  1. Well I can't get the photos to open. I used IMGUR to post them. What do I need to do to fix the photos? Thanks John
  2. I recently acquired this heater control valve.( First photo ) I thought I would be receiving a valve for a '63 Avanti, but as you can see in the photos it is not the same valve. I've included a photo of a '63 Avanti heater control valve for comparison( Last photo ). The mounting holes are the same size on both valves and the same distance center to center. But I do not know what is the correct application. It appears to be NOS. Any help identifying it would be appreciated. Thanks John
  3. Lew, does this edition also have an article on the Mercedes SLC that was mentioned in the original post?
  4. I'd be interested in reading the articles..............I own a '63 Avanti and years ago owned a SLC. My brother can translate the articles for me, so I hope you can attach the articles here on the Forum...........Including the SLC article. John Brissette
  5. I sent the E-mail again. I looked at all 4 before sending, and all 4 opened. John
  6. Can you post them here on the Forum? Obviously, I don't know how to do it.
  7. I sent the photos to your E-mail address
  8. Well, I just checked to see if the photos posted ok............and they Did Not. Always worked in the past. I'll have to think about this. John
  9. Here are the photos of the Halibrand wheels on my '63, with the screw on TriBar. Hope this helps you get to a solution.

  10. Yes, the TriBar on my Halibrand wheels is threaded and screws on and has an "O" ring as well. I was not aware that the Real Rodder Wheels "Spinners" just push on and use an "O" ring to retain the Spinner. No wonder they come off. Knowing what I know now, I'd say "Set Screw" as well. IF you would like a photos of my Halibrand Wheel and Screw on Tribar, just let me know. John
  11. I have original Halibrand 5 Spoke wheels ( Not the OEM Option Wheel, and not the reproduction wheel ) , with screw on TriBars, on my car for approx 20 years, and never have had a problem with the TriBar becoming loose, much less , falling off. My experience has been that they are on very tight, and require a lot of effort to remove. I usually replace the "O" ring, if I remove the wheel. I'd suggest that you experiment with different thickness "O" rings. John
  12. Take a close look at the switch in the E-Bay Listing . The shaft is a "D" shaft and the original switch, and the knob that operates the switch, is a "Split Shaft", like some radio knobs. Not saying you can't use it, but if you are wanting to use the original knob, it will require some modification to the knob and / or the switch. John
  13. Does anyone on the Forum know the diameter of the smaller pulley that is referenced in the Service Letter R-1964-4? I looked up the Service Letter and the part number for the pulley is 1563110 Thanks John
  14. Gary, do you have the Service Letter you referred to? Could you post it here? Thanks John
