"New Rebuilt Duralast 7122 55 amp Alternators - $50
I have a couple of new rebuilt AutoZone sourced Duralast DL7122 55 amp direct replacement alternators for $50 each. That is $20 less than current price without core. (They are $55 with core).…"
"The way i'd do it is just have your machinist buddy chuck the old rivet in a collet, drill a hole all the way through the center, and thread the whole length of the rivet. This will give you plenty of thread to try out different…"
"Voltage at cold start? Hot Start? Alternator Tested? Condition? This is why I tend not to jump in on your threads. I ask specific questions and never get an answer. If alternator is not charging the battery, the battery will run down to a…"
"I'm really stumped on where to tap the threads for the 4-40 screw and whether to try to do it in a way that holds the original arrangement with a rectangular clip that holds the rivet head on and provides tension between the halves. Has anybody…"
"Jason, yes i can understand the confusion.
Replaced Rebuilt starter and solenoid from USAPARTS back in January.
i have placed a reflective blanket over both as of yesterday, in hopes of heat determent.

"AS far as the harmonic balancer installation bolt the shop manual recommends using the 59 to 62 front harmonic balancer bolt and washer to install the 63 & 64 harmonic balancers. The problem is most people do not have those…"
"Kim, I looked up the site for my starter, it is: qualitypowerauto.com . The starter bolts up just like the original on my 63. The cost was 250.00. Just to be clear, I do suggest going through the checklist of items others have discussed. I am…"
"Noted. I want the machine shop guy to drill out the rivet and tap the old rivet head (large side) for the screw that will replace it. I intend to do the re-surfacing. The valve on the power piston side looks real good and has lubricant in it. I…"
"I cant be sure but on I think I had a spring washer (not a lock washer) that kept tension on the valve halves. I wouldn't get to fancy with the machine shop resurfacing. A piece of flat glass and 400 grit wet sandpaper and water and it will be…"

I haven't spent much time on my old cars this summer. My latest project has been a gazebo on the new island. I'll be ready Wednesday to start putting on shingles. Tomorrow its facia and some more…Continue
I removed both 7 nipple vacuum valves and called my buddy who owns a machine shop. Tomorrow we'll re-surface the valve faces and then I'll reinstall them. HOWEVER, the one that comes out easily and comes apart with no rivet is on the Power module side. It installs on one side with a small bolt, and on the other it is held on by a clip, WHICH IS MISSING ON MY CAR. I am going to assume it is the same clip that is used on the Control Module side. Anybody got one? Happy…
So, I've put my 7 vacuum valve from the control head side to the test, and it failed. I looked at the instructions for re-conditioning it and unless I am missing something, the instructions are missing something (about how to take off the clip that provides the tension that holds the two pieces together).
In any case, I can't do this particular repair so I am looking for a new valve (not likely), or a good re-conditioned one, or someone who has done this before and would do mine for…
