    Original starter wire loom cover has missing section. A place called Restoration Supply Co has them in all sizes. They also have the white braided cover for the choke tube on automatic cars

    Confirmed that this car has the Jetfire specific 10” clutch.

    Good deal Greg! It also appears that you have the three finger style pressure plate. If you have intentions to replace the pressure plate, I recommend that you have the three finger one rebuilt. Current day replacements are the diaphragm style and are not as good! Be sure that all spring locations have springs. (non-Jetfire pressure plates only used 6 springs instead of nine.)

    I just had my clutch and pressure plate rebuilt by Clutch Dynamics in Lansing Michigan. He charged me $172 total with shipping. Mine was the second Jetfire clutch he rebuilt in 6 months. I have not driven it yet but it looks good. If you send it in to rebuilt by someone I would tell them you don’t want it painted. I didn’t think of it and they painted mine blue.

    I just checked it, it has 9 springs. I have a rebuild place here- Southland Clutch-that will be doing it.
    What are we using for throw out bearing, part number, or source?

    I would like to know as well what people are using. My original one is nice as could be and I am seriously thinking about reusing it. Not sure if NOS would be easy to find or not but I suspect that it is the same for many years and applications. I still need to look into it myself.
