    Hmm well I'm actually replacing my alternator next week because it's making some noise, is probably 20 years old, and only making 12.4V when the engine is hot and fans and headlights are running.

    I will be back in there next week. I replaced my binnacle (future post coming on that!) and have it just set in and only the back studs are attached to the dash while I wait for a new plexi lens for...

    Right. My problem before was the temp kept rising up to nearly 220F and wasn't falling even if I was driving at 55 MPH. If I can drive it for 30 minutes and the temp stays closer to 160F like it...

    Thanks everyone. I've been busy lately but had a bit of time to keep working on this overheating (?) problem last night. I have now installed a ball valve in the thermostat self-bleeder line so I...

    Update on my jumpy tach needle -

    1) Confirmed the needle on my Actron external tach is not jumping when the dash gauge jumps, so it's not the coil
    2) Replaced the coil anyway with a blue OEM...

    Oops, missed this question. Well the original dress wall doesn't have much space at all between the underbody/insulation and the dress wall. Maybe 1 cm. My new wall creates more space between the...

    I replaced the Accel Super Stock coil with a new Bosch blue coil considering the fact that I accidentally ran the Super Stock backwards for so long (and surprisingly it ran fine) but also because...

    How do you hook up an external tachometer? I've never attempted such a thing. I see I can get a Bosch tach on Amazon for like $33.99.

    I'm going to get a new OEM ignition coil and see how that goes first. It could definitely be the coil because this spring I realized it was hooked up backwards (!!!) but interesting to report I never...

    Thanks guys. It was also suggested a loose PCB or the screw that holds it on. I'll actually be pulling my binnacle off perhaps next weekend for replacement so I'll check that.

    I have an older version of the Toby kit that doesn't have a ball valve so it's always bleeding off a portion to the overflow tank.

    Maybe I'll order a new thermostat and gasket as well as do...

    I forgot to mention one thing. Not sure if this is relevant. But I had to have the radiator cap off of the expansion tank so that I could use the combustion gas tester. I started the car cold with...

    [Electrical] Tachometer needle jumps sometimes - cause?

    I have noticed sometimes that my tach needle generally works smooth and steady but periodically it will jump up for a moment like it has a seizure or the throttle was barely blipped, and then it is...

    Well here is what I learned today.

    1) Water pump belt is sufficiently tight
    2) Bought a cooling system pressure tester pump and tested two caps - a new 15 PSI made in England cap from DMCMW, and...

    So I ended up buying a pressure tester at NAPA, part # 700-3025. It's working for both radiator caps, and I had no trouble pumping up my SS header bottle to 15 psi. No leaks and still 15 psi after 20...

    Thanks - I'm going to buy a kit and you're right, with so many connections it would be wise to have my own so I can test annually anyway.

    Will report back soon....

    [Engine] Radiator cap OEM style vs aftermarket

    Working on my engine temperature issue today and I rented a cooling system pressure tester. I first tried to test my new DMCMW radiator cap (Made in England, 15 PSI). I could not get any pressure...

    Not a bad idea. I did a compression test last year just for the heck of it (I have a gauge) and all six cylinders were between 149 and 153 PSI so I have a good reference. I also rented a cooling...

    Thinking a bit more about this. Due to this history and possibility of an overheat, I want to rule out head gasket leaks completely. Would these two tests be sufficient to be sure the head gaskets...

    I did not replace the otterstat. The fans are coming on around 175F which is, I think, the same range they always have. In the past, the fans would come on and cool until the needle dropped down to...
