My message originally started here : http://pantera.infopop.cc/eve/...90052674/m/233101936
but since it's not anymore the right section I continue here wich is a more appropriate section.
Let's make a point : I'am from France and I have now a 1971 Pantera in my garage wich I bought myself in Indianapolis.
I have some problems with it.
The cat has been seating for a long time after a restoration. Last days I had several rides with it and it appears that I have a leak....not a small one.
It goes all over the engine, it reaches the back window as you can see on the picture.
Yesterday someone who knows a little bit about american engines came to my place, he thinks upper engine gaskets are shoots...
Hard to say, I'am going to restart the car and to look at the engine bay to confirm...I didn't do it yet.
See on my picture, waht I call "upper engine gaskets" is highlight in red.
I speak well english but I'm not familiar with mechanical terms but I think it's the right term.
Also see on my picture oil all over the engine is highlight in blue.
I want good stuff for my car...well in fact I just want to stop that leak...
So where can I find on Internet the gaskets I need ? and is it hard to replace myself ?
The leak might comes from somewhere else ??? Any idea ?
Another question, is the accelerator cable normal to you ? it seems that it has been badly fix...
Thanks to all of you for help newbies like me !
