  1. The corroded first piece is the end of the battery box.
  2. It doesn't matter the position of the camshaft except that if the high spot on the lobe is pressing against the pump arm you would have to hold the pump real tight to the block with one hand and start the capscrews with the other. There is probably no "sweet spot" as even the low spot on the cam will press against the pump arm.
  3. Thank you Wayne. Maybe your description will help people understand. People here and on other sites have got upset with me when I mention "nomenclature" or try to tell them the difference between a "split rim", "two piece rim including lock ring", "two piece rim without lock ring" and "three piece rims with lock ring" and then of course there are the split rims with a triangular solid ring that fits behind the wedges to center the rim on the felloe. Part of the problem today is the common incorrect usage of the terms even among manufacturers.
  4. Fantastic video. Beautiful group of Citroen vehicles. So nice to have commentary by someone who knows the marque and can speak without and ums, ums, uhh and of course no statements made followed by yeah. I must not fail to complement him on his well modulated voice. No need to yell and shout. Thank you for sharing this video.
  5. Picture this. 1962 I was working in the parts department of a Chevrolet Dealership. My daily driver Pontiac was on the staff lot. The Used Car Sales Manager came to see me and offered me a 1917 Chevrolet V8 touring (that was just traded in) for $100.00. I looked at it and said no I did not want to go down from a Pontiac to a Chevrolet. At the time I had four Pontiac cars ('26, '27, '28 and '29) as well as my Grandfather's 1930. BOY WAS THAT A STUPID DECISION.

  7. Love all the replies. I would like to add apostrophes. They indicate that something belongs to something/someone as in John's. OR they indicate that something is missing as in '42 which means 1942 or 1842 etc. If written as 42' it means 42 feet long. I also hate if interested call/contact etc. Keep safe aficionados.
  8. Nice looking coupe. I am attaching information about a Windshield regulator on Fisher bodied vehicles. Yours may not be the same but it will be similar. The windshield glass itself is in a channel across the top and down each side. This channel hangs from the two round gears on the regulator. I hope you get as much pleasure out of your car as I have had with my daily driver over the last 59 years.
  9. Yes you can and it should be done with the engine at operating temperature and idling. Be thankful you have a WPC engine and not a Pontiac engine. You only need two wrenches and a feeler gauge (preferably a go/no go feeler). My engine needed three wrenches and a feeler gauge until I replaced my tappet adjusters with WPC ones.
  10. If there were no other extenuating causes generally "back firing" which is through the carb is caused by a lean mixture, "after firing" which is in the muffler is caused by a too rich mixture. Many people use the term backfire when they really are describing after fire. Two different things, with at least two different causes neither of which is interchangeable.

  12. Get the suspension and steering set up properly and you will be able to steer it with two fingers. This would include all the shackles and all the joints, the steering box, caster, camber toe-in, whee bearings adjusted and tires properly inflated. Great looking car.
