  1. What's the socket size for the balancer bolt on a 64 425? Getting ready to R&R my plastic timing gear, and I don't seem to have a socket that fits that bolt. Can't find any info about the size in the repair manual either.
  2. Here in the desert, we have tumble weeds in the fall, they can really wipe out a radiator. I planned on putting steel mesh on the backside of the grill, and in the openings on the bumper. Farther away those long sticks from the radiator, the better.
  3. Could your leaks be from too much pressure then? I hadn't heard about the cap being too high pressure, interesting.
  4. I'm shopping for one right now too. TA appears to sells the exact same set as the gold linked one. As far as i've determined, those are the only two available. I believe the gold one is a roller link version.
  5. Heard of his channel, but that was the first video i've seen from it. Pretty entertaining. I hope he flips the car instead of parting it out. Needs some work, but it looks pretty complete. Wouldn't mind owning a boattail.
  6. I really like the color matched dash and rear deck panel.
  7. I am absolutely not a wiring guru, but i've had to learn a lot to fix the wiring on my 64. It's not that bad to learn. These cars are really simple, and the components are simple. My 92 corvette, is not simple and i'm honestly terrified of the wiring on that car.
  8. It's been serious lengthened for some weird reason. Also, they added a different reverse lockout. The whole shifter cover plate is gone too. I suspect someone modified a old hurst shift to fit the car. They may have had to modify the trans tunnel to fit it. If this was a 6 or 8k car, i'd be more tolerant of it. But at 15k, no way.
  9. Noticed the warped driver's door card, and the steering column chrome painted black. To me, two more indicators that the windshield is leaking. The chrome will get pits (the reason for the painted chrome) and the door card is pressed cardboard so it absorbs some water. Note the hole at the arm rest near the window switches. I'd want to look at the floors, and even pull the top inside windshield trim off to see what's under it. If it was 3 or 4k cheaper, I wouldn't be that concerned. But at that price, it better be solid metal.
  10. If it needs a fuse box, then the windshield is leaking, and it's leaking because of rust-out. Had that problem on mine. Had to replace the whole fuse block with a custom built part. It was not easy.
  11. That's been my experience. The belts on my old ford tended to glaze over after a bit. I suspect from overheating the belts. Desert heat is hard on rubber.
  12. The color on that 65, matches my envy perfectly. I've seen a couple of bulletbirds in traffic around here. They are so radically different looking than modern traffic... they might as well be hovering with a martian at the wheel. I'm not surprised that several members here are into them, as they were in the same market just on the opposite extremes.
  13. I wonder if it's a test line? Why is a pontiac behind a buick? I can't identify the white car in front of the buick, but I wonder if it's a mid size olds. The techs are wearing white aprons too, which is odd.
  14. Love the bumpers on that concept car. Shame it never saw daylight, that would have been an interesting car.
