Re: Odd-ball 30 Pickup......

Looks like they did a decent job on it. I would like to have it as I need a pick up now and again. modernize the power train with a O/D and you will be good to go.

Re: 57 PS valve removal

Re: 57 PS valve removal

57 PS valve removal

Anyone know how to remove the PS valve from the pitman arm? Mine is stuck on there super super tight. This is on a station wagon.

Thanks,

Re: Original Intake Manifold

As long as the new one doesnít have cracks in it then go for it. That is assuming you canít fix your other manifold.

If there is no stamp on the tank you may be out of luck. Or there may be one on the floor board by the pass door. It could have sat for weeks before being mater to a frame. That is assuming you have...

Any 57 SF bay fairlane owners?

Hi All,

I normally post on the Model A forum but I may be buying a 57 fair lane 500 sedan. Are there any owners in the Bay Area that would be willing to let me come over so they can teach me?...

All I did was remove the front and rear bolts and unbent the long piece and I was able to remove it. But I have 60’s repo trim on the car so it may be different than the correct stuff.
