Re: Clutch Chatter & Flywheel run-out

Re: Trouble shifting into 2nd or 3rd- BUT.. Unique situation

1 out of 50 ain't too BAD, but try shifting with an OPEN palm & sorta' SLAP it into gear. Minerva had "CRISP" detents & required that.
There's another post going on, with a similar problem.

Re: Diff leaking around the bolts

Permatex # 2 works well, to seal the bolt threads, one at a time. Permatex # 2 will stick to bolt threads, even when they're slightly oily!!!---TRUST me on this one!!!

When watching TV, just throw "REALITY" out the window. Ever watch James Bond, 007??? CRAZY, but LOTS of FUN! "Sometimes" he sleeps with the ENEMY, if she's got a GREAT BODY!!
