    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

    My GS will need to be outside for a few 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.

    67 GS new bucket seat covers and trim paint question

    Hi all, I am finally getting around to replacing my black seat covers with new black covers and foam from year one. This is a bigger job than I thought. It ain’t hard but taking out those hog rings is tedious to say the least. 6 hours in and I am still on the first seat. This includes taking...

    Sick over my star wars air cleaner base

    I won’t go through all the gory details but I suspect my wife threw out the base to my star wars air cleaner. I can’t find it and she doesn’t remember and I can’t find it anywhere. My question; has anyone used a different base, say from an edelbrock air cleaner, to use with the star wars air...

    Has anyone been able to run a non oem carb with a star wars air cleaner? I am using a holley 650 cfm but it just sits too high and bumps the hood when I place the star wars air cleaner on. I can't seem to find an orig Rochester carb anywhere. NAPA used to have them but no more. I would even...

    67 GS400 Holley Carb Jetting

    I won't go into why I am running a Holley but it is what it is. I have a heavy gas smell all the time and at startup I have black smoke out of the exhaust actually staining my driveway with soot.

    Timing cover seal (non-rope)

    Just bought a new timing cover for my 67 GS 400. It came with a rubber seal in a metal housing, which I like better than the rope seal cause I can never get them installed right so they don't leak. Anyway, the new seal does not go into the new timing cover at all. I have a seal driver kit but...
