Maybe they made it to the 1960 4704 specifications. Wouldn't that be a blunder... There will a run on the short push rods. Crawford

The silvertown radial BFG from Coker was perfect on my 1960 speedometer... if that helps make up your mind. Crawford

Put on a rubber glove and press down to feel for it. It’s usually noticeable. Crawford

The early 61 FC reverse shaft is shorter as it has no provision for a reverse switch. Crawford

You guys crack me up! Hillman is ok. Not everything merits GM 300. On the top covers, grade 5 stainless is great. I have never had it corrode in the engine case (unlike GM originals which usually are corroded if not saturated with oil after loosening). Maybe it takes 30 years and I have not had enough observation time… The best approach is to use lock washers and use a bolt length for max thread

I use stainless sometimes instead of the hillman grade 8 but I now use lock washers with the flat washers, too. Full grip! Crawford

Good point. The spare is often not necessary. Since I have one though, I have to store it securely. I am curious to see the Clark bracket. If anyone has a picture, please post it. I will see if I can find an inexpensive Dayton adapter also. Crawford

That’s an interesting idea. Have you seen it gone before? I saw that OPG sells the trunk hook mount. Might be less expensive than an adapter. Crawford

Does anyone have a photo of the wire wheel storage bracket to mount in the engine compartment that Clark’s sold for the late model wire wheel sets a few years ago? I cannot locate a photo of any of these installations. They sold many sets but most photos are of the early installs. It may be easier to add a j bracket to the trunk than fabricating a strap onto the factory tire mount. I want to eva

New piece of late sheet metal for sale, NOS Clark's C2441XL: Left front fender for 1968-69 cars. $500. Shipping high due to its 143 lb volume size. Although I would like to sell the set, I will separate the early pieces listed previously and sell individually: $525 for the 61-64 rear panel (like CX1386) $425 for the 60-64 left coupe quarter panel (like CX5701) $175 for 1960 front pa

They will install but not turn. I learned this the hard way a long time ago! The noses are cut at a different angle from the early gears. Late gears are “bull-nosed” with both a 30 and 45 degree angle cuts. Crawford

Eric, there are many different part numbers after 1960. The materials did change, so did the gears. One generally can't assume anything about a crankshaft without knowing the casting number. Early cranks were forged carbon steel. Later production crankshafts are made of better moly steel. As time went on, the base engines made more power, too, so they improved the material specs across all

To clarify, the gears work with 64-65 car transmission but the counter gear is for early ‘64 applications. Crawford

I recently upgraded a 64 transmission with some new parts from a forum member and have a number of good used parts that are cleaned and serviceable. There is some pitting on the gears but I discarded the ones that were not useable. Caveat: these are for early car ‘64 four speeds. If you don’t know what you have, the easiest way to tell is if your counter gear has one lubrication hole between thir

The ARP pressure plate bolts for the early Mustang are the same 5/16 size and have the shoulder support. Does not come with lock washers - ARP supplies flat. Crawford

Usually countergear bearings according to the shop manual. Could be other bearing and u-joints, too. You have to feel everything for roughness as you rotate various shafts and assemblies while it’s out. CA

These fit 60-69 speedometer housings, Joel, not just early model. AC Spark Plug Co. used this same tried and true design since WWII. See I have used these on 1960, 1962, 1963, 1964 and 1965 frames. Having said that, I have seen that some frames were cast without a bushing using the aluminum. No surprise that these fail and my bushing doesn't work if your frame does not use a bushing.

We know that used speedometers in good shape are harder to find. I had diversified bronze make me a small run of speedometer bushings to replace the worn ones causing needle hop. These are press fit and installation height is important to replicate or speed cup will jam when the jewel plate is tightened. Hardest part is exposing the peened lip on the back of the 1st worm to press out the shaft. T

Wouldn’t it be better to acquire another 64 turbo head? Using a 63 is not a bolt on until you correct the CR to 8.0 to 1. If you weld your existing head, you can install deep seats to prevent future problems. Crawford

I bought a box of harder stainless ones on Amazon so I would have them in quantity for rebuilds. You need three for most 4-speed rebuilds. One for input gear and two for front bearing retention. For input gears, 61-65 is 5/8 and 64-65 is 11/16. The GM parts catalog only gives a parts number, not a size. Crawford
