Anyone have a recommendation for hearing protection--the earmuff type? I do not like the ear plugs and would like to get muffs for our group.

What have you found that works well?

That's exactly what I was referring to. The car is miserable to drive if there is too much throttle pressure. Sometimes, there is a problem with the throttle sticking just off idle (about 12-1500...

I've never seen a throttle spring break on a Tri-Power. Too much spring tension makes these setups virtually impossible to drive without the herky-jerky throttle problem. Rochester 2G carbs all have...

Blue smoke may be residual oil in the exhaust system if you've recently done engine work. It takes quite a lot of running time to eliminate that.

I'm not a fan of painted carbs. I have all my restored carbs dichromated, both Tri-Power and Q-Jets. The pictures show the result.

We switched to a 9" booster, which fits fine. We may have to remove the wiper motor to remove the driver's side valve cover. We're going to wait and see if there is enough vacuum for the brakes.

Would be great if someone would take this on. There is demand, not only from '64 owners of every Pontiac body, but other years as well. Many feel this was the best wheel Pontiac made, me included.

The amperage draw of LED vs. any other bulb is tiny. Why would the alternator type be an issue. Either type of alternator adjusts output to match the load. The one-wire probably does a better job of...
