Re: Curious as to what this Plug is

Joe, is there no reference to the wire in the Osborne manual? I am away currently, but will check when I return.

Re: roadster tonneau cover. oem or repro?

The one I have access to, which is in a garage at a home I am currently staying at right now, in BC, has an unfinished underside, which is unpainted, smooth (No rough sharp fibre strands) but is visible glass fibre. There is a very "thin" resin top coat, and the owner cannot prove it to be a TRUE To...

Re: clunky steering shaft in reverse

Just for the heck of it, try grounding the steering box to the unibody with a jumper. You did say you reinstalled the jumper on the rag joint. It may simply be a poor ground.

Re: Brake bleeding

I recommend that everyone go back and reread this post from the start as items are just going around again, and small things are getting missed. The brass block is pipe thread, and basically is a one time use per rotational location. Every time you tighten it the block needs to turn a little more, d...

Re: Art's Restored '66 Convertible

I saw this article post when you first published it about 3 weeks ago when you forwarded it to Jim Mills, Jim Wulf, Alan Tast, and Marty B. I knew of the build awhile ago, and have watched from the side lines. It is nice to see the project has come together. It would be nice to see it at a VTCI meet...

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...
