Thinking of doing the timing chain on a 64 and I did a search on the message board without to much success as to previous posts. I would assume that there are many words of wisdom that should be followed by the many individuals (smarter and more experienced than I) that have done this before. Questions such as: Should I, as a matter of course, just replace the gears (timing chain set) since they are nylon teeth.... All info is greatly appreciated and Thank you in advance.
This may be more of a 60s problem but I have issues with the exhaust system getting pretty banged up over bumps with two adults sitting in the rear. All is fine without rear passengers. The car is running new (Autozone) shocks all around and P235/75 tires. The exhaust system is 2 years old and the muffler seems to take the majority of the abuse. Is there a placement issue or does the car really need an air shock setup in the rear? Thanks ahead of time.
