  1. Weather vent leaking

    No option but to take the whole damn thing apart ,clean it and replace! Buy a new vent seal and you are good to go.
  2. everdry kit

    I have the kit on my 41 with a split hood and it really works! I don't have them on my 48 with alligator hood which still fills up with water in the plug recesses when it rains HARD!
  3. Rebuilding Carb...need help with strange part

    only the ball goes in that hole ,the pin is for the dash pot i think
  4. How Many Drive Their Old Mopars In Rain

    ENGLAND=RAIN. They are built to be driven in all weathers
  5. Duel carb intake

    I have one on my 41 windsor from George ,it works perfectly ,highly recommended.

  11. This Evening's Cruise...With Running Updates

    Great post Keith ,nice to hear all the news and will be very interested to see the comparison tests ,hard to track those down online!
  12. Car shows

    A general question ,in the Uk most (nearly all) car shows ask for 5 or 10 pounds admission or charge for a car to enter a show. One I asked about today said if I paid 20 on the gate I would be ALLOWED in!!! Surely if its a car show ,the cars ARE the show ,without us ,they have nothing! Whats the protocol in the states?
  13. P-15 Convertible tacking strip

    they are indeed oem ,and they work ,just need adjusting answering into the switch ,a job for autumn. Still 6 volt of course ,not much choice with fluid drive!
  14. P-15 Convertible tacking strip

    I wonder why my Chrysler has twin electric motors and not vacuum? Price? Selling point?
