I feel your pain. When my 65 was leaking I ended up installing a different tube. Not what you want to read I'm sure. (my 3rd drain) In another post they were talking about washers for flared gas lines. I don't know, but would such a thing exist for a PG tube/pan connection? I bet someone here can answer that. FWIW, if the transmission fluid is new, I wouldn't hesitate to collect it into

The one-way valve you speak of, I have known them to be called a backflow preventer. It keeps boiler water from mixing with domestic (drinking) water.

50 years from now I won't be here. Even if I were I alive, most likely I wouldn't know my name. If I didn't know my name, I wouldn't know where I lived. Sooooooo….. I couldn't drive my Corvair because I couldn't find my way home.:D

v8vair, I had the same problem with my '61 500. this is what I did in case I ever find a rear window weatherstrip... I used the weatherstrip for use with the stainless trim. I then got the stainless trim that goes around the rear window, roughed it up with sandpaper and then painted it flat black. Once installed, a quick look and you'd never notice that is was stainless trim. It w

When I woke up this morning, I thought to myself, "Self, I wonder if I can get some financial advice on the forum today". I mean, isn't that where the experts live? Now that I lit a fire under somebodys a$$, you should thank me. You won't have to take your Geritol today!

Seriously? It's delusional to believe GM cares about some working stiff on the line in one of their plants. It's all about the share holders. Maybe the next time they need to be bailed out don't do it, let them fail.

Nobody thought these would be used for 50+ years Good post. A small dab of Di-Electric grease will help the slide part move smoothly. Murphy.

Don't be so quick to dismiss what someone has to offer for information. In the video I mentioned, there are some gm part numbers that could be of use.

Richard, On YouTube, search "1963 Chevrolet self adjusting brakes". You'll find a Chevy training video that explains in great detail how to install the adjusters on a car without them. I have the parts to do my '61, just haven't had the time yet.

If you bought your sender from the BIG vendor, they send a note to tell you what to do to the sender to make it read correctly. Of course I can't remember what, but I tried it and screwed it up. Found a NOS sender, going to try that instead.

You never know what you'll find. One time I was removing the rear crossmember from my '61 coupe and found that one of the four bolts holding it to the car was missing. (right side, inboard bolt). Had to cut sheet metal behind the rear seat to access the bolt. It's a caged nut that I had to re-tap. I think it got stripped at the factory and the line worker let it go. Also found a 1960 penn

I like cnicol's idea about clone sensors. Had to leave the truck at the tire store. Have it back and all is good. They're honest, manager said we screwed it up, we'll start over. Refreshing to hear some honesty. Can't ask for more than that.

Well, I'm off to the tire store. I'll mention about the over-inflation. Will be back later with a report.
