Re: thermostat for '47 356

Thanks, Dave. I will let you know if I need it. As I said, I see it in the housing. However, I put the housing back on without a thermostat temporarily as I really think the block needs to be flushed. Probably why I had to replace 2 freeze plugs last year. Hopefully the retaining ring will come out ...

Re: thermostat for '47 356

Thanks Howard. I am sure it was the wrong one to start with. I see the retainer ring in the housing. I presume the thermostat goes in and then the ring goes between it and the block.

thermostat for '47 356

Anyone have a good number for a thermostat for a 2106? Mine has failed and I cannot read the number to see if it is available locally. These are very slim due to the depth of the water jacket and it needs to be 160 degrees. Would love to have a "stant' number as most are available at O'Reilly or can...

Re: power steering fluid

That is exactly the problem I am having. I guess I won't worry so much.

Re: power steering fluid

Since there is no dip stick in the cap of the Monroe Power steering unit on the 55/56 models, what is the proper fluid level? I just barely cover the filter but still it seems like a little fluid comes out the top when driving? I think through the breather hole in the cap but not sure.

brake lights '40 160

I guess this could go in either wiring or brakes? My tail lights work well and are nice and bright. However, when the brakes are applied they dim or flicker. I think this happend when I first got the car and it turned out to be a wire on the headlight switch. I can't find anything wrong now. Don't k...

Re: p/s pump

Thanks Dave, I will try those numbers locally and call the dealers if I am not successful. I think this may solve my problem. Tommy

Re: p/s pump

ok, got the top off, the gasket looks good but it does not have a filter! I am guessing when the pump was rebuilt they did not put a filter in it and just returned it and it was installed as is -so I have been running it without a filter since 1993 when I acquired it. I noticed the fluid level was j...

Re: p/s pump

Thanks, it is a Monroe pump and I presume there is a filter but have not found a diagram on the internet. I do have a spare I picked up from a club member so I will take it apart first to see if there is a filter. I would guess you are right. Tommy
