    I am in need of the transmission interrupter switch. For some reason the one that is currently installed has 2 prongs on the top instead of only one. The transmission and engine were fully rebuilt before I acquired the car and this is what was on it. And I can't afford the close to two hundred bucks some people want for theirs. I'll just have to wait for a break or for someone wanting to trade out for another part I may have.

    Would be easier and cheaper to get the correct carb than to change transmissions. Besides having the correct functionality. As you see I was in the same predicament

    Yes I did get the correct carb. The micro switch was our first option until the carburetor became available. Now I'm just looking for the correct interrupter switch. The one that came on mine from them rebuilding the trans doesn't seem to be correct. Mine has 2 prongs and should only have 1
  4. Very old topic but next time check with John Plaskan @ He is an excellent carb rebuilder and has an unlimited source of old carb parts. He's in Webster Florida. 813 713-5820.
  5. I am still in need of the correct interrupter switch for my M5 tranny. I can't afford the one on eBay. Way outta my price range. If anyone knows of one available please let met know.
  6. Pedal Pads

    I would think Andy Bernbaum would have replacements.
  7. Agreed. I live in south Florida and have a couple sources that will get me a title for around $400.00. And with no trouble at all. Just as long as there is no police report of it having been stolen. So I agree that if you can get a better deal without and makes him think you are gong to save him a big headache, then go for it. And there are other ways of getting a title too. Register in a no title state, then take to your DMV and transfer. They will send you a nice new title.

    This was done with a rattle can but it is also offered in a type you can spray from spray equipment. I have used the black from RPM for more than 20 years. This brand is new to me for wrinkle finish although I have used their heat resistant and header paint for many years. This one is from VHT. One thing about wrinkle finish is that you must follow the instructions almost to the letter. I have expedited the drying and wrinkling effect with heat before with good success. Almost mandatory in cold climates. VHT seems to be available in black, red, blue and gray. They all seem to be pretty heat resistant once cured and offer a durable coating. The RPM I always referred to as typewriter paint. Like the vintage typewriters had. I use extensively on motorcycle parts and valve cover inserts. Great for detailing.

    Yeah, kinda. Once ya figure out a system it's not too bad. But worth the outcome. I ended up measuring the length of the rectangle sides and tearing a lot of pieces of tape to size. Then just slapped em on. I have a custom paint and body shop so I'm used to masking things tediously. Even though not totally authentic, I like using wrinkle finish for contrasting detail. Like I said, the final product is worth the time and effort.
  10. Thanx. That's what I needed to know. I just wanted to make sure this one wont work before buying another. This is what came on the car and I wasn't around when the tranny was rebuilt and reassembled
  11. If anyone has first hand experience with this as far as knowing if the 2 prong switch in miner is correct or if there is a part number located on the switch, please let met know if mine can still be correct and possibly one prong is simply grounded.
  12. BEFORE: ^^^^^ BEFORE: ^^^^^ AFTER: ^^^^^ AFTER: ^^^^^ I couldn't afford to have my grill rechromed so I got hold of a descent condition grill and needed a way to improve the look of the harmonica insert section of the grill. I use wrinkle finish paint in my shop all the time but in the past have only found black and that wouldn't look right. Then I searched for other colors and found a very nice grey that I thought would look correct. After a few hours of prep and a lot of taping this is the outcome. It did what I wanted in hiding the pits in the painted portion of the grill. Plus it produces a hardened protection to help prevent future oxidation. I scuffed the insert sections with a purple scotch pad to open up the the pits then used the wrinkle finish paint exactly according to instructions. It produces a fine wrinkle that looks almost factory. Here's a before and after. This can help in many other areas for detail, especially under the hood. Hope it helps in your future projects.
  13. I'm in no hurry. The mechanic that was helping with that project just baled on me so the rest is up to me from here. I can finish the electrical but will take me a little longer than it would have taken him. This is the problem dealing with proper with mental conditions.
  14. Thanx. I saw that also but it's odd that the one that was sold was listed as a neutral safety switch. Most neutral safety stitches look like mine with 2 leads instead of one
