Fellas , I have had my 806 L.P. on electronic ignition since restore . two years. I have never been happy with idle power sound , sounds like a miss , at full power sounds great. Have triple checked everything ,only thing left is electrical. I am going back to points ,however , I was running resistor on high output coil. I now have high output coil with internal resister , Do I still run external resister or delete it . Sounds like a DUH question but of 7 gas or L.P. restorations I have had two that refused to run on electronic and others that are happier with resister and others that are not. I am not expert on electrical and am looking for your experiences. Thanks, Tony
As some of you may remember, I have been working on the hydraulic system on my 1964 606. I had "hard spots" in the steering, which would cause times in which the steering became difficult momentarily. I have now found what I believe to be the culprit. On the steering control (pilot) valve, there is a "pressure check valve" on the input port of the valve. When I removed the control valve, the "poppet" fell out and it looks clear that there is further damage inside the check valve. The Blue Ribbon service manual GSS-1337-C, says "inspect the pressure check valve poppet and it's seat for grooves or defects that may result in leakage. If the poppet and seat seem to be defective, replace them." What it does not say is how to remove the parts. There is a retainer ring that comes out easily. The next thing I see is a damaged rubber "seal." How do the innards come out? I don't want to do any more damage, so I'm hoping someone here knows. Thanks as always.
