    The above info is correct. TFs originally had four(4) small diameter
    head tacks holding the four(4) rubber buffers i.e. two(2) per front quarter panel. The length of the tack was approx. 3/4".

    Depending on the gap between the door and the front quarter panel, these buffers can be sanded down using a pneumatic linisher if required.

    It's also missing the code number from under the trip meter so we can't look it up anywhere. And the divisions between the numbers don't look right.
    Does it have a spare tachometer with it? Best I have come up with so far is this one and it will need a bit of work to get a transfer made for the numbers. I will probably try to convert it to an electronic system.

    Is it more than a coincidence that the Moon is more or less exactly the same apparent size as the Sun during a total eclipse?

    Proof that God exists perhaps - except of course that proof denies faith, and without faith, God is nothing....oh dear....

    Fuel and air filters can become clogged with fine particles invisible to the naked eye and this residue can also become so tightly packed as to withstand backflushing. The definitive test is to remove it and see what happens. Replace anew if required.

    Surely if you have done this - and only this - and the car behaves, then you have discovered your problem n'est pas?
