Re: Need a fresh look, please!

Chances are the capillary tube bulb is affixed to the evap coil in the plenum in a location to detect if the coil is super cooling and/or icing up and cycles the compressor, to act like a thermostat. If the evap coil gets to cold and ices up (Blocks up with snow and ice to the point no air can pass ...

Re: carb linkage problem

Well, its sad to say but FORD never made the car for you to change it from stock, for which you have done. Since you modified the car, then you will have to modify the linkage to suit. This will mean, either making the vertical arm "taller" or shorter to allow a "longer" or shorter travel swing to g...

Re: '64-'66 Solid State Convertible Top Relay Replacement

For anyone who attended the Nationals in Atlanta in 2017 or Tulsa in 2018, I had Generation I and Generation II on display for viewing. I have had both versions in my car for test running and sales when not showing my car in SENIOR CONCOURSE. There have been no issues or problems with these units, a...

Re: Expansion tank

Not knowing the size of their facility, but receiving an order at 4 o'clock, then running it thru the cash desk, finding a box, wrapping it, creating a ship label and Puro label, c/w contact p/u cut-off time; if necessary, plus do the normal counter business and e-mails/phone calls. I might think it...

Re: Expansion tank

Are you saying they missed the shipping dead line for the day, or they do not want to ship to you at all, and do not want your business?
Maybe they are concerned that the shipping company will abuse the package and you will receive it in a damaged condition, which they are trying to avoid.

Re: my 66 shuts down mid flight

Do a SEARCH under "IGNITION FAILURE" with info of 64/66 area and RAVEN as Author and read my post dated Oct 5/18.
It may help or give ideas to direct you to solve your problem. It is a shot in the dark.

Re: 66 leaf springs

If the Bird Nest is now under ownership of Mac's there is trouble in our future. When it comes to certain repop items any one of the suppliers are the same. One manufacture, multiple sellers, very close pricing, shipping separates the boys. On other things, the service sells the price and product. I...

Re: Power steering

Shop manual page 3-36 section "Steering" Fluid 1.6 pints (Approx)
Gotta love the book!
In real life I think that is a little off, but it is a start. Figure you have to fill the pump/ steering box and the wiper motor and vent the air.
Better 1.6 pints than dry and burn a part.

Re: 66 leaf springs

Methos; in your post you state if I read you correctly that the Bird Nest is Mac's (Ecklers out of Florida) . ARE YOU CORRECT or am I miss reading you? Please explain. I have dealt with both and neither have worked in the same fashion in customer service or quality, One can not say they are the same...

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.

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