A Message from Our President

 

As our summer begins to wind down, we all look forward to the great fall outings and tours that this season will bring for us and our cars. Everyone has been enjoying our outings and I want to thank each one of you that have planned a gathering for us in the last year. Don’t forget that we are always looking for people that have never planned a gathering to participate and do their part in the club so that we can continue to have new places to go and so that our members that have planned so many other trips don’t get burned out doing this over and over for us. We love seeing all these hidden places that many of us have never experienced! We look forward to your help in planning some of our future outings.

 

Our annual auction is right around the corner, so start gathering up your items to sell and raise money for the club. We always have a lot of fun and a lot of great items donated each year for this event. Don’t forget that we also need everyone to buy at least one item or make a donation to the club to help support our efforts for all the future events. 

 

Election of officers is right around the corner and if you have a desire to be a club officer or even to serve on a committee, let it be known so that we can keep you in our sights for getting you involved. 

 

Please keep in your thoughts and prayers our members that have health concerns. We miss each one of your and we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers and hope that each one of you are able to improve so that you can join us for our future gatherings.

 

LIHAC President

Tech Tip

 

 

An easy way to check the oil level in a manual transmission/differential is to use an allen key, use the short end of course, insert it down into the filll opening, if there is oil on it when you withdraw it, your oil level is fine.
 To add oil, I use a pump oilier to add oil as it is hard to pour oil into these openings.
# 90 gear lube is fine for differentials, but it is no advised by most shop manuals for Transmissions. 
Yours may vary but I use 50wt. oil in my Studebaker transmissions/overdrives, it works just fine. Do not overfill!!  Submitted by Harold Williams
