Re: Interior tacks

Suggest using brads with the smallest heads possible. Drive only far enough to set the panel below the material surface, then pull material out above head with a needle.

Depends where and how the toe is measured , 6" up from the floor, center line of the hub/spindle, etc. ? Can the tires out of round contribute to false readings ?

Re: Timken front wheel bearings good source

Suggest measuring the spindles' o.d. and ask if your vendors will supply the bearings' actual i.d. As stated, there are slight variations which will not allow a slip fit.

Re: Timken front wheel bearings good source

Couldn't get the new Timken 15118 inner bearings to fit on the spindles like in other posts.

Re: A-v8

Since mod's being done, drop in a 2000cc Pinto with syncro tranny. Can run ac and accessories. Looks more like an A block than a V8 and more reliable.
