1964 1/2 - 1966 / Re: Radiator code
« Last post by Bob Gaines on Today at 02:00:15 PM »
The attached images show the Code, WM0 67 2.
Probably a sill question but I take it that this is a 67 Radiator. For a 66 I assume it should read WM 0 66 2. (Just want to make sure)
Typically a different shape too.

OK...So you latched onto his least significant item in the list.  LOL.  The real reason is to allow very-heavy-gauge wire for the LOOOONG run to the thirsty motor without requiring a $500 Ignition switch.

"so the top could go up without a key if it rained."

Ok... I'll buy that...

Makes sense..... and if the answer is good enough for Midlife.....It's good enough for me!

Here is a link to the correct bracket:

It looks like an original (or a bit later, but like original) tach. I don't believe it's a later reproduction that wires up differently than the original. Of course, the wires on the one you have there are just cut off short. It's a common occurrence even though they are easily unplugged.

Here is an original:

Sorry, that's it. I can add a probable shape from the picture in the 64-65 Chassis Assembly Manual (ref AM005 pg22 & 30), "J", and probable mounting hole from the bolt's size, 3/8 (42772-S8), but that's it. I have not found any other documentation.

Like so many here, having spent my entire life owning and being fully immersed in this, I ....
Well I donít want to give a whining rant as Iím sure everyone feels the same, I have three quick points to offer:

-It is simply incalculable what has been lost, and the present and future damage that has been done to our cars and hobby, both for us and for their future owners;
-despite the contributions (lost) by so many, and many who were either transitory or no longer with us, I would like to recognize a few who had shared their lifeís work (!) of expertise with us: j speegle, Bob, Brant, Pete, Charles, Randy and many more. The problem here is that this knowledge often came incidental to a running thread which gave so much depth and context. Worse- we are all running out of years eventually, but the info is valid forever to our hobby. Itís not like an in depth interview can begin to fill the factual loss. I viewed the lost forum as a peer reviewed technical library and a living component of my car (SFM5S339);
-I would have Ďno problemí continuing the high calibre of technical discussion here on this forum, for many respectful reasons.



Very well stated.

I guess all we can do at this point is look forward and build things back bit by bit.
Thanks Keith. Iíll see what they can do.

Anyone know what 375798 clip looks like?  It is suppose to hold the trans mod line to the block.  From the assembly manual it looks like a J clip but not sure if it is coated or not.  Jim your spreadsheet does not give any info on it, just lists it as clip special.

Here`s a couple of pics of my MAR 66 Metuchen Conv. after I cleaned off the road grime.  It is ORIGINAL and never been touched below the rocker mouldings.
Disregard the incorrect Arvinode exhaust.
