Cruise Control - Perfect Circle

Because the lower "keyed" cable from the transmission to the power unit (Jason, thanks for the pic) is so rare and (I think) expensive and is not reproduced, I found a way to solve the problem and get this thing started. I bought a reproduced "upper" cable (power unit to speedometer) in the States and got another good used original (long) speedometer cable for free of a parts car from a friend of mine, to build one, that's fit on the connections either the power unit and the tranny. But the…See More

Flashers

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 2 Comments

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?

Thanks

Norm

Fuel loss in Carburetor

Posted by Ian Osborne on December 29, 2018 at 11:24pm 16 Comments

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.

The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
