Re: Foaming Coolant

Tonight i retorqued the head nuts. The front two were a little loose. The rest were good.

Re: Foaming Coolant

I'll retorque the head this weekend.
I wonder if adding a surfactant to the coolant would help. When I got home, the head was 176* at it's warmest point between spark plugs. It was not boiling over...

Foaming Coolant

Ok, you guessed it.
I'm having trouble with foaming coolant.

Re: So Henry ... why is my banjo round?

It's round because if it were any other shape, it would sound like a different instrument.

Gale has his theory but the truth is, there are tons of square back diff covers running around on trucks...

Re: Model A weight distribution

Just take them to a grain elevator or truck stop and weigh them. Just the front axle, then the whole car, subtract the front axle weight gives rear axle weight. No more guessing and costs about $10...

Re: Is fuel bubbling normal

If you are using an ethanol blend, ethanol has a much lower boiling point. Something like 147*.

30 A Listing

The car is leaning to the left.
How do I get her setting level again? Besides cutting off the ethanol and waiting for her to sober up

Re: Working on the '41

Re: How much grease in U-Joint cavity

Makes perfect sense. Thanks.
I just looked up CV joint grease and it's NLGI #1.5, so quite a bit thicker.

Re: How much grease in U-Joint cavity

I was thinking about using modern CV joint grease so the u-joint doesn't just cut a channel in the grease and run dry even though it's surrounded by grease. Thoughts?

Re: Rear Axle Shaft Repair?

I agree that a good used or better yet a NOS axle shaft is the best option however I have been searching and I'm not able to find one.

Rear Axle Shaft Repair?

I'm working on a '40 pickup rear end. The left side axle has a worn out keyway and is actually broke out at the end. The threads, bearing/seal surfaces and side gear are in good shape.
Has anyone...

Re: Gear box oil

Most motorcycle oils are GL-1 rated. You can get a straight 60 from Harley Davidson that is used in pre-evolution engines.
