I am so into this. i have my little list to take with me to the auto parts store.
pertronix ignitor and coil
spark plugs and wires
battery and ends
brake parts cleaner
sure i'll think of more. I am into fixing the headlights right now, baby steps but thrilling for me who has never worked on a car on my own before.
I took out the cotter pin on the actuator cable, could move it a little, so i got some oil on it and worked it back and forth about 2 inches. went to the console and the lever still didn't move so i poured some oil on it and went back to the front and worked on the cable some more.
Tried moving the buckets while the cable was unhooked and the driver's side moves a little and the passenger a little less.
went back to the lever and stuck the cover down over it, all whilt holding the instrument panel out of the way with one hand and got the lever to move all the way!! back and forth. Got it lined back up and put the cotter pin back in.
So now i'm going to spray the hell out of all the parts i can see from above and below with some wd40 and go from there. It was so exciting!! I did it, by myself, dave was inside watching the race. I would have kept going but the car isn't in the garage yet and it got dark
