Re: 1951 customzed convertible

Re: Oil Leak

Check your oil cap and remove that stuffing. I had a new cap and the stop tabs wern't bent so when the cap went on it was closed off and built up pressure forcing oil out the rear main.

Re: Fuel Spark Arrestor in bottom of Tank, removal

you might be able to get a small but long forcepts thru the opening or even a hooked wire clothes hanger if you can see it. Use a small, powerful penlight to look through the gas opening.
