Re: Removing knock off spinners.....

thanx TdF...i have sucha "socket: a big truck axle one with a 3/4 ratchet and welded 6" extension. when wedded to a long pipe as a " cheater", you must really apply duct tape to both the socket and the ears to prevent the socket from digging into the ears....no matter how you slice it, there's some ...

Re: 330 GTC PW swich

Had superior communications with Jim Simpson O,D,D parts....extremely knowledgeable and well organized (what would you expect from an engineer?) He knew the switch, ahemm, backwards and forwards. Sent readable diagrams for the best way to do this....no tiny schematics. More than fairly priced and fa...

330 GTC PW swich

Forgive my X-posting here, but is there a source to rebuild these? The springs in the unit are weak and so the switch wants to remain "on" and not return to the "neutral" position and thus burned up a motor. A good used one? thanx steve

Tom's video debut...

see his latest blog...a neat intro into more "social media. Great history and run through of his 330 America now on YouTube.
His previous experience in AV quickly and clearly "shows" through. Fun to watch and hope to see more. Not bad Thespian skills either! s

Re: Brake Bleeding Trouble

Back in the summer and fall of '19 i had a helluva time bleeding the brakes on my GTC ...which I'd done easily many times before using a modestly powered medical vacuum setup called a Gomco. Proved it was the MC and sen the MC out and twice the return repairs also failed. About that time a master Fe...

Re: 330 GTC project

Tom, as you know, I'm one of those owners who likes to "jump into" some discussions. Why? Because I can't help myself. On the other hand, the site really thrives on the banter and might be more mundane and boring without it. I agree that 85% of the comments do not add knowledge to the auction, but t...

Re: 330 GTC project

Probably lots of us have been following this along. Seemingly largely original car, but many unknowns to be roadworthy. I'd be curious to know, given the info we all have, would you do a leak down? Go through the algorithm to see if could be started? Almost certainly, every system will need signific...

Lower radiator hose on a Daytona

Is the radiator hose (part #42 TAV9) that runs from the pump outlet to the special three way pipe and then on to the lower radiator orifice a special hose? I ask because the pump outlet has a rim/ridge that is of a slightly greater diameter than the smaller diameter on the three way pipe. (that pipe...

Re: Removing knock off spinners.....

Thanx Tom, to me, it does intuitively seem like hitting the KO on the ground would lessen the stress or impact on the bearing. It will certainly lessen the stress on my marriage...won't need to have my wife up in the car holding the brake pedal down! Thanx again. steve
