Default WTB - Squarebird Items

Trying to see if any forum members have any of these parts to sell that will fit my 59 squarebird.

1. Antenna mast. Like this https://www.larrystbird.com/product/...0-front-mount/ but only NEED the mast.

2. Physical shop manual 1959. Would like the physical copy. Reprinted not original is ok. I see them for $37 on Larry's. Or any of the 1959 physical manuals (I already have owners manual)

3. Fuel pump. Sending unit. Fuel tank. (Don't expect anyone to have one of these just laying around but why not check before potentially buying)

You need more than just the mast. Your post is missing also. You need to replace the inner section which entails taking the entire antenna off.

Thanks - so I would need to buy the full kit? I am not sure what the post is exactly. But probably the only way to get it is to order the kit from the link I provided? I was hoping there was a way around that but if there isn't that ok.

Check with Carl Heller (partsetal). He may be able to sell you just the inner portion with the mast or he may have an entire antenna assembly with a pitted base. If your base is nice you can swap it. Either way you are going to have to remove the antenna. It's only one large nut and one small one but the opening is small so it's a little tricky.
