124 convo top hardware

I need the hardware that mounts the (convt. top) frame to the body.
The countersunk 8mm Phillips or Allen head bolts with their thick spacer washers.
Thanks, SB

Re: Further fodder re; OR, etc.

Let's just say that Oregon is still up in the air, but it would be the wagon.
Look close at the carb set up and you will find the X1/9 cam cover linkage!

Re: Brake Booster Delete(?)

I tried to set my wagon up for dual DCOEs. The front brakes were updated to size huge, with 4 piston calipers, they worked great! Then I removed the booster and drove with the 2 barrel weber on my 1608. There was no more stopping power, whatsoever. Even in 5mph commute traffic I was scared [expletiv...

Further fodder re; OR, etc.

Always something going on at Casa de Stuco, project wise. The blue '71 Spider is still in a state of suspended animation, buts that's OK. The 1800 engine has been taken out, and has gone thru a more aggressive and professional build up. That 1800 engine will be going into the 124 Wagon soon. Likewis...

Re: School of Cool Headgasket

It's about time that thing blew a head gasket.
Part of the life cycle of having fun!
Forget the retorque bit, yank the head.
You need a flat edge, thick head gasket, and new head bolts.

Re: BAT spider prices

BaT is a thriving, young, business venture, and more. Living out here in the SF Bay Area, their local, I've met some of the people. Overall, there is nothing like an auction! Fever pitch "gotta have it". But it does seem to work, you just need decent cars, or rusty scrap with a registration title. I...

Re: IDF Crankcase breather port leaking

My last IDF throttle shaft bearing air leak went very well. After you do the Rolex teardown you soon find out that one bearing comes out easily. If it has exposed ball bearings, you are due for an update repair. The other bearing does not come out. Simply send your carb bodies to Pierce Manifolds an...

Re: Need to borrow 4 DCOE idle jets

Ok, no email found, so I'll make this brief. You may be at a rich condition at idle because you have exceeded the tuning range of the idle circuit and are sucking unwanted (extra) fuel out of the transition circuit bores. The throttle plates must be completely shut, and the ignition timing needs to ...
