Re: Copper Gooseneck gasket

Tricky at best. Using Match sticks works. I have a brand new broken goose neck hanging on the garage wall as a reminder. Good luck.

Re: Ormond Beach, FL, Model A estate sale

Figures - I’m out of the country for 10days. I live 2 hours south. I would like to buy a couple rims to practice spoke straightening. Think the ad said one day sale. That’s a lot of parts

Re: Wire spoke wheel trueing

Thanks guys. I have heard the pros and cons of using heat. I might purchase the tool MACs or SNYDERS Have. I have a deluxe coupe with six rims. Will get worst one and experiment.
Thanks again.

Re: marvel mystery oil

I use it when I have the heads off to keep the cylinder walls oiled and clean - I use it heavily during this maintenance time and never had it foul up my motors. Great stuff.
