Re: Transmission Leaking

Additives normally consist of something that softens the seals. Not a very good solution. Sorry for the bad news, but think the only solution involves pulling the trans.

Re: Selling a vehicle and money questions...

There was a politician that was brought up on charges not to long ago for multiple withdrawals over several days. He was attempting to get around the reporting requirement.

Re: help needed

That looks like a converted axle to me. That was where the rearend was modified to to take later model axles. They would be removed just like any other late model axle would.

Re: drill holes in 51 8ba block

If we are talking just adding the center holes for the manifold then sure, no problem. I thought we were talking about a totally different bolt pattern!

Re: drill holes in 51 8ba block

I wouldn't, I would get or fabracate an adapter.

Edit: comment was related to drilling a totally different bolt configuration, which doesn't appear to be the question.

Re: 32 v-8 starter installation with the new modern bendix

This is a common issue and yes grinding the clearance is the solution.

Re: Foundering flathead

If the vacuum is not connected to the loadamatic then it is not going to work. The loadamatic is totally dependent on that connection and will not function without it. This would have a major...

Re: Leaf spring alignment bolt under axle pad

I would have to ask why mess with it (the through bolt). It just holds the spring together and locates the axle pad during assembly, once the u-bolts are installed and tightened it doesn't serve...

Re: Old Herbrand Tool for pulling heads off Flathead V8's.

That's interesting, normally they pop right off. The heads must have been totally fused to the block!

Re: Old Herbrand Tool for pulling heads off Flathead V8's.

LOL, the next best think is built-in! Loosen the bolts/studs and turn it over and off they come.

Re: Cracked 1949 8BA

It just showed up on my computer as well. The crack between the bolt hole and the water passage shouldn't be an issue. The one traveling up from the bolt hole should be drilled at the end as a...

Re: Best way to lower the front '41 coupe?

I like dropped axles, but no where near as simple as reversing the eyes on the spring! I'd do both, but I like them low. :)

Re: Help with banjo rear

Adjusting the shims on each side of the center section is not related to preload. The pinion preload is set by adjusting the nut on the front of the pinion. The shims adjust the backlash between the...

Re: Installing a steering stabilizer

What is the caster angle? That can cause stability issues and can be out of range with split wishbones.

Re: Complete 8BA Flathead - what can I expect to pay

Flatheads are prone to cracks and not just related to water freezing in the block. There are often cracks between the bolt/studs, between them and the bore, between the valves and between the valves...
