  1. The Delco REPLACEMENT shocks were a flat grey. A lot of guys pay big money to buy them thinking because they say Delco on the box that they are the same as original equipment. Monroes were the metallic blue and were a very popular replacement back in the day. I had a Monroe demo barrel in front of my service staion in 1970 and installed a LOT of them on nearly new cars just becaue they seemed tighter than OEM's on the demonstrator. All the Oldsmobiles, both full size and Cutlass that I have restored that I knew for sure were all original had black shocks - kind of a semi gloss black. They were the same on cars in the Dealership through at least the end of the RWD Cutlass, Delta, etc. You will have guys argue for the gray and the blue and so many people are convinced that their choice is correct that it really doesn't matter what you use - there will be SOMEONE who will think whatever you have is correct.
  2. The dipstick in this '70 TH400 transmission is too short. Can anyone tell me how long it SHOULD be and how far from the tip to the "Full" line by measuring theirs.?? Does some one have an extra to sell? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Tom
  3. I had the pan off the TH 400 and noticed that the tip of the dip stick only came flush with the pan surface of the case. The trans will be way overfull if I use this stick. Can anyone tell me how long a TH 400 dipstick from probly 68-72 should be and how far from the end of it to the "Full" line.? Any help appreciated. Tom Joyce - 262-886-9806 CDT.

  9. I just bought a 66 Merc. Monterey 2 dr hardtop (fastback)out of Georgia and while the car is pretty much rust free, all the die cast parts are very pitted. I am looking for a grill, headlight doors, front fender "vents", tail light trim and dash panels. Also could use the front bumper and the right end of the rear bumper. They don't have to be show quality just mostly pit-free GOOD driver quality. Any help or leads will be appreciated. Tom Joyce 262-886-9806
