  2. Hershey is Therapeutic,  for mind and body. 

    Just bring  clothing for any kind of weather.

    Money too.

    And ENJOY

    This year will be 56 years in a row, my grand sons  with birthdays on 10th and 14th know we will celebrate them again when I show up.

    My Marvel book on overhauling marvel carb

    all springs are 1 1/2 inch long, except Essex 30, 31 and 32  and Pontiac sis30, 31, and 32 which use springs 1 1/16

    28 Pontiac  uses spring 24-115 which appears to be used by many cars.

    Now to determine spring number 24-115 and different shapes on picture  

    ////////////

    Buick '25  Master 6 uses air spring 24-115 so they may have the spring for you.

  5. do I recall  correctly:   That the rental scooters are to be returned EACH  evening at 5 PM  and picked up at 8 AM so they can be charged over night?

     

    Do we know the exact location where the scooter site is located, may affect ability to comply with rules.

     


  6. We had a 69 mustang, 72 Grand Torino, 72 Mercury Marquis and 69 Ford wagon,  too many keys to carry.

    had Mustang share two keys with Grand Torino,  same for Mercury and Wagon.

    Just had to turn key over to open or start each car.

    It was Very handy, can not do it now.

  8. Happily received it Tuesday,  This will be 56 years in a row !!

    I just love the time luxuriating in the entire atmosphere  there.

     

    The group we camp with ranges from 80 to 97,  and it's wonderful !

     

    These forums, the people here  all have enlivened my feelings and  knowledge of the hobby.

    I will never know most of the persons who represent them selves here but I know they are everywhere at Hershey.

  9. My response was to his description of the  tank he has.

     

    It does have some differences in outside appearance from my tanks. 

     

    If someone has documentation of make and model with years  used that could be helpful. 

     

    There could have been more than one model of Tank used in a given year.

    There could have been changes by owners, even on low mileage vehicles, deemed to be original by some today.

     

     

     


     

     

     

     

     

     

     


  10. Four  screws to hold the metal top on the vacuum tank was used on Essex cars thru 31 and likely 32.

    //

    The system works as a two part system.

    the outer tank is the reservoir for the carburetors operation.  fuel is supplied to it by the  inner tank thru  the flapper valve.

    ///////

    The inner tank is the Vacuum reservoir and controller  of fuel delivery.

    /////////////

    The inner tank has the float and it is connected to the  two little "L" shaped rods which open and close the vacuum supply and opening to  atmosphere.

    The lower flapper valve is important to seal the inner tank so vacuum can be applied to gas line to tank.

    Normally the gas level in the outer tank will help seal  the flapper valve.

    /////////////

    The top inside of the tank top, needs to have the check valves cleaned,  I use carb cleaner spray.  thay 

    Please remove fuel inlet elbow to top of tank, check there is no filter gauze or other obstruction below it.

    Next, carefully check sealing surface of flapper valve, It must seal, you may be able to remove clip holding it and reverse the flapper it self.

    In addition, there is a small  vent on the top of the tank.  This must not be blocked by the gasket material, it vents the outer tank to let fuel feed to carb.

    ////////////////

    Without personal observation it may appear you are sucking fuel back into the tank from the carb feed line, or just not drawing enough into   the tank.

     

    good luck 

     


  11. The Mill and Drill for the space frame was very interesting to watch. After Mill and drill, many of the  "pads" that had been machined were of varying thicknesses. 

    This was the method of equalizing the finished frame for fitting body and other components.

    A side light from the   Fiero Plant floor: personal experience and observation.

    When attending my first meeting, and walking in a wide walkway to attend a meeting and view line operations, I was showered with sparks from a welder some 45 feet away and behind me at a 45 degree angle.   Wearing wool slacks and a cotton dress shirt I was a mass of holes on my left and back side.

     

    Now  being aware of the possibility of needing more clothing on subsequent visits I observed  the welder from a distance .  The operator  seemed to note single walkers about to pass by, and rotated standing position and repositioning the spot welding gun, would appear to shower the single person with sparks.

    there were some chuckles about it in the meeting, but ......................

    //////////////////////////

    At Cadillac, we had a Superintendent bent upon starting his own  company to install larger engines in the Fiero, nothing came of it that I know of.................Differential issues were an issue, along with others.

     


  12.  

    Started crusin Woodward in a "51 Kaiser, 54 Buick Century, then Pontiacs 60, 63, 65, 68, then Fords.

    In '91 gave wife a '91  Stang   GT convertible,  use it every year.

    I think the '60 Poncho with tri power, munci 4 speed and 3.90 was the best!

    Our anniversary is the 19th, so the cruse is a good reminder...............to get the car ready................!
