Re: Anyone have any experience with Speedometers?

I'm a repeat customer with Papanick. I couldn't be more satisfied. Jr. does it right! I'm sure others would also, but my experience has been with him. Ed in Mississippi

Re: OT, window stickers

An RV sate sticker map might fit the window. Search eBay for "RV state sticker map" and see if you can find a size that will work.

Re: What's the trick for installing lower spring on motor mount

With the engine out I used a 6" C clamp to compress the springs enough to get the nut started. Doesn't take much pressure & I used a rag to keep from scratching the paint on the motor mount and...

Re: 7 degrees - one minor complaint

I keep a small battery powered fan (from Dollar Tree that I glued a magnet to) and use it as a defroster when it is raining. Not sure about it working in sub-freezing temps, but for a dollar it might...

Re: moving radiator to remove water pump

I also do it Tom's way. Suggest putting old blankets (or mover's blankets from Harbor Freight) over spares, tank/cowl, headlights and radiator shell for insurance against scratching. I made a prop to...

Re: Rear end noise solved!

I agree with Tom. Your U joint may be dry also. If you are not going to pull the rear end, you might at least want to remove the speedometer gear housing (again) and pump some good grease...

Re: removing steering wheel

Unbolt from frame and gas tank. Remove rear window (or roll down if you have a roll down rear window) Horn rod can then be removed. But, not too much more to remove the whole thing from the car.

Re: MAC's bought out

I crossed them off of my "PLACES TO ORDER FROM" list several years ago. Seems changing hands hasn't improved their operation.

A steering wheel can be off enough to block line-of-sight to the speedometer. Quite annoying!
