He did the alignment on my 64 a w...

Re: 1961 Brake Booster

Glad I was of help and it was nothing any one of us in the Club will do to keep another Bird flying. It was a pleasure, especially where the Bird is on the other side of the World.

Re: Throttle Stop Issues

Do not know which is better -40' C in the Great North or + 40' C in Tulsa OK from last summer...

Re: Weather stripping sources

Welcome to the FORUM. Nice looking car and best of luck with the build. Your MY car will be a challenge to pick up some items, as not a lot of repop has been carried out do to lack of demand. From your Web ID you appear to live in an area of rust free body sources, which will be an advantage, and on...

Re: Wrong name?

I have had this happen to me several times also. I have experienced it over the last 2 years and have notified Yoda everytime it has happened.
He is aware, but I believe he should be flagged when it happens so he can track it and possibly find the Gremlin.

Re: Carb cleaner

Depends what you call to pricey. KLEEN FLO Carb Cleaner, seems to be a decent product that comes in a 4 litre can, is readily available over the counter here in Canada, and is not watered down. It cuts through carbon build up with a little bit of soaking time. There is one draw back with the solutio...

Re: Aluminum seat trim

I have restored several grilles over the years and have just used pop rivets, and a little black paint, no one sees them in the shadows unless they really are looking hard and specifically for them.

Re: Aluminum seat trim

AGREED! Scott, If I did not know better I would say you have an NOS grille! The quality of refinish equals that of one. Your picture speaks volumes. Paul; in regards of the painted parts. The "U" channels which hold the slats and the end brackets with the wings which the riveted ends of the stats ar...

Re: Aluminum seat trim

Actually, all of the slats' surfaces are anodized, it is a dipping process. The slats get a different finish texture, some areas are polished, some are a matte finish, some parts are painted over after assembly, and yes rivets are used! The factory even numbered the slats so the boys on the line wou...

Re: 1961 Brake Booster

In essence it is the atmospheric pressure on the back side of the diaphragm which applies the brakes, and this is caused by the vacuum (negative pressure) on the front side of the diaphragm, allowing the pressure to move the diaphragm. By releasing the vacuum (turning the vacuum off) the pressures a...
