Concours Talk / Re: Rear leaf springs

I think Bob is referring to the bottom leaf with the engineering data and date codes.
I must have missed the part where they checked oil and coolant levels and condition.
The last time I used a grid growler was in tech school early 80s. We had a local specialty shop that used it daily. You would be surprised how many old pickups out there with Bendix rears. Vernier caliper is a tool that can be used most anywhere, very handy with scale modeling.

Maybe the management thinks its better not to cancel out a member than let the disgruntled stairstep to the next person on their hit list.
Very interesting. So would a dating check list include an anatomical/weight estimation dependent on hood correction?
I agree, off shore pos parts causing stupid comebacks constantly. Turning 8o+ flat rate hours/wk in the 80s-90s was typical. Whole different ballgame these days.

Looks like a center cap that would fit SS Cragars.

If you have the heads re worked to R model specs then even the 715 works as it should.

Didnt Stirling Moss call him a Bloody Wanker for a prank photo set up.
Were the aux pushrod guides used in addition to the factory narrowed apertures on the Valley hipo heads?

Somehow I dont think that 18 mil property assessment is gonna fly.
Yes, the third wire should be attached to the base of the socket. Are those assembly housings aftermarket?

When you checked the grounding points did you physically disassemble & clean them? Just a visual inspection can be misleading. Also wiggle the wiring to see if the strands are weak or broken beneath the insulation. 50+ year old wiring can get brittle. If that pans out then check the connections at the T/S switch and H/L switches and connections between those and the T/S lamps. Still sounds like a bad connection or ground to me, possible corrosion issue.
And for endurance racing GM has an optional extra long extension cord. This Corvette is Biden approved.
