That is what I meant when I said "There is also a smaller one where the up-pipe connects to the compressor outlet", bisch.

Just checking

What plugs do you run? Bosch or NGK

I have the bronze replacement throttle bushings in my cart. Seeing as the OG are plastic I'm sure they are gone.

Thanks, again!!!

No problem, Deez - it's fun to spend other peoples' money for them, and to keep adding to their "to do" lists.

I have Bosch plugs currently, butt when it comes time to change, will be using the NGK variety that have the smaller sized hex (much easier to work with).

It's both curious and disturbing that those things often appear in the same line of sight!

Ride height is set. I'm about a 1/2" higher than last time. But I am expecting 1/4" or so of settle after I get some miles on it. Bouncing and rolling only do so much. Calipers were shipped Thursday so they should get here Tuesday.





Now onto the valve adjusting.

79 #610 Winter Projects. Advise Needed

Inner spline counter clock wise one and outer spring plate clock wise one. It raised the car an inch or so. Darn near perfect. I did need to adjust the drivers plate up a little and passengers plate down a little. But I don't think I'm off on teeth because he plates were even side to side when checked with a digital angle finder prior to setting it down. Oh and I set everything with the anti roll disconnected.

Thanks Bros!

The advice all worked out good. But I would add one thing. Don't use a regular plug socket when removing the plugs. If you are unfortunate enough it will go onto #1 and you will spend over an hour trying to get it off!!

After that the rest went smoothly. Half needed adjusting. Mostly the exhaust were too tight. Scary.

The bronze bushings are already in the throttle linkage. So there's $2.00 down the drain.

I need to order a cap and rotor. They are not in the best shape. I'll just do a full tune up with fuel filter to have a starting point on maintenance.

Cool about just half of them needing adjustment - that's the thing that is nice about using the backside () method; can easily measure the lash and avoid needlessly adjusting ones that don't need it (unlike using the Kirk tool, pointer tools, and the traditional method with the funky feeler blade holder).

As you are probably aware, the tightening of the exhaust valves that you noticed is typical - combustion pressure pounds them into the valve seats, and combined with the much higher heat of the exhaust 'v' intake valves, the stem/rocker gap tightens with use . . . kind of counter intuitive, as it is easy to assume that the stem gap would increase with use due to wear, butt that is not the case.
