Cooling Fan Relay Kit Any Feedback

  Views: 187   Comments: 5

I am replacing an adjustable relay in my Cobra.

This looks like a good set up to run off a thermostat and a manual switch. What do you think???

Installing air conditioning to your hot rod? Need a cooling fan relay to operate off of a thermostatic switch and when your a/c is on? The dual activation cooling fan relay kits by Painless Performance are exactly what you need. Only a few minutes for the installation and your cooling fan will come on when the engine reaches the preset temper...

Looking for a Electro Lock with the pop out for a 1931 Chevy

Driving your car and enjoying it is what this hobby is all about. Anyway, for a driver you can go with an aftermarket electro lock and it will give you years of good service. Aftermarket electro locks are fairly easy to locate and you can pick up a new old replacement stock unit for around $75 or so. The OEM "pop out" electro locks are harder to locate and they usually command a lot more money as well.

If you have any ideas pleas...

Steering Column Question

  Views: 193   Comments: 10

Need a little help here guys. Can anybody tell me on an after market steering column like Flaming River or Ididit, is there any play in and out on the shaft? That meaning if the column is mounted and hooked to nothing, could you push the shaft up into the column like an inch? Also, when you mount the borgeson joint to the column, how close should it be to the bottom of the tube? And for that matter, how much shaft should in each joint? Flush to the bottom of the collar or what?

I've got a p...

1966 Cobra Rear Axle Bearings

  Views: 196   Comments: 6

1966 Cobra Rear Axle Bearings. I noticed a little gear oil leaking out of the axle housing on my 1966 Cobra. I removed the axle on the passengers side and see that the o ring that is on the outside of the sealed axle bearing is hard and flat. The bearing is in good condition but the O ring is shot. I have been looking for just the O ring but no one seems to have the O ring. For that matter advanced auto does not even stock the bearing. I am thinking of buying the new bearing and just robbing the...

1966 Cobra Rear Axle Seal Repair

  Views: 116   Comments: 3

1966 Cobra Rear Axle Seal Repair. I pulled the rear axles on my cobra to repair a small seal leak. The rear end is a Ford 9 inch after market built rear end. The bearings are sealed and use an O ring on the outer race to keep the gear oil from leaking out. I went to the local parts house and what a real waste of time that was. No one there had ever seen this type of bearing and for sure did not know anything about a 1966 Cobra. So after extensive internet research I was unable to locate the O ri...

1941 Chrysler Royal Hood

  Views: 172   Comments: 2

1941 Chrysler Royal Hood. I finally located the hood for the 41 Chrysler. The hood was lost off the car when it was shipped down from Missouri. It is hard to believe that a person you are buying a car from would not even bother to verify the hood was bolted down and that the trunk was not latched down or at least tied down. One would think the driver should have taken 5 minutes and looked the car over before taking off. I would have never imagined the level of stupidity associated with these ...

Chevrolet 350 coolant direction

  Views: 160   Comments: 5

I have a spacer in my thermostat housing so that I can run the supply line to the heater core out of it, as both locations in the intake are blocked with A/C and Alternator.

Currently I have the thermostat in the original position, with the spacer, heater hose and temperature sender in the spacer above the thermostat. I'm having trouble with the temperature readings and the heater blows cold at times, so wondering if the heater hose and spacer should be below the thermostat. The hot water i...

Licence plate frame

  Views: 128   Comments: 3

Took off the modern plates and went to the original 1932 plates . Had to re-drill and put new nut certs threads in the spreader bar for the old plates as they are longer and wider ! Added a inch onto the bars that mount on the spreader bar and then bent some tubing to hide the wire ,so it doesn't blow around behind the plate ! Now to find some tag lights and found some small LED lights and made them fit !...

Very Stcky GM Sterring Wheel

  Views: 1890   Comments: 22

This is a strange problem. The steering wheel in my streetrod looks like one off of a 72 - 78 Camaro. It's that plastic 4-spoke unit, that GM used a lot through that period. The previous owner appears to of have liberally coated it with Armour All, I'm guessing. Anyways, it's sticky like fly paper! I thought wet wipes would do the trick, because of the alcohol content, but it only moderates it for a brief time, and still not all the way. Even thought about pulling it and running it t...

Slowly but surely

  Views: 319   Comments: 4

Well gradually the paint and polish is coming to an end but what a pain to sand and polish the underside of the front fenders. I thought the inside of the deck lid was going to do me in, but the underside of the front fenders has that beat. Not only too many sharp corners, but all the surfaces are curved to boot. Finally finished ONE.....not looking forward to the other one. I wonder how long that paint will last once it hits the road? The paint on the underside of the '33 still looks good aft...

Headlight Recommendation Needed

  Views: 290   Comments: 6

Guys a few years ago I replaced the sealed beams in my Duece Roadster with then "new" halogen bulbed aftermarket lights. I put them in my Guide housings. The location tabs weren't quite right......and the beam just doesn't get it. There seems to be no real focus and adjusting them is worthless. Yes they were cheapies that I bought a t the Nationals I think. Anyway, can anyone recommend a good set of lights? I'm heading to Knoxville and would like to pick a set up there if possible......but I wa...

302 Windsor double alternator pulley setup

Hi all I thought I would post some photos of my double alternator pulley setup as I couldn't find any information online or photos when looking for advice.

I purchased a 200amp Powermaster alternator, fitted it to the Limousine but we had constant belt slip.
A serpentine belt system was my next option to try to avoid the belt slip but we decided to go with a Powermaster double pulley.
Pretty straight froward job.
The engine is a 302 windsor i...
