Re: Timing, distributor, etc..?? issues. Pulling my hair out!

Does it run well when you first fire it up then as the engine warms up, it starts breaking up? Have you checked the coil? Maybe it starts to over heat (the coil) and not able to supply the voltage to...

Re: 66 LTD Project

With a rear bar installed, it should make the car rotate more easily. 😊

Re: Can't get going past idle

Have you tried another ignition coil? Your symptoms are the same as when my cool went south before. Swapped in my back up coil and all was good. Might be the same in your case.

Re: Heat soak driving me to drink- heavily!

Totally believable to me. I burned up an MSD Blaster 2 coil by mistake-- running 12V to it, bypassing the resistor wire. Same symptoms as you. Would run fine when cold but once hot, it would stall...

Re: Lower radiator hose 1966 Galaxie 390 1.5" outlet

Actually, the kit came with adapters. Though, I only used the inner part and then for the outer, I used cut portions of the stock radiator hose.

Re: Factory AC?

Here's the bracket made for our Gal. It's not pretty but it works well. It's very strong and holds the compressor securely.

I sort of expected that. To make a profit, I'm sure they do just the basic maintenance that they can get away with. Tough to make money with that type of business. But it is a nice idea for sure.

Re: Disc Brakes and Sway Bar - Help!

The kit I have for my 65 is the Toms Classics which mount the calipers in the back. How bad is the clearance issue?

Re: GM A-BODY Lowering Springs for 65 Galaxie

The spring rates vary depending on suppliers. I would guess that big block springs would work. I'll do more research on this. If I do take the plunge I will report back. 👍

GM A-BODY Lowering Springs for 65 Galaxie

Hi guys,

Has anyone tried using GM A-BODY lowering springs for their 65-67 galaxies? Spec wise, they look to be very comparable.

Re: opinions needed bad or good

To fit the wheels you will need a 1" to 1.25" spacer at each wheel. Use hub centric spacers, 70.5 mm center bores.
