    You need to use adhesive. Use the black 3M super weatherstrip adhesive.

    Also be sure to install the J-seals (they go on the A pillar door jamb just below the windshield). Gel type super glue is...

    I've seen references to hydroboost also being manufactured by Bosch. I have no idea if or how you can tell the difference between a Bendix unit and a Bosch unit, or if it might matter.

    Mineral spirits can be many different things depending on where you get it. What's known in industry as "odorless mineral spirits" is a pretty good choice for parts cleaning solvent, but there are...

    I forget what the name of it is, but I've been using a solvent made for the purpose from Tractor Supply. It's pretty reasonably priced. It doesn't stink too bad and it doesn't tear up my hands and...

    Actually there aren't many more than the ones listed, as the gen5 engines (LT type) were used in many vehicles by 2014. So there are few if any new LS variations since then.

    Yes a hydroboost is smaller than most vacuum boosters for clearance to the engine. But it's obviously not smaller than just a master cylinder. You need a power steering pump to operate it.

    I thought the "no big name sponsors" was on purpose. Do you need big name sponsors? It's also my understanding that Sid isn't in this for the money, unlike Otis and Tony - who may not have been...

    That makes sense. To me, the MSD RTR distributors are the same technology as HEI distributors, and dial back lights work with them.

    The multi-spark feature of MSD-6 and MSD-7 boxes is what...

    The only problem deal I know of is using some dial back lights with an MSD box. Never heard of any light being a problem with an MSD distributor and no box.

    Can you read the date code numbers? Photos are too blurry for me.

    The date codes are pretty simple. Example A 16 4. A would be January, 16 would be the day of the month, 4 would be the last digit of the year. You also need to know the casting number.

    Sedan and wagon front doors are the same.

    But wagon rear doors aren't the same as sedan doors - so that means they are not as plentiful.

    Once primed and verifying that you have oil to the rockers, you won't need to pull the distributor and re-prime even if you wait a reasonable time. All you would need to do...

    Really no need to torque it, just don't get carried away. Use a combination wrench and tighten it snug, not gorilla tight on such a small bolt.

    My thought is there is a reason they labeled it the way they did.

    A filter is too cheap to try to use a questionable one.

    The problem I'd suspect, if it was a factor, would be that the glue they use to glue the pleated element to the end caps dissolves or is otherwise affected by gasoline or especially ethanol.
