  2. there are 3 pages you'll have to click thru, lots of cool rust repair pics http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/showthread.php?p=7978815&mode=linear#post7978815
  3. I pity the fool that ain't watchin' Jared's youtube channel JARED1970MONTE I tell you WHAT. U gotta log on to that there youtoob and subscribe to jared WITH NOTIFICATIONS. when jared posts a new video it will alert you right then and there. STOP and DROP what you're doing and become immersed in jareds expert rants, reviews, and restorations. but in the meantime enjoy two of the more CLASSIC jared1970monte moments, but friends I must advise you to turn your speakers up reaaaally loud before you click for maximum enjoyment.
  4. Has anyone seen the commercial for a new movie. I caught a glimpse of a tan 70 monte in the ad..... can't remember the name of the movie.
  5. I have a 36x20 shop with unfinished walls inside. 9 foot ceiling. It was built about 15 years ago. At the time, I put (14) 8 foot twin fluorescent fixtures in there. I have been extremely unhappy with them. For one, the bulbs are constantly dying out. For two, the ballasts are constantly dying out. For three, the original ballasts were magnetic style, ballasts are not magnetic anymore, to put a new ballast in, it costs at least 25 bucks and you have to wire the fixture differently. And last but not least, I have had on TWO separate occasions, the bulb fall out of the sky onto the garage floor (once on my truck) and shatter. Looking at the fixture, the plastic part that springs in and out burned up and that's why the lightbulb fell. This led me to climbing up to each fixture and zip-tying the bulb to the fixture loosely. So at this point, LITERALLY half of the bulbs in my garage are working, for whatever reason, broken fixture, bulb blown out, ballast not working, etc etc. A few months ago I invested in LED bulbs for INSIDE MY HOUSE, but I'm thinking about investing further in LED, by purchasing enough LED fixtures to light the way. One site helps me calculate how many lumens I need for my space. About 40000. That means about 9 or 10 of these. https://www.amazon.com/LED-Watt-Line...d%2Blight&th=1 these fixtures are half the length of my 8 foot twin flourescents, will almost never need changing, will be more energy efficient, and will never need a ballast replacement. Seems almost maintenance free. Cost will be over 500.00 Talk me into it. or talk me out of it.

  7. ok great, I found an old compression style ring on my old standard steering wheel. i'll just rob that. I'm surprised the kits don't come with both kind of rings.... thanks a million!
  8. I have a 70 but I have the tab style later model ring. Is there a workaround?
  9. how does the black retaining ring work? I don't understand how that part fits
  10. how does the black retaining ring work? I don't understand how that part fits
  11. how does the black retaining ring work? I don't understand how that part fits
  12. how do I make the horn work? The kit I bought came with three little Parts. A spring, a rod with a nail head, and a tiny black plastic ring. I can't determine how they go in and what order and which way they go in exactly. I can't make any sense of it
  13. Well I don't believe that's going to help me. My cup diameter size is the same on all 4 cups its just wider at the yoke on the rearend. Your measurements above you say the cup diameter is different. I wish I had the u-joints that came off of the car but I no longer have them. I guess I could get under the car and measure but it seems like it would need to be a really super accurate measurement. I wish I had measuring calipers. Check out the below link. It shows a listing for 2 different 12 bolt pinion yokes. 3-7/32 and 3-5/8 .... that's just a 1/32 of an inch difference. But its enough to notice play in it.. Maybe the u-joint I have is 3-7/32 x 3-7/32 and I need a 3-7/32 x 3-5/8 with a 1-1/16 cap on all 4's..... But I still don't know yet http://www.dennysdriveshaft.com/c57_chevy_12_bolt.html
