Just ordered new tires for my 63. 
As the front wheels have reasonable wear I want to align them or at least 
have them aligned, but not sure if the alignment data in our shop manual 
are still the right ones for the radial tires today?

Gutenberg Morgen Sammy,

camber radials: Left 0 degrees and Right 1/4 degrees

caster radials +2 degrees 

toe in no more than  1/8

had mine done last month ,came out really good. Good Luck 

Caster angle really positive?

For the camber it says 1/4 or 1/2 more positive on left side.

So it's different to recommendations in the shop manual.

How did you determine the values?

 Guten Morgen, sorry Sammy .my German is terrible 

Yes 

Sammy, check out the help section,look up alignment. You’ll see that there where other members who had alignments done with those adjusted numbers that have been successful for these cars with radial tires. It worked for me 

Thanks. I'm still a rookie at forums in general.

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

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…
