Re: Serpentine System for Flatheads

These are interesting ideas you have. Save them to look back on with giggles several years from now.

Seriously, I'm not putting you down, every newbie starts off with ideas that he later thinks...

Re: WTF?? battery 30V ?

Now that the car is running hot wired, the next thing to go dead will be the coil, or perhaps the fire extinguisher.


Note to Philip Swanson: Listen to Koates.

Re: Anyone available to look at a car on Long Island?

I second the advice to contact Long Island RG 21. I had an issue with a seller on Long island some years ago, contacted the RG there, and my problems disappeared immediately. Not to say this is that...

Re: Shopping for a Trailer

When you do get one, be sure to pack your own wheel bearings before you put miles on it. A friend bought a new trailer from the manufacturer, and only discovered his dry bearings after driving cross...

Re: Coolant additives

This is an example of the power of advertising. This is not to knock the product, but No-Rosion is so highly advertised (including regular targeted mailings), they make it very easy to read good...

Re: fuel pump removal?

You might consider adding a new flywheel gear ring and Bendix to your parts shelf... Just for the hell of it. :D

Re: So I have a little problem...

I think you screwed yourself. Read post #2 & #4 . If you take the engine back to the builder, he will happily void the warranty on the build and drill it for you.

Re: Which way does this go?

Don't assume anything fits right out of the box! Your rubber gasket may be similar, and they expect you to trim it to fit, or otherwise not bother to return it. Consider yourself lucky to have found...

Re: So much for Irish Spring and Dryer Sheets.....

It absolutely can do that. The only water normally remaining in those pipes is the water in the bowl of your toilet. If you flush a live rodent, he's likely to want to continue living by climbing...

Re: convertible rear window question

While others may base their advice on memory, Don Rogers always backs up his advice with research. That is not to say others are wrong, but that you can always take Don's advice to the bank!

Re: So much for Irish Spring and Dryer Sheets.....

There is no poison that selectively kills only rodents. All animals in the food chain are at risk, including animals that eat the poisoned animals.

Re: So much for Irish Spring and Dryer Sheets.....

For myself and other city boys, the task is not to eradicate a world full of rodents, but to deny them entrance to our buildings. I know, lots of barns and outbuildings are not possible to put up...

Re: Vibration - rumble

Wheel weights may be of the less reliable variety that use sticky stuff instead of the older metal clips. Tires also may separate internally, causing a bubble or other imbalance. It does seem to me...
