Turn signal problem

Hello everyone.

Have this issue where left turn cancels too quickly, right works well.

I have attached videos showing that the cam puts pressure on the finger with the spring, but the finger doesn't spring, it just hits the cam and cancels.

Ideas?

Model identification

Hello everyone. I have attached the model plate. I still cannot figure out what exact model or car is and what engine package it is for that model. Essentially what I'm trying to figure out is if we have a normal base model fury, or a sport fury, or if our car is a mish mash with emblems and options...

Re: Vacuum advance chamber needed

I'm curious if a different distributor from another year will fit or can be interchanged with this engine.

Vacuum advance chamber needed

Hi guys, Our vacuum advance unit on our Autolite IBP-4000-D is not working. We have installed the Pertronix electronic kit and rebuilt the carburetor. Noticed the vacuum advance not holding vacuum as it should. Where the heck can I find the proper one for what I believe is counter clockwise rotation...

Re: 2bbl intake manifold gasket

Thanks! One issue I fear that is happening is probably due in part to the crossover area crud and heat issues and also the carb probably needing rebuilding. The car idles in neutral fine but wants to die often when stopped and in gear. Fuel.pump had need replaced as it was cracked and leaking, the r...

Re: 2bbl intake manifold gasket

Also looking to find or make a carburetor shim as I see that it helps to stop the fuel from vaporizing to quickly. Would like to install that when the carburetor gets rebuilt.
