Re: How to remove turn signal lever

If it has the wiper controls on that lever too you don't have to remove it to tighten the tilt screws. You remove the steering wheel,lock plate and cancel cam, there is a screw holding a small lever on the turn switch that is actuated by the turn lever.

Re: Front end travel limiters

Drill and tap snubber hole for a 1/2 bolt. Use a long grade 8 bolt as the stop, thread the bolt threw the old snubber hole and use a nut to lock it in place after you adjust it. I did this on my UMI uppers works like a charm.

Re: chassis bracing notch question

If your switching to coil overs that's what you will be doing anyway when you install the bar for the shock mounts. If your going to notch it, do a max notch, your all ready in there, might as well go all the way. Just my .02

Re: Timing at idle ?

He said it had a "racing" cam in it. I agree, locked timing is the best way to go. I never use anything but locked out for hot rod or race car.

Re: Timing at idle ?

I would disconnect and plug the vacuum advance, Install a recurve kit in the distributor with the lightest springs. Set my total timing at 36deg, all in by 3k rpm let the idle timing fall where it may as long as it starts ok.
