'63 CDV Restomod on Iron Resurrection on Velocity Channel

I just watched an episode of a show called Iron Resurrection on Velocity Channel. They did a restomod on a pretty clean survivor '63 CDV for a customer. They did an LS3 swap, air ride, complete rechrome and custom paint, etc. It came out very nice and they are real pros but I would hate to be faced with the bill for all that.See More

Hydra-Matic Breather Tube

I have a slight issue with the vent or breather tube on my '63  Jetaway. The way it is now configured certainly doesn't appear to be stock. I searched here and looked in the shop manual and can't find any info.Does anyone have any photos or info of what the correct setup looks like? I was told by a knowledgeable transmission mechanic that a small tube comes out of the tranny case, runs upward and then loops back down to create a vent that will not siphon. Any info would be appreciated.See More

Haven't been here for a while and looking for some parts

Posted on March 30, 2013 at 1:06pm 3 Comments

Hello,

I was a member sometime back when the format was different. I reproduce the door pull courtesy light lenses used in the '63 coupes. I sold a few to members back then and received a few requests for the rear lenses. I would like to start doing those now but need to get a pair of the lamp housings they fit into. If it is alright I would offer them for sale here. I try to sell them at a price that works for both me and the buyer. I am not trying to get rich, just make a…

HVAC Vacuum Valve Clip-need the one for the Power Control side

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 17, 2018 at 8:15pm 6 Comments

Hi.

Update:

I removed both 7 nipple vacuum valves and called my buddy who owns a machine shop. Tomorrow we'll re-surface the valve faces and then I'll reinstall them. HOWEVER, the one that comes out easily and comes apart with no rivet is on the Power module side. It installs on one side with a small bolt, and on the other it is held on by a clip, WHICH IS MISSING ON MY CAR. I am going to assume it is the same clip that is used on the Control Module side. Anybody got one? Happy…

7 vacuum valve-need a good one or someone to recondition mine

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 15, 2018 at 5:44pm 12 Comments

So, I've put my 7 vacuum valve from the control head side to the test, and it failed. I looked at the instructions for re-conditioning it and unless I am missing something, the instructions are missing something (about how to take off the clip that provides the tension that holds the two pieces together). 

In any case, I can't do this particular repair so I am looking for a new valve (not likely), or a good re-conditioned one, or someone who has done this before and would do mine for…
