Re: Jackson III 2nd Condenser -How

Re: Shot The Carburator

I think you mean you aimed an infrared temperature sensor or gun at the carb, lines etc. to see how hot they get.

Re: Gas seepage at steering column

I would follow Ernie Vitucci's suggestion. Installing a 30-31 hanger will relieve the strain on the crack. Applying a clear epoxy (not JB Weld) to a clean metal surface will bond to the metal and...

Re: Zenith Carb Leak Puzzle

My experience with a leaky carburetor is on going. I think I have tried every one of the float shut off valves offered by the parts suppliers. I have not found one that works 100% of the time. The...

Re: After Replacing the Headgasket - Update

Re: point gap ??

Re: Reducing Fumes and Noise

Fumes inside the vehicle is not a good thing especially if they are exhaust related. Excessive fumes coming from the oil fill pipe is a sign of engine wear. In my view it is much safer to take care...

Re: Does anyone know this generator?

Andy, Keep it simple, buy a small rechargeable sealed 12 volt battery and use it to power your radio. I am assuming you will not be using high wattage speakers. The battery can be placed under a seat...

Re: 30-31 instrument panel

Maybe the screws you are using are too long thereby, bottoming out and preventing the dash panel to properly fit snug against the tank.

Re: Loose Rod

Re: 6V Turn Signal Buzzer

Look on Ebay for a 6 volt buzzer. There are some small buzzers or annunciators that will do the job for about $5 - $8 that can be wired in parallel with your flasher.

Re: Flywheel Housing Alignment

This method of gauging run out is confusing. Suppose the snap ring diameter in the case exceeds the .006" limit due to it being out of round in a free state? This has nothing to do with the engine...

Re: Stuck Cylinder Head Stud

Try welding the nut to the stud. Then use a battery or pneumatic power impact gun. I would not use a lever type wrench as the applied offset torque could cause the stud to yield prematurely and break.
