Hank has the answer.See if any other gauges seem to be off also.You can usually tell because of an incorrect temp. reading. Good luck!

Re: '59 Ranch Wagon Air ride???

Sounds like you need springs.My first new car was a 1959 Ranchwagon twodoor, sky blue, six cylinder.I could haul four adults with a couple of kiddies in the rear space with no problem.

Re: Talk to me about wheels......

I just installed cast iron drums and '35 16inch wheels with 205 radial General blackwalls and am very happy with the results.I kept the 19inchers for some reason as I'm not easily embarrassed.
