Carolina CLC Region Joint Meet-Up at Carolina's Aviation Museum & Billy Graham Library - Jan 13, 2018

Yesterday I traveled to Charlotte NC to meet up with the Carolina Region at the Carolinas Aviation Museum, and then headed over to the Billy Graham Library complex down the road for lunch.  A highlight was definitely seeing the "Miracle on the Hudson" A32-214 Airbus that Capt Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger flew into the Hudson River in 2009.  Some of you may have seen the movie Sully, starring Tom Hanks and directed by Clint Eastwood, that came out in 2016. I was also very impressed with the Billy Graham Library complex, especially going thru the restored Graham Family Home.  Regardless of your religious affiliation he is a huge historical figure in American Culture and was impress with how it was presented.

So,  here at a few pics from yesterday:

And a few from the Billy Graham Library and Home
This is the Graham Family House, built in 1927. The house was moved twice from its original location—just four miles away—and reassembled brick-by-brick, board-by-board. It’s now open to the public.

Here's one of me with the Billy Graham Library Building in the background.  That building is bigger than it looks! Very cool place.

I really enjoyed the Billy Graham house, built in 1927, and moved to current library location brick by brick and board by board. Things like the ice box you see below are just super cool to me.  I've went through Graceland (built in 1939) at least a dozen times and sort of reminded me of that house and had the same Southern Charm.

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…
