    Right, the washers were in the correct order, it was binding because the bracket wasn't centered. Loosened the two screws and lined it up, now it's OK. Couldn't find the silicone so put some...

    If you warm it up with the cap off and see a good flow of coolant when the thermostat opens, you can rule out thermostat, water pump and radiator blockage.

    '73 Choke lever assembly

    At first I thought I broke the cable or the handle, but it's probably not that bad. When I pulled out the ashtray and some greasy jute material that was in there, and looked into the metal pan under...
