    Hi Geeteeoguy, my name is Bill & my moniker is Sully. At your convenience, would you call me at 859 652 6726. I'm about to insulate my floor pan with the material from Loews. Question is about the thin rubber gasket that is running wires from inner firewall to the trunk. Should a gasket be present on psgr side of car? You may text if you like. Thanks a bunch, you are one of the "go to guys". Have a great weekend & thanks again.

    Thanks for the kind words about the car...didn't want to hijack the guys thread.
    I'm excited about her....picked her up from a friend that got her at an auction 3 years ago and he's done nothing with it. It's been in a climate controlled garage and the 8 miles I drove her home is the most she's seen in the last few years.

    Len, the stuff was an asbestos-type cloth sleeve that a friend had. He got if from a tractor supply house. AMES performance also might have it. You could also use Kevlar, etc. You are correct in that you must keep those wires from getting hot, melting, and then shorting out!!! Good luck.........

    Hello Jeff, I recall reading a post a while back regarding the tube that the solenoid and battery wires are routed through the exhaust manifold on a 65. I believe it was you that mentioned and I am going from memory that you were able to pick up a liner that worked to keep the wires from melting. Not sure if this was your post, if yes can you give more detail on where you were able to source and what the material was called. Thanks Len

    Hello,

    I am new to this site and am not a computer person at all. I see that you are knowledgable about the 389 tri-powers. I have just had a 1966 tri-power rebuilt,
    engine and carbs. all to stock specs, motor was honed and bored to 30 over.
    I am having trouble getting the motor to idle. I messed with the timing a bit today and have her idling but very rough. The mechanic that I used to assemble the motor after machining told me not to worry about hooking up the vacuum advance on the distributor to the back of the center carb, just to cap off the distributor. I am using that port atthe back of the center carb for the modulator to the tranny, 350 stage 2 350 built by Monster Trans & performance. Can you tell me what pieces I seem to be missing in this puzzle. Is it necssary to have the vacuum to the distributor hooked up to the back of the center carb. Any and all help would make my Christmas. Thanks, MIKE

    185-210 is right where you want to be. 193 is perfect. Doubtful the plate would flex. I've never heard of it, and I've driven these cars for about 35 years now. If it is getting hotter in traffic or stopped and running cooler down the open road, that means your radiator and cooling system is fine, but you need more airflow at idle, which means a better or bigger fan or a fan shroud. Still, 193 is not an issue at all.

    In the last few days we talked about the plate clearance and I bent with cresent to about 1\8 thought it was going to work went to 183 thermo opened droped to 170 then back to 175 for 15 min then started creeping up to 193 again the metal seem thin to me and easlly bent is possible for pressure to move them away. I tried again tonight and drove abou 20 miles and stayed about 185 then when stoped back to 193 I did check the timing and carb seems right on.
