Re: Primer for YOM plates

You should be fine but try and use the same manufacture for the top coat of paint . Read the labels on the can for the correct time between coats.

Re: air bubbles in rad water.

I have seen small gas bubbles in engines with no head gasket problems. This is caused by local hot spots which boil some of the coolant releasing oxygen molecules.

Re: Fan replacement

After losing a fan 35 years ago I went with the aluminum fan which came powder coated black and balanced. I would never run a original fan again.

Re: Failing gas tank sealant

I think I would forget the pencil filter and build what's called a dirty leg. Do a search on this site to see how it is made and run with it until the flanking stops.

Re: 31 slant window outside door handle sag

I agree with what Duke36 has suggested and have fixed many this way. I don't use pliers to make the slight twist I use an 8 inch Cresent wrench.
