Now you are talking . If you come for the Saturday Party and want to say hi, you can ask Charlie if the guy (me) that did his silver walls is around?

I remember seeing discussions about fan clutch replacements, but failed to bookmark it.
Whats the consensus for the best replacement?

Peter..I've just replaced the "after-market" fan clutch in the 350LE with an original GM Delco unit but as far as I could tell, there was no physical difference! If you need let me know and i will give you the link to the Delco unit.

Peter,
AC Delco part number 15-4949 GM Original Equipment Engine Cooling Fan Clutch. Price was $109 and purchased through Amazon Prime (there may be cheaper suppliers but as I wasn't sure of the fit, i wanted the ease of return)
In meantime..my next project which we can discuss at Blanco!

Is that a Banks & Maxwell or Franklin propeller??? Or perhaps car on fiber?

I would put a screen on it for jaywalkers..

got the three new gauges installed, Ammeter not wired in yet, but got trans temp and coach batteries volt meter all wired up.

Next week, we have out 13th annual Christmas rally-non Rally at Blanco Statepark, outside of Austin.
This year we will participate in the Blanco Christmas parade, with the 310 being the Grand Marshal and a 17 Caravel covered in pink Flamingo and my Class LondonAire (now all polished up by the new owner ) being the Caboose.
I will try to post lots of pictures.

Looks good Peter!
I did notice that on mine a have an open gauge slot on the top row to the right of where your fuel gauge is... But the mask panel is blacked out. Wondered if it could be used?

I have the same spot and considered using it. There are a couple of problems with that spot.
1. As you said its blackened out and i wouldn't know how to make it clear
2. the metal bracket all the other gauges are attached to, does stop just short of the open slot, so one could not easily attach another gauge without modification
One easy solution would be to drill a 2" hole and slip the additional gauge in that spot from the outside. Not sure if that would be a desired solution.

I have the dash assembly from the 345 sitting on the shelf. When I get home next week I can dig into it to see if that spot could be made useful. Beats having you guys tear up your dashes trying.

Do diesel engine Classics have an extra gauge in that spot? Maybe a boost gauge or something similar?

John, do you want the one I have from the 345? It would just be the bare dash as I will have removed the gauges and other hardware.

The only tricky part would be getting it to you.

I would love to have it, I'll figure something out to get it. We are going to the spring get together in PA in May
