MEMBERS Project Cars in Progress / Update on my '59 Toga
« on: February 16, 2010, 07:36:55 AM »
Well, it's been a while since I've been on here. My friend and I tore into my 59 Saratoga the past couple of weeks, and I wanted to post some pictures along the way, maybe get some input from people who have done a lot more work on these cars than I have! LOL!
Couple of weekends ago, prepping. Draining, taking off what I could.

Yesterday, ready to come out...or so we thought. There was still one transmission bold that was hiding from us, we got it though.

IT"S OUT!!!! Freakin beast!

As it sits now. I'm going to be taking apart little by little, hopefully have the block, valves, and crank into a shop for machining next month :D

Any tips, suggestions, or heads up on things to expect would be great!
Also, got these to go on when I'm putting everything back together:


Tech- - Engine / Engine rebuild tips
« on: July 26, 2009, 02:24:27 PM »
Hello. As most of you know, I have a 59 Saratoga with the 383 V8. This winter I'm planning on tearing down the engine and rebuilding it. I'm thinking about upping the compression a little bit with new pistons, but I'm not too sure. Does anybody have any tips on what will need replacing? Here is my plan(ish)-
New gaskets, rings, seals, all that jazz
Potentially higher compression pistons, definitely new pistons at least
Port and polish
machined block
new carb and intake manifold
New exhaust (if anybody can give tips on different exhaust manifolds that would help to.

Thanks for helping someone who is half the age of their car! :D

General Tech- - BRAKES / Wheel Cylinders

As I am researching parts for my 59 Saratoga until it gets here, I do know that it needs a new rear wheel cylinder. I'm planning on just replacing both rears at the same time. I want to make sure it's the right part though. Is this the one I'm looking for guys?

Good evening. I stumbled across this forum through, and figured that since I'll be picking up a '59 Saratoga next weekend, I should sign up so that I can ask questions from people who know WAY more about working on these cars than I do :)

Little about myself, I live in Washington state, am married (to a very patient, very giving woman, come on, she's letting me go to SO-Cal to get a project car) and have the most awesome 3 year old. Been in the Military for 8 years now, and can't wait to start showing something a little more respectable than a riced out 04 Cavalier that I used to have. You'll probably be seeing a little more of me when I get the car up here and can't figure something out. Thanks!!!!
