I got this roadster pulley. Is this a 67 2000 water pulley? The side is very slightly angled.

Looks like a U20 single groove pulley (your looks very new)!

Is it possible to get 'replacement parts' for the map light? The white plastic threads on mine are cracked.

Mine no longer works as well. Maybe someone could reproduce the plastic parts with a 3D printer.

If it can’t be 3D printed, it might be a good candidate for Alumilite silicone mold and casting resin. I haven’t tried it yet

Unfortunately I think only used is available. Any one with some late parts cars should be able to hook you up. This one might be solid, but it's hard to see the wires, worst case is popping your old socket into it.

SIDE STEERING RODS:

They are side specific based on part number, but look very similar. Can someone describe the differences left side vs. right side (visually), as well as what side connects to the pitman arm vs. the wheel knuckle?

Pictures always most helpful.


Thanks!

Since I'm swapping rear ends, I figure it'll be a good time to level out the rear. Anyone have info on lowering blocks and longer U bolts?

I see they are different P/N's but I don't think it is a critical issue.
However, here is what the parts manual shows: -

I would guess that because the position of the Zerks is different between the two part numbers - that they would be inaccessible or interfere if placed on the wrong side?

Probably the only difference: ease of maintenance :)

Gonna have to make the blocks or cut down known blocks. I think jeep front ubolts work for diff dia, but are larger thread diameter, so the plate holes needs to be oversized slightly.
Problem is with buying a kit, is model....there is a Ubolt manufacturer that will make you whatever you want, but they would rather sell you 10.
My plan is 1”.
Still waiting for Eric to find his receipt from Summit lol.
Not hard to do later .).)
