New Water Pump - Only One Leak :+)

Posted on July 21, 2015 at 6:17pm 10 Comments

So I got this project all done - only broke 2 bolts.

Got everything all buttoned up and tested it.  I have a pretty strong leak - started as a drip but as engine got hot it turned to a spray - under the left lower bolt head on the outlet pipe.  No leaks at the pump itself (yet)

Of course, its the most difficult one to get at - will have to remove alt and oil pump upper mount just to get a wrench on it.  It is leaking at the bolt head - not at the mating surface on the…

So... I had this Rumbling sound....

Posted on July 3, 2015 at 5:33pm 26 Comments

Couldn't figure it out.  Thought it was my carrier bearing but it started sounding off when parked and idling. Invested $1.99 in a HF stethoscope and couldn't find NUTHIN.  Well, maybe its the Tranny.  Still didn't make sense (kinda like my gas gauge)

The other night I went for a ride with my wife and the rumble got REAL LOUD - REAL FAST.  Next was a bang and the sound of a 'part' clanging on the road - then steam and the smell of coolant.  Freak'n Great!

One of the blades on…

Electric Fuel Pump is next

Posted on January 24, 2015 at 1:26pm 20 Comments

Hi All

I have to drop my tank to adjust my sending unit.  While I'm at it I want to install an Electric Fuel pump - noticed that some of you have done this mod.  Eventually I'm gonna swap a 500 into my '63 so Now's as good as any.  I read a good post on ModCad that used an oil pressure switch as a safety - a good idea!

Wiring modern audio

Posted on October 9, 2014 at 8:23pm 7 Comments

Well, I got my window trim to 'click in' - just had to beat the snot out of it!  On to the next project - Audio...

My head unit calls for 3 wires and a ground (that's easy)

One to Acc. - that's on the fuse block - already used it for the air suspension

One to constant hot - I guess its to keep the setting from vanishing when the car is just sitting.  Where is the best place to tap that source?

And one to 'illumination' -  I guess that's the interior light dimmer…

I didn't do the bags. But I've replaced the rear ones. They basically go where our existing springs are. Then u have an upper plate and a lower cup. The airbag is samwiched  between. There r fittinngs on top that the hose goes into. Then its a matter of routing all our hose back to where u want ur valves and compressor's and tank. I run a I think its 8 valves. Just depends on how many separate bags u want to operate. Like I can deflate each separately or all at once or just the back or just the front. The only down fall is the front is so heavy u have to have the tank full to lift it . there's a couple relays and some other electrics stuff too. U can buy kits with everything if our interested.

64 Power Servo vacuum leak

Posted by Kent Prows on June 27, 2020 at 4:02pm 0 Comments

I finally got around to fixing a leak in my heater core.  I decided to check to see if there were any other obvious issues while I had everything torn apart.  When I put a vacuum directly (bypassing the transducer) to the power servo it gets to about 10" and then slowly leaks back to zero.  The fan will not go to full and the mode door will not open completely.  I have read a couple of other posts that said they repaired the power servo leaks.  How?  Does anyone have one to sell?  I just…
