Re: 40 brake question

Those bolts on my cars have holes in them for cotter keys. Look closely and see if the remnants of a cotter key is in the hole and looks like threads.

Re: To fuse or not to fuse

If your button just goes to ground, probably don't need a fuse. If it is supplying power to the relay then yes. In general grounds shouldn't be fused.

Re: Anyone with experiences working with Gocat speed shop?

I agree with Bored&Stroked, I have 1 engine it would cost at least that much again to replace if I had to. If I could afford a set of Ardun heads, 10k would seem like chump change.

Re: Overheating Flathead

Are the heads aluminum or cast iron? Have you retorqued the heads AT LEAST 3 times? Do you know how you are supposed to do that?
Good luck.

Re: Maine Machine Shop to Replace wheel Bearing Races?

Automotive Stud must think we are a bunch of crazy old coots! I guess this is only slightly off topic! He hasn't sent me his mailing address!

Re: Floor jack won't release under load, any ideas?

Buy a new aluminum jack. Then jack up the vehicle and remove the old jack. It's time.

Re: 1940 Ford floor plates around column/pedals

You can make one. If you look where each end lands, there is a square depression in the piece you have. The piece you need is very skinny in the middle where it needs to be to clear the steering...

Re: 36 engine questions.

Now I know why the senders have an arrow on them. When mounted horizontally, the arrow I believe is supposed to be up when tightened.

Re: Columbia 2 speed A-7 differential baffle

Re: Well...this ain't good

Glad the problem you encountered has a fairly easy solution. I had an outboard motor do the same thing and wondered what the explosion was.
