Re: 1966 Toronado muffler and exhaust system

My '66 has the original factory pipes, muffler, tips, etc. It sounds perfect - not obnoxiously loud and not too quiet. I would put it back as close to stock as possible. There are no catalytic converters (cats) on the '66. Search this forum. Others have used Waldron and Classic and one of them, I do...

Re: Hello from Germany!

I set my car to factory spec 7.5 BTDC (or as close as you can get to that with the weird timing mark and a strobe light). The car runs fine.

Disconnect vacuum advance and plug hose when setting timing. Make sure idle speed is at recommended rpm.

Re: Gear Select Problem on a 1987 Troféo

I'm not familiar with cars that new but perhaps you can buy a replacement switch from a junkyard. This site searches hundreds of yards around the country. I've found that it's best to search for yards that have your particular car, then call and speak in person about the specific part. http://www.ca...

Re: 1970 Toro in Hawaii

That's nice. $2900 was a bargain, even in 2011.

Re: Gas tank leak

The passenger side of the tank at the top is where the fuel line and vapor recovery line (ac models only) enters the tank. The vent pipe is also in this area at the top right front of the tank. Do you have a factory service manual? There is a diagram of these connections in it. My guess is over-file...

You should be aware of this company: http://www.appliedgmc.com They specialize in GMC motor homes and are extremely knowledgeable and helpful with the Toronado drivetrain. These engines and transmissions are extremely durable. If I were you, I'd flush and refill the transmission and drive it. If it ...

Re: rear tailight gaps?

I just went out and looked at my car. It looks like they can only be accessed with the bumper off from below. The mounting area is behind the stamping for the fuel filler neck Here are two spares I have. It looks like they screw or bolt on from behind. I don't see any screw holes or brackets in your...
