Re: 1950 f1

Congrats on receiving a treasure, and the new tank.

Before I play with gas, indoors, I always check the exits, check my extinguishers, park those old fashioned drop lights, and think about a plan...

Re: Air shocks ?

I can say you must satisfy your need. One of my vehicles has air shocks. Just want to point out that while you can control ride height, you cannot ride comfort. Down is soft, up is hard.

Sorry I...

Re: Scat vs Merc crank

No the problems came from Scat and Scat was not responsible to the issue.

The thing about the rods is clearance. Eagle required massaging.

Re: Scat vs Merc crank

I can't speak about Merc crank prices. They work great if not damaged. However the word here, ( I'm sure someone else will speak up. ) is Scat cranks are problematic, a better choice is Eagle....

Re: Need to replace headgasket

In the case of studs I'd say no. The idea of bolt threads leaking would be due to unidentified variances ( rust ) in the block. Studs and nuts allow for visual Id of threads. The process I cited...

Re: Need to replace headgasket

Two things I would try, first some Indian Head on each bolt thread. One at a time, and torque to spec. To avoid buying a gasket. At the same time use a hardened steel washer on each ( if not already ...

Re: Model B spark plug change

Thank you for that. I must say the shroud looks very tidy. Your solution to coolant loss is also neat.

Thumbs up Re: clutch rod clevis? 1933 model B

No, it stays where it is applied. It is a paste of oil and aluminum, I've been told.

It comes in a heavy vinyl jar. Has brush in the cap.

I use it on bolt / lug threads, and brake backing...

Re: clutch rod clevis? 1933 model B

I like Permatex Anti Seize. It won't drip during assembly. A light coat brushed on contact surfaces, should get you there. Then wash your hands before assembly. Good Luck.

Re: Model B spark plug change

Just spent a few minutes peering under your hood. All seems to be in order.

Care to tell us about the WP bib, and the sight glass?

Re: Coolant drama

Many years back I would would get polluted with alcohol. The result was overheating and excess leakage. So I can see that as a definite factor.:D:D

Re: Clutch Wear

To address the question of worn out lining, I'd say there is plenty of lining.

Some "Long style" fingers are adjustable. If so, setting the fingers deeper will give more disengagement at the...

Not for me to say, however, my disabilities tho different are imprisoning me.

Re: 1940 Starter

Best way to know, is to get the new one in place. Then, if troubles are afoot the search shall be renewed. Good Luck.

Keep those pain remedies handy.
