1941 Chrysler Royal

  Views: 156   Comments: 0

1941 Chrysler Royal that was shipped in from MO back in December has finally left for Norway. The car was shipped in to my shop and the idiot that the car was bought from as well as the shipper never bothered to check for any possible loose parts. The hood was not bolted on and the trunk was not latched closed. So needless to say the hood was missing and several of the hood bars were lost in transit. I finally located the missing parts but it did take close to 5 months to locate the needed parts...

Cobra Radiator cooling fan relay

  Views: 94   Comments: 0

Finally got a few minutes to install the new cooling fan relay on my Cobra. The new Radiator cooling fan relay is a painless and came with great instructions. I hope to complete the install this weekend and check it out. I also posted a photo of the old relay and all the feedback was negative on the existing relay. It failed on the Cobra and the fan stayed on all the time.

Thanks for all the feed back... Willie Moore StreetRodding...

Temp Gauge

  Views: 90   Comments: 3

I bought a set of Dolphin electric gauges several years ago and I am just now getting around to installing them. I finished hooking up the gauges and when I turned on the ignition the temp gauge pegged to 250+ degrees. I started the car and the gauge didn't move. I checked the connections and everything is grounded correctly, I did not use any Teflon tape of thread sealant on the sending unit. I contacted Dolphin and they said it was probably a bad sending unit. I guess it could be bad even...

Drove out with the Great Gray Beards in my topless 32 Ford Roadster to the L A show ! VERY LOW car turn out when we got there and even surprised at our hotel not very many cars when we pulled in ! The car count was lucky if it made half ,show was OK but even spectator was way down ! The swap meet on Friday was good but on Saturday most people where packing up by noon ! We left on Sunday and was told that the roadster area was a ghost town ! When we parked Saturday nobody was there to park us...

Cooling Fan Relay Kit Any Feedback

  Views: 205   Comments: 5

I am replacing an adjustable relay in my Cobra.

This looks like a good set up to run off a thermostat and a manual switch. What do you think???

Installing air conditioning to your hot rod? Need a cooling fan relay to operate off of a thermostatic switch and when your a/c is on? The dual activation cooling fan relay kits by Painless Performance are exactly what you need. Only a few minutes for the installation and your cooling fan will come on when the engine reaches the preset temper...

Looking for a Electro Lock with the pop out for a 1931 Chevy

Driving your car and enjoying it is what this hobby is all about. Anyway, for a driver you can go with an aftermarket electro lock and it will give you years of good service. Aftermarket electro locks are fairly easy to locate and you can pick up a new old replacement stock unit for around $75 or so. The OEM "pop out" electro locks are harder to locate and they usually command a lot more money as well.

If you have any ideas pleas...

Steering Column Question

  Views: 207   Comments: 10

Need a little help here guys. Can anybody tell me on an after market steering column like Flaming River or Ididit, is there any play in and out on the shaft? That meaning if the column is mounted and hooked to nothing, could you push the shaft up into the column like an inch? Also, when you mount the borgeson joint to the column, how close should it be to the bottom of the tube? And for that matter, how much shaft should in each joint? Flush to the bottom of the collar or what?

I've got a p...

1966 Cobra Rear Axle Bearings

  Views: 213   Comments: 6

1966 Cobra Rear Axle Bearings. I noticed a little gear oil leaking out of the axle housing on my 1966 Cobra. I removed the axle on the passengers side and see that the o ring that is on the outside of the sealed axle bearing is hard and flat. The bearing is in good condition but the O ring is shot. I have been looking for just the O ring but no one seems to have the O ring. For that matter advanced auto does not even stock the bearing. I am thinking of buying the new bearing and just robbing the...

1966 Cobra Rear Axle Seal Repair

  Views: 120   Comments: 3

1966 Cobra Rear Axle Seal Repair. I pulled the rear axles on my cobra to repair a small seal leak. The rear end is a Ford 9 inch after market built rear end. The bearings are sealed and use an O ring on the outer race to keep the gear oil from leaking out. I went to the local parts house and what a real waste of time that was. No one there had ever seen this type of bearing and for sure did not know anything about a 1966 Cobra. So after extensive internet research I was unable to locate the O ri...

Front Lower Control Arm Bushings

1941 Chrysler Royal Hood

  Views: 179   Comments: 2

1941 Chrysler Royal Hood. I finally located the hood for the 41 Chrysler. The hood was lost off the car when it was shipped down from Missouri. It is hard to believe that a person you are buying a car from would not even bother to verify the hood was bolted down and that the trunk was not latched down or at least tied down. One would think the driver should have taken 5 minutes and looked the car over before taking off. I would have never imagined the level of stupidity associated with these ...

Chevrolet 350 coolant direction

  Views: 171   Comments: 5

I have a spacer in my thermostat housing so that I can run the supply line to the heater core out of it, as both locations in the intake are blocked with A/C and Alternator.

Currently I have the thermostat in the original position, with the spacer, heater hose and temperature sender in the spacer above the thermostat. I'm having trouble with the temperature readings and the heater blows cold at times, so wondering if the heater hose and spacer should be below the thermostat. The hot water i...

Licence plate frame

  Views: 139   Comments: 3

Took off the modern plates and went to the original 1932 plates . Had to re-drill and put new nut certs threads in the spreader bar for the old plates as they are longer and wider ! Added a inch onto the bars that mount on the spreader bar and then bent some tubing to hide the wire ,so it doesn't blow around behind the plate ! Now to find some tag lights and found some small LED lights and made them fit !...

Very Stcky GM Sterring Wheel

  Views: 1910   Comments: 22

This is a strange problem. The steering wheel in my streetrod looks like one off of a 72 - 78 Camaro. It's that plastic 4-spoke unit, that GM used a lot through that period. The previous owner appears to of have liberally coated it with Armour All, I'm guessing. Anyways, it's sticky like fly paper! I thought wet wipes would do the trick, because of the alcohol content, but it only moderates it for a brief time, and still not all the way. Even thought about pulling it and running it t...

Slowly but surely

  Views: 330   Comments: 4

Well gradually the paint and polish is coming to an end but what a pain to sand and polish the underside of the front fenders. I thought the inside of the deck lid was going to do me in, but the underside of the front fenders has that beat. Not only too many sharp corners, but all the surfaces are curved to boot. Finally finished ONE.....not looking forward to the other one. I wonder how long that paint will last once it hits the road? The paint on the underside of the '33 still looks good aft...
