    How much rear main seal oil loss is considered normal for our cars?

    I am aware of this, probably not a good idea to try a rope seal on a smooth crank?!

    How much rear main seal oil loss is considered normal for our cars?

    What about the thing to only use a rope seal if the crank has the "knurls"? Or can I use it on a smooth crank as well? Think of trying the rope seal, had no luck with the 2-piece Viton and no luck with the fastfish seal. I have a smooth crank.

    Tachometer Jumping

    I absolutely agree with you. I prefer the stock look without add-on gauges too. My last option will be an aftermarket tach. The idea with the diode sounds good, gonna try this. Will let you know

    Tachometer Jumping

    Tach signal is coming from the MSD. Seems like there's no real solution: Either have a factorey OE tach and use the MSD tach adapter which will result in weird inaccurate rpm readings. Or have the reproduced tach that can handle the MSD signal but you don't know before if your particular rep...

    Tachometer Jumping

    Got this answer from the Holley/MSD tech support: "We have found some inconsistencies with the OER type tachs, they seem to be really sensitive to the signal. We've seen where they operate normally, some do not function at all, and others that seem to work as you stated. Sometimes the 8920 tach...

    Tachometer Jumping

    Hi all, I have a 68 standard gauge dash with a tachometer. Full electronic MSD ignition setup. Hooked up the tach per MSD instructions. The tach seems like a reproduction (maybe OER). I can spot the green printed circuit board. So it should NOT need a tach adapter at all. Without it shows a...

    The Official Rear Main Seal replacement thread

    I did all the measuring and "mods" to my factory retainer (advised in this thread and from other forums), double checked clearances... Really don't know what I can do here else. It just seems like either you are lucky and/or lucky and get the right seal too. @Doorkicker I was specifically...

    The Official Rear Main Seal replacement thread

    I am sick of it..Viton seals: leak, fastfish one piece: leak. Used the factory retainer. Any successful attempt on installing a rope seal with engine in the car? I know there's a video on youtube doing one with crank on an engine stand..but in car another story.

    727 question - won't start in park

    This is great news! I just looked up and when I bought the car it had the 1 prong NSS installed, transmission is a '69. So I should go for the 3 prong NSS. Will try that!

    727 question - won't start in park

    @dvw I need to clarify: My engine does not crank in P, that's the problem. #1 There's no slop in the linkage, everything is checked and all parts are new. #2 As stated before it is a column shift, no floor console brackets to hit. #3 The rooster comb is the exact same as before. It has no cracks...

    727 question - won't start in park

    Dug this out. I have the same problem. Column shift, fully restored car (all bushings are new), electric new, I even changed the NSS switch (both were fine). I have a 1-prong NSS. I have adjusted the linkage several times like instructed in the FSM. On the first start it fires straight up in...

    I have the middle rooster and switch! It is always working when I re-adjust the linkage. Today went for a ride, first start in P no problem. Starting again after a few accelerations, starts only in N again
