  1. 1954 century sedan. GA to NC

    With a full reading on the gauge you might have an inadvertent ground somewhere in the system, not a bad or disconnected ground.
  2. Avanti R2, 1963, refresh

    Looks like a lot of fun.
  3. 1913 REO

    You're gonna be thinking about that car while you try to fall asleep each night, I think.
  4. 1950 MACK Model A-20

    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
  5. 1963 Buick Special "Pinhead"

    I think that is supposed to be a "1" but was mis-struck. See for decoding your VIN. Joe
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. My "new" 1916 D45

    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.
  9. Your before and after pictures are always a delight.

    please ask Greg how much horsepower and torque was generated by the OX-5?
  11. 1953 Nash Ambassador custom 252 cid

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

    It is June, Jon but you are forgiven. The Cub Cadet hardly looks used.
  13. Need help installing a transmission

    Just be sure the modified bolts are not long enough to collide with any protrusion(s) on the sides of the transmission or shifter parts (if it has a side shifter). I made that mistake in the past.
