There was some discussion about fuel filters and thought I would post these pictures showing an original type filter, and an aftermarket paper element AC and on AC filter. Note the one on the left.

The original AC filter on the left was a GF-97 but seems to have been replaced by the # GF-149 at some point. The non-AC original filter was a GF-200. I don't think I have one of those or a picture.

The 2 filters on the right are the sealed AC type (WIX 33039) and the open top non-AC type (WIX 33034). In particular note the carboard base. When installed the gasket goes over this base and the glass goes on top of gasket holding everything in place........but......the bottom carboard will disentegrate and filter will float to bottom becoming useless. You can keep filter pressed up with a spring, but the base still disintegrates and it is probably a good idea to periodically replace.

Go back to the original type filter and look at how sturdy the base is with the steel ring. As they say, the just don't make things like they use to.

Hey guys hope you’re having a great day. I have a question about the choke heater tube. Mine is loose at the intake and seems to be causing a vacuum leak. Any thoughts on how to seal this up?

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…
