    Movie The Birds

    Aston Martin DB 3 or 4. It was supplied to Hitchcock by Disney Studios. It has been found in a barn by the son of the woman the car was given to at the end of production. Supposedly being restored. The movie crew was very hard on the car during filming.

    Fuel lines and fittings.

    The old fittings have larger inside diameter. New fittings have smaller inside diameter. It is about restricting the fuel flow. The smallest ID is the flow speed of the entire system. Tubing size doesn't matter if you install one small fitting.
  4. You can search this site for a fellow in the Czech Republic that was making them to order. Customers were well pleased with his work.

    Protective mud

    It sure looks like it to me. But you will have to "Ask the man who owns one".

    Just get those fat folks to step aside and we could be more specific. Layden is spot on. As ever.

    Water pump rebuild with ceramic seal

    I find this repair most interesting. But how does this fit in a 20s or 30s water pump with external brass nuts for rope packing? OR is it only good for certain applications?

    Brake lights on again!

    Are you sure the MC piston seal is BEHIND the compensating port? If not it will store pressure.
  16. "Safety Siped" Look at a Lester or Lincoln tires. At least the older ones were. I am not sure of the Coker era tires.

    " 1961 VW Beetle dim tail lights"

    Those ceramic fuses corrode to give problems. My 1992 Mercedes had gremlins until I cleaned ALL the fuse ends. Upgrade kits are available up to gold plated versions.

    Dynamo/ generator rewiring

    Changing to 12 volts is not an upgrade. It is an expensive way to stay right where you are now.

    vacuum tank problems

    Stude17 has the answer ! It's the valve seats leaking. Not checked for proper function. But now it is back in the hands of the overhauler. Best wishes unto you......

    Constant Force Spring

    Yes, it could be repaired. I would buy that machine a new spring. Retire the old spring. A new spring will come oiled to prevent rusting. It isn't lubricated for use. There is a tool called a "spring winder" used to install the spring safely in the barrel. Otherwise you could well get hurt or ruin the new spring. Clock repair folks have the tool. I have heard of spring suppliers loading a spring for you if you send them the barrel. sometimes........... Be careful. '
