Re: 66 Brakes?

Thanks Otto. I kinda figured that would be the case. Just wishful thinking.

Do you still have the single res on yours?

66 Brakes?

I’m sure this has been discussed on here before but I’m not finding much in the searches. Has anyone gone to a dual master cylinder on a 66? I’m not talking about a disc conversion, just the mc swap. I’m wondering if there is a noticeable difference. I understand the safety aspect but I want to know...

Re: Toronado 66 headlight actuators

Hey François. How are your headlight actuators working for you? I’m almost done with my 66 and now I’m having trouble with mine. I took them apart and cleaned/lubed everything but I can’t get them to work properly. One of them opens if I apply direct vac to it. The other one will work sometimes with...

Re: 69 Toronado Quadrajet Secondaries Not Opening

As far as the headlights go I would check the dimmer switch. The power supply goes from the headlight switch to the dimmer switch. There should be three wires in the plug. Unplug the connector from the dimmer switch and see if you have power to one of them when the light switch is on.

Re: Vapor Lock on 1966 Toronado

I’ve not experienced this before which leads me to believe it’s more about the fuel itself. Can you get non ethanol gas where you are? Or maybe try mixing in half race fuel or avgas. I have an in line electric pump on my 51 Caddy in addition to the mechanical pump. I installed it originally for the ...
