Hood reconditioning fun

Posted on November 21, 2015 at 2:00pm 4 Comments

I can not leave my car alone. So the hood hinges, after having them chromed, were horrible loose and would bow out and not let the hood sit flush in the back, they needed to be rebuilt. I ordered the hood pins from Russ and rebuilt one side of the hinges, because I found I did really have to rebuild both sides. The holes weren't wallowed out, the pins were just loose, I think from the chrome company polishing as close the pin as possible and took too much material out. I decide to just…

vacuum locks

Posted on October 12, 2015 at 3:30pm 5 Comments

What should the vacuum be at for the door locks and trunk?

I am, at idle, around 18-20 inHg, but it does not seem to be enough to raise or lower the door locks or release the trunk. So I vacuum tested the drivers door and it checked out (no leaks/ held vacuum), still would not raise or lower lock, should the other doors be checked or do I just not have enough vacuum?

I am using the Powermaster signature series 140 amp Alternator, part number:37295 from Summit Racing

What alternator are you running with your upgrades?
At 6:54pm on May 30, 2013, Robert Collier said…

It was like night and day when I converted it from drum to disc. I did all four, but there are some very inexpensive ways to set up the front with junkyard parts and off the shelf parts. I went with ABS power brake Inc. they had the entire set up booster & master, lines, rotors, calipers, brackets, and hardware. I just wanted a complete setup with no issues of not having what I need or figuring out to fabricate it.

The air ride is not fully installed, I am trying to figure out where to set up the tanks and pumps in the trunk so that looks decent. I will most likely cover it all up anyway, but would still like it setup good.

Robert C I wasnted to ask about your disk brake and air ride conversions. I am currently searching for the ront of my 63 but i thought id ask about your setup. Do you like it? Does it perform well? Are they worth it to buy? Which brands are they? Thanks Vasili

64 Power Servo vacuum leak

Posted by Kent Prows on June 27, 2020 at 4:02pm 0 Comments

I finally got around to fixing a leak in my heater core.  I decided to check to see if there were any other obvious issues while I had everything torn apart.  When I put a vacuum directly (bypassing the transducer) to the power servo it gets to about 10" and then slowly leaks back to zero.  The fan will not go to full and the mode door will not open completely.  I have read a couple of other posts that said they repaired the power servo leaks.  How?  Does anyone have one to sell?  I just…
