  1. 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.
  2. Just makes me wonder if there is a balance condition similar to counter shafts on modern engines. Possibly some sort of vibration attenuator.

  5. Thank you for the location, I was concerned that it was not close to Orange field.
  6. 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.
  7. 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. We called them " Van Aukens" spelling of Aukens is questionable in long term memory

  11. check distributor base timing, and is Distributor advancing properly? check counter weights and pivot points and springs. Might be sticking. Best wishes
  12. wonderful, the reason behind the naming of so many things is very interesting.
  13. 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.
  14. Second car, has similarities to 37 Buick. Most likely a GM car
  15. if you start a seperate thread, you may already know the convertibles were leakin lenas, said Kukla Fran & Olie.
  16. 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.
  17. 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 s
  18. Can not seem to enlarge it to be able to read.
  19. 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
  20. Did your car originally use the "corrugated" style of asbestos insulation? Looks like cardboard box material. Often using metal bands with fold over tabs to hold insulation in place?
  21. We have a delightful group, every one is invited to attend and join us.
  22. 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................!
  23. In all cases the width of tire rim is important. The bead to bead measurement is sometimes listed for vehicles by model and engine. The info I have has a range from 2 3/4 " to 5" wide for tire seating. so what is your measurement? I will see if It will help you.
