Tech Tip- Maintenance chart

Quick Reference Maintenance Chart

As the time has come for most of us to put our T -Birds away for the winter, the following information submitted by fellow club member Craig Beilstein may help to insure that your Bird is ready for Spring. Though the quick reference maintenance chart is for a 1955 Thunderbird, most of the information is correct for 1956 and 1957 Thunderbirds. One exception is that 1957 Thunderbirds require a tire size of 6.70 - 14 inches. The reference chart appears to be from a Conoco Service Station reference manual. The chart indicates the various lubrication points on the car as well as fluid requirements. In addition, the chart provides a recommended frequency of maintenance that most of us probably do not comply with. As such, I have to go now, my car needs to be lubricated. It's been more than a 1000 miles since my last greasing. Thank you Craig for the information.
