I have a really cool heater for sale. Stamping on motor says "46" so I'm guessing that's the year it's from? Made by Tropic-Aire. I had this in my coupe for the last 5 years. It works perfectly with...

Re: Mechanical Oil pressure gauge fittings

Get rid of the copper and nylon and install an AN-4 braided hose before they break. It just happened to me last weekend and cleaning 20/50 off my car a motor was not fun.

Re: NGK Plugs

I'm using NGK's in my blown flathead with excellent results. They were recommended by some well known people here and so far so good. My 2 cents.

So I'm having my machinist make me a 3/8" thick washer at the proper diameter (1.750 OD) with a grade 8 bolt and the Nord-Lock system. I'll torque to 65-70 lbs and check it everytime I go for a ride....

Re: Crank pulley bolt...Lost again!!

Could there be a problem with the space between the pulley face and crank face? It's about a 3/16" recess.
