Re: Daytona Bell Housing

thanx again. it makes sense that no one would use aluminum for a locating dowel or a stud. sure seems like a regular threaded stud should be there. thanx for your help. steve

Re: Daytona Bell Housing

TY...thanx for the detailed explanation about the repair. But, here's a wrinkle....I don't think it's a stud, because it's aluminum! Thought I might be able to drill it out...nothing to lose, right? It's soft and fails the Physicis 102 magnet test. Could it be locating dowel pin? Again, can't tell f...

Re: Daytona Bell Housing

The more I looked at this, the more I thought it was broken off. Think i'll just squeeze a bunch of super glue in there. much faster that way. thanx s

Daytona Bell Housing

Daytona Bellhousing stud.JPG I was climbin' around under the car checkin' out yet another oil leak, when I noted what appears to be a broken stud, 3 o'clock as you look forward to the bell housing. Is there anything else this could be? The parts manual didn't help me, probably because exploded diag...

Re: Replace/Fix GTE Fan Clutch

Pardon my (again revealed) ignorance, but I thought that fan clutches were, by definition, not electric, but instead rely on changes in viscosity to either let the fan free wheel, or when hot, engage and drive the fan for better cooling. no? s

Re: Replace/Fix GTE Fan Clutch

Re: Intake manifold to booster vacuum hose ID

Michael, for both my Daytona and the GTC, I used Aeroquip FC647-AN 8. As you may know, the AN represents fractions of "16", so, an AN 8 is 8/16" or 1/2" or 13+mm. It will be a fight, but some grease + a heat gun got 'em on. I may have a few extra feet, so feel free to email me an...

Re: Daytona Cooling and Water Pump Rebuild

Living in Houston, even in "cold" weather, I've never fooled with the heat, so I don't even know if there's a "heater core". If there is, it would most likely be at the bulkhead on the passenger side. I'd start with the assumption that there might be two separate issues and attac...

Re: Daytona Cooling and Water Pump Rebuild

Drew, before I did the water pump, which is a mod't big project, especially after all of these years, there's a bunch of stuff I'd look at first. When you say "the oil side" are you speaking of the oil temp and the "coolant/water side" referring to the coolant temperature? Severa...

Re: Locking out the advance on Daytona distributor

Thanx again Tom (and everyone else) for your continued support. However, I think I got rooked: my "genuine Ferrari" screwdrivers from Harbor Freight weren't gold plated! s

Re: Locking out the advance on Daytona distributor

Thanx again, John. I'm clearly the beneficiary here, as I learned a great deal from everyone's thoughts and, if I can remember 1/2 of what i've been taught, i'll be way ahead of where i was. thanx again for your thoughts and, most importantly, support. s

Re: Locking out the advance on Daytona distributor

Quick, anybody gotta towel? I need a big one to wipe the egg off my face! The idea that this was a vacuum leak was essentially mine, but the thought that it was in the distributor was phone advice from the pro who came to help me this AM. When we started the car, it did just as advertised: pretty go...

Re: Locking out the advance on Daytona distributor

Thanx Bill, I actually replaced that hose, and checked the one way valve as well. A "smoke test" never revealed a leak there or anywhere. I appreciate your thoughts. s

Re: Tom's Doppelgänger?

ooh ooh (said like Gunther Toody, in "Car 54") Ed has a good eye! I had to borrow this from my wife in order to replicate Tom's iconic picture as closely as possible. (and promise not to mess it up!) s
