Re: U Joint replacement Engine Out

Also the brake and clutch pedals. Just did the same thing. I’m putting it back as a single assembly. Engine and tranny bolted together.

Re: Vacuum testing to diagnose fast idle

When you say loose valve guides, do you mean worn stem clearance, or not securely attached?

Re: Swapping to collapsible steering column?

The hood in a head on, can come up and through the windshield into someone’s face, or upper chest. I’ve see in happen.
Unfortunately the driver died from the column, and passenger from the hood.

If the oil drains out good, and there’s no sludge in there, I wouldn’t pull the pan. I would start it and then if you hear any noise down there then you can do it. You’re not going to hurt the babbit...

Re: 8 volt battery in 6 volt car

I would have to say, stick with 6 V, clean all your connections, make sure your battery cables are good, and it’ll crank over like crazy. In my opinion eight volts is just a Band-Aid fix to cover up...

Re: No nut manifold clamp

I really don’t see, or have, a problem with the original design. I can see how it’s a bugger on the RHD though.
