    Auto repair shop owner.
  1. I have for sale, a very nice shop manual for : 1937 Oldsmobile, 6 & 8. Very clean. Copyrighted by Olds Motor Works, 1936. 247 pages. Includes 1937 Oldsmobile Mechanics Guide card. I do not know if this would be a reproduction, as that is not indicated in this book Just has the copyrighted information (date) on the first page. No handwritten notes, or greasy prints. Asking $20.plus postage. Thanks for your interest. David.
  2. Thanks all for your replies. Seeing as no further interest, parts went to the dumpster today.
  3. NTX5467, lump..... Thanks for the information. Parts are in original FoMoCo boxes from the early 60s. From a history of the shop, before I acquired it, I believe the parts were to be used on 60s Ford trucks, 3/4 -1 ton and larger. I just don't have an idea of the engine size/s that these pistons and rings might have been used in. Hate to throw them out if someone could use them. I'll list the part #s if anyone has an interest. Parts are free, just cost of shipping to an interested party.
  4. I have a number of FoMoCo piston/pin assemblies, and ring sets that were left on the shelves in my shop when I closed. Is there anyone here who could give an application (when furnished w/ part #s) as to possible year/years, and engine/engines displacement/s that the parts would have been used for? Most appear to be early to mid 60s part #s, with a '50s part or two thrown in the mix. Knowing what the year/application is, the parts might be useful to someone on this forum. Thanks, David.
  5. This thread is just another reason for us to list our location in our profile. Might help another member to verify a part/ location/individual when looking for parts/cars. Our forum members are always glad to help others in these situations.
  6. This should do it! My old shop wrecker.. .060 over 368 Lincoln, 2 speed rear. Holmes 850.
  7. I have a friend who had a Chevy LUV p/u years ago. His had a matching set of this type rim.
  8. Most of what I found (or did not find) was very rusty or completely missing.sheet metal, Did find city vehicle tax stamps from 1980-81 in the remains of the glove box. 1960 Edsel.
  9. Wanting to buy a front park/turn lens for a 1960 Edsel Ranger. Also needing the "button" that goes between the horn ring and the horn contact plate on the same car. Other Ford product cars/trucks may be the same. Thanks. David.
  10. Installed the turn signal switch from the previously mentioned '61, and it does like it should. Just have to sort the rest of the butchered wiring. Thanks to all for your help and suggestions. David.
  11. rick60.... I went to the salvage yard today, and pulled a switch from a '61 Fairlane. The switches are physically different, but mount the same as the '60. this '61 switch has a plastic cancelling cam, whereas the '60 switch was of metal. Should still work. Now to sort out all of the butchered wiring. Missing connectors, etc. Thanks for all comments and suggestions. David.
  12. cahartley.... Agreed that the switch looks really close. I'm going to check out the '61 Fairlane at the salvage yard, and see if it will work. I can compare the two side by side. I do have a new switch that we purchased for the '67-'68 Mustangs we had, but it cannot be made to work. Thanks, David.
  13. cahartley... Thanks for the link. That switch doesn't show to fit the 1960 full size Ford cars. Falcon, Comet T-Bird, truck are the applications, and C&G couldn't verify that it would be the proper application, even though the general part number would correspond with that in the master Parts Catalogue. I have located today a 1961 Fairlane 4 dr. that still has the complete column in it, and will go to see about it tomorrow. Thanks, David
  14. Want to buy a good turn signal switch for a full size 1960 Fairlane/Galaxie. The metal contacts in mine are broken, and a repair isn't possible. I can find the switch for Falcon/Comet, and full size Mercury, but do not know if they are interchangable with that in the Fairlane/Galaxie. Thanks, David.
  15. I currently have a '58 Bermuda 9 pass. (in restoration), a '59 Ranger 2 dr sed., and a '60 Ranger 2 dr. sed.(also in restoration/refurbishment). I've had other Edsels, but they have gone on down the road. David.
