  1. Run another ground wire from the Electric motor mounts to the chassis.
  2. And maybe someone can tell me why my stop light blinks with the right turn signal?
  3. looks good Bob! Gotta ask where did you find the P15 Convertible model?
  4. Quick update and thanks to the folks that responded. After sending a letter off to George Asche last week with some photos of the part I was after, he called me and we had a nice half hour conversation about the part in question. George explained that this spring is really rare now and he confirmed that the were introduced the later years of the OD production line. George also gave me some advice about the reassembly and some knowledge I did not have about "fast second gears". We talked some more about my convertible and my plans for installing dual intake and exhaust. Long story short, I'll be making the 7-1/2 hour drive soon to speak with him some more and to bring the transmission to get some Asche magic done to it. Will also drop off the carter carbs I've collected for him to build me a matched set. Looking forward to my first visit with George after several years of telephone conversations.
  5. Thanks for that! No wonder it’s not in the illustration. I’ll see if I can hunt down that bulletin.
  6. And there she is ready to be cleaned, while we wait for the new bearings to show up.
  7. Spent the weekend breaking down the OD I bought from Paul Flaming a couple years back, refreshing bearing and gaskets. This is the second R10G that I’ve done and I’m hoping one of you might recognize the part in the accompanying photo. (Reminiscing on the cheering and advice I had from Don Coatney as I made progress). The part appears to be a brass spring bushing, and two or the spring tabs seem to be broken off. I can’t find this part in either of the R10G or standard trans parts diagrams that I have. It came from inside the front of the synchronize after I had removed the input shaft. Next step is to send a picture to George Asche to see if he might know, or have a spare.
  8. Thanks Dave, we’ve got our eyes on that as potential stop enroute. I’ll be calling them this coming week to talk with them. We are looking for a nice roadside style seafood restaurant in the area between Newport and Fall River, I’d you have any suggestions we’d love to hear them. cheers - Mark

  10. Please share this to your fellow enthusiasts!
  11. Greg G and I would be thrilled if you would download This advert and share this with your best friend and chums. Registration form following shortly!
  12. Loren I have one on my stock that I did not use. I’ll find it and send you a photo. If you’re interested we can put a good deal in play. mark
  13. Bought several from Mike for cars I've exported, they are good quality and nearly exact copies of the original.

  16. Hey all, Just getting around to responding here. Glad to see the early positive responses. We had a fantastic time last year (and several years in the past) gathering a ragtag group of folks that have reported having a good time following us around New York and New England on our past tours. This year we are really hopeful to up our participation and are planning a real cool itinerary for three days of fun and touring. I'd really appreciate it if you could all send me an email - mark@rdusaclassics.com - so I can add you to my email list. Having a real gauge of participation will help us size the Friday / Saturday hotel appropriately. As soon as we have some finalized plans are locked down I will send them out so folks can start planning. In general you can expect the following; Thursday Sep 17 - Muster point in or nearby Bolton Massachusetts for cars that want to arrive early. Lodging at our local Boxborough Host Hotel is nearby our planned first stop, clean, and not expensive. https://www.boxbororegency.com for those that want to get in Wednesday or sooner. Once we have folks collected, we will head to the Collings Foundation in Stow Massachusetts for a tour of their new museum, and potentially a tour of the owners personal multi-million dollar brass era collection. After the tour we will drive secondary roads south about an hour to our weekend hotel and get situated. We will be targeting a hotel location in the Fall River / New Bedford area of Massachusetts, but will adjust that based upon hotel negotiations and further tour stops. Anyone wishing to arrive earlier in the week would be welcome, we can help facilitate local sights and services. Friday Sep 18 - We will start the day with breakfast at the hotel, and head off New Bedford at noon. Friday afternoon we may try to organize a tour through the "cottages" of Newport Rhode Island. We will reassemble at the hotel around 4:30 to greet new arrivals and kick off our PICNIC. In true fashion we invite participants to bring a little something their home to share, we will facilitate with a BBQ grille, utensils, plates, cups etc. Lawn chairs, Libations and good humor are a must. Saturday Sep 19 - After breakfast we will head to Battleship Cove and a self guided tour the USS Massachusetts in nearby Fall River MA. Should make for a real nice backdrop if we are able to get the cars/owners lined up for a group photo. We will reserve the afternoon for some driving in the picturesque town of New Bedford where our goal will be to see sights and potentially tour the whaling museum. Early evening will find us headed to a local restaurant in hopes of tasting some of the local fare. We will arrange for a group fixed price meal and hopefully get us all into one room. Stay tuned for more info. Sunday Sep 20 - Sunday morning we will wrap up at the hotel and head our Plymouth's to Plymouth in hopes of gathering our cars at the 1620 rock for a memorable photo or two. Plymouth recently enhanced their on street parking lot along the oceanfront and it is a handy walk to all the shops and tourist stuff along Water Street. From this point the itinerary is turned back to our participants and you are free to tour the area and head home at will. We expect to be wrapped up by noon, however local restaurants are plentiful and good. So that's it for the moment - locals please chime in if there's a stop that we should consider along the route or potentiall pre/post tour. all the best, Mark PLEASE NOTE THE EMAIL ADDRESS IN GREGS ORIGINAL MESSAGE ABOVE IS INCORRECT. THE CORRECT EMAIL ADDRESS IS mark@rdusaclassics.com

    What is it?

    Trico vacuum pump. Got one new old stock on my shelf.
  21. Also used to hold the trunk handle in place. I couldn’t find anything remotely Similar, so I cross drilled the handle shaft and installed and retainer clip.
  22. There’s a decent rebuild video someone posted on YouTube recently that explains the tear down, machining and rebuild. I also posted some snapshots from an old magazine series on the documents section of this forum a couple years ago.
