Re: 1966 Brake Booster

I WOULD, the diaphragm is a moving rubber bladder and if there is a sharp edge on the plastic remnant it may over time nick and cut it. I would attempt to unbolt the master cylinder and use some hymostats and try to remove the piece thru the opening. The shop manual, if memory serves, gives a cross ...

Re: Starter motor brushes.

Hey Karl, ask Davey if he has had a hot engine oil hair treatment recently?
Also tell him I will get him a "FOSTERS" his beverage of choice, :drinking: and that's Fair dinkum, plus remember, never take a video as you approach a border crossing into the U.S.A.

Re: Starter motor brushes.

Karl, first off, I have known Davey since 1991, if memory serves. Had him as a house guest back when, when he came over for a visit. Took him to Detroit FORD Museum and parts about here in Ontario. He is one funny BIG RED. Say high to him for me. In regard to brushes, let's get them to you first and...

Re: Heated carb spacer on ‘64

64Z; Also do not forget, the spacer also has a function of the PCV routing to the intake manifold at the rear of the spacer. This was discussed not to long ago on this Forum, look it up, and it may help in understanding its function. Also another thought, if you wish a fresh air/cool air under the h...

Re: Lower ball joints - food for thought.

Something to ponder; take a few minutes and look up on Google, specifications of bolts, grade 2, 5, and 8. Look up tensile and shear strengths, the numbers will amaze on the loads that these bolts can carry. A grade 2 bolt in a 1/4 inch size when installed and utilized correctly can have a tensile s...

Re: Starter motor brushes.

Karl; As I have done for Moin Abbassi in Pakistan, for his Brake Booster rebuild, I can probably do for you. If you can send me some specs on the brushes you require, I can possibly cross reference local manufactures and send a "care" package of what you need. I will need Width, opposite Width, APPR...

Re: Ignition switch & lock issue

First off do you have all items in hand? AND the items you have are correct. To my knowledge the key tumblers are the same body 61 thru 64 so are interchangeable from ignition switch to ignition switch, so you can rekey to have doors match the ignition. With this in mind, you should be able to take ...

Re: Ignition switch & lock issue

Rick, if I understand your question and this post does not go off in several different directions, The ignition switch assembly consists of 3 items, 1) the key tumblers, 2) the switch contacts and body, and 3) the wiring harness assembly which is part of the car harness. The ignition switch assembly...
