  1. I pulled a wheel from my 62 Olds Dynamic 88 yesterday. Master cylinder (original, single chamber design) has remained full since purchase three years ago and brakes work fine. Brake cylinder appears to be in good shape and shoes (bonded) and drums look good but springs are rusted. Brake adjusting ports were all missing the rubber plugs when I purchased the car so I replaced them at that time. I am thinking about rebuilding the system. 1. Have not found a good source for kits for this model - springs, brake cylinders, brake hoses. Can reuse shoes. Any suggestions on suppliers? 2. Would be interested in replacing master cylinder with newer, two chamber design. Sources? 3. Power booster seems to be working just fine, but again, might as well go the whole nine yards and have it rebuild. Any suggestions? 4. Don't know what type of brake fluid is in the system now, but will likely change to DOT 5 Thanks Greg
  2. Actually, I checked with them first, and was told, no, they do not have either of these items
  3. Big help! The actuator assembly (everything in diagram but the rod and the lever) arrived today. Thanks!
  4. I have now found a NOS part which I am told was for a 1962 Starfire. Will this interchange with the turn signal actuator for the 1962 Dynamic 88? No returns and it is pricey, so I'd like to be certain.
  5. Does anyone know of a source for the following? 1. A square head fastener which holds the hard rubber inside wheel well to the bottom of the front bumper. 2. The round grommet used in the bottom of the battery compartment, in the hole used for the parking light and turn signal light wires to reach the parking light assembly. And finally, any suggestions for material to use to repair small tears in the rubber wheel well wall?
  6. I need the turn signal actuator assembly for my 1962 Olds Dynamic 88. This is located inside the steering column and connects to the turn signal switch mounted below on the top of the steering column. Did other divisions (e.g. Chevrolet) use the same assembly and can they be interchanged?
  7. I am looking for the turn signal assembly (the part which is inside the steering column, not the part under the dash on top of the column) for my 62 Olds Dynamic 88. I also need the front parking light/signal light housing which sits inside the bumper Greg
  8. Great suggestion - I'll check the grounding on the parking light to start.
  9. I was planning to drive my 1962 Oldsmobile 88 250 miles to the Hemmings Cruise In and Concours this weekend. Front seat was out to have tunnels put in for seat belts, so I could not take it in for inspection when it was due back in July. Seat went in Sundday. Car failed inspection on Monday due to inoperable turn signal on passenger side. This turn signal works intermittently - I have gotten out of vehicle to look at front and rear signals when turn signal indicator is working and the signals are working at that time. Other times passenger side indicator light is not lighting up and signals on passenger side are not working. Driver's side turn signals working consistently. Passenger brake light and parking light are operable. Flasher was hot to the tough when turn signal lever was being activated. Replaced flasher - still not working. That leaves either the turn signal switch, which is located on the steering column under the dash, or the turn signal actuator assembly inside the steering column as the likely sources of the problem. What would you suggest as the next step? Going to Hemmings now looks like a forlorn hope.
  10. I think this is an after market speedometer unit. This car, although claimed to be "original" at some point had the transmission tailpiece replaced with a unit from a 1963 transmission. In that year, the speedometer cable ran off the driver's side front wheel and there was no attachment for it on the tailpiece. Since my '62 had no attachment at the front wheel, someone rigged this up to get the speedometer to work. A sensor picks up magnets mounted on the driveshaft. I replaced the transmission with a 1962 transmission so the speedometer got hooked back up the way it was designed. thanks all!
  11. interior of box This car had no factory radio, by the way.
  12. Plug on end of wire in engine compartment
  13. Finally got around to removing an unknown device, which I am sure is aftermarket, from under the dash of my 62 Olds Dynamic 88. Has a number of wires, several which are grounds, and a long wire running through the firewall to the engine compartment, where the end is capped with an odd looking plug.
