Re: Is My Cam Going Flat?

To be sure you are on the heal I rotate the engine so the valve I am checking is fully open. Then rotate the crankshaft 360 degrees. That will rotate the cam 180 degrees and you will be sure you are...

Re: Car Stopped Running

I would start by actually testing the fuse not just looking at it. Also check the fuse holder. Start there with you multimeter or test light and trace from there until you run out of juice.

Re: New clutch: Judder from hell

Start with adjusting the pressure plate fingers. That would be the easiest and is probably your problem.

Re: Tudor seat pivot pin

My pivot pins have holes and cotter pins. They sure look original to me but I'm no expert. If the originals had no holes how are they kept in place?

Maybe leave the castle nuts loose until you get the shackles in place.

Re: Setting adjustable tappets

Re: Using Parking Lights For Signal Lights

I had turn signals wired into the parking light bulb in the head lite. That worked fine until I went to LED bulbs so I can run with my head lites on in the daytime. Now you can't see them with the...

Re: Shortened Pitman Arm

I should have said physics tells me that with a shorter arm turning the steering wheel will be easier but you will have to turn the steering wheel more to get the same result.

Re: Shortened Pitman Arm

Ryan. On second thought I think you are right. I said it backwards. Sorry for my old brain fart.

Re: Shortened Pitman Arm

Ryan I see your point about lifting a weight easier with a shorter arm but your not lifting a weight. You are using a fulcrum. Think crow bar. The longer the crow bar the less effort will be needed...

Re: Shortened Pitman Arm

Physics tells me that the effort to turn the wheel will be greater with the shorter pitman arm but you would turn the steering wheel less to have the same effect on the wheels.

Re: Radiator Baffle

I would take the radiator out and turn it upside down to back flush it. Also flush the block separately. You can use the cleaner of your choice but do them separately so one doesn't contaminate the...

Re: Everyday driver insurance

I have liability only on two cars for 288 dollars a year from Hagarty. They tell me I can drive it when I want and where I want.

Re: Battery cable size?

While you're at it ground the engine to the frame with the 00 wire. Most people go from a bell housing bolt to the frame.

Re: Won't start

You may possibly have a short somewhere that blew the fuse. I would wiggle some wires around and make sure the fuse doesn't blow again.

Re: Won't start

Check for voltage coming off your fuse. It may look good but may not be. Just keep going up with a test light or multimeter until you run out of juice and you will find your problem.

Re: Head gasket

How much was taken off the head and block. If they were just cleaned up I wouldn't think you need to worry about too much compression. A little more compression is a good thing. I use the Best Co....
