Re: Chemical Dip Needed

These folks started out as a dipping service and now do a lot more. Maybe they are still dipping.

Interior sun visor is what I would call them. The car looks nice!

Re: start on 12v run on 6v

It would be cheaper and easier to just fix the problem than adding more to go wrong.

Re: GAV Knob Question

When it closes does it run worse? if not don't worry about it. you can also replace the grommet at the dash and make sure the GAV needle & seat assembly at the carb has the C clip installed.

Re: Putting oil in distributor shaft.

There should be oilers on the body and it will flow on the shaft. you can clean things up and oil it manually. Outside of the body it really doesn't need lube except a bit of grease on the tangs...

Re: Engine install with transmission

That is what a piece of fence board is used for in my garage. Just make sure it is finger width!

Re: Engine install with transmission

Install as a unit, it is much easier as long as the radiator is removed.

Re: Vintage Precision thermostat housing

Wasn't the problem you had with the new water pump actually your modified head? I'm sure the pump Brattons sold you was as good as anyone else sells.

Re: Water pump won't fit now.

If it spins without binding it should be fine. Lube it up and go!

Re: Water pump won't fit now.

Missing instructions could be an omission at the manufacture/packaging point.

Re: Water pump won't fit now.

Don't just check the OD, compare and measure the length of the shaft and shaft past the impeller to the casting. Compare everything and let us know what you find.

Re: How do i remove the .....

I would support the casting well and press slowly and straight.

Re: Water pump won't fit now.

If so you want to shoot for .006 clearance with the gasket in place. Usually 0 clearance without the gasket.

Re: Adjusting

One thing an alignment shop can do is also check the caster, camber, and king pin slop, as well as adjusting the proper toe adjustment. The shop I used even straightened my slightly bent tie rod.

Re: Water pump won't fit now.

I agree assess the differences and maybe let us know so we can help with a solution. Some pump shafts were made longer to be able to fit the clearance in a worn head stop.

Re: Clutch adjustment help

If it has an inspection plate take a look to see what is going on inside when someone depresses the clutch.

You may have replacement glass with a more narrow thickness.

Re: Front Fenders

The differences are many and majorly cosmetic. Your best bet would be to trade for the ones you need.

Re: Distributor install

The lower shaft should be separate of the top shaft, 2 piece shaft. Maybe the old shaft is rusted in place.
