Serious question, or testing people lol
Just testing people LOL
We use to use these when we got a nice set of wheels to fit most cars , it was cheaper that way , no one could afford new LOL
Turbo-Hydramatic or Turbo Hydra-Matic is the registered tradename for a family of automatic transmissions developed and produced by General Motors. These transmissions mate a three-element turbine torque converter to a Simpson planetary geartrain, providing three forward speeds plus reverse.
The Turbo-Hydramatic or Turbo Hydra-Matic (THM) series was developed to replace both the original Hydra-Matic models and the Buick Dynaflow. In its original incarnation as the Turbo-Hydramatic 400, it was first used in the 1964 model year in Cadillacs. The Buick version, which followed shortly thereafter, was known as the Super-Turbine 400. By 1973, THM units had replaced all of GM’s other automatic transmissions including Chevrolet’s Powerglide, Buick’s Super Turbine 300, and Oldsmobile’s Jetaway. Starting in the early 1980s, the Turbo-Hydramatic was gradually supplanted by four-speed automatics, some of which continue to use the “Hydramatic” trade name.
Although the Turbo Hydra-Matic name alludes to the original Hydra-Matic developed by General Motors’ Cadillac division in the late 1930s, the two transmissions were not mechanically related.
One of the best made
Then I won’t be a smart ass and answer lol
No please do, this thread is also fro entertainment purposes
The center hole is way too small
Like throwing a chainsaw at a tree
Yup. If that first step doesn’t get it started then a stern shouting at it telling it about how if it doesn’t work it’s going in the bin followed up by more threats of what you’re going to do to it if it doesn’t work. Then that is when you try start it
After cutting 3 cords of wood I was wandering what that noise was.
Sometimes , late at night I once again find myself pondering why is a cord of wood called a cord of wood?
Wheel spacer for offset. I had some on a jeep.
Very Good, also used as and adapter So you can put a different size bolt hole pattern wheel on different model cars.
ie: Ford rims will bolt onto chevy truck using the right adapter, Worked pretty good
But… They were made from aluminum and could snap if you were hard on them and that was a bad thing
Anyone know how old most of us are here
Are we all Old Foggies
Cal you are so right
A video to help those
I know that one, it’s a wheel spacer and should never be used.
Yes , We use to use them when we could not afford pricey new rims for different vehicles,
You could get them to adapt to most car bolt patterns, They worked but I never drove at high speed or did more then a few burnouts and then always checked them for cracks and splits.
Them did fracture and cause the wheel to fly off, never saw one do it but there were warnings all over the place.
Running open headers and glass packs was always fun but attached the Man every trip to the store.
" You do know why I pulled you over , Right"
Oh the Good old days
