    Finally hang my 10+ year member gift up. We were going to put in in a frame but this looks better. Life keeps taking changes, sold one monte and still have one just not with me at my townhouse.
  2. I just saw this. I use a min Mac when I want to access the website from a computer I have never seen that issue before. I do use a Apple iPhone when I’m on the go or at work. Is the iOS up to date for the Mac not saying that is the issue just one place to check in to or even check to see if there is a website update for the Mac. Maybe try and install google chrome on your Mac and see if it acts different. You say you used a win10 box with the log in was where it usually is at. The only thing different is the browser that the two system uses. The webpage should stay the same as it’s all html base.
  3. As much as I would love to join my monte family I am unable to join ☹️. Funding has been a major setback with joining the club this year and the cost of the hotel and prepping the car for a long drive I just don’t see it. It sounds like Carlisle will be a big hit with hopefully all the members that do go and I wish those that do a safe trip.
  4. I have that same tie along with a Pontiac tie. Paid about $5 each for them.
  5. It looks to me as if the bracket is in the wrong place. I’m no where close to my one of my cars to provide a picture. But the bracket on my cars bolt to the bottom side of the pan not between the pan and body of the trans. If it’s mounted in the wrong place it could be using the wrong bolts to hold it to the trans.
  6. The townhouse is 13 years old, we are buying from the original owners who has updated some of the place.

    Life changes

    This time last year my girlfriend had just moved back home. Next month we become home owners. We had just started out to see what was in the market we could afford. I had asked a couple co-workers of mine what their mortgage was. To my surprise we were paying more in rent then my co-workers. So we are going from a 1,192 sq foot apartment to a 2,500 sqft three level townhouse. The Montes are safe as they are still hanging out with the Nomad and the El Camino at moms.
  8. Keith it’s a plain color. My 70 was originally that color with a gold top and gold interior.
  9. As far as I know there is no aftermarket lenses that has the clock stem filled in. Doing the stock style gauges ain’t cheap but can be done. As for removal of the dash board there is two bolts next to the a-pillars, two under the dash by the kick panels, one above the steering column and one at the glove box. Once those are removed and the steering column is out of the way the whole dash will come out. Disconnect the battery, remove the headlight switch, and speedo cable. When you unplug the 12 pin plug you have a battery hot feed in that plug. Oh
  10. Finally getting around to selling items that has been obtain over the years. I have a factory 3:31 matching gear set. The plan was to use it in either my Monte or in the El Camino. I have done research and I see no aftermarket vendors doing 3:31’s. Not sure what it’s worth.
  11. Steve have you tried to bleed the master cylinder? The nipples are bleeders to get trapped air out of the master cylinder. You would bleed it the same way as the brakes. I would drain the master cylinder and use compressor air to blow the out the opening. Which part of the master cylinder is being bypassed the front or back? Do you have fluid at all four corners?
  12. The brake switch should have power going in on one side believe it’s an orange wire. When the brake paddle is push power carries over to the other wire which runs to the tail lights. Did you change the flashers to a digital flasher? The fact that the passenger side is bright while the drivers side is dim doesn’t make sense as the passenger side gets its power feed from the drivers side brake light.
  13. Well I pulled the cover off change the battery and sprayed a little starting fluid in the carb and got it running. 8897BB99-8A55-468C-818B-9356978F59FA.MOV 8897BB99-8A55-468C-818B-9356978F59FA.MOV 3D3320A9-85DF-49B0-AD4E-8FC8FAC84E46.MOV B61D2B79-B00D-4C62-BD59-5FFD59513D47.MOV
  14. That almost sound like the NSS was out of adjustment. I have seen that on a 70 el Camino I have. Once the NSS was adjusted on the column it was good to go.
  15. Make sure you disconnect the battery. You might find it easier to reach coming from the steering column area. Coming from the top you have the wire harness to deal with and the PCB can get damaged.
