Re: Removing Brake Hose

If you can slide the correct size box wrench over the loose end, use that. Six point one would be best.

Re: Oil filter missing

Not sure if an oil filter was standard in 1951. You can get away without it if you change the oil on regular basis, at least every 3,000 miles or at least once a year, regardless of mileage

Re: Accepting cash for car sale

I agree taking a bundle of cash on a Friday night is risky. However, I would accept it if the banks were open and I could immediately put it in my safe deposit box (so no reporting to the Feds)

Re: Heating up a block to get stuck dizzy out

As far as the up/down movement, there are specs on this. Believe it is in the shop manual

If it's a later distributor, you will not see the advance springs shown in the above pictures.

Re: ballast resistor

On the Birds, the resisitor was mounted on one of the bolts hold the coil to the intake, right near the distributor. Original looked like this. I assume the sedans used the same one.

Re: R & R Distributor?

There is supposed to be a 'washer' on the shaft located between the pump and the block so the shaft will not pull out.


It can be somewhat of a pain to line up the hex drive and get the rotor...

Re: high / hard brake pedal

If you cannot get free play with the eccentric, it might be a small plastic cup that goes on the end of the rod. Sometimes the cup does not come out when the rod is removed and re-installation of...

I have just the canister if you decide to go that route. No other parts that go with it.

Re: Need color-coded spark plug wires for 59AB.

You might check with some one like Narragansett (SP??) wire, Rhode Island Wire or Tyree Harris. They can make up wires to your specs

Re: Fender Skirt Seals

Some of the colors were 1958 colors. The 57 Birds were built up to mid December 57 when 58 car production was going on and the 58 Tbirds were not ready for production
