Re: Failing gas tank sealant

I used the Hirsch sealer, so far so good. If I had to do it again, I would just send my tank out to B. Terry Restorations.

Re: ROTELLA 15W 40 Oil

Why do I have to ask Jim, obviously you must have a reason or an answer why the air filter is not good.

I did notice one thing, when I do an oil change, this 15w 40 is very dark, compared to my modern car oil changes, for whatever that means.

Re: Just bought a 1931 Model A

Did you do the floor yourself? I want to do the same to my garage floor, but not sure which paint to buy. Home Depot has that Epoxy mix paint, but I was told it might not hold up.

Oil pump or intake Manifold Vacuum hole bolt

I replaced that cheap screw in bolt they sell, because when I went to unscrew it, the top stripped. I replaced it with an easy to remove brass bolt. Its the bolt below in the picture.
