Re: Hello from Germany!

What happened, Jelonek? Why are you doing this work? Did you blow a head gasket?

Re: 66 Floormat

I posted that before I saw the picture. I thought you wanted the permanent rubber mat on the driver's side.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure no one is making those. Are you sure that's even a Toro mat? The only ones I've seen are one piece rubber that cover the entire front floor.

Re: 66 Floormat

You're going to have to make your own.

McMaster-Carr has a reasonable approximation of grooved rubber sheet. I've posted the link somewhere on here before. It's not exact but unless you're parked next to an original car, no one will know the difference.

Re: 1992 Toro - E and C bus question

I don't know what the problem is but because everything works at the rebuild factory, I suspect something is wrong with the wiring in your car. I would test the ground on all related parts. You may be able to just install a new ground wire that encompasses all the components. I had a similar issue w...

I guess he decided to put all his effort into the '67 Impala.

Re: 66Toro Name That Part.

Tropic Turquoise and Dubonet. Back when cars actually came in colors other than black, white and some crappy shade of grey or silver.

Re: 66Toro Name That Part.

Re: What is the ORIGINAL Tire Size of 69 and 70 Toronado?

Yes. And there are no substitutes for the Toronado wheels. Don't just bolt something on just because it fits. The Toro wheels have very deep offsets and backspacing. Using other rims puts force in the wrong location and will break spindles and ruin wheel bearings. Here are the specifications for Tor...
