Re: 31 Roadster pickup cab swap to Truck cab

Re: Water Tempature Reading

Removed probe and placed in pail boiling water. ARCO went to 190 before decaying.

This has felt me thinking I was overheating.
Thanks

Spare Tire In the Wheel Well

Am I supposed to put that tire assembly into the wheel well -- without any air in it, or what? That's a real bitch when it's fully inflated.

Re: Budd Wheel Manufacturing Company

Re: Marvel Mystery Oil in Crankcase

Has anyone been using Mystery Oil in the crankcase?

Ron[/QUOTE]




YES, and it led to a knock. Since I've switched away, so has that knock.
Tho I'll need more time to know that for sure.

Tire Stems

Why are the stems so tall? Having trouble servicing without bending them over, which I don't think should be done.

Re: Dispatch Pocket Wood

No wood blocks needed. The pocket comes with medal strips that go behind the kick-panel that you will attach the pocket on for the other side. Everything is in the kit.
This meant for the 30/31's
