number one clylinder,, you should check out 3sx.com they have all the manuals free for download

thank you good sir. first time going thru this car so any help/advice is much appreciated.

Daniel Foster

you know how to set the timing on the cams right ?

Yes I do. Just wasn't sure which cylinder to go off of. The service manual wasn't very clear about which one it is. I assume its the first one on the front side?

Daniel Foster

If you mean the cylinder far right on the front bank when standing in front of the car,, then yes

Daniel Foster

Thank you. Very helpful! Would you happen to know where I might find interior trim parts? I'm doing a full resto and can't find this shit anywhere.

Daniel Foster

Daniel Foster

I've pulled all the bolts I can find and moved the motor mount and it still won't let go:/

Daniel Foster
