  1. Fluid drive

    Preferably copper..
  2. Fluid drive

    Been in enginering for many years and here working with couplers like the fluid drive concept.. over oiling causes problems .. oil levels are key..the method is 10 to or 10 past for oil levels.. in this case it would be 10 past where the plug is situated..
  3. Fluid drive

    Do not over fill fluid drive assembly.. it will leak.. just a suggestion..
  4. fuel gauge, 1937 Pymouth sedan

    Tank gauge voltage is very low.. you need to adjust that float level.. check it..

    Hi.. correct.. many ways to kill a cat.. but lubrication is key.. I have stripped this car completely.. In the rebuilding phase.. have worked slowly on other vechiles and broken the glass.. Glass for the D24 is hard to get.. if not at all... I thank you for your input.. Believe patience prevails..
