"Thanks Russ. I’ve neglected to reinstall the shim when I put the manifold and carb back on, probably explains why the idle is very up and down."

"Quick question, should there be gasket cement (sealant) on both sides of the shim?"

"Haha, thanks Anders. If I knew all this earlier I would have fixed it whilst the engine was still apart. But I got the engine back from the machine shop all re-assembled except for the dipstick tube, which the mechanic had broken while trying to…"

"“Well there’s ya problem!”  I removed the sump today, the stick was nowhere near where it should have been. Bent the tube by levering it with a flathead screwdriver, now the dipstick slides in and out easily. Now I just need…"

"No I don’t think it’s the tube that hits, because I can take the dipstick out and run the motor no worries. But if I put the dipstick back in, it rattles like a bastard and puts a noticeable bend in the stick."

"Problem was I received the engine back from the builder without the tube installed. I bought a new tube off the shelf and installed it. I think I may have to take the oil pan off and bend the tube. It's the same dipstick that was in the motor…"

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 4 Comments

Hi.

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?

Thanks

Norm
