If I attach it to the strap Bolt I'm not sure I can access the sending unit for the other end of The Wire is any place on the frame okay?

The gage doesn't work. The previous owner had the tank flushed and coated and the unit fixed but it still didn't work and he thinks it should be grounded to the frame. I would appreciate your thoughts.

I have a 53 clipper that was locked in park after sitting for seven and a half years. The tow truck driver reach down and took the cotter pin out of the linkage and pushed it back two notches to neutral. Put it on the tow truck and when he dropped it off it went easily in every gear. It would sure be nice if it were this simple for you.

Re: I removed more coolant than will fit back in, why?

I did as Ernie suggested, the water never went down so I can add more. I drove it 15-20 minutes and parked it. As Fishn Jim said I'm afraid the engine will get hot if I drive it more. I haven't taken the thermostat off the head and placed it inside the housing yet so I will empty more coolant out when I do that. Perhaps when the thermostat is where it belongs it'll use the right amount of coolant. I have a gallon left that won't go back in. The temperature gauge on my dashboard reads cool.

When I removed the coolant I saved it to pour back in after changing the thermostat. I still have three quarts left that won't go back into the radiator. Do you guys know why this is?

I just ordered the thermostat snap ring so it will be installed correctly. some of you say 160 degree and some say 180 degree thermostat. The owners manual lists both. ????????

when I took out the coolant to change the thermostat I saved it to pour back in. When I poured it back in I had about 3-4 qts more in the container even after driving the car. Why can this be??
