Re: Power steering cylinder

They do it by size, so get out your micrometer. I took the seals to them, and they measured them, and then came up with the proper seals. The biggest difference, is that they are the "loaded" seals,...

Re: Power steering cylinder

This is from a 53' Power steering manual, but should be the same process. Maybe it will help.

Re: Engine Steady Rods

I always put a 2X4 under the front, behind the pulley. Maybe not the best, but I do acknowledge the risk of not supporting the front of the engine on a stand. Good reminder though.

Re: Engine Steady Rods

That was an engine I picked up, real cheap, to tear apart and then reassemble, basically to learn on, before I bought my 53' Merc.

Re: Condenser

Since we are talking condensers here, anyone know who the manufacture of this one is. I am not familiar with the markings\symbol on the bottom. I have two of them, serving as back up.

Re: Source for origional 53' Mercury trim clips

The clips are a press fit, in the hole, on the side of the body. Then the trim piece slides over them.MAC's might have them I need to call Monday to get measurements.
