Re: Preston “ALL VEHICLES” Antifreeze

Fisher Auto Parts in Louisa, VA carries it and there is a Fisher's in Troutville, near you, that should have it or can get it.

Re: Best Replacement Radiator

Is there a reference for the requirement to do an annual cold head torque? First I've heard of it!

Re: Leg room

I tried the 5/16 eye-bolt method and straightened the eyes out without bending the shifter!! Will a regular propane torch be hot enough or is acetylene required?

Re: Not enough power??

My horn was intermittent. I removed the light switch at the base of the steering column and wiped oil off of the round contact area between the switch and horn rod. It work fine now.

Re: Annoying rattle.

I have a heat shield mounted on the exhaust over the muffler. The rear mount broke and it made a strange noise/resonance until I discovered and repaired it.

Re: King Pin Retaining Bolts

I thought I read somewhere that the axle could properly be installed either way, but I certainly could be wrong.

Re: King Pin Retaining Bolts

I do have Firestone tires, but I'm thinking that if the turn stop nuts were on the back side of the axle as they should be, this wouldn't have happened.

Re: Soldering

Rosin core for electrical. Acid core is used for plumbing. Lead or lead-free will work. Lead-free has a slightly higher melting temperature.

Re: Steering Column Bracket

Thanks Tom. I'm prepared to make the adapter. It's the ability to get the nuts behind the panel for the attaching bolts that concern me. Hopefully the "U" nuts will facilitate that.

Re: Heater

Wick,


I didn't see your post until now. I didn't mean to ignore you. I'm at Lake Anna, about 50 miles west of Richmond. I found my car in Portsmouth.
