Re: Dash wire harness pin removal

i dont think the tools in the otc 4461 are going to be helpful for the twin lock stuff.

it needs something like the tweezer tool in the lisle 57750 kit. prob the silver tool or the blue one.

it a universal block. gm parts supply to fit all engines. kind of rare part you have there. in NZ no less!

the big plug is for the wagon & truck oil check/oil fill tube.
the small plug is the oil temp sensor - 1960/61 engines.

Re: Crank serial numbers ?

yes...............all 64-9 cranks are the same except the 140 & 180 hp engines had cranks which were nitrided. some say that after '67 not all 140 hp engines had nitrided cranks.

Re: Carter YH carb choke setup

#1 goes on #2 shaft.

look @ the tang/lever........you can see how the spring goes. the spring lets #2 shaft move....open/close & keeps the fast cam touching the lever. the fast cam should be off the lever w/the choke open & on the big part of the cam w/the choke shut.
