  1. Your service manual has the procedure with pictures of what to adjust. Make sure the indicator is properly set after you get the shifter adjusted correctly. It should be a simple adjustment at the rear most linkage of the transmission. I don't have the manual for the F-85. Someone else on the forum may share that info with you. Good Luck Dave
  2. OEM BURROUGHS TOOLS, A LITTLE PAINT REMOVED TO EXPOSE LIGHT STAMPINGS.
  3. Try Duane Hays , Peyton Co. 303-570-2812 Dave
  4. Have not seen a single post as to how things went ???????
  5. THERE ARE NINE SETS (BT-33-1 & Bt-33-8) available. P.M.me with address info. THE BT-33-8 is only used on Starfires. Postage is $5. Send a check for $5 plus what ever you think is fair for the tools. Follow instructions in the Service Manual, MINOR SERVICE ADJUSTMENTS in the Hydra-Matic section of the Service Manual. Good Luck Dave (719)-634-4238 Colorado Springs
  6. I am currently making some of both. They will be available soon. As before, I let member decide what they are worth to him. I make them in sets of one each. will let you know when they are available Dave
  7. I have both tools. the BT-33-8 is about 3/16" longer setting than the BT-33-1 ??????????????? The last time I made these up I gave both tools to those who wanted them. Looks like I will do the same if I make a few more. User will have to decide which to use. Dave
  8. Find a wiring diagram and trace the things that don't work to their source and ground. It sounds like a poor ground. Good luck,Dave Here is a link for Autozone's wiring diagrams. http://www.autozone.com/repairinfo/repairguide/repairGuideMain.jsp?pageId=0900c15280055ed1
  9. Thanks Joe, I do not see why there would be any difference. My Burroughs essential tools catalog index lists the BT 33-8 as an accelerator height gauge but doesn't picture it or state where it is used. Dave
  10. Joe, the 1961 Starfire supplement , page 9, indicates the tool BT 33-8 is used to set the accelerator height adjustment. That seems incorrect. All the 1961 full size cars have the same physical dimensions except the wheel base of the 98. The Super 88 is a dressed up 88 with the 98 engine for example. Why then would the Starfire, an 88 with some special trim and a "Starfire" or 98 engine require a different accelerator height ?????
  11. Help me out here, I don't have a 1962 Service manual, and don't have a need for one. My 1961 manual calls for tool "BT33-1" to set the accelerator height . What tool does the 1962 manual specify for this job for all except F-85, including Starfire. I think I have found an error in the Service Manual. Dave
  12. Found 12 full cans of "Atlas Wax" cleaning an old shed in Pitkin Colorado. Instructions indicate this a car wax. I have searched the internet and find nothing. Just wondering if anyone might know something about it.
  13. THE CLIPS FOR THE 1961-62 STARFIRE ARE SHORTER THAN OTHERS. YOU CAN MODIFY THE LONGER CLIPS BUT IT IS A PITA. I THINK FUSICK HAS THE CORRECT SIZE CLIP. GOOD LUCK ,DAVE
  14. Found at auction, It is stamped inside "Brown Mid-Lite" E.A.M universal. It's in great condition and has what appears to be a stop/turn or tail light bulb with double element. The bracket has two holes at the bottom of the bracket and what looks like a clamp for a bar on the other end. Would like to know what it goes to.Hope someone needs it.
