  4. polyurethane conformal coatings to insulate wiring - any thoughts?

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I have used liquid electrical tape a few times which sounds similar. I used in some boat wiring where I made wiring splices in the damp area of the bilge to power the bilge pump. Also used it on the FFR tail light wires after cutting them to remove for paint and splicing back together. Some...

  7. Outer tie rod ball joint spinning

    Factory Five Roadsters
    IMHO nylocks are every bit as good as castle nuts and cotter pins. In this instance they do make assembly a little more difficult, but the end result will be fine.

    Thanks for posting the Leno video. I am very impressed w/ the C8. Hate there is no stick trans but I guess that is coming more and more.

    There was some slightly different programming in the auto trans ecu but way back when I used one for over a year in a 5 speed car. so it will work.

    Community Help
    I was kicked off last Friday. Now I see I can post again. But several posts from while I was kicked off show up for me in a different color w/ a note that says I can see it but no one else can. Overall it is certainly different. I will give it a week of use before deciding if it's better or not.

    Factory Five Roadsters
    A couple of recommendations for when you do the rears; - use a couple more washers, - get a standard lug nut in 1/2-20 and thread it onto the lug backwards so the flat end is against the washers. The lugnut is longer so there are more threads engaged...

    Factory Five Roadsters
    Yes to RTV around the water ports in the intake gaskets. A thin smear on both sides.
  19. RTV recs on engine reassembly

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I have never liked the feel of the intake bolts. So last time I had the intake off I installed ARP studs. https://arpcatalog.com/84/ Tightening a high quality nut on to a high quality stud is much better at getting a good torque compared to bolts into heads. I second the multiple re-checks. I...
  20. COBRA fastback???

    Off Topic Discussions
    Every once in a while I see videos of the classic car races over in England. There are usually several fast backs running. We know the body of the original cobra coupe had a huge effect on it's performance compared to the roadster. So, if I were in that classic racing league running a roadster...
