If purchasing, my PayPal is mjlaperch@gmail.com. Please send as "Goods/Services" so I can print the label directly from PayPal. I typically ship USPS Priority Mail and include that in the fee. If the item is bigger it ships USPS Retail Ground.

But, but... why would you? I think the LH handbrake is one of the best things about a 140. So easy to reach in and pull it as the car is rolling away...

You may have to true-up the fuel bowl covers to stop leaks on your HIFs.
They sometimes get warped and won't seal properly even with new o-rings.
It's easy enough to do with a file or some emory cloth on a flat surface.

After sealing the cooling system, my brother pointed out that we had a sizeable coolant leak. There are a dozen holes in the radiator that came with the car. After some research, I discovered that these crossflow style rad's are hard to come across.

I scored a good used crossflow radiator on eBay this morning for $106 shipped with a 101 day warranty!

You can use a 240 radiator, btw. Requires notching the frame rails so the end tanks slide into place.

Three things arrived in the mail yesterday!

Registration from Eric in Maine- Now I can title the car
Radiator from eBay- included plastic fan shroud (that I didn't have already)
Steering lock and key from Jason (jfry)- All I need now is a set of door/tailgate locks

Unfortunately, I type this email in the Morgantown Comfort Inn as tomorrow morning at 8:00, I move into my dorm. I won't be home until Thanksgiving and won't have any time until winter break to work on the car.

I have a bunch of cylinders and keys. I'll see if I have a matched set tomorrow. Looking for anything else while I'm at it?

Unfortunately all my full sets are for a 142 or 144. I can put together a set for the doors that has one key and a cylinder for the tailgate with another key if your interested. PM me to let me know.

Marc,
I would definitely be interested in a two-keyed set (one for doors, one for tailgate).
Send me a PM.

The sedan and wagon trunk/tailgate lock tumbler is the same. Get a full set for a sedan and swap the tumbler for the trunk lock over to the wagon lock assembly. This assumes the locks haven't been updated to the newer style key.
