    53 Differential Fill Plug

    Oops, it's a fill plug. Maybe it USED to be a drain plug.

    53 Differential Fill Plug

    Isn't that so you can crack the plug and just have a stream coming out? Something you can aim, rather than just jerking the plug and making a bigger mess. This would make more sense on an oil pan than a differential, though I guess.

    YEAHHHH!!!! RETIRED!!!!!!

    I've had a couple people ask me how long it takes to adjust to retirement. Based on mine and my wife's experience, I say "about a day and a half."

    On the floor, besides the pedals, is the dimmer switch and an OD kickdown switch under the accelerator pedal.

    1953 Super Dynaflow dipstick

    It occurs to me now I should have scoped out and measured the fill tube/dipstick tube, but it is an original 53 twin turbine Dynaflow. From the underside of the black cap, the dipstick is 16 11/16" long. That is, the dipstick reaches down the tube 16 11/16". From the bottom of the stick, the add oil mark is up 1 7/16" and the full mark is up 2 5/16". I can put up a couple pics after my dinner, and I can measure the fill tube tomorrow or next day.

    What Do You Use in Your Parts Cleaner?

    I bought one of those common harbor freight jobs, (keep it in a dark corner). Originally used mineral spirits. This works great, but has two problems: it got real expensive, and after a couple weeks it just reeks. I mean really smells bad and hard to get the odor off you. Not sure why. Now we just use diesel fuel in it and that works well enough for Arkansas. First pump failed quick, bought a replacement somewhere else that has lasted several years.
  15. I kinda like the car. But I don't think even the owner would be offended by the idea it oughta be beat to death with a sledgehammer. And I do like seeing something different here from time to time.
