Yep, can be.
Zero offset on what size wheels Joe?
Does zero offset mean a 3” backspace on a 6” wheel?
Im using 15×6 with 3.5/8” backspace and a little bigger tire at 205 65 15.
Spindle is not changed. The hub fits with same mounting flange location as original 4 lug hub. My understanding from talking with BCPP is that it is located the same as the original hub. There are also a user or two of his 5 lug conversion the the 6163skylark site. Everyone seems very satisfied. Ben is also available to talk with and is happy to…[Read more]
BCCP doesn’t. He uses a different hub.
I dont know this for sure but i believe i remember the Tempest hub in front is a five lug? There is another one or two as well I believe. Couldn’t confirm which ones. Then you go for new axles in the rear I believe. BCCP can supply or Moser will make them. Not cheap.
Also, there are two hub styles, one tha…[Read more]
Hello everyone. Still looking for the GLUE-in Windshield Inside Surround Molding for a 62 Jetfire.
I have the mirror center chrome but none of the bottom, side, or top molding.
If you don’t have it all I am interested in what you do have. Mine is all rotten.
Color doesn’t matter.
Thank you Eric for coming up with the rear window interior…[Read more]
What master cylinder did it come with?
I did the 4 lug conversion and am running 15x 6 with a 35/8” backspace. 205 65 15H tire. Wheel Vintique Smoothies. Steel. Lots of alloy wheels available in 5 lug.
Car is dropped with 1” lower springs
Here’s a good alternative for pulling the pan without a lot of work.
The device you see in place above the eng supports the eng with the rod you see headed down out of sight.
Drag link dropped.
The Suspension side mounts were loosened a little, front mount in place, steering was disconnected at the box, the suspension was dropped very little and…[Read more]
I’ll PM you his contact info and you guys can talk direct.
This is what he said he needs: 1962 Jetfire
The molding surrounding the inside of the back window
The molding surrounding the inside of the front window (which I think is only top and bottom but I’m not sure.)
Jetfire emblem for the trunk
Thanks very much
Have a friend with 62 Jetfire in need of an interior trim piece or two.
Don’t know if it is the same as a cutlass coupe but possibly?
If someone out there has some interior trim available i will find out exactly what piece(s).
Received my new Viton diaphragm valve and have installed. Hope this is the last one!
The also pulled off the end of the valve tube and replaced the stem seal in there. I don’t believe Old Air went that far.
Terrance at Fusick as very helpful.
Thanks for all the comments.
The problem is not rebuilding the valve or getting the diaphragm, please read up to the earlier posts for the issue.
Also, I understand there is a stem seal that should be replaced behind the diaphragm. Were you able to get that?
Fusick has now had produced and tested a Viton diaphragm that is resistant to the Evans and other antifreeze like Dexcool with additives corrosive to the commonly used rubber diaphragms.
Doing one for me now. Be glad to have a heater back.

Thanks Joe. The machine shop thinks that’s the way to go too. Think I’ll go that way as well.
My rocker assembly is up to get a new shaft and rocker and checked out.
The rebuilder up in Northern Calif, I’ve heard he’s the guy everyone goes to including D&D, is going to come out with a stronger shaft option. Not available yet but will be after…[Read more]
