It doesn't hurt anything if the lower 4" holes are open. The upper 3" hole on the passenger front must be plugged or hooked up the heater to prevent lose of cooling air to the #5 cylinder.

If you know what the stock distance from the ground to the crossmember is and adjust for tire height differences that you might have you would end up with the full suspension travel. When people start cutting springs you loose upward travel. You would then adjust springs to maintain this ride height. In a Corvair you have to cut the springs to get the stance that you want but when you are buildin

The buttons look to be '66 and I think also '67? The Monza crosses would be '66 and later.

So when the skid plate hits the ground it would be like jacking up the car by the drivetrain, only hard on the mounts.

GM changed the location of the vent somewhere around '64? The vent was first towards the rear of the car and then it was moved to the front. Later the baffle was added and it helps shield the vent from being hit by oil. If it is coming out of the vent and the vent is towards the rear maybe a later cover would help? Maybe if you could clean up the oil and then drive it a short distance and ta

It crosses over at the front edge of the seat riser in the floor, this way it doesn't stick down to push down the heater duct. There should be clips to hold it and I think that some of the clips are on the side of the tunnel.

They would be souvenirs from cars that use to be. And no I don't sell them to change the identity of a car.

I think that my jets are #52 with the full smog system. Try unhooking them sometime and you will be surprised how well it runs. I have seen other cars at the conventions with the pumps unhooked also. As Mel said I don't mash it down very often but when I need to get going it goes. The chocks have to work and it is alittle cold-blooded when it is cold. Since the pumps are so prone to failing

I don't have my accelerator pumps hooked up on my car and it doesn't backfire and pop out the carb. So I would take that carb apart and look at anything that could make it lean like float level, make sure that the cluster is flat and blow out all of the passages again.

After all of these years some snap switches snap at lower temps than they were meant to do. So the light could have come on to soon. Without a gauge there is no way to know. If the heads are deflashed and everything is clean there shouldn't be a problem with overheating.

I believe that the delete plate has one stud in the middle with a wide strap to bridge the opening. So cutting out the middle would make it hard to attach. I think if you use a radio bezel or delete plate that the gauges would be angled downward when looking at them.

I have the frame sections from about 6 or 7 cars that I have parted out and I think that they all were double stamped.

If you unplug the connector at the frame rail that goes to the oil pressure and the temp switch and the light stays on the problem is in the wiring of the car.

On the '66 coupe that I made my trailer out of it had a 5 where the 6 should be for the year. All of the rest of the digits matched with the vin tag so I don't think someone swapped for one exactly a year off.

There is test to "motor" the generator to see if it works. I believe that you unhook and ground the field terminal and unhook and apply power to the arm terminal. The generator housing also needs to be grounded but if it is on the car that will already be done. If on the car take off the belt.

The generator doesn't know if the regulator is new or used it just does what the regulator tells it to do. A lot of places tell you to change both probably to sell more parts.

The steering column tubes are the same diameter. The bracket is larger on the '67 and later.

The loose yellow wire might be for the radio power. For the '69 when the fuse blew you had no opposing voltage to turn off the light so the light was now showing that the alternator was producer power.

If the heater fan works the fuse is good.

If the engine is all together (sealed up) it would not hurt anything to clean the guck off of the outside.
