  1. I`m picking at a list of things , one is the amp light stays on when running. The alternator has been rebuilt, I`ve tried unplugging and plugging the voltage regulator many times in case corrosion has built up on the contacts. Lost in the woods again.
  2. I `m looking for the member who sells the mini starter for my`64 425 , please.
  3. Caveat Emptor. Learn from my mistake. Never again.
  4. Time well spent, looks great!
  5. I used a 6 inch wheel on my homemade set up with great results . Perhaps using a large wheel with a faster rim speed could cause the grief you speak of
  6. I was thinking more a DIY solution (Deep pockets, short arms)
  7. I`ll further muddy the waters,Remove your moldings, get a heat gun , Set it on low, soften the tar and scrape off tar.Any residue left can be removed with lacquer thinner or acetone I use a green 3m scrubbie and lots of paper towels. I used an old 1/4 hp motor and attached a mandrel on it so I could run a buffing wheel. Get a bar of stainless compound and buff til your happy.

    Replacing back window in a '65

    The only thing to watch for are the clips, they rust out over time. do a hose leak test . If it leaks there will be work to be done to repair rust and holes. Very common to find leaks from the clip fasteners rust away leaving a hole .Check your trunk for moisture. The body service manual shows how to install the glass with the rubber spacers. May as well give it a go. Hopefully you have a Riv that was garage kept its whole life
  10. This happens when the Gas (Ethanol) evaporates from the float bowls after sitting for a long while . There is a thread about this in the last year or so. Riv Nut had a solution using an electric mini pump . well worth looking into.

    Now she’s smoking!!!!

    Check your oil ,see if you have water in it, sometimes it looks like an ugly milkshake .Best of luck.
  13. I don`t believe mine are original and glass beads cleaned them up nicely .As with most tools , it`s all in the hands of the operator . Flat clear (automotive) helps to keep the finish looking good while stopping flash oxidation which is common with Aluminum
  14. I went to a local U- Blast, used glass beads ,sprayed flat clear on them.

    New radiator?

    I have not used them , I had mine re-cored.The top and bottom remain stock and the cooling part is replaced,looks stock but performs like a new rad.Saved a few bucks too!
  18. Well it`s time for another dip into the puzzle box .Headliner is in so it`s time to install the moulding, is there a best place to start? any super sneaky tricks you fellas may have garnered over the years to make this a more pleasant (?) task? Thanks in advance. Scott.
