Re: Map software

Better check out your GPS reception for where you plan to go unless you use the "old" maps from AAA.

Re: Brake adjustment - Frustration

If your bakes are in good condition, then you have a chance of getting a fairly good adjustment. I am no expert on this subject but what I do is with the wheels off the floor with jack stands under...

Re: installed a new 6:1 head now a tapping noise

Not knowing what I am talking about, but if it has adjustable valves in it, does one or more of them need adjusting??? Additional compression may have activated this click.

Re: GAV Knob Question

Based on what little I know about this problem, but it sure seems like this is the solution. It has been mentioned above also.

Re: WTB KR Wilson Engine Stand

I have a Harbor Freight one that I made a bracket for to hold my engine. Worked great. Think I saw one on their adds for 50 or 60 bucks.

Re: Need some expertise in identifying a wagon

Here is a picture of our huckster. It is made with a Lentville A's body. This body I understand was made similar to the York-Hoover body.

Re: Varnish? on Huckster

I have one of the Lentville A'S body on my huckster. It came with a finish already on it. But each year I try to put a coat of Armstrong "shine keeper" floor finish. This keeps the moisture from...

Re: OK! Oldtimers, Gimme your best answer, Stuck Engine

Re: OK! Oldtimers, Gimme your best answer, Stuck Engine

Speaking about wood, I used a 4 x 4 with a heavy hammer on my T that was rusted and it moved. But don't know if that would help you. Have you taken the pan off yet?

Re: Zenith 2 mystery

Re: looking for a good shop

They are not in your area, but you may want to try to have Bert's in Denver repair it for you. I swapped my radiator with one of their rebuilts and it has worked great. But they may just rebuild...

Ron, sounds like you have a project ahead of you. My huckster was made from a completed body that I purchased from Lentville A's back in Holland, MI. I just went back there and picked it up from...

Re: Front cross member needed badly

I found I did not have to spread them. But it may depend on what shape your car is in. If it had a bump in the past, may be sprung.
