Today I received in my mail the latest ACD news and the article by Jim O' Brien was well written on some very interesting topics. I knew very well the part about the spring hanger bolts and the wheels cracking.. But had no idea about the correct placement of the steering column to the dash and the front hugs cracking. Its well written articles like this I feel need to be shared as much as possible to keep our cars SAFELY on the roads for everyone's enjoyments. Thanks Jim.

Thanks Gary, I'm trying to write articles that I think Cord owners can use and will keep our cars on the road and derivable. If you or anyone else has any suggestions on articles they would like to see please let me know.

I found the last Newsletter the best in a long time. I was skeptical of going to only 6 a year, but I think it has helped the content greatly.

Jim another item has interested me plenty. Thats how the 10 wires connect in the shifter on the column. I saw a drawing once but seeing an article explaining the hows and whys will help me and plenty of others. Personally I have not decided yet if I want to make this a one piece harness or actually use the large plug that attaches under the drivers foot well in the engine compartment.

Thanks for the great picture. Is this plug functional or does the 10 wire harness just pass thru it? It has been suggested we do NOT use the two piece harness. Doing that increases the chance of electrical shorts. There is 40 opportunities for a bad connection in this plug. But being an owner wanting originality I still have not decided if I will purchase the 10 wire harness as one piece or two pieces.
I noticed you have the Autolite spark plugs. I really like there looks. Over the past several years I have "collected" nearly every Champion H10 plug from Ebay. They include the original two ring beer bottle plugs. Most are used but I have at least one full set of new. Then the 5 ring black body plugs I bet I have 5 sets. Finally the Cad plated body plugs I still have probably 7 full sets. I treat the cad bodies with gun gluing and they come out looking great. Just like the original black body plugs. It takes about 10 bluing's to reach the color I want. Several club members have purchased them from me. One of these members has told me others refer to me as Dr Spark Plug... Kind of funny really.
I also noticed the heads and the head bolts. Are those heads original or the better high capacity heads? Are the head bolts something special? I know original head bolt heads could have no markings of just a "W" on them. Your engine appears to be well finished too. Love the Cadet Grey color too.
