General Discussion / Re: Power convertable tops ?

Wasn't the linkage different? A friend installed a power top on a '67 and it never worked right. He was told the arms were different.

Chick, by now you should have gotten your new issue of AA magazine. The ballot is in there. I will say I have never voted before but this year I will.  I will be in class 22 I, the military class,  going for a 100 year badge. Stop by on Saturday.

General Discussion / AACA board of directors

OK, guys, pay attention. He would never toot his own horn so I will do it for him. Our own Phil, Lakeholme, is in the running for a seat on the board of directors of AACA. We need some new blood and Phil would be a good choice. If you are not an AACA member, you should be and you can join for half price for the rest of the year AND have the privilege of voting in Phil to an important position. There are some very important decisions to be made in the next few years in AACA. The AACA needs some new ideas of how to encourage younger members to join. The new building is going to take lots of thought to pull it off and not put the club in the hole financially. If you choose not to become a member encourage anyone you know that is a member to vote for Phil. Good luck to you, buddy.

Ed, I have read that 396 used the same rear springs as convertibles. Is that true? I need rear springs and no one lists BB springs.

Thanks Steve, but I was born in the last century. I don't text and I don't have a phone that I can email from. AT least not that I know of. Just trying to get you guys to try a little vinegar on a piece of semi-bad chrome. It really does work and it's cheap.  I use it to clean radiators too. Last one I did was on a 1924 of my buddies. Put it in for about a week and drove it just about every day. Yucky stuff came out.

Restoration / rusty chrome
« on: August 28, 2018, 10:38:44 PM »
I just cleaned my BB valve covers. They are decent driver quality but the factory chrome was poor. In the grooves at the bolt holes there is very little chrome, platers call it a shadow where it does not plat correctly because of the shape. I used paper towels soaked in white vinegar . Laid them in place about a day or two and it removed almost all traces of the rust down to bare metal. I scrubbed it with cleaner and a stiff brush. Then I dabbed a little aluminum paint where it was bare and blended it and they don't look too bad. Guess I will see how long to lasts.

As suggested use the GM trouble shooting guide. It works, and tells you what order to check things in.

And I have it go the other way. Sold a car took $100 deposit and the guy never came back. I called and he rudely told me he was eating dinner. Never heard from him again. Ever since you give me ALL the money and I give you ALL the product, no favors.

Eric, I hope this gets resolved to your satisfaction. It sure seems to me the seller misrepresented the car and knew it.

There's a guy that shows up at Carlisle events with a truck load of blocks. He will stamp them while you wait for any car you want.
