  1. Hi everyone, I know everyone loves clamshell problems........ I'm needing some direction, if you would be so kind. My clams don't close....They did at one time but quit. I was taking the lower relay apart and cleaning the points, which worked for awhile. I replaced the lower relay and did that wiring change that was wrote about. It worked twice. So now I bought another one, and replaced the top relay. I also cleaned to bare metal the fender area, checked all the connections, and cleaned with cleaner the harness pins.... Still won't close. If I touch a hot wire to the wire going to the motor it will close, BUT only if I disconnect the plug at the bottom relay... Any idea's, or something I'm missing? I don't want to, but I read somewhere that a separate switch could be ran to the dash. Thanks for any idea's, . Buddy
  2. Saw that also... I shouted at the wife, look at that. It was gone, but showed it again... Nice..
  3. My repro reads 3/4 when full also........but that's 3/4 more than it read before, lol
  4. I really am going to sell my chrome dual snorkel and buy that air cleaner like yours....
  5. So, They are out there after all.............That even ruined the image that Rivnut Posted of the lady, er, the car I mean....
  6. Try J.C. Taylor for a quick fix, maybe?
  7. That's Sweet....Can't beat a Buick, a Redhead, Jack, and a smoke....well, except the smoke...
  8. Out here in Podunk, Az., my 65 rarely generates much interest. Even at the local get togethers, or cruising around, most everything is ratrods, mods, etc. I think it's because its a small poor town. Pop. 40,000. In the winter we get about 20,000 snowbirds from Mich. Iowa, Midwest, etc. They know the car... Last winter a older man from Mich. talked to me while we were at the car wash. Told me he retired from the flint plant and that he helped build the 65. He went on an on about it. I asked him if he would like to go for a ride. It just lit up. Made my day, and his too. I drive mine for me..... Buddy
  9. With my 65 having the dual quads, I get 11 mpg. average. Very little Interstate driving. That windshield attracts rocks like ticks on a dog........
  10. I hand painted mine, as well as the rockers and clams. Pacifico, and a couple shots of Patron along the way made it less tedious........lol
  11. I knew my PS unit was leaking, until I had my wife turn the steering wheel full left and right lock, ittsy bitty pinhole leak from the high side was squirting on the pump area... I should still probably rebuild the pump though........lol Buddy
  12. Anyone had any experience with J.C. Taylor Classic insurance.....pros or cons? I think it's underwriter is Foremost Ins. Buddy
  13. Thanks for that link....I need two also. I cracked both of mine, then I figured out it was my fat butt sitting on the door sill that was breaking them..... Man, am I embarrassed Buddy
  14. That's sweet looking, Tony. I've been wanting to rid my 65 of the chrome dual quad air cleaner for sometime. Could you point me in the right direction, like the oval one of yours? Thanks, Buddy
  15. We had a car show here in Podunk this past week-end. Had over 200 vehicles entered. I always try to find a Rivi, but are pretty rare here. Saw a nice 63, red in color. I talked to the owner who is from the Chicago area. He towed the Riv on a dolly all the way to Az. His name is Jim Gallagher, and we had a nice time chatting about our cars. Anyway, have a great day...... Buddy
