Re: Stuck Spark/Gas Levers

I had one like this. We got the wheel off and were able to pull the rod out through the top with the column still in the car. Cleaned it up, lubed it and put it back in. Takes a little time to...

Re: Dead Short - how do I find it?

Sounds like you have two problems. Make sure the batt cable is not touching anything on the way to your master switch. Probably a master switch that is not breaking the circuit. With the key off,...

Re: stuck transmission?

Push the clutch in and try to rotate one of the rear wheels. This will clear your u joint.

Tappet replacement

I need to replace a few tappets. How do I keep them in place when I drop the cam shaft? Engine is still in the car.

Re: New distributor skips a beat

Take a close look at the movable point arm. Sometimes the arm can short out on the cam.

Re: Hot water heater

You got that right. Don't create a major problem when you are on the road and have to take out the floor boards. Don't lock yourself into a big job every time you want to check something or change...

Re: Stalls When Braking

You probably have a small intake air leak. File the intake manifold flat. Clean it up until it is all shiny. Do the same thing with your carb flange, then use a new gasket. That small air leak is...

Re: Staying warm in winter

I drive my roadster in the mild winters of SC and came up with this blanket that captures the engine heat. Works pretty good.

Re: After replacing with 2 bladed aluminum fan, engine noise abounds

The belt load is offset from the bearing and puts a moment on the joint between the fan hub and shaft. Run your belt tension as low as you can. Put the fan on the shaft and try to wobble it. If it...

Re: OK,I wanna change my......
