Re: cover that holds the alternator

dont think that orange plastic part was on your plate.............theres nowhere for it to go. everything you need to put the plate back on your engine is already there.

id say the orange plastic part was in the bucket of diesel when you put your plate in there.

Re: cover that holds the alternator

mine has been drilled out and a couple hose adapter go to the oil filter and to another larger cooler we did that back in the early 70's but I don't remember this part. since your stuff is modified & not stock we cant say what part you have or where it should go. youll need to trace the oil path in...

Re: Engine ID

the body tag will have a O in group 4 if the car had a turbo. turbo cars have a cut out for the exhaust pipe - 140 cars dont.

theres other things to look for also - but these 2 are are ez to check.

Re: Rings/Jugs Installation Question...

If I recall correctlty the manual says you can load the pistons from the bottom of the cylinder. Works on the early models, BUT on the longer stroke engines (64 and later) the cylinders are notched at the bottom so you CAN'T load the pistons from the bottom. Oddly the 65 manual was NOT corrected an...

Re: Ignition timing range ?

no. the stock setting is 24 is because thats what the engine needs for the correct timing at full throttle & w/boost. vacuum advance has no affect on timing at full throttle & during boost. Actually the engine gets more then 24 at full throttle w/boost. 24 is what the engine gets until the turbo ki...

Re: Ignition timing range ?

I was now able to set the timing - Clarks recommends 18 degrees, I'm probably closer to 19 @ 825 rpm. When I hook the vacuum/pressure hose up, the rpm increases to about 1000 and the advance runs up to about 26 degrees (this is from the vacuum advance). Any issues with this ?? @ 18 btdc you will be...

Re: Ignition timing range ?

It seems to me that if the pressure retard is working properly, at some point the centrifugal advance and the pressure retard will be working against one another. i get what you mean..........but they dont work against one another - they work with one another to get you the factory timing w/boost &...

Re: Ignition timing range ?

Re: LM Monza Dash-Center Pod Options

the factory option was a clock. people have put tachs there - no problem.

either can be added after the fact. youll need to add the wiring. the clock gets a 12v wire. a tach needs 12v & a wire from the coil.
