Great Suggestion. I live for PB Blaster. It works great on my 70 year old radiators!

Any issue with replacing the rubber lens gaskets with cork?

Thanks.
With a little hot air and (over night) silicone spray, was able to soften up the sticky rubber to the rear lens. I used a large paper clip , bent the end of it to a 90 degree angle and was able to get behind part of the lens and pull it out.

Thanks. I tested this process on one of my lights and it worked perfectly. The other light appears to have had the rubber gasket fuse to both the housing and the glass lens.

I am debating if I should apply a flame to the glass to soften the gasket...

What is the correct procedure to accessing and changing the rear stop/turn signal light bulb in my formal sedan (1807)?

I have removed the regular slotted screw on the top of the unit but nothing happens nor does anything move easier. I looked in the trunk and see no access. If I remove the rear wheel and stick my head in the wheel well, I see there are two nuts (besides me) in proximity to the stop/turn indicator... Is this the access to that light socket and bulb?

Thanks

How hard is it to rebuild a 1940 Super 8 carb? (assuming a fair mechanical ability)

Thanks

1940 heater hose "y" connector

I am trying to determine the correct size of the Super 8 Formal Sedans heater hose "y" connector. It looks like 5/8"x5/8"x3/4" but I connect tell for sure.

The 5/8" side feeds one of the back seat heater core in the rear of the car, the 3/4" feeds the dash core and the other 5/8" goes to the radiator.

Currently these "y"s are plastic so I am looking for a more period correct connector. Maybe brass?

Thanks.

Max has some but they are just short of an arm. (An arm is $500 each)

It looks like I need to tear into this a bit more as I don't see an easy way to pull the thermostat.

I will also need to see if I can find someone to rebuild what I have.

To answer my PMs... The shutters I am talking about are on the front of the car grill, in front of the radiator.
