Re: Any Hints on preserving/strengthening a Fiber Gear

Thanks Tim, Dan : I talked to Glen and he has the gears and the hubs. I'll try to get a picture of my gear and post it. I am getting things cleaned up so I can have measurements, etc. and a list ready for Glen next time I talk to him.

I am just now getting to the water pump on my 08 model SR. The water pumps were built into the radiator similar to the first 2500 T's, but ran off a gear mounted on the flywheel which is on the front of the engine. Mesh was adjusted through rubber pads/shims on the radiator mounting. I found that th...

Hood former, gas cap, radiator cap, timer cover and front spring shackles. I will be stopping by Tulare so could pickup there.

Re: How to Paint a T?

Having painted a few of various years, I would strongly suggest using a self etching primer on any bare metal. Then put on the primer of your choice. The bottom layer of self etching ensures a good bond with the old metal you will be covering, and often some of the stripped metal sets a while as you...

I tried this on my 22 coupe with original AC's and hassle shocks, found it easier to use rods and guides, the routing of cables was somewhat difficult, you could just bend the rods.
