I am having extreme difficulty trying to have my car shipped. My brother and I have gotten nothing but the run around from 2 companies. Can anyone recommend a decent auto transport company? My car is in Carlsbad CA and I need it shipped to Norfolk/Virginia Beach. Thanks

Thank you. I actually have been looking for mufflers so that is good to know. I am not a fan of headers. They’ve burned me too many times and are just hard to work around. My rear end is 3.21 Cadillac rear end. That’s why I was hesitant to give up the hydramatic, the whole drive train was from a 59 series 62 Cadillac. The motor is stock.  Like you said, it’s going to just roast the tires anyways.  I hear you about the glass packs. I’m 45, I like reasonably quiet now. That drone from two chamber flowmasters is hard to take for more than a few minutes. Thanks again

Fuel Pump Failure

Posted by Jon Shields on August 6, 2022 at 6:48am 3 Comments

Hello,

I'm located in Melbourne, Australia and my 64 sedan de ville is stuck in the garage due to failed mechanical fuel pump. The first after market mechanical fuel pump lasted a few years before it failed & left me stranded 5 hours from home. A hire car and tow got us home. On inspection, I noticed a valve not seated within the housing. I was optimistic, pressed it into place and assumed the pump was good to go. But alas, no. From what I can now determine, the diaphragm pushrod…
