    Thank you sir but I look at it more as simple economics - I don't have a lot of money. My Dad always said I had champagne taste and a beer budget!

    Ha - yep I hear you!

    I think he's talking about lubing the actual speedometer head, the gears in it that clock the miles driven - not the speedometer cable itself.

    Wow - it's interesting how all of these cars seem to rust about the same. I feel like I'm looking at pictures of mine a few weeks back.

    It would be a lot easier than trying to do in the car. You have that tiny freeze plug and felt to remove to get lube into it - getting the plug out isn't bad but it doesn't just pop out for you.

    Just Another Update

    Worked on '55 a bit more today but it's hot and humid around here again which takes a lot out of me. I should have mowed the back grass but just didn't feel like walking around in that sun.
