The tires on the car look great but they are 30 years old and rock-hard. I was going to try and get another year or two out of them but I started to see cord though the rubber. So I ordered new Coker Classic radials. Wide white walls of course. That and new tubes make these the most expensive tires I have ever bought. I took them to Precision Alignment and Tire who as usual did a great job installing them.
I have been setting the timing to factory settings but it seemed to idle badly and sometimes it backfires into the exhaust a little on deceleration. I decided to advance the timing a little and see if that helps. I bumped the timing up about 3-5 degrees. After adjusting the idle mixture the car seems to pull stronger and run better with no sign of abnormal combustion. I might try to push it up a few more degrees and see what happens.
A freeze plug popped out. So I got to fix it again.
I did some spring maintenance and installed new pedal seals. The details are here.
Or at least I hope it is. See the details here.
This site has been static HTML since I started it. At the time I wanted to do more HTML and the hosting I was using did not have any worthwhile content management. But dinking with the pages is not as much fun any more and WordPress is really easy to use. So I created this WordPress site and migrated the old content. Now people can comment and I can quickly add posts and pages.
Major projects on the car will be pages on the left-hand menu. Quick updates and random thoughts will be posts like this one. Enjoy!
