"you can time it without it running, so long as the battery is cranking it relatively well.   speed doesn't create the spark, grounding the voltage to the coil does, and that happens equally well at 10 rpm, better in fact.  "

Kim, I have a 63 Coupe Deville, all stock. I had the exact same problem and I know what you are going through. I have a 600 cca battery in my car. I firmly agree with the others about using the highest amp battery you can find. I have my timing set at 5 degrees. The fuel additive is what seemed to help the most . My engine was pre - igniting when hot and the stock starter just could not overcome it. As I mentioned the additive made the biggest difference. I cannot find the paperwork on my starter but if you google high torque starters you will find it. The cost was around $300.00.

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 1 Comment

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob

Car lift and jack stands

Posted by Les Eastling on March 23, 2021 at 10:00am 4 Comments

I mentioned during the 63/64 chapter zoom meeting on 3/21 that we had installed a car lift in our garage. Someone asked what kind and I didn't have the info at hand, so here is a link to it and also a link to some tall jack stands we use to add more stability to the car and an additional safety factor. There is something about getting underneath one of these cars that makes me a little nervous! …

Leaky Freeze Plug

Posted by Lee Martin on March 22, 2021 at 12:49pm 7 Comments

Just developed a significant leak coming from a freeze plug right over the starter.  Would this be considered a "cam plug" i.e. like Dorman 17616DS?  Our cars have multiple sizes of plugs on engine block and I want to get the right one.  Also, does anyone know how pricey this is for a shop to fix?  Thanks!
