Re: 6V Voltmeter

Question. wouldn't a 6 volt system read 6v on a 12v volt meter. Being if a 12v battery was only putting out 6v or less, wouldn't that register. Volt meter only interested in the volts.

Re: How do I get pressure plate out.

Good to know, thank you! Flywheels do get changed out or redrilled.

Sh!ts and giggles... 1932-34 trucks had a 9.75" (probably not that common)... 35 up trucks 11".

Re: Help Identify Clutch Pedal

Kind of looks like maybe they used two brake pedals. A brake pedal as a "clutch" pedal.

Re: Help Identify Clutch Pedal

Looks like a 39 pedal setup that someone bent. Custom work, frame even has a nice little pocket. or not. Guess you could put and pedal on it.

Re: Loss of Hot Rod Deluxe

I like the old little 50s mags. Have a small collection.

Now days a lot of magazines are moving into digital content.

One mentioned by the original poster is the 4x4 magazine.......

Re: Looking for exhaust port layout drawing

Take some grease and put a slight amount around the area (or spray WD40). Press the gasket/template material up to it. Boom... template.

Re: Drop Axle Installation

I've seen those "kits" before. Never used.



But my opinion is your really adding play to a system that needs little/no play. Typically doing something like that in 4x4 world increases the odds...

Re: Drop Axle Installation

Have you removed an axle before? Or used a spring spreader?

Re: Radiator support rods question

Leave the nut on when cutting a threaded bolt (etc) down. Once cut, remove the nut. 99% of the time the nut will go back on. Little file work to clean it up.
