Great pics.
They could be up a little bit more, but they did a nice job, esp compare to the crap that is out there....

Originality / Re: Eaton Fan Clutch, but is it right?
« Last post by Danzo on August 30, 2016, 01:22:10 AM »
Bringing this back to life. Was it ever determined if this clutch fan was an original piece? I just removed one from an 05A Norwood Z that is identical right down to the Eaton stamp and black paint.
Thanks, Doc.

Good job Jerry! The picture I currently have of the large captured washer fender screw to cowl which I believe might be the same manufacturer as yours is a lousy picture and need to try again.


Bryon, you mentioned you have noticed with the screw for the hinge to fender both what the AIM calls out, 1" captured washer, and the 3/4" captured washer type that was in this car and what seems to be the norm. I'm curious as to how often you have noticed the 1" captured washer screw being used in that hinge to fender and if noticed on 67, 68, & 69 year models, or possibly on a specific year? Thanks!

Yeah it's hard stuff.  I wasn't drilling my OEM stuff though.  What I was doing was taking bronze bushings and sticking them on the lathe to widdle the OD down to fit the OEM size holes in the levers. They fit the rods fine.  Problem was that they get pretty thin, plus you're still dealing with impregnated rubber at the shifter body, so it turned into being a lot of effort with little gain.  Not to mention there still isn't stop bolts.   

This is what got me onto those 2 shifters offered earlier in this thread.  I got lucky that it just so happens Jimmy is trying one.

Thanks Ban617, I think so too! It was built February 1969, the 02D on the tag is fourth week of February.

Jimmy, as far as headers and ground clearance goes, I think what you have is as good as it gets.  Very few headers out there tuck up that nicely.   With a dozen cars in the stable, most have headers from various brands and nothing is that tight under any of the cars.

$630 for coated headers that fit that nicely is well worth the money.  I've spent $800 on headers that don't fit that good on a BBC application here.

Ground clearance is a concern on the Z because these things sit so darn low to begin with.  Great pics.

Comp plus rods are lighter in weight than GM OEM rods.  They worked fine in many cars for many years.

None of the Hurst parts are easy to drill. Very hard stuff.
