Re: Tbird Appreciating Day

If my 66 had a soul, which I imagine, some of us could argue their's does, though getting back to if mine had a soul, it should show its appreciation, for me having kept it, from the rusted out junk pile.

Re: Fresh air door?? Water in floorboard?

Repairing the vents is a job and a half, if just the passenger side a job an a quarter, once you have the "stovepipe" removed, check for rot and holes where the stovepipe meets the body.

Re: Transmission cooler hoses

I was thinking possibly the hoses could be hooked in any order, so I attached the line that is higher up to to the upper part of the cooler and the lower to the bottom of the cooler, seeing that is the way the radiator itself flows, makes sense,no?

Re: 1964 tbird passing inspection

In some states including mine (RI) registering the car as a antique skips the need for inspection.

Re: Transmission cooler hoses

I was wondering which pipe from the trans. would be the input and which one would be the return, reading the replies, I tied them in to the radiator, using the line from the front of the trans. as the input.

Re: 1965 Headlight Switch - dimmer question

If you do replace your light switch, don't go for the cheaper one you can buy at the auto part stores, the rod on the switch for the most part does not go all the way in, like the OEM's.

Re: Replacing the Radiator and what Coolent to use.

My original engine radiator had a gear fall on it, having been soldered in the past and a recent soldering I had done, when I brought it to the radiator shop, the owner said with all the soldering that had taken place the engine would run hot if any more soldering was done. Bottom line a new copper ...
