A Message from Our President

April has arrived and the showers have begun, but that didn't scare away anyone from our first Dog & Suds gathering and pre-tour to see an amazing car collection. Thanks to one of our new members, Pat was excited to talk to us about his passion for cars! Thanks to everyone who planned this wonderful event. Events like this is what makes our car club fun to participate in.  We even had two new members join us on the tour and what a pleasure it was to have them join. We look forward to having more events like this if we can find volunteers to plan a tour for all of us to tag along and see something they find interesting.  I look forward to seeing everyone enjoy another season of cursing in your awesome ride!


Motor on!

LIHAC President

Tech Tip

 

Spring is coming and that means that you prized old car will be hitting the road soon, before cranking it up and going down the road some items should be checked for your safety and peace of mind.
1. Check the brakes, press hard on the brake pedal, is it firm or does it slowly go down indicating a leak?
Check the inside of the wheels, is there brake fluid present indicating a bad cylinder.
Inspect the brake lines for heavy rust, are the brake hoses in good shape? 
Check fluid levels, if brake fluid has no been changed for several years, it probably contains moisture, brake fluid attracts  moisture and that promotes rust, not good for the brake system.
2. Cooling system, is it full? Look for coolant leaks in the heater hoses and radiator, hoses, are they in good shape and not swelled and soft, a blown hose will leave you setting beside the road.
How long has it been since you have changed the antifreeze?  I add water pump lube and antirust every 2 years to refresh the coolant, but it is getting harder to find.
3. Tires: Check the pressures, tires will always loose a little air and though they look inflated even a slight loss will cause poor handling and tire wear, check the tread, also check for cracks in sidewalls, how old are the tires? Is it time to replace.
4. Check all lights, especially brake lights, make sure the battery is at full charge and generator is doing it's job.
5. lastly, are you due for an oil and filter change? suggestions by Harold Williams
