  1. philipj,

     

    In reading some posts on Autolite plugs it looks like they moved production from Mexico to China sometime ago. The older application ACDelco plugs, like R45, were made by Autolite. So your China plugs maybe current production. It could  have taken years to run out of the Mexican inventory at ACDelco. Pictures of the box and plugs would help if it matters to you.

  2. Larry,  The pictured plug is newly manufactured and not by AC in Flint. If you google it you will find they are being sold by a Corvette supplier as new ACDelco green stripes.  Currently 45 is not a good number in the ACDelco system. The source I googled does not mention it to be a licensed product so who knows about the engineering , actual heat range, or anything else. If I was the OP I would stick with new ACDelco R45s or NOS AC's from ebay or other sources.

  3. ACDelco has not offered a non-resistor 45 type plug in years. The plug you show might be a licensed reproduction product if it is new, was there any info to that effect on the box or sales info? If not licensed I would be careful. The ACDelco R45 plugs are available at your local parts stores and Bob's. Those I have  that are of recent manufacture are all made in Mexico and don't have the exact look of the AC Spark plugs manufactured in Flint.

  4. Thanks for the responses. The new rear door reminds me of a guy who bought a Chevy with that treatment from a guy who sold carpet and used it to load and unload carpet rolls. He saved the cutout which was put back together by the new owner. Probably not as easy with the aluminum.

  5. On AC pumps with four digit numbers like 9304 you add the number 153 in front to get the factory number - 1539304. This crosses to AC pump type or part number 421. The dome or cone shaped item on the top cover is cast in to the cover which makes it a later replacement. See my photo above, the dome screws on to the cover. Your pump and the ebay pump are correct in function for the car but not exactly what was on it when delivered.

     

    Hope this helps.

  6. Gary, It all depends on the state which the car was last registered. My state of Georgia does not issue titles for older cars. The transactions are handled with the registration and a bill of sale. Some title states will issue you a provisional title if you post a bond and after a period of time, and all is good, will issue you a title. Give us some more detail and the vehicles home state and someone here can point you in the right direction.

  7. I would be very interested in how the batteries were connected and the voltage of the drive motor. Did it originally have 14, 6 volt batteries? 

     

    Pictures as mentioned above would be great.

     

    Thanks for sharing

  8. AC made quite a few pumps with hand primers that worked the fuel pump diaphragm. Someone in the past fitted one to the pump on my 31 Buick, but I don't need it unless it sits for more than a month. I would try that before a rubber outboard fuel line pump.  How does your car start when you use it then let it cool on the same day?
