    Lars, my Qjet inlet threads are stripped...completely gone. I was looking online and there are several products that either vreate new threads or use o-rings to seal the inlet. Do these "quick-fixes" work? What do you recommend? Thanks in advance. I can send pictures if needed.

    Hello Lars,

    I came across a thread that stated you have reliable instructions on setting timing; initial and more importantly, total. Is it possible you could email them to me?

    I rebuilt my 400 (67 GTO) which is currently on a run stand and runs pretty good but much too hot. I shut it down when it hits 220. I have a quality aluminum radiator from Ames, a 7 blade fan with new clutch, shroud, upgraded to an 11 bolt timing cover with a Flow Kooler pump (divider plate is perfect) and this engine still gets too hot. I’m using the MSD Ready-To-Run distributor (part 8528) and I don’t completely understand how to set “total timing”. Also, I was lucky enough to acquire an authentic Quadrajet ($750) from Cliff Ruggles. He said he tuned the carb for my engine before it was shipped, so I don’t think it’s running too lean.

    Thank you
    Jim Barrett

    Wow, judging from the msg's here, you are the go-to guy for tech! Mine is a little simpler, I hope. A member here wanted to convert his '67 four piston caliper to a '69 or later. You suggested having his four piston calipers re-sleeved in stainless for rebuilding, having one of the 'Vette sources doing the sleeving. Would you email the name and contact info of the guy you use for caliper re-sleeving? I have a '68 GTO with the four piston which is showing it's age. Thanks in advance for your help! Email is: Holley4778@aol.com

    If you recall I started a thread awhile back in regards to whether to use Points or HEI Ignition in the 65 GTO I am restoring. At that time you offered to set up my distributor for me on your machine. I was considering having this done and wanted to know how much it would cost.
    Thank You

    Hello Lars, thank you for posting the great tech article info. I have always had trouble finding TDC on my 71 Lemans and I have a new distributor to install. Would you please send me the articles How to find top dead center and How to install a distributor? I am hoping to get some tips on the distributor instal from you. I have only done it once and it was with help from a Haynes manual. Thanks, John . My email is pontibeast@gmail.com
