    I have my 1960 on a rotisserie, but I did not find a reason to remove the dash, except to be able to say, I performed a total restoration!

    Re: Removing Fuel Gauge - Advice please

    First of all, check the unit on top of the tank. Usually the coiled resistance is not perfectly round and the needle stops to touch the coil, that is why the reading does not go more than a quarter.

    Re: Clock

    I went to search to find a guy having dismantled a mechanical clock, to give us some hints how to do it. The only information I got is to send it to a speciality shop. I removed a lot of chrome ring...

    Re: Rear axles are out...

    No, because I did not remove the left one.
    I will remove the right one again to see where is the obstruction.

    After removal, I found that the bearing thickness was 23 mm instead of 18 mm....

    Re: Rear axles are out...

    Not at the end of the job!
    The bearing stopped to travel at 3/16” off the back plate. I think the bearing is too wide. Is somebody knows or can find the thickness for this barrel roller bearing?...

    Re: Rear axles are out...

    Thanks, I will try that!

    With part 53 at the bottom, the axle slides easily. The most difficult task is to lodge the bearing inside the housing. It must be parallel all the time, not yet capable....

    Re: Motor mounts for mismatched engine

    Thanks Mark, but my question is why my original front motor mounts are near half an inch shorter than the one available on the market. Owning an early 1956, the rear support is under the transmission.

    Re: Rear axles are out...

    I had no choice to remove the right axle, the roller bearing did not do the job, a spherical roller bearing is needed. This is what I installed, but reinstalling the axle seems a hard task. Where I...

    Sorry for you. You have to get it repaired or buy a new unit. There are at least five for sale on EBay USA.
