Re: Does anyone recognize this car?

I just tried to open this post tag and a WARNING CORRUPT VIRUS ATTACK came up. Did it flag as a bad site to you?

Re: C6SB 13A350.6

I would agree, but it would mean that switch was dismantled, and in pieces. Is this possible, and do the rest of the pieces exist?

Re: Replacing Top Hoses/Cylinders/Pump - No Action?

Alan, I wonder if it would have been cheaper to have flown Jim W, Jim M or I down for the repairs?
One of us might have enjoyed a mini holiday on your tab. LOL

Re: 65 T-Bird Speedometer issues

Welcome aboard, and welcome to a problem that others have had! It is not a major issue, but there can be several causes for your problem. The cable may be ok, and the ODO gears can be aged and tired giving rise to the bouncing speedo. I could go into a long story of how the speedo works and the need...

Re: 1965 Expansion tank gasket??

To be honest Fel-Pro is not in the business of writing assembly manuals, or knowing which engine each customer is going to build with the different combinations and permutations of each application and its accessories. This is left to the motor builder, auto mechanic, knowledgable shade tree hobbies...

Where is the earliest EXISTING 1964 Thunderbird

I know that in the THUNDERBIRD REGISTRY that Cody Burch filed the paperwork to show that the VIN 4Y83Z100001 existed, but is unknown and only verified by documentation. BUT what and where is the earliest still existing mobile 1964 Thunderbird? I know that a list exists that was compiled of VIN numbe...

Re: 1965 Expansion tank gasket??

If you notice, the Fel-Pro gasket set is a multi fit set for "Numerous" applications. They will give you several for the expansion tank, depending on the need, plus several different exhaust manifold gaskets (fibre, metal coated fibre, etc) NONE which you should use, as they all fail, IMHO. Plus a c...

Re: Replacing Top Hoses/Cylinders/Pump - No Action?

If shop did as Jim M leads, I fully agree. Pump does not like dead head. Cylinders do not have a bypass system. Can stall the pump and cook the motor real quick!

Re: Replacing Top Hoses/Cylinders/Pump - No Action?

Alan, you say that when you connect battery power, the Main supply breaker appears to "trip", the only function it serves is to provide power to the trunk relay buss bars, for individual step functions. First thing I would do is to disconnect the Black 8 gauge wire feed at the Left hand relay bank (...

Re: How to R&R Brake Light Switch 63 Bird

Actually I think it was Benjamin Franklin who reportedly said it, if memory serves me correctly.
Einstein spoke of relativity; You can sit beside a pretty woman for two hours and it will feel like 2 minutes, but if you sit on a hot stove for 2 minutes it will feel like two hours THAT is relativity.

Re: Convertible top relay replacement project

Before purchasing a electronic replacement, you need to verify the fault with the existing top system. If the deck cylinder pins are removed, you are able to lift the lid and get in and observe the failure point, then correct the problem. Then replace the old mechanical relays and install the NEW el...

Re: 1964 Aluminum Seat Panels

Stubbie, I shipped Karl's brushes, and in doing so I quoted the cost to send the back panels, to get a ball park value. The number was around $100.00 Canadian dollars do to physical size not weight. A heavy price for an item that has no weight!!!!! I would try to repolish what you have.

Re: Ignition Switch Wiring Harness Replacement??

As I was indirectly trying to tell you, the locksmith would have to remove the tumblers from the doors to repin them, just swap the whole units. It would be simpler. Now comes the fun part, and I can be corrected by others as I am a Flair Bird guy. BUT there is a method to change the tumblers withou...
