    2F rebuild or adjustment - help

    I get some smoke from time to time. Usually at start up after I have been driving for a while, when it's warmed up. Like today after stopping for lunch. Not bad but some. I figure smoke meant a rebuild might be needed. The PO said it was rebuilt just before he had it repainted which was...

    2F rebuild or adjustment - help

    So, I have been contemplating whether my 78 40 needs to stay in my garage or move on to another one (someone else's). My 40 is de-smogged and has the original Aisan Carb and probably Dizzy. When I drive it, the exhaust fume smell can be rough. Not while driving but when I start it up in the...

    UC chat

    @Kajun, glad you are back on this side of the pond. In reference to your comment about being Toyotaless..... The last time I saw you, on trash pick up at Jones Gap you said... "I will be in Germany for a couple years and when I get back, I'm gonna get a 200 series." :slap: :grinpimp: Just do it!

    Seat extension pre-79 40

    Someone asked me about this yesterday. I thought I would bump the original post in the event that anyone here is looking for some extra leg room in their stock 40. It was a necessity for me. :steer:

    Cruisers spotted in the Upstate.....

    Unless he moved, that guy that runs the fabrication shop is heavily involved in the Wounded Warrior project. I/we used to have the storage facility that you were parked at taking the picture. He had a Firebird or Camaro that was painted up that he took to shows with Wounded Warrior Project...

    For Sale / Wanted To Buy

    That has scam written all over it. 79+ bezel up front, too. I wonder where the guy is located? I am guessing it would need to be paid for then "shipped" to the buyer. I hate that stuff like this goes on.

    Primitive'ish camping

    Burrell's Ford area is a great option. Lots of primitive camping on the SC side right on the Chattooga River. It's about 1/4 mile from the parking lot so a little walk but not bad. Other options in that area are closer to vehicles but a little tougher to locate. Another option is to go to a...

    Hardtop storage solution

    In my experience, once you get the posts that are just rearward of the door, clear of the tub, you can walk it back. So, 8-10" would be enough. I am just not sure how you would get the strap/hoist system connected before you got it that high. I just get in the bed of mine after removing all...

    Hardtop storage solution

    I would really like to know how much the top actually weighs. The reason I ask is that I have heard 250# but I can lift it and move it by myself on my back/shoulders. I would estimate mine to be more like 150# but I really don't know. as for the dolly... That was one of my options. I was...

    Hardtop storage solution

    I am not sure what issues I will have with the window seals. I put the tension on the large ratchet strap and also the smaller strap once I had it up because I wasn't sure how much I trusted the hooks as mentioned in the post above. What is your concern with the seal? Flattening it out? I...

    Hardtop storage solution

    The hoist is considered a kayak hoist. It is similar to the one pictured and actually is listed as 125# capacity. This is why I had the large 10,000# ratchet strap hooked up while I was using it. The pulley system had no issues hoisting it and I am sure the rope is more than enough to carry...

    Hardtop storage solution

    I have a 78 model 40-series that I keep topless most of the time. I have owned a mini-warehouse facility for the past 10 years so when it was off, I had a place to store it away from home. A few months ago, we got a sales contract on the property so I had to go pick up the top. I put it back...

    Law enforcement or scdmv offical needed

    Yes, I am pretty sure is the Highway Patrol. I know a guy who did that with a crate built motorcycle. This should be similar.
