Have here a Twin UltraMatic to install in my '56 400. Transmission was shipped here dry (i.e., completely drained of all fluid) Q - Is it safe to install and then fill or should fill the torque convertor and sump before running the engine?

Spoke with Dave Schumacher earlier today - he has no stock.
A custom one-off set would cost nearly $300.

Apparently these are no longer in production and there's no old stock available. If anyone can help please let me know.
Thanks

1956 Senior front fenders
#8
Just popping in

Really hoping someone can help me out here. My '56 400 was a victim of a hit and run collision while parked - Major damage to the bumper, grille and RF fender. Recently contacted a chap in Winnipeg Canada who had a pair of NOS senior fenders, but lost his contact info when my email client imploded. Needless to say I've moved on to a more robust email solution.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Telephone 403.284.1235 and ask for Paul.

If the engine hasn't run for a while I'd suggest that you remove the spark plugs and liberally lubricate all the upper cylinder areas with a light aerosol oil using a flexible nozzle extension. Then crank the engine a bit to lubricate the bearings before replacing the plugs. The 4GC carb will probably need rebuilding - the accelerator pump plunger has likely deteriorated by now. Pouring raw gasoline into the carb will get the engine started but isn't a great idea.

Gasoline ain't what it used be - It's no longer distilled from light sweet crude, but cracked from heavy crude. If the gasoline in your fuel tank is several months old it has already begun to revert to form - i.e., the lighter portions are long gone. Trying to get any engine to run right with old fuel is a frustrating exercise. Adding a stabilizer helps, but isn't a cure-all.
