Re: ABS warning light

I had a similar issue. It was the big 30 amp fuse that had blown. Mine was under the hood in the fuse panel there.

Re: Harbor Freight changes

Re: sandblasting chrome rims

Second on Brians suggestion. Chrome shops remove all chrome before re-plating an item.

Re: Shoebox Brake Drum replacement

My '50 has drums just like the last picture you posted so I think they sent you the wrong ones. If you dont get any satisfaction from them, try Shoebox Central. Good luck.

Re: Chrome Shop Recommendations

I used Northwest Chrome in New Plymouth, Idaho last summer. I feel it was excellent quality. Cost is in the eye of the beholder. They did what they promised and was a short turn around in my opinion....

Re: Power steering cooler

These two coolers might not be car specific as one can buy coolers and install them on any vehicle. I put a PS cooler on my Dodge pickup back in the 70's. That being said I know some late 60's Fords...

Re: Did I finally find a GEM?

Very nice. I do believe the mats are original but I wonder about the red oxide underneath. Neither of my 50's have that but having said that, this is the straightest club coupe I have seen!!

Re: 12 Volt battery to fit '40

Yes the shut off switch goes on the neg cable. Mine will not fit the positive cable so it has to go on the correct post.

Re: Anti freeze

We always ran a 50-50 mix of antifreeze year around and block heaters on most of our cars and farm equipment. We would also put a light bulb next to the battery when it would get around 10 degrees or...
