Batwing Air Cleaner

Is anybody here running a batwing air cleaner? I've attached a picture. I just want to know if it clears the hood and the compressor as I'm hoping to get my A/C working again eventually. They do make a 7/8 size air cleaner and I was also curious if anybody was running that and if it fit better. See More

Help tips on how to veneer.

Goodday to you all. I am about to start restoring the wooden veneer on the doors and dashboard of my 63 Eldo Biarritz. Now i have managed to get a big part of veneer oft of the door and i think it is not the one from the factory. So I am looking for any tips on how to glue the new veneer on the door. The part I took off has on the back of the veneer some sort of aluminum foil. Is that used to neutralise the glue from the varnish? And what kind of glue do you use? what sort of varnish do you…See More

Dipstick seal

There appears to be some kind of felt washer around the top of my oil dipstick, presumable to seal off the dipstick tube. I've looked around the usual parts suppliers but came up empty. There's not enough let of mine to tell what it looked like, does anyone know a source for this part? Maybe it's not even original...

Loud air moving sound within carb with cleaner removed

Posted by Dave Fehrle on March 23, 2024 at 3:23pm 8 Comments

While checking my Carter carb with engine running, I took the air cleaner off and there was a very loud hissing sound of air. I placed a piece of paper over the carb and it didn’t move up or down, is this normal?

Vintage Air AC

Posted by Chase on March 21, 2024 at 5:55am 0 Comments

Hey everyone, has anybody done a Vintage Air AC/Heat setup in their car? I want to bypass the old vacuum setup and go with a Vintage Air Gen 2 model. Before I get started, does anyone have any experience with this? (Which model to go with, do’s and dont’s, etc.) It looks pretty involved. Any and all info/pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks

'63 Eldorado trumpet horn + 2 standard horns restoration

Posted by Les Eastling on November 15, 2023 at 10:34am 1 Comment

My son, unbeknownst to me, had all three of the horns on our 1963 Eldorado completely restored. We had recently added the Eldorado trumpet horn to the two standard horns and the sound was not very good... we had heard good ones so we knew something was not right... but there was not much we could do to get better sound from the 3 horns. 

There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…
