Re: Alternator splash shield

Alan, I knew it was a masticated rubber sheet, but was using MASTIC as a short form for communication purposes. I think Karl was also. We will take your correction under advisement, thanks for the reminder that sometimes short forms could .cause embarrassment or incorrect understanding of materials ...

Re: Alternator splash shield

Karl, I can price anything simply by giving them a call, I will just need the respective parts number. Did you check the full catalogue for the mastic clip or only the one I found in Section H? If so I will check that specific clip. I am planning on going to Speanaur in the near future, but am not i...

Re: Alternator splash shield

This is what happens when two bodies are responding at the same time. I type in a response and end up late and Jim W answers to solve the problem.
Still willing to go to Spaenaur if you need anything, will hold back until let me know

Re: Alternator splash shield

Karl, for the clip to retain the Mastic panel, a company close to my home has possibly what you need. (40km). The company name is Spaenaur, and they are located in Kitchener Ontario Canada. I normally go on Google and just do a search on their online catalogue. I did a quick check, and they have a c...

Re: Digital Relays

Johns units are not DIGITAL they are a mechanical replacement which requires you to cut off your existing wiring harness plugs and terminate the wire ends in a Din rail. The system works as others have used the system, but are not a electronic replacement. The only person who has manufactured a true...

Re: Clarification on motor/trans pull EDIT followup on pull both ways, photos

To all, each of us have our own way of engine/tranny removal. Me, I prefer to do the SPLIT method. Reasons; more control with the engine hoist (trolly jack/ A frame lift/ what ever term you wish to use) when the motor is above the engine bay, and you go to move it, the centre of balance is "up there...

Kelsey Hayes Tru Spoke Rims

I have access and listing of 2 sets of ORIGINAL Kelsey rims. 8 rims in total. 4 in very good condition, requiring detailed cleaning, and 4 which were media cleaned with, it appears to be a "VERY MILD" abrasive/acid wash. The 4 that were cleaned with the media have a low sheen, and probably require r...

Re: 2 questions - fuel hoses and the ignition system

Actually Terri you are mistaken about the ignition resistor wire. It is a full time non changing resistor wire and does not change resistance as temperature or time changes. It is not like the power wires for the window motors. If you read your electrical schematics, there are two power feeds to the...

Re: hi temp sealant

Its funny to think that you do not remember what year your Hard Top Convertible was. Be it a 62 or a 64, the two years were Unique and Different. hahaha. Its strange that a Corporation like HONDA and their level of technology have not perfected a method of adhesion for their hood pads, where compani...

Re: 2 questions - fuel hoses and the ignition system

Why Pertronix needs 12v, or why the standard ignition is dual voltage? and there is a resistor wire.

Re: 2 questions - fuel hoses and the ignition system

One small point to note, with the Pertronix unit, is to remember about the resistor wire in the wiring harness within the dash, and how it is tied into the ignition switch.
The Pertronix unit requires 12v full time, vs the car original system was a dual voltage setup.

Re: Rear suspension tips 64-66/EDIT Mike Eaton of Eaton Detroit Spring video technical info and mod mistakes

Not trying to be negative, but I truly think a good look in the SHOP MANUAL, would help you out. Look in section 17-1 pg 17.7 it explains lifting, Frame Contact points and such. It will give you the most supportive points on the car. Secondly using Acetone as a solvent to desolve ATF for a penetrati...
