I am sick of doing with a socket and handle on front of motor. I am wanting to hook up a remote starter button. Does anyone know where i connect a button too for easy setting of valves .

Wire it to supply power to the starter solenoid. Its the small terminal, the one you can short with a screwdriver across to the main power feed to hot wire it and pinch it. HA HA HA.

My car has a second starter button mounted on the firewall from the inside out. It makes it real handy when adjusting the valves.

I have one like Ken. I put mine in the center of the firewall so I can reach it from either side of the car. It's a little difficult to reach if I don't take the scoop off. I can't remember who it was but I have seen a car that had 2 buttons under the hood, one on each side.

I got one too, and I have a GM A-body front end that's still stock and I have it fitted right into th ehood release bracket and it works out nice from both sides of the car. If you have a remote starter solenoid like the Fords had, you can wire it up to there also. ;-)
