  1. Any vendors out there that rebuild these old radiators? Mine has a leak that I know has been going on for years. My father used sealants to some effect but I wouldn't mind just fixing it right.
  2. That's exactly what's happening. I've adjusted it for maximum throw and I still can't shift when it gets warm without stopping the motor. If I have to reface the clutch, is their a better modern material than the leather recommended in the old manuals. I know my father did replace the leather once years ago.
  3. Thank you all. The clutch is not stuck as I can shift into any gear initially but once it warms up if I shift into neutral, that's when I can't get it back into a gear without shutting off the engine. I'll try leaving the coolant lower and see what happens. Think I'll drive around the neighborhood tomorrow practicing my shifting. Attached a picture of my new toy.
  4. I just inherited this car from my father who passed away quickly before he could show me these things and I now have a couple basic questions that I can't seem to find answers to. It's a nice mostly original survivor that's been in my family mostly since new. 1) The spark advance lever, How do I use it and which way is advanced vs retarded? 2) It runs well but when I stop and shut off the engine, it pukes out a lot of anti-freeze. The radiator temp gauge says the temp is fine. 3) Struggling to figure out the clutch. so far I just start in 2nd or 3rd and leave it there but it wo
