Re: Fuel pump stand with small pinholes usable?

Here's what I have. Oh, by the way, after I looked at it, I don't think it will fit in a "Small Flat Rate Box". Better plan on over $10 for shipping.

Re: Fuel pump stand with small pinholes usable?

I just looked at the picture you supplied and I think maybe mine might be the right one after all. Like I said, it appears to be NOS (or maybe a repop) and the top large sheet metal tube is not...

Re: anti theft measures used?

I have spent a lot of time ine the "Corvette World", and the general consensus over there is that a locking, alarmed car cover is the singlwe most effective method of preventing theft.

Re: Fuel pump stand with small pinholes usable?

I just measured mine and it is about 3" from the base to the top, so it won't work. Sorry. Too bad; it looks NOS. After looking at it, I don'r see why you just couldn't replace the steel tube with a...

I could tell you what I do, but then I'd have to kill you.;)

Re: 1951 Tudor Sedan steering column

I see your not getting much response. I have a '51 that is completely original in the dash/steering column area that I can look over if you have any specific questions. It may or may not be of any...

Re: Transmission Leaking

Have you checked to see if the transmission has been over-filled? Probably not, but I'd check that before I pulled it out.

Re: Fuel pump stand with small pinholes usable?

I think I saw one on the shelf yesterday that I don't need. If interested, send me the particulars, and if it's the right one, it's yours for shipping. It should fit in a small flat rate box for...

Re: Selling a vehicle and money questions...

Re: Leaf spring alignment bolt under axle pad

I find the part about using a heat gun to cure the paint to be interesting. I have an old kitchen oven converted for use to cure parts I have powder-coated. I have also used it to cure painted small...

Re: Leaf spring alignment bolt under axle pad

It's amazing that something that went together so easily is so difficult to take apart 68 years later...NOT.

Re: Anyone driving today

Probably not here in north-central "Rainesota" (or is it "Coldesota"?). The weather really sucks up here the last couple of years.

Re: Cracked 1949 8BA

You know Russ? I think I agree with you. It looks like it's been there forever and is quite stable; doing anything might upset the equilibrium.

Re: Foundering flathead

Tinker, I guess we'll have to agree to disagree. With the cost of building a flathead what it is today, I'd probably go to great lengths to make sure that no damage would be done to a fresh engine.

Re: Foundering flathead

Tinker, he says it appears to be a fresh build. If it is, "run it hard for a bit" might not be the best idea. If it is a fresh build, I'm afraid it will have to be taken apart and everything checked....

Re: Foundering flathead

As a point of reference, I have a fresh built 258" 8BA with an Isky MAX-1 cam that makes 20 inches of vacuum. It sounds to me that there is something else wrong besides the carburetor. There was a...

Re: Battery Cables for a 1948 flathead 6

When I needed some 6 volt cables for my engine test stand, I went to the local NAPA store and they made them up while I waited. They are very stout and they were very professionally made. A little...

Re: 51 starter mounting plate

It should be noted that the 8BA car starter plate looks a lot like a couple of others. It can be determined to be for a car because the surfaces for the starter mount and the mounting surface for the...
