Re: Really old gasoline question

Get a big bag (or two) of the oil absorbent material and use it to absorb the gasoline. Once it is completely absorbed into the material you can dispose of it in the landfill since it will be...

Re: Oil In My Water

My oldest boy was about the same age when he filled up my cassette player in my truck with the change I kept in the ash tray of my truck. Never worked again.

Re: Oil In My Water

Simple Green is a great product to use for getting grease and oils out. I didn't mention it in my earlier post as using it diluted may not be strong enough to clear it out. That is unless you put...

Re: Trans oil leaking from speedo housing

If it started to drip only after you added the oil it seems to me that you may have filled it too full and the excess is finding its way out through the rear bearing. Pull the plug on the side of the...

Re: Oil In My Water

Good chance it is just grease from the water pump. If you don't see any water in the oil I would consider draining the coolant and putting water and a detergent in the cooling system and run it for a...

Re: cracked cyl head

It is tempting to use putty knives and screw drivers to help in lifting heads off. Using screw drivers or similar can and often will damage the edge of your block. Resist the temptation to do that....

Re: Wood graining

Re: oil leak, B/W O/D

I don't think Dodge meant for you to put the brake cleaner inside but to use it on the outside of the joint to get it squeaky clean before putting a bead around the joint. I did the same thing to the...

Re: Engine Oil consumption

I use no oil in between 500 mile oil changes but my engine is fairly fresh at around 6000 miles.

So to me that is not a good comparison to your engine that has 45,000 miles on it.

Only WHN has...

Re: Historical use of Model A to run farm equipment

Here is a couple pictures of what I call a jack shaft that is run off the input side of a Model A transmission.

Re: New to the Addiction...

You might not be running hot at all. However driving the car at 63 might be pushing it a bit and causing things to warm up.

The fan belt should not be super tight. Just enough tension to turn the...

Re: Rubber mounting the muffler

I've done something quite similar with my AA. No noises at all. I am pleased with it.

Re: '29 A Town Sedan, over heating

We still need to know if you are actually overheating??
Get a thermometer and find out for sure what the temperature of the coolant is.
To me it doesn't sound as if you are really sure the timing...

Re: Distributor help

Take the distributor off of your car and put it on his once you get his off. Set the timing and see if it runs. Will let you know if the problem is in the distributor or in the switch.
Talk him...

Re: Radiator fill question

Fill it up to just over the baffle and run it for a while. It just might be happy at the level and stay there without pushing any out the overflow tube.
Worth a try.

Re: Removing fan blade

Yes tapping on the nut works well. I take the nut off, reverse it and thread it back on 90% of the way. Be careful not to strike it too hard and off center as you can bend the shaft at the threaded...

Transmission oil shields

Are the oil shields next to the main bearings the same? I've opened up a later transmission that does not have one at the rear bearing.

April 28 engine / Free

Re: Gas Shutoff/empty carburetor for overnight/long term parking.

Jack up the car and place jack stands on the passenger side of the car so it is higher so as to get the last bit of gasoline away from the fuel valve before you remove it.

Re: 1928

Replace the condenser first and see if that helps. Cheap and easy. Replace the coil second if that doesn't help. Only do one at a time that way you know what fixed it if it does.

Re: Sick ahooga horn

Take some fine sand paper and hold it lightly against the armature while you push the horn button to rotate it. It will clean and shine it up a bit. Doesn't take long and works wonders.
