National seal #9845 according to a post Steve G made on the forum. Some time back! Hope this helps! I believe it has two lips on the inside to get better sealing. That was the one I used when I replaced mine! Hope this helps!

Well our temps have came up some. Highest since I posted this, was 22°, most days have stayed around 7-10°. Now we are running out of water! Main lines are bursting all over the area. Had a doctor's appointment yesterday and had to drive almost 10 miles of detours to get home. Every road I tried to take was blocked while they dug up the road to fix the leaks. Schools are loosing heat from

Well don't know about you, but it is could in KY! Been this way since Christmas, this morning has been the lowest so far. A blistering -2° with windchill of -10°. The furnace has ran continually for the last 3 days! Haven't been in the shop since before Christmas to spend time with the family and it takes forever to heat the shop up and for it to feel warm, when it is this cold. If I w

Here is a link to one brand. There are many many choose from! Just type in the search, "paint mask for signs" that should bring up a number.

You indicated that the body shop guy has a system to cut vinyl. Just have him look in his book for vinyl and supplies. That is where I bought it. Shouldn't be difficult for him to find. I'll try and locate a link for it, just in case he hasn't seen it before.

Steve have you considered using paint mask? In the sign business I have I use it to cut Stencil's and then apply it to the painted surface. Paint the lettering or art work, then remove the paint mask. The good thing about it is the adhesive isn't as aggressive as what is on the vinyl, and it removes easily, without disturbing the paint it is applied on. I bought it in a roll, just like the

Thanks Steve, hopefully I have a smile and not a frown! But I think other than touching up the adjustment on my rear brakes and finalizing the adjustment on my emergency brake, it should be good to go! Hopefully I'll know tomorrow for sure! Thanks Mel I can't remember the brand of the regulator right now, but I'll send you a pic. I'm sure they could sell a bunch of them if it did that, f

Want to thank everyone for the advice and help! As was expected, the newer voltage regulator was my issue. Replaced it with the old one, which I knew worked, and all is good. The light is out and the lifters are now silent! Yehaw! Tomorrow I hope to take it out for its maiden voyage with the new engine, transmission, and differential. My only concern was the differential was unknown if i

Mike I have done that already. Did that before I put it back on the car, after cleaning it up and painting. It was working fine and charging when it was on the old engine and I didn't touch the generator before putting it back on the new engine. But if nothing seems to work I will check it again. I guess something could have happened while it has been sitting, waiting to be reinstalled. But

Well got the time today to start the car again. Started right up, was still making quite a bit of noise but it did get quite after some time. Got the pg trans filled with fluid and then decided to check out the voltage regulator. It so happens the new regulator is one of the newer non adjustable units. But I could energize the points on the coil for the battery and the second coil going to

Frank I forgot to mention, I did check the field wire to ground yesterday. It reads zero so it is grounded. But I didn't get to look at it yesterday. Things took longer and I didn't get home in time to do anything else, except check for ground on the field wire.

Well I had planned to run the engine more yesterday and check out the gen light, but wanted to finish up installing the rest of the sheet metal parts and air cleaner and such. It is cold and if I ran the car I would lose the heat while I had the door open. Then I wouldn't be able to do anything the rest of the day, because of exhaust fumes. So today it is supposed to be warmer, around 50.

Steve when I took all the wiring out of the car, I used a label maker and tagged every wire and connector. Just to avoid any chance of connecting things incorrectly. I tore the wiring harness down and checked all the wires and cleaned all the pins and connectors, and then rewrapped the harness. So it looks brand new. And all the wires where good, no brittle insulation on each wire.

Thanks guys. Some things to do. I hadn't polarized the generator when I started it, but did after I shut it off. So I'll see today. But yes the em, or at least the 60 , uses 3 large sheet metal screws. I have had the battery disconnected before and the light didn't come on, but then it was just a short time. But i still polarized the generator anyway, then. This time it has been some time s

OK as an update, I finally got the 60 to the point of where I started it for the first time with the new engine! Exciting day for me, even though I hoped to have it running by Thanksgiving. But life got in the way! So what I noticed today was the generator light stayed on, even after the engine started. Now the only thing that has changed was I'm using what looked like a new voltage regulator

Here is the info in the FAQ section that was referred too! Hope this helps! And yes Nick, while cleaning my wheel wells, I couldn't read the stamped Vin because of it being blocked by the suspension. I could see a small part of it, but not all. Only way for sure is remove the front suspension! But then again, if they can only see the last few numbers, it may be enough for them. But I do

Thanks guys for the additional info. I guess for now, I will hold off on this. Thought now would be a good time, while I had axles out and getting ready to install. But it seems I either need to forget this plans or get more parts for when I do! Thanks so much!

Matt and Frank thanks! Well it seems I didn't keep any shoes. Didn't even think about them. But modding the shoes and drilling could work I guess. Or just buy the correct shoes! Crawford thanks for the info on the pivot bolt. I may have to start looking for backing plates if drilling isn't an option. Didn't know the pivot bolt was different diameter.

I'm thinking of adding all of the self adjusting hardware on my 60. Of course Clark's doesn't list it, since 60's didn't have them. I have collected all the parts I need, which are used, and have had them for some time now. My question, is there any reason that I can not use self adjusting brakes on a 60? I can't imagine why I couldn't, but asking just the same. I did however purchase ne

Dave here is the plate end on the tool. In this picture I'm getting ready to install the bearing. But you can some what see how it is made. Was going to see if I still have the paper work on the puller, but it slipped my mind. I will try to remember to check tomorrow.

Based on the info wagon master shared, I might have used 64 backing plates. I'll have to go look to see, since he shared the what and why? I have been working on this car for a very long time and things get done and then you go back and wonder, why did I do this, this way! I do remember that I needed the larger hole so I could use the larger bearings and there was a spacer there, which Dad
