    cooling circuit pressure....

    hello! greetings from Belgium, where the chocolate is never far away and the beer is always cold.... Can I ask a simple question. Is the cooling circuit of my stock Cranbrook engine pressurised or not during operation? I did not have the original radiator cap and I have put in a radiator cap which I bought at Rockauto. (the one with a red discharge valve). I get the feeling that the presure in the cooling system is fairly high. Is this the cap to use or do I need one for a totally open system..? Thanks for the advice.... Franky

    Wheel cylinders

    I saw huge price differences and I cannot detect what justifies buying the more expensive ones... Prices go from 15 Usd to 50 or more... I bet they are made at the same plant. Any toughts..?

    thanks for the invitation, but I won't be able to make it. I live far away over the pond and the floors of my plymouth are not watertight... maybe another time. Enjoy the company and the food and make sure there is some Belgian beer available... grtz,

    that sounds like it.....unfortunately I only have the cage (no numbers....). if I could get a cage and motor and blower wheel all together I think I could make it work... Anyway , thank you very much for going to all this trouble for me... i appreciate this big time. I am curious for the pics, take care Franky

    Hello Andy! hope you're fine! Mmmm... I see what you mean but... you do not find salvage yards in Belgium with old car wrecks, older then 20 years and for sure none with American cars... 6 volt is a major problem... I would like to keep the car as original as possible but in the end I might have to fabricate something of my own. From what I have seen indeed the defroster blower hasn't got a lot of different types. I have also found the blower motor on EBAY but not the blower wheel (as it is called) so far. Now my hope is to find a forum friend who has something laying around in a box in the shed somewhere and who would like to sell it to me. He'll get a box of chocolates on top of the selling price.... :-) take care Franky

    defroster blower (550 system)

    hi, that would be great!!! unfortunately I do not have the old one... That is just my problem I have no references but I have noticed that most of the units look very much the same. I think we can make it work... Could you make a picture and/or write down some measurements... I would appreciate this very much. Thanks and greetings from Belgium.
