  1. Steering gear and horn

    Anyone Know of a source for the correct rag joint?
  2. I recently changed out my leaking steering gear box for one from Lares. After completing I noticed my horns no longer worked. The lares unit came with a new rag joint, the original had a wire connecting the two sides of the joint. The lares joint does not. I put a jumper wire across the joint and the horns work. Should I have somehow rigged up a wire across this joint or is there another route for grounding the horns? What am I missing here?
  3. The insulators that line the lower support brackets for the radiator look like they are available from CARS for $8.50 ea (RI614-4). They are also listed at Steele Rubber (70-0963-31) for $21.00 ea. Anyone have a thought why steele rubber would be that much more expensive? Are they better or different in some way. Also will these same insulators work for the upper support? Thanks for any insight
  4. Undid the crimps on both of the diaphragms. The bottom membrane is torn and I think I could replace. The top diaphragm looks OK but there is a grommet/seal at the bottom hole that is shot. looks like some sort of a special seal. I will order the diaphragm from Old Air Products.
  5. The one you linked to at old air products looks different. Does it perform the same function?
  6. KongaMan I have that dual diaphragm removed from the air box on my 63. Of course I cannot find a replacement. I never thought I could repair this one.Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.
  7. When you send it to Booster Duey, don't let him talk you into gold clad. He told me gold clad was correct for a 63. I found out later that it wasn't.
  8. Bill Are you coming to the BttB event in Flint again this Year? If so bring the original alternator. We have a very good rebuilder near by. It will look like new when done. Mine only needed bearings and was $65.00
  9. Thanks. Just trying to get feel for $ on these
  10. What's the going price for a "nice" set of cast aluminum wheel covers. Also are they a pain in the butt to take care of?
  11. 63 wiper blade

    I don't need the arm just the blade. I think I can get the "rubber locally".
  12. Want to buy proper 18" wiper blades for my 63. Bring to BCA nationals if possible.
  13. On my what I believe to be original 63 a ground wire goes from rear horn bolt to fire wall.
