"I was trying to understand what a meta air vent was. When searching it came up with "metal air vent" I assume that's what you meant? If so, yeah, that's what it looks like. There is a white plastic lens above it too."

Mine is a meta air vent like grating, which just does not look right for a map light.

Upgrades for the Coupe de Ville

Posted by Kurt on December 24, 2021 at 6:00pm 4 Comments

center bolt size for crankshaft pulley

Posted by Dan Norris on December 6, 2021 at 3:13pm 2 Comments

I need to pull my distributor, and still have the cork in the end of the crankshaft. What is the bolt size needed to thread a bolt in there to be able to turn the motor over with a pull handle and socket to get it to TDC exactly before I pull the distributor out?
