Re: Play in shifter.

I would question the condition of shift tower.

Replaced ours many years ago. Shifts fine, with no question of what gear you are going into. Not loose at all.

It does sometimes take spending...

Re: 31 steering wheels, painted or not?

Have tried filling and painting. They never seem to last long.

Put a new one on our 29 thirty years ago, still looks great. I try to keep everything out of direct sun light. Enjoy.

Re: Charging Question

Re: where to get rebuilt carb

Because of past problems with rebuilt Zenith carburetors, I tried a new Zenith 1 from Mac’s.

Right out of the box, no carburetor problems at all. A lot more money but runs like a champ. Enjoy.

Re: GAV Setting

Remember, when closing do not turn tight. Just to the point it stops.

Re: Pin stripe

We have had good luck with pin strip tap.

If you take your time, it can come out very nice. Also easy to remove if you make a mistake. Enjoy.

Re: Sport Coupe Resurrection - Debris in Bores

Put some penetrating oil on head studs. Than put plugs back in. Make sure you remove distributor. Put a few of the head nuts back on very loose.

Now hit your starter. Head should pop right up....

Re: Hotter Than Normal

Remember, the water pump is really only helping at higher RPM’s. The syphon effect does the majority of cooling.

Re: Rear end Lub Question

We have been using a 50/50 mix of 600w oil and STP in our transmission and rear end. Works well, no leakage, shifts nicely.

Leak less water pump in my view is the way to go.

Re: Rust in the sediment bowl and lines

Be careful using a vacuum on a gas tank! Don’t do it.

Also the 29 has the screw in flame arrester. I don’t believe the suppliers sell them, just the 30-31 style. I have purchased a few of the...

Re: Rust in the sediment bowl and lines

The starving for fuel could be dirt/rust in carburetor and/or jets

Re: Rust in the sediment bowl and lines

Flame arrester, should be at mouth of gas tank.

Some people call it a filter.

Mostlikely not your only rust problem if your cars gas tank has never been cleaned.

How did you get it out?
