Stuttering / Cutting out, haven't a clue

Just a thought and without looking back through to the beginning... What hose clips are you using. The ordinary worm and band "jubilee" ones are no good in this application. I found they squeeze and deform (permanently)the nylon tube. One needs to use the type that are a spring steel with one end ha...

se6 chassis and build progress.

Fluid failure doesn't measure the fluid in the reservoir. It is worth being aware that there are two different methods of warning light activation in MASTER CYLINDER. As said, when brake pedal pressed and both hydraulic circuits of the dual system are intact then the piston stays central. the double...

Bottom front damper bolt

It should not be forgotten of course that there are spacer washers involved in only the power steering between bottom damper bracket and wishbone (0.13 inches thick).

usually straps are to ensure individual loops of the frame end up in their correct positions when hood erected. Also there aught to be a strip of material (glued?) on top of each hood frame to act as anti chafe between hood and frame?

Dip stick tube

Silly question time! Just got back from 300 mile run and went to check oil level (1977 se6a) . As I lifted the dip stck, the tube came out with it.
