Re: Mitchell in a 37..Report

Looks great Tommy.

I did the shift lever also. Kind of fits with the truck look for me. Found a vintage knob that fit and painted the lever black.

Really like the mitchell as well. Nice to...

Ive also used a little piece of rubber fuel line as cushion with the clips. Just get a ft of rubberline and cut them into 1" sections. Cut one side so you can slip it over the copper line and tighten...

Re: Is this a bad idea?

Think back in the day Model A's would add some kerosene to oil for a bit to flush. Not sure I'd be confident in breaking anything up. Like mentioned I don't think oil is as bad as it was. I wouldn't...

JSeery, always about bias-plys. I've never had any issue what soever with the bias-ply. Usually the first thing I do with a new vehicle. Also wouldn't hesitate to buy today.

Re: Making your own gaskets

These make great hole punches. Free, as you usually have a few of different sizes left over from kits.

Re: Flathead Friday with Mart. I just can't leave those broken studs alone..

I don't want to be a bugger. When pulling studs, when you feel resistance (you'll know) stop and heat it and add some PM blaster or whatever. Repeat as needed. They will come out. Take your time.
