Re: Oil change after head gasket job?

You'd be better off to vacuum out the cylinders rather than using compressed air. Compressed air might force particles down to where you don't want them.

Re: Best way to scuff a clean head

Can you post a picture of that? Some of us are interested as to where that "oil passage" is.

Re: Help me identify engine noise?

I had a similar noise, it was the springs or the plate of the front motor mount where it sits on the crossmember. A little oil shut it right up.

Re: HF infrared gun reviews

NO, you need a probe type thermometer for that, as you need to read the temperature INSIDE the meat.

Re: Gas Aspiration Problem?

If the pin is in the dimple and the #1 piston is down, it sounds like the mesh of the timing gears is incorrect. To verify you will have to pull the timing gear cover.

Re: Hinge pins

How about trying a pin punch type fitting in an air chisel gun?
Instead of WD40 try using Kroil or the acetone/atf mix.

Re: Electrical Problem?

Does the car have the foot push starter switch? Or does it have/use a solenoid?



FWIW, a Model A engine can be cranked over w/the starter or by using the hand crank.

Re: tell a Model A related story

I would suspect that the oil level is too high in the tranny, causing the error code.
Is there a dipstick or other option for checking the oil level in that tranny?
