Re: What's your "Go To" for a hard head?

True, but it might work, the issue is the same. Pictures posted in MISC album. You would certainly have to go slow.

Re: What's your "Go To" for a hard head?

I have a special very THIN hole saw like tool that just fits over the stud that goes down and cuts the aluminum oxidation that is causing the problem. This tool is made to be used by hand I think. ...

Re: Now it's junk from Carpenter!

Yeah, if I get something and it comes in a Vintique package I don't even try to return it. I throw it in my plastic bins for my swap meet stalls. Don't even open it.

Re: Scam

He can change his name, email address but usually not his mailing address. Please tell us the address you sent the hood to. Might help keep him from burning someone else.

Re: Hard to start when hot

If there is fuel in the carb when it won't start it is either flooded or other reason. When you say it has a "good amount" can you be specific and measure down from the top edge of the bowl?. If...

Re: WTF?? battery 30V ?

I haven't heard anything about ground. Is it + or -? If the alt was hooked up wrong even for a second, (plausible suspicion) diodes are probably toast. I believe there are probably many things...

Re: WTF?? battery 30V ?

I don't think it is possible chemically for a 12 v battery to store 30volts. You must have made this measurement with it running and the alternator is messed up. 1 wire alternators are internally...

Re: Fuel pump

The cam lobe the rod rides on may be worn if the rod itself is the correct length. I have seen a KRW tool that measures the length of travel of the rod. A dial indicator could do the same thing.
