"It is a tension clip. A rectangle piece of flat metal with a notched hole. The metal grabs the pin. I get mine at Ace hardware. But a fastener store on line will carry them."

Neutral Switch issues

On a 1964 60 Special with a tilt wheel, tubro trans and #653 neutral switch.  When I had the transmission done the switch got out of alignment.  Now the car will start in Park, but not in Neutral, and the backup lights will not light.  If I move the switch so the car will start in Neutral, it will not start in Park, and the back up lights will not light.  If I move the switch so that the back up lights will light when in reverse, the car will not start in Park or Neutral.  Does this mean I need…See More

The valve guides can be replaced , and or , use what they call valve seals
They fit at the top of the valve guide ,under the valve springs ,and prevent oil from running down the valve stem ,especially on the pistons down stroke at the intake valve
Most machine shops that would do the work for you have that info

Fuel Pump Failure

Posted by Jon Shields on August 6, 2022 at 6:48am 4 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…
