"The coating on the head bolts and other engine bolts could be an ant- seize compound which is a good practice  I do not see any metal fragments from wear on the inside or the heads myself  Enjoy "

"Could that grey stuff be some kind of anti-seize material used by previous owners? There is no grey stuff in oil pump and not in oil pan. Cam, crank and bearings are in good condition."

"Thanks Mark! I was wondering what is that grey stuff here and there. It is not only those long bolts but in many places in heads and the block.  The bearings do not look much worn though. I need to check the bearing clearances. The block has…"

I just wanted to say a thank you to Kurt for steering me to the tech tips page on V.I.N. locations.  Excellent information.  Thanks a bundle.

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.

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
