  1. THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!

    • WANTED
    • USED

    Radiator shop called today and told me that my radiator is shot. Need another one as the only radiator shop within 150 miles wants $670 to recore mine. Any leads or radiators for sale would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    NO VALUE SPECIFIED

  2. No lathe or mill. I always wanted them as I can use them to make parts for my antique firearms. Just haven't found one and no one to teach me.
  3. There would have to be someone wanting them. I'm sure they wouldn't pay $175 for mine when they could buy factory made stuff for the same price. 2 of the bolts are not something that I could find I'm sure. They have very large washer at the head all one unit. I just blasted mine clean, chased the threads and reused all the bolts, washers and short tubes. None were badly deteriorated.
  4. I've been searching for the rubber body mounts for the 55. Cheapest that I can find is $175 for 28 pieces of rubber. I decided to make my own. 1. I bought a sheet of 1/2" and a sheet of 5/8" thick rubber. 2. cut out the 14 2 1/8" x 1/2" square pieces. 3. used a spade bit 1 1/4" to make the inset for the steel washer in the bottom. 4. next I drilled the 3/4" hole through the middle using the hole that the point of the spade bit made when it exited on the other side to center the 3/4" arbor bit. That finished the square parts. 5. the round parts I cut out using a 1 3/8" hole saw 6. I then used the same 3/4" arbor bit for the center hole. Total cost $35.
  5. Turnagain arm has some interesting weather to say the least. Glad that I don't live around it anywhere.
  6. I really need to empty the shop and get it all cleaned. But, it's a bit hard to do with Alaskan winters. lol
  7. Thanks Stratman. It helps that I retired in July. Lots more time. If someone wants to invest a bit of time here's the blog of the coupe rebuild. http://p15-d24.com/topic/35504-started-the-teardown-and-now-the-build-up/?tab=comments#comment-361566 Not many videos but I did photo record of most things.
  8. Thanks guys. I finished my 47 Dodge 3 window last March. I'm pretty sure that the wife decided that she likes it when I'm in the garage and not the house so she went out and bought this. lol
  9. Have you seen their prices? If I remember correctly each square one is at or over $22 and the round one is $7 Those are the ones that I need but I need 14 of each. There has to be a cheaper way. California Pontiac Restoration has something that they say fits. But there's no photo or drawing. I dislike buying something that I have no idea is what I need. CPR's numbers are I think C504373R, C560957R and maybe C519589R. I am going to phone them to see if I can get some kind of photo or something. Well CPR has them at $11 per mount. Times 14. Guess I'll have to bite the bullet on this one.
  10. All of the photos of chevy mounts that I have seen, both the rubber pieces are round. The ones off of my wagon have 1 round and 1 square with a metal insert in the square one that protrudes through the hole in the round one. I think that the Chevy ones would work but I'm not positive.
