Radio antenna

Where should the antenna go on a 57 Fairlane 500? I have seen sweep type in the center of the trunk lid but that doesnt appeal to me.

Re: Scam alert

When ever I list something and get replies, I always look at the profile if it's new I walk away. This is bad for newbies but we have to do what we have to do.

Re: Electric choke

Thanks that is what I was looming for. I think if I slow down the fast idle a bit it will help, then I will lean the choke a tiny bit at a time.

60hp

Is there much difference between 38 and 40 sixty horse engines? Neither is a tin side.

Re: Transmission swap

Got it working. Shifts a bit erratic at some different speeds, I need to back off the throttle a bit then it shifts. Kind of like a manual with overdrive.

Wiper assembly

I would like the wiper mechanical mechanism for a 58 Fairlane so I can convert my 57 to electric wipers and not have to deal with the cable and tensioner

Engine block

I ran across a 24 stud block with L2101 cast into the back of the block. Can anyone help narrow this down? According to Van Peldt it is an 8ba, going by the water jacket casting holes

Re: Transmission swap

Raman and rotowrench you are correct. It only shifts once unless you drop down to low gear at takeoff. Problem is starting out in drive it won't shift. We have reworked governor and throttle with...

Re: Fordomatic late shifting ('57 thunderbird)

I'm by no means a transmission expert but to me that bracket does not look bent. It is straight and parallel to the piston. Can it be rotated so as to contact the linkage at another spot or is it...
