    Really in trouble on my GS400 rear

    I returned the gears to JD Race and he refunded my money except the shipping. Totally fair I suppose but the carrier was not correct. I had two different people tell me it was a chevy carrier. I believe in the end he did end up finding the right carrier with 7/16 threads but I had already moved...

    Really in trouble on my GS400 rear

    Quick Update: Contacted a rear end specialist and received a carrier with spider gears in it and a rebuild kit. Gave it to my builder and he stated it was a chevy carrier and not a BOP. Chevy screw holes were 3/8 and BOP are 7/16. My blown BOP was 7/16 so not a match. The rear end specialist...

    67 GS 400 trunk torsion rods install

    BTW, I really appreciate all the help I receive on these forums. I attempted to replace the torsion rods myself but just got scared of the torque necessary to get them into place so I chose to take them to a body shop. Took them two attempts but it is right now. All information I received from...

    Really in trouble on my GS400 rear

    Jim at JD Race hooked me up with a carrier and spider gears. Should be in the mail today or tomorrow. I sent him pics and he noticed another problem that I didn’t and set me up there too. He also didn’t gouge me on the price. Thanks all for your input. It is a struggle for me to keep this car...

    Really in trouble on my GS400 rear

    Hi Bob, That is a $400 to $800 option. I did find a Yukon unit that with bearings and seals would be around $600. This is my last resort if I can’t find the spider gears. I don’t race the car and won’t know the difference between an OPEN diff vs. a POSI. If you are referring to just the POSI...

    UPDATE. Went back to the shop and they corrected the problem. Seems the trunk hinge was hitting on the torsion rod on the left side. Now, on to the next issue.

    67 GS Power steering gearbox Leak

    Yes I have cleaned it, ran the car and turned the steering wheel (wife in the car) while I was under searching for the leak. Seems like when the car sits after driving, it leaks at some point through the night. I seem to be adding 3 to 4 oz of fluid every 50 miles. I am sure it is not leaking...

    67 GS Power steering gearbox Leak

    At least I think the leak is from the gearbox. Can I use a dye in the PS Reservoir to determine where the leak is? Don’t want to mess anything up with the dye. Also, a friend mentioned I should just replace it. Thoughts on a rockauto rebuilt replacement. Thanks

    Information gathering on EFI

    Thanks Bob I appreciate the input which is exactly what I am requesting. I only recently got my mpg up to 13 per gallon from 8 mpg by replacing a holley carb with a quadrajet. I could never get that holley tuned right. If you are right about a 20% gain in efficiency, and I think you are, I...

    Information gathering on EFI

    Don’t shoot me for moving off original. Just trying to get some info for adding something like a Holley Sniper EFI to my 67 GS 400. I believe the car will run better and have better gas milage. I drive my car around 1000 per year. My questions are 1- has anyone run into problems adding...

    My GS will need to be outside for a few weeks.......car cover question

    My car is always garaged with a dust cover that works. I find that I will need to store my car outside for awhile and really need a recommendation on a 100% waterproof car cover. Once I finish with this usage I will use the cover on a different car so I would like a cover that can handle snow...
