Re: Mixed breed maintanence
Okay, so I took the Galaxie 500 on it's longest shakedown drive yet.
We drove to an auto museum that was approx. 80 miles from home. The engine temperature was steady the whole ride. The 302 got me 17mpg cruising at 3,500rpm / 62mph.
Checked fluids afterwards and everything was right on the money. burned no oil, leaked no fluids at all, and my hose replacements look good.
It was a great confidence building cruise.
Also, the museum had a sweet 1963 Galaxie 500 XL, among many cool rigs.
