggest returning it and sourcing a good one - as it...
  7. Re: Windscreen wiper wheelbox rubber shaft seal

    Got this from AHspares' site; added the red callout. Is that the seal? Not sold separately. They want you to buy the wheelbox.

    Looks like you'd have to pull the spline and add your own seal. Maybe...
  8. Re: Steering Wheel Location with non-adjusable column

    The Pininfarina Alfas were worse than the Bertones.

    There was something in the late '40s with Nino Farina's relaxed arms-extended driving position that inspired generations of Italian designers.

    Volker,
    Following up on your earlier issue, did you clean the paint off your new links and the tapered stud fits properly?

    Bob,
    Would think you could get your camber change with the offset bushings, especially if you used them on the bottom, too. Adjustable plates seem like overkill pricewise.

    Moving the bottom pins...

    I did the same thing during my engine rebuild and didn't discover until long after the re-install with the wiring in place etc. Park was over on the left.

    Re: BJ7 HS6 Carb Baseline Setting

    FWIW - Des Hammill, p44: jet drop of .040" for 1-1/2" carbs. Jet measured down from the bridge with tail of a caliper. This is a starting point.

    Different approach, thought experiment:

    Re: Steering not right

    Dave,
    It should be possible to clamp the bent arm together with the new one such that the splines align. Then you can observe the alignment of the square stops on either side.

    If with the splines...

    Re: Steering not right

    Dave,
    At least you've got an old one to experiment with grinding away a spline.

    The new one is sure crude and the old one bunged up.

    What a conundrum that the parts individually check out but...

    Don't know about JB Weld for that. Would it contain enough steel to be properly hard against the wiping of the seal. The Loctite product is made for this use.
