I like to do the second ring first since it is a softer material. They did not mention an air cooled engine spec.I would assume it is in the .006"/ cylinder inch range for the top and maybe .007" for the second. I have a diamond file for deburring. Time consuming job for sure. Jeff

I have 245's x 50 x 16 in there now so maybe just going to a 17" with 245's x 45x 17 will save me the trouble. I need to compare the diameters. I like the look of a wide tire tucked in the opening. Jeff

Looking at adding a bigger rear tire on my 66 Crown. Just courious how difficult to tub the rear opening. Thinking of using 285x50x17 tire. (the future plan is to use a C5 diff with a C5 rear suspension. The 13" disc brakes would require a 17" rim). Thanks Jeff

Pulled all the spark plugs and cranked it over without the coil wire. Replaced everything and got it running. Oh, oil and filter were also replaced.

Thank you. Maybe a valve on the main fuel line would act as a safety net. I wonder if anyone installed a 12 volt solenoid valve that would open when the key is on.

I am using an electric fuel pump on the 140 engine in my 68 Monza. Car runs fine but pulls to the right. I decided to change the front bushings and ball joints (not one of my favorite jobs). Jacked up the front and after a week I finished up. After the car was taken off the jack stands I noticed fuel dripping from the driverside muffler. Long story short my engine is loaded with fuel including my

I am replacing the front upper and lower bushings on my '68 convertible and was wondering if it is advisable to grease the rubber. If so what type of grease is acceptable. Thank you Jeff

I decided to order a 1968 Camaro front spoiler from Restoration World. It is selling for $20 but it would cost $50 to send it to Ca. from Ohio and another $15 for oversized packaging. I was told that the shipping cost was with their discount. Maybe I should look at buying UPS stock instead of the spoiler. Jeff

Just had my car painted and decided to replace the trunk weather strip. Bought one from and Ca Corvairs after setting it in place, it looks like it is a little to thick. Has anyone used a universal weathersrip that might fit better. Maybe another way to install it is to stretch it to thin it out slightly. Jeff
