Don't you have an AIM? The detail is shown in the drawings. Seeing a photo of a properly detailed strap system will help you, but it won't show all of the small hardware parts needed for that system.

If you have an arc welder, you could tack-weld a rod with 90* bend to the end of that bleeder, then just back it out. I know you bought another caliper, but thought others might want to know.

It could be that the fit isn't quite right; but as you mentioned that they were 'tight', I suspect the problem is just the "fresh" rubber on metal. The polymer protectant (dries completely in just a...

Are you referring to the 'convector' [amp] for the Delco radio or to the ammeter? The convector is located behind the passenger-side dash pad on a metal support rail just below the upper dash pad.
