Re: A few questions on a 8BA

Hell, Los, you need more than one anyway. Good to get started on that 2 ton pile you're gonna have.

Re: A few questions on a 8BA

I took apart a 53 that had sat for years and years. Oil sludge inside, but nothing else had gotten in there. I never figured out why it was abandoned. I could have made it run, but.....when I got the...

Re: 1951 Ford Split Rims

I don't think anybody mentioned you air em up with a long hose and a clip on air chuck. Turn the air on from over at the compressor.

Re: 1951 Ford Split Rims

My old 48 Stude had those wheels with the retaining ring, but the ring is welded into a one piece circle. You gotta egg shape them to get em off or on. That was an adventure putting tires on that...

Re: '35 Coupe 5 window value

What I'd do is buy it for whatever it takes. And then lie to my wife about what I paid.

Re: Copper coat gasket spray.

Like Jack and others, I don't use any sealer type stuff unless I have to. I like 3Bond at the water pumps, etc. I mostly work on old motorcycles, use copper head gaskets- these always get coppercoat....

Re: Copper coat gasket spray.

What Kube said, been using Permatex coppercoat for 50 years. But I ain't putting it on any more Felpro composition head gaskets!

Re: 255 merc excessive ring end-gap?

Frank: Contemporary thought, (I read a lot) seems to suggest the second ring gap should be larger?

Re: 1951 Ford overdrive

Laserman: I'm following this, too. Do you suppose that was just wear from a hard used transmission, or maybe started with a defect?

Re: Spark plug wires

I love that Brillman place. I've bought the 440 wire, all kinds of boots and clips from him. And 2/0 battery cable, cable ends, solder pellets, etc., etc. I like making my own stuff.

Re: 52 Flathead rebuild

What Ron suggests is what I do, over and over again for years. So much nicer than golf or fishing. Still gotta buy a lot of parts, but machine shop bill is easy to pay.

Re: Memorial day, 2020

I always use this day to think a lot about Warren S. and Captain B. Each was my best friend for a time, and each died in the spring of 1971.

Re: Jack recall, chinese junk from Harbor Freight

Sometimes people forget that a lot of the stuff made in USA is junk now. The same greed dogs that sent so much industry to Asia don't allow people here to do their best anymore.
