  1. Hi gang just wondering if anyone has changed their instrument panel lights from the circuit panel over to the socket type cluster.My lights on dash aren't working and seems light everything is out but the turn signals work and the high headlight works but as far as anything else it doesn't.Have changed the switch and still nothing so figures it's the circuit panel and hate to pull it all off if I can switch it over..
  2. Hey guys now that I have the dist issue's more or less solved just wondering with the hei what would be a decent plug gap?As of now I an running around .035 and wondering if it should be more with the hei.
  3. Hi guys just wonder if anyone would where I can find the relay power for the wiper motor.Not that mine is bad but want to up date it knowing it's old like everything else.Would like to find where I could get the wring harness also.It has the original pump for the wiper squirter but doesn't work and seems they bought one and mounted it to the wiper motor and spiced into those wires and looking closer seen where it has either a power resister or relay and they plug into that and would like to get a new one.
  4. I thought I could put the wiring were ever I needed as long as I kept the firing rotation in order.And was hoping that I could by just lifting the dist a little but might be more trouble then just taking it out doing it that way.Like to just move my advance more towards the engine and the dial it in which should give me more room.
  5. Hope this helps..as you can how close the advance is to the fire wall just hoping to be able to slightly lift the dist and turn advance closer to engine. And the wiring in a better order as you can see in pic 1 turnning the dist also turned the wiring.
  6. Ok guys two more questions and I'll be out of your hair..Anyway got my timing set and sounds pretty after it has settled in.Now my questions are can I move my wiring around to kind of clean it some but staying in the correct firing order.And my Second question is can I move my vacuum advice position with out having to to actually lift the dist out or can I lift just enough to move it.The reason I am asking that is that the advance is close to firewall and with the HEI with coil inside the wiring is very close to the carb.
  7. Yes that was the first thing I did was to re mark it to the new timing line.Going to time it this afternoon since here in cleveland it is raining.Was actually how fast it started up wasn't perfect but sound pretty good..Thanks for all the tips..
  8. Well finally some good news..Went and found my TDC again and didn't pay attention to timing marks it didn't start but popped a lot more then before then turned the dist 180 with the advance a little more towards the firewall and tried starting and moved it a little more and poof she fired right up.Battery is drained some who ever had it before had a wall mart type in it so charging it and will fire it back up and set the timing in the morning ..
  9. Thought I could kept looking and wondering why not the down fall would be a little hose
  10. Yes lined it up first but actually when I used the whistle at the loudest for tdc it was at the lower end of 0 on the tab never knew it might have two will look in the morning ok away from #1 should take me to #8 had the advance pointing around the fender to firewall so that would explain a lot.yes getting spark and is I guesscan after market got it from summit and told it would fit the car coil is inside so nothing fancy just an up grade Forgot to say the vacume is around 5 O'clock position so will have to change that but will tight unless the whole unit is moved from passenger side to drivers but was told not to do that
  11. Hi was thinking about that when I had a 57 Chevy a friend found TDC and never looked at the timing mark hexsaud the same thing the age and wear he said find it drop the dist at #1 and go from there think I have been making myself crazy try to get tdc marks and throwing it out of wack so in the morning will get it and not look at the timing marks
  12. Well after I work up went out to try and fire it up and nothing.With the advance all the way towards the block actually just about hitting it started to pop a little from the exhaust.As I slowly moved towards the firewall got nothing but could smell gas.Had TDC and pointed the rotor towards #1 and the timing mark just about at 0.My number plug is at around 1 o'clock as the diagram shows.Have the firing order going counter clock wise.The only thing left to try is that it is 180 off there doesn't seem to be anything else I can do.
  13. Pretty I have TDC a few yrs ago I bought this whistle that screws into #1 plug and when you hear the loud noise you should be there and thats what I did.And my timing mark is between 0 and 1 and figure that should get me close and set my dist down with rotor pointing at the #1 plug .The only thing I did before I think was having the vacuum advance more towards the first wall then towards the carb. And went by the diagram on the web with #1 plug at around 1 o'clock and going in counter clock wise 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 .I haven't tried it yet just getting ready to..
