    I wont be using it unless I'm on a trip. Once I return home from this trip, the spare, floor jack, and tools go back in the garage. Nothing fancy needed, and hopefully it's just insurance, and wont...

    My chute bag has a chute, and is still set up to work. But since I recall how long it took me to pack the damn thing after installing it on my Austin, I've never even considered ever pulling it to...

    No, it doesn't matter which side. But for convenience of adjusting height, I'd put them behind the axle where they're easy to work on.

    I doubt anyone would look at this air cleaner and think the car had injection on it. It's not like those Garlits fake injection setup where they cover the carb to try to fool people. This is just a...

    Yes, but it's only good for very small punctures. Anything of any size and it wont seal like a plug does. And my tire store hates that stuff when I brought the car in for them to do a permanent fix!...

    Probably even easier to locate small rubber balls and stuff them in from the bottom side to plug off the holes. Then you could open them if you went to the drags.

    Probably not much chance of a flat on the slicks. The smooth tread seems to not pick up foreign objects like tread does. I can't begin to recall how many flats I've gotten on the rear tires of my...

    Those earlier heads should help make it run better. Aren't they smaller combustion chambers than the '72 460 heads also?
