    Bulb Sockets

    Hi guys. Replacing the tail light bulbs, 3 of the 4 brake bulbs came out glass only. Having a heck of a time getting the metal backed out; which tool is best or another idea?

    Dragging brakes

    It is. I noticed when I put it on that some kind of nut is on the end of the rod; I assume it can be turned.

    Dragging brakes

    Hey guys. Last fall I put on a new master cylinder on the 70 Newport. It’d been converted to front disc brakes before I got the car, so I knew about the different sized resovoirs. Things have been fine until my last 2 drives; it’s only when I back into the garage that there’s a dragging problem...

    Just last night I bought a passenger side HP manifold from Tony’s Parts; did not know they were prone to cracking.

    Vacuum Advance

    I shouldn’t have said stronger. The engine responds quicker & really likes to reach rpm faster. At the cost of I don’t know what.

    Hello again. Refresher on vacuum advance? My car runs stronger with it disconnected, but I don’t want to hurt anything.

    When bench bleeding my new one, I notice that the piston stroke is quite short, like a bit less than an inch; normal?

    Oil Leak

    Oh, yummy.. crow. Yeah, ok. So that oil under the car was caused by leaving the drain pan underneath & it got kicked, I now remember. Getting older comes with some mental lapses at times. Alright, on to bleeding the master, installing & bleeding the system.

    Oil Leak

    That sounds like what I have, small magnet sticking out at the tip. Scared me the 1st time I used it & saw a shaving on it; because I cross threaded. I’m sure it was metal from the pan.

    Oil Leak

    Or I’ll just unscrew the plug & let some out. About that drain plug, it’s a replacement. AND I think it might be cross threading; maybe the seal isn’t there. Going early before work tomorrow to let it idle & watch.

    Oil Leak

    Hi guys. I overfilled last time I changed the oil by about a quart. Didn’t notice until yesterday that there’s some under the car. It’s off the road while I fix the brakes, but I still start it every week & let it idle/small revs. Is it bad (obviously) to run it with a quart over?

    Disc Brake Master Cylinder On 70 Newport

    So I have to get a new one; no experience with brakes. Is it just a matter of unbolting, unscrewing lines & reversing the process? And where are the bleeding valves on the wheel? Thank you for any advice.

    Hub Cap Choice

    I’m happy to report that my car is MUCH more powerful than a 300H; hence the rwl and topic. And again, I know we all have our opinions about wheel/tire combos. But I just love getting you guys going. ✌️
