      Electrical done. Well, almost done. The right turn signal doesn't work. Next up. retrieve the speedometer gear off of the parts car after removing transmission. Ford used a torque tube rather than a...

      That particular piece is cast Zinc. I soak just about everything in mineral spirits.

      That looks about right. Someone elsewhere suggested pressing a ball bearing that's slightly larger than the hole into it in a vise. That would flare it out enough to capture the washer.

      I could have repaired the emergency brake cable. Winding new springs onto the cable didn't work. They lost their tension and stayed compressed the first time I pulled the emergency brake. I could...

      Back home. $15 in shipping and handling and ready to install on the trans in preparation of it being installed in the car.

      They don't charge for the mold. The thought is that it's kinda unfair to stick the first guy with that cost when it can be recovered over time.

      The Ruxton motor mounts were quite simple, but they...

      BTW, Mike is lurking in the background and thanks you very much for your kind words.
    11. President Barry, I like that.

      President Barry, I like that.
    12. Vulcanizing restored motor and transmission mounts.

      I decided to post this separate from the '42 Zephyr thread as I think people with more recent cars could benefit from knowing about this process.

      I used "Then and Now" http://www.then-now-auto.com...

      No deadline, but I do have a couple of Concours interested in it for next summer.

      After a thorough inspection I'm convinced that the '47 is a parts car so I have no problem with doing the equivalent of a dumpster dive for spares. This car's pretty far gone.

      I have to take the...

      They claim they never really know what they are going to get when they come out of the oven. They send me digital images to choose from, but the manifolds ended up nothing like the sample.

      Jet-Hot color problem.

      This is supposed to be medium gray. Clearly, the manifolds have a baby blue tint. They want to get it right, but this is the set's third trip.

      If you've used them what color did you choose that...

      The man has impeccable taste in cars. I'd say he's got an eye for color, too.
    18. Fundraiser for the Society of Automotive Historians --- Garage Tour

      It was held at the Larry Smith collection. I've seen a lot of Larry's cars at various events and in one of his storage buildings, but I had no idea the depth and breadth of his collection. A few are...

      After a lot of consideration I'm going with my first thought and use blackballs to add to the no-frills aspect of this near-luxury vehicle.

      The transmission mount is being vulcanized this weekend....

      I kept my old '88 750iL as a dog limo. If it sat overnight the suspension would bleed down and the 15 year old malamutes could nearly walk into the back seat. Now we have no dogs, but still have the...
