  1. Thanks for the info, it sounds spot on. I ordered the new ignition switch, see how it goes. I now realize, the ignition switch on the chevy is 2 pieces. Going to have to eat a little crow here ... I knew at the time they were 2 pieces, I just forgot. Was when @Sniper posted a rockauto link to the switch ... the light went on. My problem at the time, the tumblers were wore out, you did not need a key to start it. I wanted to fix that, same time it had a aftermarket security system on it ... goofy thing I had to cut off of the steering column with a cut off wheel, just so stock tumble

    V-belt Tension?

    Ah, the German method, gutentite. Learned that one from an old boss of mine, born, raised and educated in Germany. His Dad was in the Wehrmacht and wore out three horses going into Russia, spent ten year in Russia after the war ended before they let him go. He had an interesting outlook on things. Good engineer and a car nut, though his preferences ran to Mercedes.

    V-belt Tension?

    Well, it is in the book...... Must be about a 2.2-4.1 on the gutentight snugness scale.

  5. In second diagram with brake switch, the front and rear lights are seperated. When brake is applied and signal is on, the opposite rear bulb is illuminated continously. Otherwise a seperate brake lamp is required.

  6. George Asche sent me a "faster" set of gears for the 2nd. I now make 60 kmh / 37 mph easily in 2nd. 120 kmh / 75 mph were painful without overdrive. With George´s overdrive mine makes 140 kmh/ 85 mph with ~ 2200 rpm - if really wanted... Greetings from Düsseldorf! Go just a salute to Sweden.

  11. RE: leads through rectangular opening In similar applications, I have potted wires through case openings by using masking tape as a form or backing and carefully applying black RTV silicone, being careful to have the leads spaced at least one wire diameter...this effectively casts a flexible seal that is economical, robust, and easy to replace when required

  12. I guess we are far enough along to safely say I'm buying this one. At least the loan is approved, insurance bought, and I spent all day pushing paperwork. Getting to the last of it and should have the paper end of the purchase in the mail Fri or Sat. Some pics from the seller while I wait. Hope the Coupe looks and runs half as good on arrival. Kinda 2 dream cars for me and Dad....Ol Bessy the Sedan back on the road and a 37 Dodge Business Coupe to bumble around with her.Hopefully Dad/Mom are serious about moving close to us in the next months. (Dad is 81, Mom is 79 i drive from NC to VA once

  13. Hey ya'll. Thanks for adding me to the forum. Taking a bit of a leap of faith by bringing up the dreaded "kustom" word, but I'll give some back story. I grew up in Northern California going to shows with my pops and always liked the kustom crowd. I remember as a youngster seeing a '51 Merc with a DeSoto grill for the first time and telling my dad, "I want one of those". His response was something along the lines of "Sure kid, you've got champagne taste on a beer budget". Being that young I didn't know the grill wasn't original to the car. Fast forward many years and many cars later

  14. Restarting my project after years of it sitting. Got loads of NOS parts and it is in need of some TLC. Need to start on the engine now. Original Where we are at

  15. Glad you got it fixed ... I bought a rebuilt from rockauto, I thought the price was reasonable, and I kept my core and rebuilt it, put it away for future use. I think Mikes Carburetors made a great video to show how to assemble these simple carbs, I would send my carb to him for rebuild if I needed.
