  1. thanks guys, i'll check it out and let you know
  2. hello AGAIN, I'm trying to install a after market fan shroud from CARS and was wondering if anyone knows where and how it gets attached, my manual doesn't seem to have any pictures, ,,can't see where to attach it specially at the top ??? any help; pics ? thanks 65 riv no air
  3. it just had the spacer and the flex fan, maybe it doesn't need a fan clutch could I use a 6 blade fan for more air flow ?
  4. hi, when I bought the car the motor was out of it and it had a 18in flex fan on it, why I have no idea, I don't believe it ever was running in the car with that fan on it. So I just need a stock fan and fan clutch for a non ac car,so I would presume that's a non thermal clutch fan. opg has a set up but I don't know what fan clutch I need. thanks again
  5. its a non ac 401 I presume that would be a non thermal fan clutch ?, any other specs I should be worried about. thanks again rivnut.
  6. hello guys, I want to order a clutch fan from rockauto #2747 hayden, I saw this in another post. now, do I need a thermal or non thermal fan clutch for my 65 401. is there a big difference. thanks again
  7. thanks everyone,I found a shop that will rebuild the tranny,I think that's the best route to take, thanks again everyone
  8. hello everyone I need to replace my tranny in my 65 riv, I know the 65 has a switch pitch tranny ,now that said, can I replace it with say a monster tranny without a switch pitch, would there be any problems ? like the kick down switch etc. I live in a small town in wis. no one here rebuilds these trannys, do I really need the switch pitch in this car for a basic driver car. any suggestions as what I should do. thanks
  9. thanks all,I will give it a try and see what happens,thanks again
  10. took the first ride in the riv, didn't last long the tranny won't shift out of first gear.the tranny has sat for some 20yrs, replaced fluids, tranny filter' etc .what next ? who makes a good rebuilt tranny, or who is a good tranny rebuilder. lost

  12. hey, another post, we put 4 2in drop coils on the 65 riv, a guy at the shop said you need to put drop spindles on it. there was no mention of dropped spindles when I bought the kit. is this true?
  13. hi guys, the mechanic says the pump tests ok after the rebuild, so were thinking the gear box. this box sat for 25yrs so who knows, we can't see any leaks, i guess we rebuild the box. cars sells them for 85.00 bucks. anyone know of a cheaper full rebuild kit, also does the riv have the Saginaw 800 in it. thanks again for your help.
