Hey guys and girls i just brought home a 400 sting im not sure on the year, maybe you could help id the year? its pretty nice other that its only got spark on one cylinder, its hard to see the lower set of points to see if they are set right, i think ill pull the motor any tips? thanks for the great site
Yep, pull the engine. tear it down. new seals. seal crank case . clean points and after re-assembly, set timing correctly. If it has a air leak or timing isnt right, you'll have problems. Make sure you have a good quality flywheel puller. many headaches start with pulling the flywheel.

You mean you paid $100.00 for a pile of junk? Who is the sucker that will pay to restore that thing? Your Dad? P.T. Barnum said there is a sucker born every minute! Probably some dumbass in California!!!! Dennis Moore (his dad) ;D Los Angeles
picked up a nice mark III widetrack hood for 30 bucks. pretty good shape. also got a bumper for it too but its kinda rusty and has a big dent in it. Ill see what I can do with it. Although not new to my shop I also have a freshly cleaned up and painted 71 stingerIII chassis. Hmm.... mabey that 6bolt head cuyuna motor on the bench....71 super widetrack seatcover down in the basement.....I do have a nice 74 widetrack rear bumper my dad found on ebay and mailed to me.... shit I guess I may as well add another to the herd!!!!!

just joined the scorpion gang over the weekend. a 72 tunnel w/ Para Rail susp and 73 yellow wedge hood w/ a 400 Rockwell stuffed under it. If you had to give just a one line description about this sled what would you say?

I should have known, it tipped over when I went to look at it!
but i do like the steel tunnel (i can weld to it easily) I wanna put a long track skid in it, pogo's front suspension mod up new sterring geometry and keep the stock hood for a deep powder trailer blazer and work sled. ;D
