Thanks for your feedback on your rear seal repair
Was hoping you might have solved the problem for all of us
Back to the drawing board— as a bit of a leak from this seal looks like something the owners of our…"
"I think l have figured this out , Russ got it right , Felpro lists that seal from 59 to 62 and no listing till 69 , so my supplier has given me the earlier wrong seal , they are compensating me for seal and pan set , stil out my time and oil , and…"
Have you had any additional feed back on the rear main seal you installed that had a —one inch seal off set — off of the center line of the rear main bearing cap joint ?
That repair might be the first seal install…"
"Did you compare the new seal to the old seal? Last time I checked a few years ago, Felpro had the wrong seal. They had the 62 and earlier seal as the same for the 63 and up. The 62 seal is smaller and leaves a gap between the…"

Hi everyone, ever since getting the car back on the road, the rear brakes grab when they are cold and I’m moving at slow speed. Once I get along the road and stop they are fine. I see some posts…Continue

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…

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.
