Re: Clutch replacement costs...

There are a number of antique car repair shops in your area. Give them a call. They should be able to give you an estimate. Not a bad job. I would not pull engine, but drop the rear end.

Re: Axel Shims.

Re: Fan cracked!!

I have had fan blade break while driving. Not a pretty thing under your hood.

Replaced with two blade aluminum, no problems since than.

I would just dump your old one in the trash.

Re: steering stabilizer

Comparing this conversation to different oils I think is wrong. The wrong oil will not lock up your front end!

Rebuild your front end completely and correctly. Don’t forget the front spring and...
