"use the ones from Switzerland ". Wrong! The Swiss don't make ball bearings. Its Sweden the best ball bearings come from. I know its hard for Americans to understand the difference between Switzerland and Sweden. Both are in Europe but only one in European Union (guess the looser!).
SKF = Svenska Kullager Fabriken = Swedish Ball bearing Factory.
Well said Clovis !!!! I'm in Australia and have had my moments with parts for the two 63's I have had to buy parts for ??? The only parts I really know are going to fit straight off are what I have bought from Jason or Russ !!! Cheers.
This community is very fortunate to have Jason Edge. The rare combination of knowledge,dedication ,selflessness does not go un-noticed. I am a long time 61/62 owner and visit this forum a lot due to the work that Jason has put into this forum. I have bought parts from Jason and I appreciate his skills
Although I owned my '63 for just a short time, the new owner is a loyal customer for whom I have built several cars. Therefore, I have had the distinct pleasure of restoring and future servicing of this magnificent automobile, and will have another one day for myself (as soon as I find another great deal). I would surely still be trying to figure some things out if I had not stumbled across this site with all of the info everyone shares here. I am about to turn the Series 62 convertible over to the customer as the re-construction is nearly complete. But I will still visit this site to read through the forum. I thank everyone for the help and conversations to get me through this one, and I will look forward to my next 63-64 caddy!
