Post by HOPNBAK »

Does anyone have a source for these parts for my 1963 S22 convertible?

I'd say that's a hen's tooth. My 64 has one and it still works, but I've looked around and never found another one. They only used it on the 260 in 63 and 64. Once the 289 came out, I think they dropped it. Unless you have AC, you should be able to get by without it. Might need to increase your idle just a tad, but I seem to recall that about 650 rpm, mine worked fine, when I crank the idle down to 550 or so is when it is more necessary. Are you having trouble with it stalling when you go lock to lock?
