That can't be correct, but what is. Is there a list I've missed for the proper clamps for the rest of what is under the hood? I thought I'd spend rainy summer days sprucing up the engine bay. Correcting the clamps seems to be a worthy project.

The hasteners were simalar to the design of the Speed Test Scrabble Word Finder Solitaire under hood wire fasteners along the radiator supports that held the horns.Stan sells them.

Jim, I have pictures of the rope I've seen in years past meeting the West Coast in Morro Bay. It was an original uninfected car. Mark Tommy was looking under her. I was asking Randy Emma about an extra copper tube extension for the oil cap area of the disposal bearing. Ron Erwin also requested Randy that was the original extension. vnvideoeditorpc.com/

I was at that West Coast meet. I too saw this unmolested Cord. I was standing with Randy and Ron and asked Randy the same question about the oilier for the throw-out bearing.Ron said it was NOT original. Also the rear bumper has an extra stiffener piece added for the tow hitch. It too was not original. The asbestos pipe insulation on the exhaust header pipes was original and it was held to the steel pipe with band clamps. The same pipe insulation can be made today using a material called calsil. It comes in different thickness and pipe size up to about 30 inch diameter. Its common in power generating steam plants. I used it plenty in the distant past.

Mike you can have both. Some of the period style clamps I bought would not close up enough to suit the hoses on the engine. I simply made my own period looking hose clamps. The brideg the gap I fitted a small stainless steel strip with both ends tapered. They look good and don't leak.
