  1. Thanks @Ben Bruce aka First Born. Appreciate the info.
  2. Hi all. I have asked this question in the GS pages here Fan to radiator clearance. But it seem to me that the answer is common to any car that does not have a fan shroud. If your car does not have a shroud would you report the year and clearance measurement between your fan and radiator. At this point it looks like a spacer will have to be fabricated for this particular application. Thanks for any help
  3. Writing for a friend who bought a 67 GS 400. This car is non AC and as such uses an 17 inch fan without a shroud. It does have a small fan guard but no shroud. It appears to be missing a spacer between the fan and water pump as the fan blade to radiator clearance is a bit over 3 inches. Also a factory service manual shows a spacer. The question is how vlose should the fan be to the radiator so we can start looking for spacers or alternatives. Can't find this measurement in the manual and hoping anyone with such a set up in their car can provide some guidance Thank you John D
  4. Had the Electra out last night. Lots of horses around what with the start of the racing meet at Saratoga Springs. Had the Super out tonite. Heavy humidity and clouds turned the setting sun into a bright orange ball And a short while later I stopped at one of the locks on the Mohawk River High water levels this year due to a soggy July weather pattern.
  5. Welcome to this Forum. Looks like a beauty! Glad you shared it here. Look forward to more pictures of your travels.
  6. Was finally able to take the car cover and padding off the Regal for the first time in two weeks. So theres at least a chance of getting to the car thats in the garage in front of it. Sure wish we could transport some of these storms out West.
  7. Moving forward is worth a like. The straight 8 though, sheesh! Good luck!
  8. Should only be one, but also what about running too lean?
  9. Any current shock absorbers that are available will work if yours need to be replaced. The thing I've noticed is that unless yours are already bad, you won't really see a difference in the car's driving charistics.
  10. Yes, a lot of the highways around Rochester are not accounted for. There is 490 which looks into Rochester from Fairport on the East and Batavia on the West. Rt 390 which travels South to Corning and the southern tier. And Rt 88 which travels from Albany to Binghamton at a minimum. Just a neat period time piece. Here is the lower Hudson Valley portion.
  11. Found a 1956-57 NYS roadmap for the glovebox. At this point the NYS thruway did not traverse the entire State. It ended in Fredonia which is south of Buffalo but not quite to the Pennsylvania line. Also other missing notables are Rt 84 which cuts across the Orange county and Putnam County landscape with the Beacon Newburgh Bridge. There was a Ferry at the bridge location back then, or drivers had to traverse north to Poughkeepsie or south to the Bear Mtn Bridge to get across the Hudson River. Also missing is the Bay Bridge over Irondequoit Bay in the Rochester Area. I hope the pictures stick.
