Re: Ceramic Vintage Fuses

Ed, I got mine from NAPA just last year and they look like this. I believe they are color coded.

Re: tom´s front suspension blog

Hi Cornelis. Thanks for sharing that with us. I can understand the less bulky parts, but what is with the kingpin cap? About the suspension grease fittings, I got mine from Parker Hall and they were already nickel plated. Parker's business is now with Motion Products in Wisconsin. You may check with...

Re: GTE Engine Rebuild

Thanks Chris; I appreciate this. Interesting, typically M5 bolts have a 8mm hex. As you can see, mine does not have that little leftover "nipple". Sadly, I lost this bolt, but with your measurements I'll try make one. Thanks again.

Re: FACET FUEL PUMP 476087

I've reached the conclusion that the old FISPA pump does a satisfactory job at a point where it is just a couple hairs from self destruction. You have to get the stroke to a point where you get the longest travel, but without bending or breaking the two support arms of the plunger.

Re: GTE Engine Rebuild

Can someone please tell me if this bolt has any special lettering on its head? You can see it better from the left side of your engine bay. Thanks.

Re: GT rear view mirror rubber bumper

Ed, assuming your arrangement is something like mine, if you get a foot of the (close enough) rubber piping from McMaster, with a razorblade you can make a 100 of these in 10 minutes.

Re: GT rear view mirror rubber bumper

Ed, I can't imagine someone marketing a part that is pretty easy to make. I made mine. You may find the material here:

Re: gas gauge sending unit 330 GT 2+2

I had the very same problem when I reassembled my dash. The fuel gauge would peg all the way to the right as soon as it powered up. My problem was the two wires were swapped. Did you make this same mistake? You may look into the sending unit about the 3/4 full issue.

Re: Green Berlinetta Boxer

Sadly, age brings about a certain state of mind called "maturity" and one of the downsides of being in that state is that you realize that spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a car is, well, plain stupid. So, that said, the Boxer desire is going to grave with me. :lol:

Re: front wheel bearing + oilseal

Kim, I can tell you that the bearing in the third picture (in the above post) is the original bearing, which is the roller type. Note, there has to be a set (or grub) screw. Make sure to remove it before you go at the retainer ring with your new wrench.
