Re: Query: How to remove/replace fuel pump valves?

Renner's Corner might be able to help you. I'm thinking it's an aftermarket pump. Any markings??

Re: New distributor skips a beat

It will move some CCW, normal, Try putting some Marvel Mystery Oil or ATF in the gas and run it. For you probably 6 ozs. Won't hurt anything.

Re: 1929 Tudor Door hinge pin replacement

Try drilling it out. Grind the top of the pin off and drill from the top, small drill bit to start then larger. Protect the painted surfaces. JMO
