Re: Exhaust Pipe Flange/Ring installation

Many thanks guys. I didn't know about going back to re-tighten bolts. Will do. Attached are pix.

Exhaust Pipe Flange/Ring installation

I have a '65 Ranchero with a 200. I am replacing the worn out, leaking exhaust pipe flange/ring which goes between the exhaust manifold and exhaust pipe. I have the flange, #C3OZ-9450-A, and ready to install. Is this flange installed with any kind of high-temp sealant or is it installed with just th...

Re: DSII headbanger

GOT ER STARTED!!! Runs like crap, but she starts. It was the freakin starter- bought it at Autozone 2 1/2 years ago. "Lifetime" guarantee, so they just gave me another one (I wonder how long this one will last). I made them test it before I left the store. So I started out checking all gro...

Re: DSII headbanger

Thanks all. I will check again on all suggestions, but battery terminals are clean, I've cut the infamous "pink" wire near ignition, and removed brown wire from solenoid, firing order is correct. I'll check TDC again, coil, and grounds. I didn't know that being out of time could impact eng...

Re: DSII headbanger

Thanks Mike. Yeah checked each of those over and over. But the primary issue at the moment is that it barely turns over, maybe just once or twice which I'm presuming is due to + side of coil only getting 6v... does anyone know if this is a correct presumption??

DSII headbanger

I have a '65 Ranchero with the 200, C4 auto. Having a very difficult time getting it to run after installing a DSII kit and Autolite 1101 carb. I've researched for hours and read over and over all I could find including all the Tech Archives regarding ignition system and the excellent "Performa...

Re: 2 new starters, same problem

I've driven the car frequently over the last week with no problems- started every time.
The trouble seems to have been with the Autozone starters. Third time's a charm.
Thanks all for advice!

Re: 2 new starters, same problem

Yo Bubba, you rock! I'll need to research exactly where the, "ring gear...on the torque converter" is in order to inspect- anyone have a diagram? I thought it was just "starter gear-to-flywheel" kind of thing... Also, I need to use the car tomorrow (it's a daily runner, always wi...

Last week I replaced the starter with an Autozone Duralast 3131. started fine, but the next day it in...
