Part Number 13415FPB, $46.00 each
This remote battery stud will allow
you to establish a remote battery or ground
connection at almost any location. When adding multiple
accessories and especially any solid-state accessories
it is good idea to ground those accessories direct to
the battery. Because most antique vehicles are more than
forty years old, the accumulation of dirt, oil, grease,
and rust makes it difficult to establish a good ground
thru the body or frame. This Remote Battery Stud is
rated at 200 amps.

Gasoline – Short Term Effects
vehicle owners we experience first-hand the problems
associated with the modern alcohol fuels. Vapor lock,
stalling, poor acceleration, and hard starting (caused
by the fuel evaporating in the fuel line before the
mechanical fuel pump), are all symptoms we are familiar
with. The alcohol is also an aggressive solvent that
will loosen varnish and gum deposits in the gas tank and
fuel system. That will in turn plug fuel filters, and
affect the operation of the idle jet, needle and seat,
and float in the carburetor.
Gasoline – Long Term Effects
vehicles are placed in long-term storage (6 months or
more) the alcohol in the gasoline will draw moisture (up
to a gallon a year) from humidity and temperature
changes, and thru places like the vented fuel cap. In as
little as sixty days the alcohol will begin to separate
from the gasoline and the newly formed mixture of
alcohol and water will settle in the bottom of the fuel
tank where it begins to loosen the rust and corrosion on
the inside of the tank. The mixture will also attack
welded seams and any thin places in the tank (corners)
eventually causing the tank to begin leaking fuel. (The
alcohol can also damage rubber fuel lines.)
If the pickup
tube of your gas tank is in the bottom of the tank as
most antique vehicles are, you will get the alcohol and
water mixture instead of the gasoline when you try and
start your car after it has been in long -term storage.
Testing the gasoline yourself is the only way you will
know for sure, the
alcohol in your gasoline.

In 2004 the zinc additive that has been in motor oil since the 1930's quietly disappeared. (Click here to learn why) Engines built with a flat tappet valve train need the zinc additive to prevent excessive internal engine wear. Now you can add it back. See chart in installation instructions.

Installing a radiator
overflow tank will provide you with two very
important benefits. Most important is the protection
from the loss of engine coolant. The second benefit is
the prevention of outside air being drawn into the
cooling system. When outside air is drawn into the
cooling system as the engine cools… it will create steam
pockets inside of the engine the next time the engine is
warmed up to operating temperature. A steam pocket can
restrict coolant flow
Learn the secrets of how a cooling system works so you can solve your own cooling system problems. Like most anything else, if you know and understand the rules of the game it makes the job much easier. If you own a Flathead Ford this book is a must have.

This is a waterless coolant (no more rust, scale and corrosion in the cooling system) and has a boiling point of 370 degrees and a freeze point of minus 80 degrees with zero pressure in the radiator. That means no more coolant loss from boiling coolant. Evans NPG+ works in all types of cooling systems. It is a lifetime coolant. I have used it in the cars I prepare for the Great Race since 1989. It is expensive but it works! Call 785-632-3450 if you have questions.

We now have available brand new exact reproductions of the original Borg Warner overdrive solenoids. These are available for both 6-volt and 12-volt applications. This is the same solenoid used by all twenty two of the car companies that offered the Borg Warner electric overdrive as an option from 1940 thru 1973. No core is required. These will fit standard Borg Warner overdrive applications… those with a shaft length of one inch measured from the tip of the shaft to the edge of the alignment flange. (lay your ruler on top of the shaft and measure from the ball end to the edge of the casting.) All standard overdrive-solenoids will measure one inch. Station Wagons and convertibles will measure 1.5 inches and a few odd applications will measure 1.25 inches or longer. This solenoid fits the STANDARD one inch applications only. Please check you shaft length before ordering.

Part # 05415KDS-
Now available an exact reproduction of the original Borg Warner overdrive relay. This is an exact reproduction of the overdrive relay used by all eleven of the car companies that offered the Borg Warner electric overdrive as an option from the late 1930 thru the early 1960’s.. Complete wiring instructions included.

We now have available replacement overdrive manual control cable assemblies complete with the correct chrome handle and hardware. These are an exact reproduction of the overdrive cable assemblies used by all eleven of the car companies that offered the Borg-Warner overdrive transmission as an option. Overall length of the cable and housing is seventy-six inches as measured from the shoulder of the threaded fitting to the end of the cable housing. There is an additional four inches of cable that extends past the housing for a total overall length of eighty inches. These are a cut to fit cable with a crimping tool included just like the originals.
Part # 09415ODC-
This seal goes into the overdrive transmission housing where the solenoid mounts to the transmission (and the solenoid shaft passes thru the transmission housing) and connects to the shift pawl. If this oil seal becomes damaged from age or rough removal of the solenoid, transmission oil from the transmission will leak into the overdrive solenoid housing, causing the solenoid to fail. This seal should be checked for damage every time the solenoid is removed for service and replaced if damaged.
Part # 074150S-
This is the proper mineral based gear oil for use in all of the Borg-Warner Overdrive Transmissions built from 1940 on. Do not use “Hypoid” gear oil, any oil with an API rating of GL-2 or higher. Also do not use combination hydraulic/transmission tractor oil or any EP rated oils. Do not use any synthetic gear oils. Use only API rated GL-1 oil. The sulfur and related additives in modern lubricants will destroy the bronze parts inside of the Borg-Warner overdrive. Most all Borg-Warner manual overdrive transmissions require four pints of lubricant.
Part #09415GL - 1
