    Re: BJ7 heater blower vibration

    The blower unit is mounted with rubber grommets as vibration isolators. If they're shot, that could be the problem. (Note use of 1/4-20 u-nuts on feet for ease of removal/replacement of unit.)

    If anyone uses the Hylomar EAP5, would like a followup on how well it works and whether the small tube is enough for the typical exhaust system.

    Re: changing lock barrels

    Dave,
    Instead of tack welds to replace the "pinches", would drilling the square shaft and fitting a roll pin be an option?

    John,
    Did you pursue that avenue and if so, did you verify it with a panic stop?

    FWIW before installing the proportion valve, I did a panic stop with my then-new 4-wheel discs and the car about...

    With the stock setup, the rear drums are true emergency brakes, in that they will actually stop the car.

    Re: AH 3000 rear disc brake conversion

    Gonzo - you won't be sorry you converted to 4-pots. Make sure the calipers fit your smaller (Type 14 IIRC) adapter plates. I believe they're available in both Type 14 and 16 bolt centers.

    Re: Wheel Tire Camber

    I have bronze offset bushings from one of the UK suppliers - not recommended as they were quite a bit more expensive than the plastic bushings, and required machining to fit. No effect on ride.

    Would surmise any baffles run front-to-back. Crosswise would interfere with the sender float arc. Spot welds in picture support this.
