Dear all, this conversation is a bit older, but please allow me a question. How do I get the speedometer removed? To the back of the dash? Or to the front towards the steering wheel? Is it just the 3 screws I can see from the back but almost can't reach that hold the speedometer in place? Thanks in advance for your answer. Or is there a manual specifically on this subject? I have not found anything here yet.

best regards Josef

did you change the valve springs too? Or only the lifers? I have used new today made valve srings. Some of them failed. ( broke in half) after a few miles. sounds similiar to ticking lifters.

Re: Rust in gas tank

on my clipper i have got the same problem. i removed the tank and filled it with 50 very sharp edged and pointed wood screws, then shook the tank extensively. removed all 50 screws. rinsed with water, then put rust converter in the tank. then rinsed again extensively with water. after drying, reinstalled and put back into use with a large petrol filter.i did not use any seal or paint. because i have no confidence that it will distribute evenly in the tank. i change the filter once a month. this has been working for 2 years now. the filters are very inexpensive and can be hidden well. everything looks original.

Clipper 47. Leaf spring bushing replacement - is this a drive way job?

i am going to replace my brittle old leaf spring and shakle bushings. As i have no car lift, only jack and jack stands i wonder if this is a job that can be done this way. Or if there are usually always serious complications that actually require working powerfully upright under the car? So what do you think, should i not even start this without a lift?

I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this matter. BR Josef

My car has got no spare wheel. Just for emergency use i look for a easy to find rim.
Because i don't live in the US it's not easy to find original replacements, so i'm looking for something that kind of fits. Something from a widely used brand. Chevy, Ford, Plymouth etc. is there anything ? Look forward to any adwise. best regards Josef
