Re: drive line noise

Wheels were tightened, but that didn't help. I'll check the balance of each. Bruce (working on the car) thinks it might be the driveshaft. He's at VIR so I cannot do any more until Monday. What bushing are you speaking of? I forgot to mention that my car has a high speed whine--something like straig...

Re: drive line noise

The noise is in tune with wheel speed. Put the clutch in and the noise is still there.
You feel it in the seat.

drive line noise

Looking for what could be causing a drive line noise at highway speeds. It doesn't be noticeable until you reach 60 mph or so. There might be some vibration as well.
Any ideas?

Re: is my clutch bad?

Thanks for the info. I took the easy way out and took it to my friendly mechanic as I cannot lift the car high enough to work underneath.

Re: is my clutch bad?

Where do you access the adjustment? Is it under the car?

Re: is my clutch bad?

Thanks Tom. I didn't know that the clutch was adjustable. I'll try that.

is my clutch bad?

Today going up a mild grade when I accelerated the clutch was slipping. A rapid start from standstill and the clutch didn't seem slip. Another hard accerlation in 4th on level road and it again the clutch is slipping. Is the bad news that I need a new clutch in my 1967 330 GT?

Re: lots of engine heat coming into car

Rebuilding the 2 shutoff valves did the trick. Now it's much cooler. They were letting hot water through even though closed.

Re: lots of engine heat coming into car

Whoops. 1967 330 GT 2+2 8767 George Davidson Do you think not having the pan on the bottom makes a difference? The control valves are stuck open, but the thermostat control is closed or off. Guess that is not enough? I have just started to look at insulation starting with Dynamat, but know there are...

lots of engine heat coming into car

No matter how I set the controls there's a lot of engine heat coming into the car. Where exactly does fresh air come from that is supposed to come into the front seat area? And does a fair amount come in if working properly? One thing that occurred to me is that might cause this is that my car does ...

how much noise

With my new hearing aids I'm discovering that my rear end makes a constant whining noise when under load. Let off the accelerator and the noise pretty much goes away. Reminds me of straight cut gears, but not as loud. So do rear ends in 330 GT's typically make some noise at highway speed?
