Re: Wheeler Dealers 21.1

I know I speak for all of us when I say I was thankful they threw in a "Fix It Again Tony" or two.

Putting the engine on a stand

I picked up a spare 1800 I plan to rebuild in my basement this winter. A friend lent me an engine stand but he didn't have bolts for it, so I picked up a metric engine stand bolt kit from Summit Racing. When I tried to mount the plate to the back of the engine, I found that the bolts won't fit into ...

Re: Moron Appreciation Day

You need one of these. It isn't just a lighted camera you can stick in there ... it also has a hook or magnet attachment. I've used this a couple of times and it works great.

Replacing the coil

My brother-in-law took umbrage at the dirty appearance of the '74s engine bay at a picnic yesterday, so he got out some degreaser and a hose and went to town. Man alive, that stuff did an amazing job and it's probably something I should have done a long time ago. But when he was done and everything ...

Re: Rear end noise

The 4.1:1 differentials were used on the 124 Coupes. The one I have is from a 71 or 72 Coupe. It's I nice compromise between the 4.3:1 and 3.9:1 rear ends. When I ran it in my 78, I found it actually made my Speedometer much more accurate. I have since gone to a new 3.9:1 differential, but have cou...

Jody, If you are interested, I have a used 4.3:1 and a hard to find 4.1:1 differential that would bolt into your 74. I'm not too far away in the Akron area.
Regards
I might be. What would I have now? The service manual I have lists a 4.3:1 but AutoRicambi lists a 3.9:1.

Re: Rear end noise

I would treat this as a cooperative winter project between your mechanic and Jon Logan and Midwest 124. Great idea. I'm traveling out to see Matt at Midwest-Bayless next weekend so maybe I'll reach out to Jon to see what he might have available on the shelf and fall back to this plan if he's out of...

Rear end noise

The ‘74 has developed a ticking sound that is coming from the diff. You hear it as you roll to a stop. My mechanic put the car on the lift and found that there is play in the diff when the driveshaft turns as well. At speed, this ticking becomes a growl. I’m not familiar with what’s in the different...
