  1. Thanks, I will check out the SPI products.
  2. They are looking good but I was in my local PPG paint and body supplies store a few years ago while in the midst of patching the rear quarters on a Rambler. I told the guy at the counter that I was trying to block sand epoxy primer on the repair (PPG DPLF 50 to be exact) and the guy at the counter and two other customers in the store said almost in unison: You are not supposed to block sand epoxy primer. So what sandpaper are you using? Wet sanding?

    With a full reading on the gauge you might have an inadvertent ground somewhere in the system, not a bad or disconnected ground.

    Looks like a lot of fun.
  5. 1913 REO

    You're gonna be thinking about that car while you try to fall asleep each night, I think.

    Metro Molded parts has a pretty extensive catalog of various types of weatherstripping, with many of the profiles shown along with dimensions. You can order a printed catalog from their website or browse profiles online. Joe
  7. 1963 Buick Special "Pinhead"

    I think that is supposed to be a "1" but was mis-struck. See for decoding your VIN. Joe
  8. If you google, The AMC Forum you can join that group. There are several people on the forum who will gladly help answer your questons. I do have several older Ramblers but I do not have one with the automatic transmission feature you describe. Joe
  9. 65 american fuel tank substitute!

    I have also used a 65 Mustang tank on a 65 Rambler American. Yep, it works, but some modifications are needed as you mentioned.

    Perhaps the quoted reference was to lye, but electrolysis is usually done with washing soda ( sodium carbonate). The lye might have been useful for parts where all of the oil and grease had not yet been removed.
  11. Your before and after pictures are always a delight.

    please ask Greg how much horsepower and torque was generated by the OX-5?
  13. 1953 Nash Ambassador custom 252 cid

    I thought you could order rings like that from Egge Machine, just by giving them the ring sizes.
