A "Fix-It" for Split Windshield Washer Reservoirs that Seems to Hold!

I had seen JB Weld Plastic Bonder at the local Lowe’s store and read the reviews on Amazon, etc. and thought I would try it on 64 reservoir I just pulled off the last parts car which had a nice long 4 “ or so split at the seem. I made sure the jug was dry and clean and put a good amount down the seam, extended a bit past where the split started and ended. I was intrigued that it said it would cure tan and thought a light tan might actual blend in well with the aged ‘white” plastic which yellows a bit with age.

I let the glue cure for 2 or 3 days, set outside propped up with water almost to the top and let it set for about 2 weeks. It never leaked a drop!  If you look at the picture, it blends in pretty good with the color of the jug. I could have done some sanding and smoothing but since it faces in toward the firewall it is not going to be that readily seen ... not to mention it held water lie a boss!
 
SO... if you still have your reservoir jug and just have a split down the seam you might try JB Weld Plastic Bonder. See last picture below. 

Click Here to see it at Amazon.com but they have it at my Lowe’s and Home Depot stores.

This reservoir jug is on the way to a customer in Australia that had been in my Wait List for some time. 
 
If you try the JB Weld Plastic Bonder on your own jug, I would love to get some feedback. I feel confident enough to include this in our next Newsletter as a Tech Tip.

Posted by Matthew VanDeWater on June 22, 2021 at 3:03pm 1 Comment

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent  wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
