Re: convertible top problem

My 63 SR with new convertible pump takes about 1 minute to fold up and 1 minute for top down, give and take 2 - 5 sec. so your result seems pretty OK what I understand. Here's a link to my movie on the sequence.

Re: Air pressure in Wireweels and Radials

Thanks for your quick response, 35 psi equals 2.4bar, it's just a little more than I've had so far, so I'll try to increase a little up to 2.4 bar / 35 psi as soon as summer comes, but yesterday we got 6 "(15 cm) of snow here, so summer is going to take a while longer😀
Best regards. Lennart

Air pressure in Wireweels and Radials

Hi everyone, I have a question for anyone who has wireweels with radial tires on their Thunderbird. How much air pressure should you have in the tires, (American Classic 215/75 -14 with inner tubes), it is a Thunderbird 63 SR.
Thanks. Lennart Sahlin / Sweden

Re: Radial Inner Tubes - Factory Wire Wheels

Thanks for the nice pictures Mr Tast, now I see that you have taped all the way to the outer edge where the tire sits, and it seems to have worked for you,Good to know. I allways thought it would be too thick with the tape there, but it seems to have worked for you what I can understand. Thanks / Le...

Re: Speedometer drive gear replacement

Hi AK1961, I've switched the driving gear on a 1964 Thunderbird once and it went smoothly. (1963 and 1964 are the same at that point) You do not even need to drain the oil from the pan. As you said, you need to lower the rear of the box and support it, and take down the driveshaft ofcose. Remember t...

Re: Noisy power steering

Thanks for your tips about the filter NM63Tbird , very interesting, I'll try to reduce the spring pressure on the filter (which is very big in my case). And maybe try without filter, then my filter is new. I have noted that many have removed their filters in their containers! One might wonder why ma...

Re: Noisy power steering

I also have problems with noise in the servo pump, switch from type G to type F oil and aired according to the manual. The noise went away for a little while, but after a week or so the pump started to drip oil when I stopped the engine. I then ordered a new pump and pressure line from Rock Auto tha...

Re: Watch out when installing aftermarket wire weels.

Trust me, I've learned the hard way. :-)
Note, aftermarket rims have spokes covered with silicone from the factory.
But keep in mind that you must remove all the sticker on the inside of the rim as well. ::?

Watch out when installing aftermarket wire weels.

When checking my wire weels for imbalance, I discovered a problem with my brand new Reproductions K-H-style Wire Weels for Thunderbird ( 14”) that I bought at Thunderbird Headquarters about 14 years ago, but only now mounted on my 63 SR . The center hole in the rim has a diameter of 63.5 mm (2.5 "),...

Re: Some remaining parts after completion of the project.

Some remaining parts after completion of the project.

Anyone who knows where these trim pieces should be on 63 SR?
Probably somewhere inside the car, I think. ::?
