    786 engine

    our 766 has a 360
  2. Well some one may need to correct this but; When you steer the collar of the actuator moves a tiny amount forwards or back based on the direction you are steering. When it moves a channel(think valve) opens up letting fluid move pressurizing the correct side to assist in the steering. If the last knuckle down by the valve does not let the shaft move in and out a little it will defeat the steering assist. If some one took it apart the little stub shaft that goes up into the valve can be in the wrong place. Also I have seen some one weld the last knuckle on and then it will not work also. Splines have been stripped out etc. don't have the book with me right now.
  3. Wish I could remember where, but there was a guy I believe here with a 656 that he highly modded the motor. He did dyno it with various exhaust strategies even to split manifolds. Results were interesting.
  4. Does anyone actually carry a check book every day.
  5. Nice , I always liked that series and model.
  6. Foaming coil cleaner works on cars and house a/c. Not sure about paint used to use “flesh eating cleaner” but whatever you do rinse everything down and then rinse it down twice more and use gloves. Will destroy roofs and anything else in the way. Will take grease out. Some from McMaster and grainger use in well ventilated areas.
  7. You have the early teledeph system. Same as early 60 series. The one on the brothers 240 is the later style. All of ours have worked over the years. 230,240, and 460.
  8. I bought a large bolt. Grade 8 that would be just long enough that when put in from the bottom have room for a washer and nut with room for a hair pin clip on top.
  9. Missed that was mentioned earlier.
  10. unless it is bolted down.
  11. I have seen people strap a child's snow slide toboggan under the hitch, ones that will roll up. Seriously we put 16.9 on our 686 and that helped a lot.
  12. Parts came in.... and one of the hoses, the end that is pushed into the base of the filter has been smashed flat. Just got to love parts handlers...
  13. He is also not dirty enough to be at the cursing stage. Just mildly inconvenienced. Mine usually go like this- engine oil cooler lines leaking on the Suburban- order hoses- get hoses-take old ones off- put the new ones on underneath engine- find the fitting that goes into radiator are a different size, have to put old ones back on because I can't close the garage door. Meanwhile the oily grease from the leak is all painted over my arms and shirt. Now I am not happy and the store does not know if the other set labeled for the Suburban are the right ones, either way they have to order them. To be continued in a back yard garage in Wisconsin.
