You'll have to improvise--the originals are very difficult to come by (though you may get lucky and find a road draft tube somewhere).

Not aware of any, but I do know the T-98 has provisions to add a PTO. Would be very cool to drive a winch or compressor off it.

A lot of people don't realize that there's a filter in the pump and install something inline--then wonder why the fuel flow didn't improve!

Sucks that it's still leaking. I still have a small drip...

Thanks, Bill. Do you have a picture of the beast? I'm pretty sure the socket in there is not original--nothing of that description attached to the back. I've got a chain-store replacement, would like...

Lighter Circuit

I bought a nice laminated wiring diagram from Classic Car Wiring, but it doesn't include the two circuits I wanted to see most (wipers and lighter). My wiring is a rat's nest; the original lighter is...

Being a dad ain't so bad . . . now you've got someone to build it for--and a potential helper down the road. Heck, my youngest took my 62 to shop class yesterday and swapped out the defroster hoses...

I found a decent fuel gauge for my 62 on eBay. Bought a whole cluster, but the price was reasonable (and I needed more than just the gauge).

It was a great improvement for me, but it depends on the type of driving you plan to do. I'm in an urban/suburban area, so rarely off road and frequently on expressways and freeways. I needed a...

I went from a 3.92 to 3.23 gearing in the Dana 44 installed on my 62. Had to change most everything in there to do it (but it was completely shot anyhow).

After a long drive on the freeway...

I found when I did my rear main a few months back that the threads for these were stripped (but whoever worked on it before apparently didn't care). I drilled and tapped for studs.

I've got the 292 with a 4-speed t-98 behind it. Before I changed the gears in the differential (which were 3.92), I was getting about 12-13 around town. Changed the gearing last week to 3.23, so I...
