Re: VC Parts diagram/ info needed.


The “continental” spare on my custom convertible uses a turned down 6” brake drum for the spare mount.  No one sees if they don’t look.  Only Paul Gorrell has noticed it.

Yes as best I can tell. Not a lot of extra FOR mounts laying outs around either. Since it is all hidden when the wheel/tire is mounted it isn’t that hard to make one that will work. I made the one for the Super Sports I redid in the 70s.

Isn't the VC spare tire mount the same as on the Farm-O-Road?

The VC wiring diagram is the same as the CD. It's in the Service Manual, listed as "with directional signals". I can't recall, and significant differences, if there are any.

Suppliers have the spacer.  Spare tire mount will be tough to find a diagram on.  You may have to find someone who has one and borrow it to copy.
