    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...

    The brace from block to starter is an effective part. I've never seen one fail. The only reason the attaching bolt would fail is if you over torqued it at installation.

    What if I don't want a 215? You want selection of width vs. diameter (aspect ratio) and it's just not there for the 16" in the bigger widths.
