Re: Tire Rotation

I've been told that too and that the walls don't like it but I'm sceptical. If we consider the rear tyres, they are driven in one direct by the motor, then driven in the other when the brakes are...

Re: 7 Tooth Box..Question

There are indeed only 2 adjustments on a 7 tooth steering box. The end play in the steering shaft is adjusted at the time of assembly by the addition or removal of shims. The end play in the sector...

Re: 6 blade plastic radiator fan

I've never heard of an aluminium 2 blade fan coming apart. I have been running one of those plastic ones for about 50-55,000 miles now without issue.

Re: Foamy Transmission Oil

Yes, that is exactly the one. It also comes in a 140 and 90 grade but that is beside the point now. I think there must be something out of the ordinary happening in your gearbox. I have never had nor...

Re: Foamy Transmission Oil

I have been assuming the Penrite 250 oil you have been using is the same as we get. Ours is labelled "Penrite Transoil 250". Is yours the same. Maybe we are not talking about the same oil.

Re: Foamy Transmission Oil

I have used Penrite 250 for many years and have no intention of changing. I have never had an issue.
How long have you been using Penrite and why do you want to change? What evidence is there that...

Re: Roads in the old days Australia

Thanks Eric. When my wife and I have been travelling in the US, we are often asked "Where are you folks from?" by people who notice our accents. (To us, you guys have the accent.) When we tell them...

Re: Mouse retardant - dryer sheets

That's probably what we call "Rat Shot". The name says it all.

Re: Mouse retardant - dryer sheets

I know it's the wrong time of year to be worried about mice but during autumn when they start to move inside, I put out packets of mouse and rat poison. It contains an anticoagulant which causes the...

Re: W.W. Tires

I would never use powder coating. The wheels on my 1930 CCPU were powder coated when I bought it in a nice burgundy colour. They have faded to a dirty rusty brown colour and they look terrible. I...

Re: Gas mileage question

My fuel economy vs your fuel economy is a bit like "Which oil do you use?" Everybody has something to say, yet at the end of it all, it doesn't really matter. IMO, we should jusy get in and drive the...

Re: Yard art 28 coupe

Re: Glass Wind Wings

I concluded that the problem was a combination of poor quality clamps and the glass being so heavy so I have converted to an acrylic (or is it polycarbonate?) wind wing which is much lighter. They do...

Re: drive shaft diameter question

The pinion bearing lock nuts should be way larger than the drive shaft. If yours are not, I'd like to see a picture. The small drive shaft from the Mitchell O/D is much larger than the original one...

Re: Roads in the old days Australia

This will give you some idea but years ago, the roads were so rough that when you hit a pothole full of bull dust, you couldn't see it and you'd hit it at speed and maybe destroy your vehicle. The...

Re: Starting Issue - Need Ideas!

If the timing is too far advanced, as each cylinder comes up to compression on the starter, it fires before the piston is at the top. That puts enormous strain on the starter which is fighting the...
