  1. One would think that all off the metal shavings and bits the part having an issue would be self-evident. Appears to be a half round piece of metal in the top picture. Maybe it was a small spring or similar that was not installed properly that made it's way through getting ground up in the process. Maybe broke pieces from the awkward vane in the turbine?
  2. Chasing Classic Car. Much beyond that not much for me. However, Shorty on Iron Resurrection can paint very very well.
  3. There is a seam at the front of doors at the rocker panel. At the rear of the door at the rocker there is no seam. However, the fender lowers behind the front wheels do not appear to line up very well.
  4. Some leave it open and frozen in that position. Others remove it completely. Either way, it is a bugger.
  5. https://www.holmart.com.au/gm-rust-penetrant-and-inhibitor-heat-valve-lubrica?gclid=CjwKCAjw07qDBhBxEiwA6pPbHktmCdoy9mGUAx7ZgvgUKvD4j7665hIg31b66Uk4352Taxlzp7MOrxoCyc0QAvD_BwE
  6. Believe it or not, GM still sells heat riser valve penetrant. I have a can.
  7. If the riser was closed you would know it after she has warmed up. No power. Pinging. It would be similar to running with a hand over your mouth every time you exhaled.
  8. $42K? I think this is quite ambitious. Nice car all the same. I like the color combo. It appears to be the flexible steering wheel offered in 54. $42k is very ambitious.
  9. I would try a compressible gasket. Something similar to this(see link). It will compress and form to the surfaces making a seal. https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/EXT31416?cid=paidsearch_shopping_dcoe_google&campaign=GSC-Engines-Parts-Gaskets&campaign_id=10947735034&adgroup_id=107081865746&adtype=pla&gclid=CjwKCAjwjbCDBhAwEiwAiudBywIX8syL2ABbLoRIETVKNY6s67UTcsYRMdB-hF5A3kp4oCdzXDmbJhoC6NUQAvD_BwE&
  10. Does the steering column have a ground wire? If so, check the connection.
  11. I attend car and coffee at the museum when I can. I have also participated in local cruises hosted by the museum. Some parades as well. It is great museum with many active members. St Michaels is a great small town to visit, shop and eat. Well worth the visit and taking time to enjoy all St Michaels and the museum has to offer.
