  1. I don't think 92s came with Dexcool. You don't want to put Dexcool into a car not originally equipped with it. There should be Dexcool stickers under the hood if the car originally came with it. I think the first year for it was 1995.
  2. I would probably hook up a known good mechanical gauge directly to the engine. Then see if it really is fluctuating.
  3. The Hollander Manual says fuel tank 49 Buick series 50 and 70 only , no further interchange. No other years fit and Buick Special is different.
  4. If you could find a 59 Ford with 332 V8 standard, you would be all set. Finding all the parts one by one would be costly and time consuming. A standard trans conversion like this a lot of work.
  5. The NY plates on the bewitched chevies are fake movie plates. NY didn't use plate numbers like those.
  6. Is it a pillarless hardtop or a sedan?
  7. According to Hollander,64 Buick heater core without AC ,Electra and Wildcat only. GM # 3000366 Hollander interchange # 58. No further interchanges. You can probably get your assembly recored at a radiator shop.
  8. The NY registration you need will say transferable on the front. The back will have two signature lines. One for the seller and one for the buyer. The registration half with transferable on it is the only ownership document NY gives you on a 72 or older vehicle. The other half is the registration window sticker .
  9. NY state's fee is $28.75 annually for Historic or YOM plates . You need to get an inspection every year.
  10. Most 59 Edsel Rangers were 292 V8s. The bigger engine was standard in the Corsair but not common in the Ranger. The six cylinder engine might lower the value though.
  11. Maybe a weak valve spring. You could test it on the car by trying to push the valve open with a bar then noting the pressure difference between the two valves on the bad cylinder. Make sure that the piston is down and both valves are closed. You might have to take the pushrods out to do this. Pfitz's timing light idea is good too.
  12. You might be able to pump some oil into the gauge fitting hole. If you can get enough in there it will wet down the gears to help them draw enough suction to pick up oil. It's often a good idea to pack the gears with light grease when assembling a dry oil pump.
  13. Modern double filament bulbs are oriented in the socket and can only be installed one way.Some of the six volt double filament bulbs can be installed either way. Maybe the brighter of the two filaments is wrongly attached to the running light rather than the turn signal. The sockets could also be hooked up wrong. Checking for bad grounds and dirty connections is a really good idea. Also check that the generator is putting out properly.
  14. I regularly store old battery cores on the concrete floor in my shop. They stay charged for months with no problem. I was told the storage myth comes from a hundred years ago when batteries had wooden cases. It was widely believed the concrete some how drained the battery through the wood.
  15. What kind of car is this? Does the miss continue up through all engine speeds?
  16. It bothers me when the ad shows a picture of another similar (better) car that is not for sale. This is to give you an idea of " what it would like when fixed up".
  17. Are you are looking for an electronic voltage regulator to work with your original dc generator ?
  18. Yes switch it. But don't reverse it. Get a new one as any dirt already in the filter would be deposited in your carburetor.
  19. Some states especially down south will issue a restricted drivers license , daytime use only to old people. This allows them to be independent for a couple more years without them being a hazard on the road.
  20. My father bought a new '58 Opel Olympia Caravan wagon identical to that one. Same colors as that one. The roof rack and white roof area were standard on the US model. Opel had that style from '58 to '60.
  21. I had a V864 Fleetwood two door for years. There was never a problem with it. It always performed well and very predictable. The only glitch was when the crossover pipe went bad the change of cylinders was very noticeable. The 6 cylinder mode was a little ragged but it spent very little time in 6 cylinder mode.
  22. I don't know much about Hyundais. I was hoping if someone here saw the year and model they might know something. A transmission shop could figure this out. A lot of these cars are still in use and a lot of shops have experience with them.
  23. Do you have Twilight sentinel and/or autronic eye? You need the factory shop manual for this car. It will be a big help for problems like this.
