Re: 1958 Edsel Corsair 2 door Hardtop

Thanks guys, I know it's been a long time since I posted, still got the car, I've been delayed slightly buy my purchase of a "new" house which was built in '36 that's been occupying my time, however I've got some updates to share with all of you.

Re: couple questions about water diverters

that's what I figured once I pulled the cylinder heads off and saw the openings. I was guessing the diverters should be angled towards the heads so the water flow is directly aimed at the cylinder head openings. that sound about right? 8-)

Re: Deck Height

Not to hijack the thread but I'm in the early stages of my engine rebuild and I was wondering if later on, probably mid spring, if my block needs boring, would I be able to join your loan-a-torqueplate program? :D

Re: couple questions about water diverters

I was talking about the diverters themselves. mine did come with the same cooling setup as your 430. the thermostats had already been removed sometime before so I'm just going to leave those out but my diverters are toast, all crumbly and falling apart.

Falling trunklid problem

My trunklid won't "pop" up like it's supposed to and it barely stays up when put all the way up. a tap is all it takes for it to come slamming down. I adjusted the torsion bolts all the way and it's no better. is there a fix for this?
