When I needed one for a job we did it was impossible. I didn't think this would last but a week or so. What, nobody dpi.g anything with their cars now? Strange days...

I'd like to see how the connection is made to the clutch control valve to the gas pedal. if there's a picture of a project, a facotry diagram, anything. I have some poor photocopy stuff in an old service letter reprint and can't see a thing. Thanks in advance, and I need the parts or have to make them.

Ok, if y'all know what it is that's great. Still a good trans and OD unit.

The fact is, I still have a pair of lovely Clipper outside rocker moldings. Don't be scared, be creative. Relays, friends, pick up at Hershey. Going without or spending more on repairs isn't an option, or is it?

I think some of the 33s fit, maybe select 31s. The big 18s are a 1 year only, and artillery wheels at that.

This is a lot like the old "Hold the phone closer to the car..." thing. But there's about 3 things to eliminate before you do forensic surgery. How is the condenser? Sparkling new, as in fresh...from Asia? You sense something in the coil (we know our cars like our bodies sometimes) so instinct may be kicking in. We say "vacuum advance" colloquially most times, but the reality is when vac drops (stab of the go pedal) timing retards. This is done by the point plate moving and its entirely possible it tweaks a wire outta contact momentarily. Could lose ground or primary input/output. If it's not getting proper current the coil can heat and so can the condenser. Too hot, either stops working. Rule those out before you dive into fuel. Vapor lock? I have hot summers and blended fuel (Michigan) and I haven't had vapor lock on anything since the mid 90s. There has to be a really screwed up fuel system to cause it. Random thoughts...

Like it says. Got any? Any leads? The sooner the better. In the style shown, car runs 7.50-18 tires. Thanks in advance for your help.

I ended my pursuit of the unicorn Packard tank. But, 61 Olds station wagon is the exact outside dimensions but 3/8" taller. I have to modify the filler neck and I indented the area needed for spare well clearance. Not easy but I now have a new galvanized tank under the car. Pics when it's all done...

This was on a 9 main 356 (or 359). So, junior? My reference materials stop at 47. How can we verify? No matter what, helluva nice trans here...
