Hi All
Im having trouble getting my hands on a exhaust flange gasket for the Turbo Dump pipe. The 3 bolt hole spacing are 78 x 78 x 78.
Exhaust pipe hole needs to be 2.5' or larger.
Any ideas what other car has one like this??

cheers

One of the local farm/ranch stores always has Kroil in stock, and bigger spray cans too. Still, if I need one can I buy two. Sometimes, they have one gallon cans in stock. It' expensive...but worth it (there's a lot of things like that...).

I second acetone and antifreeze as an option.

Another one: I gave up PB Blaster for Kroil as my go-to, a changed I made years ago and have stuck with.

Cool project and following...

I agree with the Kroil, it's just hard to find.

I use Autopal E-code H4 setup for RH rule of the road. I also installed a high current relay harness. Philips Xtreme Vision bulbs.

The current H4 conversion kits available today are for the most part are mediocre and the plug and play led options are generally worse unless you're willing to spend a half grand. I've seen numerous people on facebook with these

but after seeing the reviews like this one
https://www.thedrive.com/tech/19906/upgrading-your-sealed-beam-headlights-halogen-versus-led
the leds look like a downgrade to say the least.


I recently ordered a pair of these.

Still waiting for them with the shipping time from China due to Corona has been painfully slow, but the output pics from the reviews on HidPlanet look amazing, just hope i can make the bulb retaining ring clear the bucket hinge.


At the current moment I'm still using the 2.5" mini H1s similar to the ones in the link Rocketman posted in the aluminum frames i built and they are a massive improvement over the stock halogens. I've been designing some new frames for them in solidworks so I can 3d print them out of ABS. This would allow me to make multiple sets faster and hopefully find some people to help test them for durability.

I've stuck with sealed beams, using the Sylvania SilverStar replacements to good effect. Rarely is the car out at headlight time, but these do fine for what I'm doing.

Halogens run hot, or have historically (still?), and I wouldn't want to drop my buckets down and melt something. LEDs are too expensive for what I am after.

One thing that helps sealed beams deliver better light is direct wiring to the battery, using an aftermarket headlight harness. Better voltage delivery provides better light. I put one in my Jeep and it made a difference.

And, overall, I'm not terribly impressed with the headlight conversion kits out there.

Errr...

The windshield might be worth that much since they are made of unobtanium.

It's still up for sale, so maybe the 2021 Woodward Dream Cruise since it's in Detroit?

I guess I should scavenge the bleeders out of my old calipers that I have laying around.
