Where does the PCV hose connect?

Those water hoses are too sharp! Do you have a source link?

I have found a 1950s Chev. horn, wondering if they can be rebuilt and was it difficult using a 6 volt horn on a 12 volt system?

Sorry for all the questions and appreciate your help.

Thanks and no probs JS. Don’t be surprised no more!

So... for the air cleaner I got one of these

http://www.vpw.com.au/Category/Index/621397?Brand=All

and cut the outer lip off. You’ll find one easy over there. Cut the dome out of the oem cleaner leaving about a 5/16” lip so the element still seats. Lined up on carb and marked. Attached with a ring of pop rivets and some gasket maker (sensor safe) to seal. Will grab some pics for you. Originally did for my Weber 38 with a 5 1/8 adapter as the oem style adapter was too high for the bonnet on the Clifford intake.

The pcv valve hose runs to the Moroso catch can then to the back of the Fitech EFI which has 2 x 3/8 manifold vac ports. The other is for brake booster. Purge line from evap canister tees into pcv hose before port. The rear pcv hose runs to air cleaner as per oem.

Heater hoses are this

https://www.summitracing.com/parts/spe-39606/

And the radiator hoses are regular with some stainless braid to fit.

These Gates shrink clamps, various sizes, instead of hose clamps to hold the braid easily and neatly on all hoses. Rock solid so far.

https://www.rockauto.com/en/parts/ga...+clamp,1001596

And these to shape the heater hose bends

https://www.rockauto.com/en/tools/ho...g+coil,1001655

The horn I picked up cheap on eBay long ago and don’t know anything about the voltage. Might be 6v or might be 12v. It works for sure. Only markings on it are SPARTON made in USA and Lo. The dome should come off to adjust and inspect and can be serviced I imagine. Love to find a Hi one and pair them.

Hope that’s all helpful in some way.

whollsee,

I very appreciate you taking the time to respond in such detail. Will be checking out all of these.

On another note, I had painted my engine AMC blue, but looking at yours I am planning to
go back to black. It was the factory engine color for my 1985.

Cheers to you and thanks again,

JS

Ha. Snap! Mine is actually an AMC greenish Pontiac blueish colour but hard to see in the pics and when I posted the images I thought ďhmmm....I should have gone OEM black as per Ď82Ē I do like being able to see potential oil leaks though. Black next refurb for sure - especially with the powder coated intake.

Repaired some damaged resistors on some marine speaker crossovers. I upgraded the resistors with high end ones to achieve a better over-all sound.
I picked up some of those pods that you mount at base of roll bar for $30 for the pair so I decided to over-haul the speakers before install. They came out nice!

I was given a pair of those horns years ago. They are pretty loud!



But....when I press the horn switch, the volt meter almost bottoms out! ....

Cleaned all surfaces to do my oil pan and rear main seal again. Except I cant see if there's still rtv in the groove in the block that goes around the top of the crankshaft. Need something safe to use that will dissolve it. Right now I'm using a bore/tube brush .

Pulled the engine to replace the clutch. After removing the bolts from below I confirmed that this the better option. Thunderation I hate working laying on my back under the Jeep. Pick up the new clutch set in the morning and will do some pressure washing to get rid of the crud.

Grenaded my 30 spline outer. Darn near split it down the middle it twisted so far. Got spare parts to get it back together for now, while I shop for an upgrade to chromos.

Good job



East Coast Gear Supply has a pretty good deal on 35spl chromo and drive flange package. They have held up good to the 42's in the '6 after I sploded my 30 spline outers.
