Yep. I think 72 or 73 as well. Bumpers could have been replaced but I think the antenna went to the rear quarter panel in 74.

That’s exactly it’s purpose. It is supposed to prevent the hot engine air from exiting through the gap at the back of the hood and being ingested into the cowl air grilles.

What rowdie said: “quality crows foot”. I had a few that were tight but able to break them loose without rounding the nuts. Just need to be careful.

About the same as your describing at high speed, high revs. Then at 55 mph, temp was just above 175. Here is my thread on it-look at MBGrahams comments about ignition timing.

How hot does yours...

Not sure if it applies to your year but on mine I was seeing the same thing (high temp related to high rpm).

Can you explain “we are injecting for two cylinders”?

We have 8 injectors-I always just assumed 1 fired at a time to coincide with the intake valve. No? Trying to learn..

What would ignition timing have to do with valve clatter?

I’m curious because I just got done checking my timing chain and guides. Both cams lined up perfectly with the crank at about 8 degrees...

Well, the price was right.

Even if the rust is terminal, lots of good parts if your inclined to part out.

Either way, you found the right place here. This is probably the most active site and...

Check the ones in EGv107 scanned by Rockcrusher. Same as what Brad posted but very clear. They start at 1973 but that should be the same as 1972.

Thanks. I think the difference is an air injection port on the later models.

I haven’t had a chance to look into the valve adjustment procedure yet. Is that easy DIY? Any special tooling?

On further inspection, I think I’ll replace the tensioner as well - it compresses very easily.

Have you all used Febi/Bilstein? Or best to spring for OEM? Significant price difference.

Can someone help confirm what I’m looking at? I think I have both cam timing marks lined up at 5 degrees ATDC. I believe the limit is 10-11 degrees so, should be good to go for awhile?

Maybe I missed it.

Swap with a “V8 from a 350sl” or with a “350CI V8 (GM/Chevy)”?
