I want to retain an original "use delco fluid" master cylinder cap on a master cylinder rebuild. I went ahead and glass beaded the inside and outside of the cap. I will probably use some of Eastwood's anodized gold paint on the outside of the cap. But what about the inside of the cap that will be subjected to the brake fluid? Any paint or otherwise coatings resistant to brake fluid? All s

Time for a good clean and polish on my 1966 turbo coupe simulated wood on my wood wheel. I assume it is a plastic material. No sanding needed. Just a good clean and polish. All suggestions and opinions are appreciated.......

I purchased these blocks 30 plus years ago, cleaned them, placed them in clear plastic bags and stored them on shelves in house. All three are in excellent condition with no rust whatsoever on any stud ends. The three block numbers are T1018RL, T1209RL and T0212RL. The block number T1209RL has six rectangular brass plates screwed over the oil lifter openings. $150/firm per block. I can

Nothing in the GM chassis shop manual under solenoid rebuild about adding some grease to the solenoid or plunger until I found this. I guess a little dab will do ya!

Picked up some Liquid Electrical Tape (black) in a can today at a NAPA parts store. It worked well to seal the cracks on the field coil assembly. This black liquid looks identical to black plastic dip in a can. Do you think both products are the same?

This field coil assembly is in very good condition other than a few small cracks in the coating as seen in the picture. Most found in used starters today have small cracks. OK to seal cracks with some black silicone sealant without any effect on its operation? Yea or Nea?

Upon disassembling the original AC Delco solenoid off a 1966 starter, I determined I could not flip the washer as mentioned in many previous posts. While at the Corvair Ranch yesterday, I was able to obtain two other washer units that "allow" you to flip the washer. My washer unit in the picture is the one to the left. It appears the shaft end is "punched' which does not allow reuse.

I have seen the 1965 and 1966 instruction sheet for the emergency brake warning light. The 1965 sheet confirms the light is still mounted under the dash, however, the 1966 sheet confirms you must drill a hole thru the dash in the area of the wiper switch (exact location given in sheet) for the correct mounting location. I never had a copy of the 1966 instruction sheet. I did see the NOS li

I have heard that the e brake bulb unit on a 1965 Corvair is mounted below the dash but on the 1966-69 Corvair a hole must be drilled thru the dash in the area of the light switch where it is then mounted. This would be per the NOS mounting instruction sheet that comes with the unit. Anyone familiar with this change?

Seth: There are two course thread holes on each side of the main steering shaft hole in the bottom of the hub which are 180 degrees from each other. Threaded into these holes are 2 round allen head bolts which are 3/4 inch in length. The round head is 1/4 inch in height and the threaded part is 1/2 inch in length. They are not long enough to be wheel/hub removal screws. I am unsure wha

In the hub, some original owners have two round allen head bolts attached on each side of the main steering wheel nut, and some do not. If these are necessary, what is their purpose?
