Re: Title change

Sign your name and date, and any other information some where on the car that only you and one of your love ones know about. Plus try to get the proper paper work.

Re: OK! Oldtimers, Gimme your best answer, Stuck Engine

I,m 90% sure it is the rear main. you can check that by dropping the pan and cap. This is not a new problem. You have to leave more clearance on the rear main or put a oil grove in the upper insert.

Re: OK! Oldtimers, Gimme your best answer, Stuck Engine

If it was the rings you should have seen marks on the cylinder walls.. Most likely a main bearing was to tight.

Re: AA transmission in an A

I do not have the answer, but the AA that I had had a short drive shaft, then a long one. I would think the pickup had a different setup so you would not have to change the drive shaft. I do know the...

Re: 29 Tudor with bad vibration at idle

you said original mounts. Do you have the front mount real tight if so that will cause it. The nut should only be on far enough to get the cotter pin in.

Re: Oil drain tube

The drain tube works like a boat in the current of a river. The oil does the same form the tube it flows with the current. Which will pull oil out of the rear main.
