Galaxie info thread - the guide to your Galaxie

Can we sticky a thread like this Deb ?

Everyone can contribute info, pics, PDF's, manuals, video, all the quirks, tricks and secrets we have discovered etc

It is Galaxie specific and will save alot of time for all because we can search within the thread

I can start........ this is 63 and 64's

Yes - the 64 rear bumpers are that expensive

Most of the Power steering control valves do leak

Here is the offset shaft conversion :





Or you can use the stabilizer bar

^ stuff like this, . . . . . .
I see alot of the same questions getting asked, this thread could help us all

Re: Galaxie info thread - the guide to your Galaxie

That would be a good idea I think. I'll stick it and see how it goes. Could work if someone posts a question for something and the answer could be added to this thread and they can be referred here maybe.

Always be yourself, because the people that matter don't mind, and the ones who mind, don't matter.

Re: Galaxie info thread - the guide to your Galaxie

Do you mean post pics ?
If so - Open a photo bucket or image shack account , upload pics from your computer and post the image link in the box where you type and the pics will show up

Re: Galaxie info thread - the guide to your Galaxie

Hello I just bought my first classic car, a 1964 Galaxie 500 4 door and the brake master cylinder has failed. I want to upgrade the brake system but I am unsure what path to take. Any suggestions would be great as I am looking for a great setup to progress my project car.

Thanks

Re: Galaxie info thread - the guide to your Galaxie

You can replace it with a 68 Mustang Master Cylinder - it is a Dual cylinder so you can split the front lines from the rear.

There are many other options if you wanna go to a booster etc, just google that - so much info out there

Re: Galaxie info thread - the guide to your Galaxie

This is coming off the dropbox thread but it fits better here.
I have grabbed all the manuals and diagrams and stuff that I've found around here and put them up on my server at
Galaxie Manuals and Diagrams
I'm in the process of getting more manuals from oldcarmanuals.com. I'll have the rest of those up in the next day or so. If there's anything else you want me to add, pm me.

Car list (subject to change without notice... to the wife):
1965 Galaxie 500 - 390 Cruise-o-matic / 1987 Chevy Silverado - 5.7l / 2014 VW Beetle / 2001 BMW 330Ci / 1992 Lincoln Town Car Executive

I also want to point out that this copy of the manual is missing 2 pages (10-72 & 10-73) in the Fuel System section. I did report this to the "oldmanualsproject" web site. Unfortunately the version that I had back in the '60s is long gone.
