Just noticed a NSS on ebay for $39.99 Looks like for a TH400 w/o tilt. This would be a #652 I think. I have no interest in this item; maybe somebody could use this.

I repaired a nss on a 1970 Ford wagon with a deck screw shank. I drilled a hole slightly larger than the shaft size of the screw into the broken fork. I aligned it to be the same width as the broken forks gap. I then cut off the threads of a deck screw so I just had the shaft left and epoxied it in the hole. Once it was set I zipped off the head to the proper length and it was good as new. I think I've repaired nss, in one way or another in every old vehicle I've owned.

Robert Alan Shannon, thank you for your kindness in buying that switch, that is much appreciated. Jason has air mailed a plastic "fork" that is in good condition and when it arrives here, I will try to fit it into my NSS but if that fails, I will be in contact with you to see if you still have it. One AU$ buys just under US$0.80 at the moment, and the exchange rate has been rising over the last few days.

Cheers.

Sorry Tony I didn't mean to sound doubtfull of your epoxy comment. I should have said cheap dollar store epoxy isn't alcohol proof. Ask me how I know lol.

John Smith, that NSS came up again on ebay couple days later, and I bought it. The channel is broken (didn't say anything about that). But it tested good ,the vacuum function is so so. I see you're in Australia ,pay shipping and $40 US ,you can have it . I have no idea what that would be in your dollars

I though your comment about epoxy and gasoline was a bit odd to me especially since i introduced you to JB weld to fix ( gasoiline related ) something you were repairing
Do you know something about epoxy i am missing that you choose to share ?

Enjoy

You can use epoxy to repair gasoline fuel pumps when needed as i did on my porsche engine
A very permanent fix

Enjoy

From my own experience using epoxies and CA glues for 23 years building and flying radio control aircraft most epoxies i have used are gasoline and alcohol proof
I will quailfy my statement to read --Most --epoxies are gasoline and alcohol
Proof but all i have used have both qualities
The fuel for the engines is metanol which is an alcohol base and we use epoxy to protect the fuel tank areas with epoxy from absorbstion into the Balsa wood
I have never used an epoxy that does not have both qualities

Tony not all epoxy is gasoline proof. Definitely not all alcohol proof. Probably the cheaper stuff.

Comment by Jason Edge on January 11, 2018 at 10:58am

Tony, The repairs are for the channel, not the fork that slides back and forth. Here is the link: - Neutral Safety Switch Repair by Anders and Russ Austin

There are posts on this site and that explain how to repair a NSS with JW weld epoxy ( a metal infused epoxy that is super strong )
Use the 6 hour drying time for best results
The product has a lot of good uses and it is gasoline proof ( as is all epoxy ) which is a unique quality when needed

Enjoy

Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert.  I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

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

Hi.

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

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…

I would like to upholster my caddy back to original.   Does anyone know where I can look at some pictures or photos.  Also, how hard is it to remove the dash?  thanks
