Re: Period-Correct Auto Battery

I'm not sure that a specific Odyssey battery model is inside the Antique Auto Battery case. At least I don't know. Perhaps Odyssey or Antique Battery know. What I do know is that uses Odyssey's proprietary technology. Generically, it's an Odyssey battery with a different case.

Period-Correct Auto Battery

I know Tom is aware of what I am about to discuss; but, I am unsure if it has been presented on his forum. If the following is redundant, I apologize. I have been frustrated with tar top lead acid batteries, with poor service and potential for acid corrosion. For the last several years, I have equip...

Re: Turn-signal stalk remanufacturing

ODD Parts rebuilt my 3 stalk setup for my 330GTS. He uses new, more durable plastics, and the stalks are stainless steel. Works well so far (about 3 yrs old).

Re: 330 GTC emergency hood release cable

Behind glovebox and towards center consul. It doesn't have the hinged handle of the main hood release, but rather, a ring on the end of the cable (as I remember).

Re: Quail Lodge closing

The info I received from the Quail stated they had been losing money for yrs (read: before this recession), that they were closing the hotel operation for good in November, but, would continue special events, including the Quail auto event each August.

Re: The Quail

Yes, two tickets, for a price. Next, find a place to stay. My car will be there also, provided current work is finished in time (rebuilding steering box).

Re: Battery

Last year I was watching "How its made" on the science channel, and the topic was lead acid batteries. They were filming the manufacture of very interesting batteries at the Odyssey Battery plant. I then Googled Odyssey, and discovered something new in car batteries. They use pure lead (read: more e...

Re: Keys CEAM/TORINO. My perspective.

I purchased key blanks some yrs ago for my 330GTS from keys4classics.com (in Australia). I remember them being responsive, and they work off emailed close-up photos of your original keys, plus any code #'s on the keys. I also remember it being relative inexpensive. They might not have the molded pla...

Re: "New Post" Icon

Well, Rebooting seemed to help a little-a few of the icons would go black after I opened and closed the string, but many wouldn't budge. Perplexing at first. Then..........Aha!: If a string has more than one page, the last page has to be opened before the icon will go black. Tada! Ps. I like Mozilla...

"New Post" Icon

Ever since the recent software upgrade for this website went into effect, a trouble has persisted: The circular icon at the beginning of each string, red when a new post exists, and black when no new post exists, seems not to work. To wit, the icon remains red even after I have entered the string. T...

It is my recollection that there is a emerg release cable under/behind the instrument panel, accessed from beneath, as my release failed to work in about 2002 at a car show, and a fellow exhibitor was able to open the hood. I'm less certain if he went in the driver's footwell, or the other side. Goo...

Air cleaner and shifter suggest American V8 under the bonnet.
