Re: Eagle 4" 8BA Crank?

I was of the opinion that only some '32 cranks were steel. I will be interested in where this iron/steel discussion goes,

Re: condenser re-locating to coil

A longer lead does add to the capacitance. If you look at a high-end condenser tester, it will have special short leads to be used when testing condensers for exactly this reason. Most Mallory...

Re: ***Need help on BRAKES - 53 Merc Monterey***

In my experience, they ship the same or next day. I must be lucky, because I've never had a bad experience with them.

Up to a couple of years ago, they had year-end clearance sales, and I was able...

Are we correct in assuming that you are using an original type (non-electric) gauge?

Re: Mart's Sparks: A turn signal tip from Mart's Garage. Easier than I thought!

I mean, do you have to take the usual parking light lead and reconnect it to a fourth terminal on the headlight unit?

Re: Mart's Sparks: A turn signal tip from Mart's Garage. Easier than I thought!

Pretty neat, but I have a question. How do you actuate the parking light function in the new headlights?

Re: 36 Ford Tudor; steering parts vendor?

A couple of things. Lares manufacturing in Cambridge, MN is able to rebuild just about any steering gear. I will also second the motion for a later replacement box in a '36 Ford. I put a '37 into my...

Re: 36 Ford Sedan headlight bezel removal

At least Ford was consistent. I have the exact problem with my '51. The passenger side comes off easily, but I can't get the drivers side off to save my soul. I think at some time, the bezel got...

Re: Jack recall, chinese junk from Harbor Freight

I'm sure most of us on here can recall when Sears sold two completely separate lines of tools. "Dunlap" for the masses and "Craftsman" for those who cared.

I am unfamiliar with these; do they shift manually (NO synchromesh)?

Re: carberator problem

I would stick with "our Charlie" ("Charlie ny") or some other guys that actually post on this board for advice and parts.

I have had some bad experiences with the other "Charlie" : (Vintage Speed).

Re: New Motor Overheating

Keep at it. I had a fresh rebuild in a '67 Corvette that wouldn't idle for any length of time without overheating. At a little less than 2000 miles, just when I was steeling myself to dig into it, it...

Re: carberator problem

Are you sure it's not stuck in it's well? They sometimes stick in there. Take a penlight and have a look. I've had to soak, shake, and twiddle to get them out. I is's missing or stuck, it can cause...

He was an L.A. police officer and was wounded in the line of duty, which led to his retirement.

Re: Jack recall, chinese junk from Harbor Freight

Re: Help with Identifying a part

Trust me; if that truck was in any gear, moving the crank would have been impossible.

I am still waiting to hear from "Leon Bee", though.
