Re: Removing Corn Head grease from steering

Make sure it’s not getting tight somewhere else.

I had a modern vehicle that I thought the pump was defective and it was knuckle joint in...

Re: Cosidering juice brakes

I have the original mechanic brakes on my 38. I’m told that mechanical brakes need to have the softer woven brake shoes material to work best. The shoes look like new when I got the car six years ago

Elgin water pumps, any good?

Are Elgin water pumps for a Flathead any good?
Or is speedway sealed bearing pumps a better deal?
I googled Elgin water pumps and came up with nothing about them

Re: How to repair damage to a deck

I really appreciate the offer but I am in another country.

I never thought of a cutting torch in the valley. My little Cobra torch would probably work quite well.

Re: How to repair damage to a deck

I thought of decking but I donít think it is recommended as the casting is thin in places.
Iím leaning to trying the Extreme Heat JB weld.
First I have to get the 6 stuck valves out.

Re: How to repair damage to a deck

What is the potential damage if you hit it with the Mig Welder. Could the heat cause the cast break? I know ideally to preheat the whole block which I can’t do, I can only heat in the general area....

Re: How to repair damage to a deck

I thought about stitching, I would have to farm that out. Whatever I used I figured if there where any low spots use an epoxy to smooth it out.

Re: No oil pressure on new build

Pull the sending unit and prime the pump from the top and that seem to solve it.
He actually had the car running and it still didn’t pull prime
Seems to be OK now

Re: 1cm

This is a valve from the mercury block, I guess the C stands for Canadian.
