I've seen people try and get seatbelts to be a different color and they just get stiff. Have you talked to any upholsterers to see what they would charge to change it?

Does anyone know any vendors that sell heater/ac control cables for 71 Javelin. All the ones I have the plastic casings are cracked and are hard to find good used ones.

Hello all,
I have a couple of general questions tuning in my 360, it has on it an older 650 holley single feed 4bbl.
-Can I tune that carb in well enough to get the most out of this motor or is it worth it to go to a bigger cfm?
The only things done to the motor is a 30 over bore, heavy cam with stock valvesprings, dual exhst and intake.
-Where do I run the vacuum line for the vacuum advance to?
-And on the balancer there is a notch, do I use that for the ignition timing or is there supposed to be a white paint mark somewhere?  (I did paint the whole balancer, but it has been like 5 years ago)
 
It does run good as is, no missing or hesitation, but it seems like it could be better.
In other words, my dads chevy truck with a 6.0 is able to keep pace with it, but weighs 1,000 lbs more.  Huh
What gives?

Nothing to worry about.  397 is correct for an AMX.  He was correcting me.  I shortened my answer a bit to save space.
 
3 = 30 series (the AMX is a 30 series body)
9 = 2 door hardtop (AMX is a 2 door hardtop)
7 = trim level (top end or SST)
 
Every AMX VIN I've ever seen has had a 397 in those positions, so I didn't go into deep detail.

LRDaum: Is this something that should concern me? Or is it a general flaw for AMX vins? I dont want to buy a car thats not that it appears to be.
Real happy about all the inputs im getting here, thanks.
