    Default 1961 Basic questions

    My favorite girl is a 1961, driver with a 350 engine, with aftermarket rims and BFG tires that really make it fund to drive.
    But working and Mexico and only getting home a couple times of the year there are some things that need to be done.
    Thank goodness my son drives her enough as not to have issues.

    Not to beat this issue to death, but my gaskets around my windshield needs replacing. Having followed the other threads, most helpful by the way, its too much for me to tackle on my own.
    I went to Burkes in Maitland, Fl and he is very busy, and could not give me a ball park price, or even a schedule on this repair.
    Is there anyone else in Florida that you members would recommend?

    Also I noticed a drip at the rear end of the car, I snugged it up but its still weeping.
    Is there a copper washer that I should add or a gasket washer, and what type of fluid should I use in the replacement of this fluid?

    thanks for any help.

    Where is the drip? What's leaking? Brake fluid, gasoline, diff lube?

    John the leak is at the differential bottom plug/bolt.
    thanks.

    If your diff has a drain plug on the bottom, the axle housing has been replaced; only pre-'59 axles had the bottom drain plug. That bottom drain plug uses a copper sealing washer - Corvette Central has them.
