Re: Intake manifold to booster vacuum hose ID

I used 15mm reinforced cloth covered wire hose ordered from BelMetric Automotive (belmetric.com) on my Daytona last year to redo the brake vacuum hoses and it fit perfectly. If its too small its hard to persuade the wire reinforced material. Good Luck. Drew

Re: Question about Tom's blog

I never knew that was there either. I must admit every Monday anxiously awaiting what tid-bit is going to be next, :)

My drop down is blank as well. Drew

Re: Daytona Cooling and Water Pump Rebuild

Reporting back. The heater cores are plugged. Can pass compressed air through them but very little coolant. Doing a power flush over a couple of days to the entire system. If that does not get it then pop the fender well and take out the heater cores for a pro to clean. The temperature gauge appears...

Re: Daytona Cooling and Water Pump Rebuild

I think checking the radiator, as suggested, is a good first step. I'll report back. Thanks. Drew

Daytona Cooling and Water Pump Rebuild

I've been noticing my coolant temperature getting warmer lately. Its 15 - 18 deg F over my oil temp. Definitely running hotter on the coolant side - not the oil side. I replaced the coolant and changed the thermostat but no to little improvement. About the same time I am having trouble getting heat ...

Re: F40 Starter Removal

Issue turned out to be a 9 year old battery. After cleaning all the contacts for the heck of it appears it would be easy to drop starter. Looks like only one if the turbo oil lines need to come off. No issue with headers.

Re: F40 Starter Removal

Thanks Tom, The battery is 10 years old and I have a new one coming in tomorrow. Got a new starter relay as well. Just not that expensive to replace this stuff. I'm going put the car up and clean the ground and starter connections this weekend. Go from there. Just wanted to know how much of a fight ...

F40 Starter Removal

Realize this is a vintage site but will all the knowledgeable people here thought someone might have done this before. The starter (starter solenoid actually )on my F40 is starting to act up. It doesn't look like that hard to do unless you have to pull the headers and associated plumbing ot remove i...

Daytona Gear Oil

Just changed the gear oil in my Daytona after 3 years. Had Redline NS 75/90 with 4oz GM limited slip additive. The car shifted well but the differential clutch packs chattered quite a bit. On some research I saw Dyke had used Mobil 1 LS with the a limited slip additive. This is what I tried this tim...

Re: leather steering wheel restoration

I used Alan Gun (the last name may be incorrect) in 2011 for a Daytona wheel. He took quite a while but I was pleased with the result.

Re: Daytona Header Clean UP

Thanks guys. After doing some additional research (looking at the parts manual) which I should have done before, it shows the headers that I have with the sample tubes. I am told that all Euro Daytona's had this system after 72 and 73 thanks to EPA. When the Euro Daytona's came to the states to be f...

Daytona Header Clean UP

I have the headers out of my Daytona to rebuild the starter. My Daytona is a euro car and somewhere along the line it was federalized to some extent by drilling into each exhaust header (6 per side) and welding on air injection ports. They are not used and look ugly. Was wondering how difficult it w...

512BB No Spark

Hi folks, Need a little help troubleshooting a 512BB. Its stock and runs a Marelli AEC 104 BK Digiplex, Marelli BAE 202 B coil and has inductive pickup. I have verified no spark. I have contact from the end of the coil cord that goes to the coil to the distributor carbon tip. The Digiplex is still m...
