Re: Can somebody shed some light as to what these people are thinking?

Where are the coups and roadsters? I guess the heavier cars have an advantage.

Re: Need Advice on Removing Broken off Stud and Head

Great idea, ......just don't go too far. I'd limit rotation to barely perceptible. A dead blow hammer should do it.

Re: What's that fearful racket? Mart's 41 pickup. Somethings wrong. 2021 Ep26 Pt2.

Re: 6 volt adjustable voltage regulator?

I had one on my 49 sedan that had a knob adjustment. It worked great. Should have never let that one go. It was a Sears made piece.

Re: Difficulty Bleeding 1940 Brakes

I ask, because i hear it said frequently, that you must not agitate DOT5 because it causes micro bubbles and...

The sun gear gets a steel band around its outer diameter. Some other components get some welding as that is a frequent breaking point also.

I don't believe it is all that critical. I wouldn't worry about it....

Re: intake valve seals??

Have you run it up to temp to be sure your not seeing water vapor? Is it spitting water?

Do a compression check at operating temp throttle wide open.

I didnt see any blowby in the second video.
