Re: "Right up your alley"

The controls operate the same as they would on a LHD car. Spark on the left, gas on the right. Retarded position for the spark is all the way up.

Re: Opinions on Tires

My BF Goodrich 550's had close to 13,000 miles on them when I took them off, and they still had probably another 7,000 miles before they wore out. They lasted WAY WAY WAY longer than any of the...

Re: Motor mount question

sounds like you have either the wrong set up in your car, or a weak rear spring.

Re: White plastic 6 blade fan with v belt pulley

my guess would be to be able to see it spinning while it's running against the black radiator so not to get your hand caught in it.

Re: Don't Forget to Retard the Spark to Start

Mine use to do that. But it wasn't because of the spark advance. If there's a high spot on either brass button on the starter or the brass strip on the switch, it'll send too much energy through the...

Re: Town Car In Swap Meet

asking price is way high. I've seen restored '29s asking for $130,000. I mean, a '30 is way more rare, but at that point- a town car is a town car. A year difference wouldn't mean much to me.

Re: Article in the new Restorer

Re: how can we get the youth to be come involed in our hobby?

It has to start on the local level. If your club is anti-mods, only sits around on Saturday mornings for coffee @ McDonalds, or has their meetings at a nursing home: you won't have any young members....

Re: overheat over 45

Get the radiator rodded out. It takes an hour to get if off and less than 2 to put it back on. $70 and your worries are gone. My bets are the radiator is clogged. If you don't know when the last time...
