For metric hoses try www.belmetric.com
They carry the correct COHLINE hoses.

Anyone ever had to replace the rubber bushing in the throttle linkage? Circled area in the picture below. Mine is falling apart. Doesn't seem like it needs to be any special material. Just needs to hold the other rod in place.

It is the same ball that is on the other end - at the right in your picture. Readilly available.

Mine did not have a ball on that end. Just a rubber bushing inside the bracket. Here are a couple pictures.





Today I finally removed the final transmission oil cooler line. It was seized, damaged and appears it may at some point hit the AC pulley. The fitting is not re useable any more as it damaged down to the thread.



Can anyone tell if this alternator is correct? Appears to be a rebuilt unit and part of the housing seems cut off to allow fitment. It seems there wasn't enough room for movement to replace the belt without completely removing the alternator. Looks like I needed to remove the alternator regardless as all the rubber mounting bushings are shot.

There is no point in arguing; it really does not matter what was on your car, it is what should be there. I am posting two images from the November 1970 Parts Manual.

What you are showing in your first picture is the crumbled remains of the ball. In the second picture, I can see the steel centre sleeve of the ball with its lug still sitting on the throttle shaft. The first image shows the ball with its sleeve and lug, part 29. The second image shows the detail of part 29, called a "ball, joint" and clearly states that there are 2 of them. It gives the original part number which is now upgraded to a 126 part number which I think is 126 301 04 85. If you give the Classic Center the old part number, they will upgrade to the new. I tried to take a picture of one of these balls, but I can't get the image small enough to post here - it is a long story regarding the software that I used to use to do it.

Thanks for the information Art. I had not intended to argue at all. I'm finding that there a few items on the car that are not as they should be. I had originally sent that picture to the classic center and they said only the complete bracket was available at a cost of $1,600! I get in touch with again now with the proper information. Thanks again!

I got my software to work - don't ask me how. Here is a picture of the 126 ball.

Dear Gerald,
wish I had seen this post earlier. I would have laid you 2 of the 126balls of my stock in the parcel with the pulley you bought from me.....balls shoud be available at every MB dealer and do not cost a fortune!

That alternator looks original. I have one just like it sitting on my shelving with the same corner "cut off". Here is the one on #2509 which has sat for 30 years unmolested.

Oliver, that would have been great. I will have a replacement coming from the classic center.

Art, thanks for the confirmation. Reading through some old posts I did learn that the belts can be difficult to fit.

I'm again thinking about pulling the FIP. Yesterday I was checking the oil at the rear dipstick and when I removed it oil came spewing out of it. The oil smelled of old fuel. Some old posts indicated this was a sign of the internal seals leaking and overfilling the rear of the pump. Is this a sure sign of it needing an overhaul?

Definitely leaking internally. Have it properly rebuilt. I have relied on Fairchild Industries since the late fifties. While the injectors are quite reliable, it would not be a bad idea to have the injectors checked and cleaned at the same time. Just my $.02

I will give them a ring to get a rough estimate on the cost.

The other recommendation is Gus at Pacific Fuel Injection and I believe the cost is roughly $2,200 these days.

Can you let us know what you get for pricing estimates to rebuild the pump? I'll need to do mine very soon.

thanks

I had previously contacted Pacific when I originally planned to pull the pump and I was quoted ~$2,200. This would have included all the re-plating and making the pump look new.

Fairchild estimated $750-800 for only a mechanical overhaul with an additional ~$200 for re-plating.

Both estimate a turn around of about a month.

I don't quite know enough on pump rebuilds to ask specific questions as to why there would be a significant cost difference between the two.

Try Hans at H & R Fuel Injection in Bohemia, NY

Hans has always done right by me and his pumps always looked like new when I got them back, fresh plating on hardware, etc.
