Re: Cracked Head

Straight water with soluble oil is what I use but it should be drained in the winter if there will be freezing temps. Antifreeze tends to seep and leak and can cause real problems.

A glass shop could sand the excess off non tempered glass easily, if it truly is excess.

Re: Paint or Stain Trunk

It looks too nice to paint or stain. Why not just do a water repellent treatment? If you want a different color the auto parts stores sell fabric dyes in auto colors.

Sound deadener/undercoating in a spray can works well and won't cost too much.

Re: Fresh overhaul & modern lube'

Re: "B" Distributor timing with an "A" front cover

That won't work because the car will run too retarded. I think in this senerio you should buy a B timing cover with a B distributor or add a stop to the A distributor to stop full advance.

Re: "B" Distributor timing with an "A" front cover

Re: starter bendix

I give clean bare metal a light spray of WD-40 to inhibit rusting. It won't hurt the bendix.
