Spark plug thread renewal suggestions

I would like to put new threads into a set of Edmunds heads. All 8 spark plug holes feel to loose to me. Am looking for suggestions on heli-coil or thread-serts. Any specific brand that seems to be...

Re: Transmission interchange parts

Thanks for the good info. I was not aware of Van Pelt's book. Looks like a must have.

Re: Front wheel bearings

Re: Front wheel bearings

It is all in the "feel". The more you do it you get used to it. You want no preload and no play. I used to repair forklift trucks that had tapered bearings but required 40 lbs. of preload. The rear...

Re: When did Ford switch 6 to 12v ?

I wonder if they left the 6 volt starter in the car. I switched an old Allis Chalmers tractor to 12 volts but kept the 6 volt starter. This was a common practice and in 25+ Years it was the best...

Re: Fixer's idea or aftermarket?

I just assumed that drop lever would be OK as it is the lever on the column drop. My mind is probably "down under" most of the time. The parts book calls it (column drop) lock assembly:steering and...

Re: Fixer's idea or aftermarket?

Me three. However, the door lock levers are crimped over to hold an insert. If it is a door lock lever, someone did a PERFECT job cutting the crimp off and making the resulting hole perfectly round...

Re: Fixer's idea or aftermarket?

If you look at the first picture I posted you can see that the tapered recess for the hold down screw is small, like the door lock lever. The original screw would protrude out too far.

Re: Fixer's idea or aftermarket?

The lever appears to be stamped brass and plated. It is not magnetic. If someone made this from a door lock lever it was done very well. It fits tightly and I have not tried to remove it.

It appears that the firewall is riveted to the cowl. If so, I wonder where else this is done on this beauty.

Re: Lawson -- is this you?

I have received 3 similar emails but did not open any. They had come from a different but very active member. A strong "fish" smell. I believe there is a "fungus amungus" !
