If  you have a decent interior shop willing to work with you they should have multiple sources and should be able to come very close to original.  I deal with a very reputable auto interior shop here in Raleigh NC that's been in business since 1973 and they matched it very well on my 64 CDV back when I replaced the carpet. I just took him a sample of the cut pile from beneath the seat and they matched up to a cut and color that was very close.

Be prepared to wait 6 months or more when dealing with SMS and expect them to send you wrong or dirty materials at least once... It's probably safer (but for sure it's a lot faster) to just go to Oregon and pick up your stuff in person.

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.

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…
