  1. thanks for the info guys! I can move on with this! best regards, Franky
  2. hello! just removed the gauge sender from the tank... the gasket to seal off the sender from the tank was made out of cork but is now totally gone. What is the best choice gasket material to make a tight seal? Has someone tried an o ring made out of gasoline resistant rubber? Since I am over the pond in Belgium, ordering a new one at the known places in the US is out of the question. I have to make my own. Any suggestions? Does the tank need to be grounded properly to get the gauge working correctly? If you look at the attached picture you see that the steel wire connecting the float has been soldered. Is this original or has someone before me been playing around with it? Any help is highly apreciated. Thanks Franky
  3. Hi,

    I am restoring a '53 Cranbrook convertible as well, so I am really interested in the process you have gone through.

      Have you seen the Cranbrook convertibles in "The Blob" and "Where The Boys Are?"

      In "the blob" I have seen it but the other movie that you mention is unknown to me...grtz

      Another blue one. The film is actually quite good. Unusually forward thinking for the USA of 1960 and a classic car spotter's smorgasbord.

  8. I use a 20/50 multigrade oil and my needle does not move a bit away from 40 or slightly higher. Not if I am idling nor if I am running at 100km/hr.
  9. Happy B-day Mr Asche. The carb that you made for me works like a charm.... thanks again.
  10. also try to apply the force as closely to the head as possible. Use a good brand of penetrating oil and some mild heat..
  11. hello, pastries... one of the reasons I can't seem to get my weight under control, haha.. and the beer, and the chocolates... What did you visit in Belgium? Planning on coming back some day...?
