Re: Drive belt wobble

I think Rickey is right a 3/8" wide belt should do it... Tighten so there is 3/8 to 1/2 " movement on belt between waterpump pully and alternator pully.

Re: Instrument Lights

Knowing working under the dash is only a job for a contortionist l figured having to remove the steering column jacket and steering shaft would be as difficult when l replaced the power steering box so since the front seat is only held in with four nuts l elicited the help of my son and removed the ...

Re: Instrument Lights

Art - l changed all my dash bulbs from #57 to LED's including the three you are talking about with no trouble at all. I suggest a small blade of some kind to pry the socket out of the hole. Just let me say do not wait until you are 86 to change your power steering box. Been fighting it for 3 days wi...

Re: Drive belt wobble

Single groove pully on crankshaft. I guess no power steering. The belt is tightened correctly when you push down in the middle of a span and it moves approx. 1/2". Dan can you post the video of my engine running while driving the alternator, AC compressor and water pump.
Thanks,
Dick.

Re: Ride height

Schlaag, Regarding your original shocks w/o helper springs, you can buy a helper spring kit from NAPA or any parts house and install them on your shocks. I did that on my 60 Desotos original shocks and it made a huge difference. It would bottom out with two passengers in the rear but not anymore.

Bill - l have all my chrome plating done at spacecoast plating in Melbourne, Fl.
Prices are fair, work is excellent, they have done 3 cars for me. Delivery takes a while because they enjoy a good reputation.

Re: Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach 2018

We are trying, we both had a bout with Bronchitis for a week an a half. I had to stay home from work. I'm back now. This is the first time in over a year l have received an email from the forum, in fact any emails at all from the site. What's up with that. You and Martha be careful too.
