Re: Redoing Brakes

I have also heard it asserted that a brake job if done correctly will start with the king pins being replaced in most instances, and the bearings. Is that a valid argument? The story is that when the...

Re: No need to go 70mph

Re: Sand Blast Box air pressure

Can't help you but I had a blast box from HF and my compressor would produce about 100 psi continuously through the hose and that wasn't enough to make it operate satisfactorily. Seems to take quite...

Re: Windshield Glass Type

Re: 12 V Coil

Check the manf. of the coil also. It may have a resistor built in. Mine didn't and burned out very quickly and messy. Was an expensive one with resin filler, blew the bottom (top on Model A) out and...

Re: 100 Car find

I have owned a lot of those same type cars over the years, probably 100 or so. Now I bet less than half of the ones I owned are still around anywhere. Perhaps a half dozen Austin Healeys and a couple...

Re: Weld and grind roller tracks

You've all convinced me. Going to stick with hydraulics. I can't weld and don't own a milling machine. Too many places to have failure on such an important function.
