    Well heres what I did,but I went from 2.72 to 3.70. I've got the yellow drive gear,bought the biggest driven gear I could get which is 45 tooth (green).Then I went to the bone yard and got an external speedo reducer, 1.25 to 1 and took it apart and reversed the gears inside to get it down to .75...

    It could be the high idle cam is rocking up at times, since there is to tension on it with the choke wired open.

    Battery -Light- Oil leak

    Chances are one of the diodes has gone out in the alt.,so you'll have to have a rebuild or a replacement,but have it tested first anyway.If you take it off,most places test for free.

    No start problem

    beware on that 6 pin connecter,they will plug in backwards,and if you do ,you'll burn out the park/netural relay,when that happens the starter will crank as soon as the key is turned on.I learned that through the school of har knocks.

    The first one was one form an implement store,Farm&Fleet, that has a very good rep. for batteries,I believe thier made by Johnson Controls,the replacement was a Champion as at the time they were out of the one I needed at f&f.

    No start problem

    If I were you,just for my own piece of mind,I'd do a hydrometer check on the bat. to see if all the cells are up to snuff.

    Door panels

    Can't tell you on a 76, but put new ones on my 82 and all I can tell you is take your time and if you have problems walk away for a while.I wasn't overly impreesed with the made to fit carpet, console side panels or door panels.They all took a lot of triming and finesse to get them to look right.

As starters go,I changed...
