Re: 12 year old Coker tires, still ok?

I bought 4 DB Auburn Premium about a year ago. Took a couple weeks to get them. I was surprised the tires were "Made in Thailand".

Re: Chrome Shop Recommendations

If you want nice chrome (not show chrome) I used Sandy's Bumper Mart in Syracuse. https://sandysbumpermart.com/. Reasonably priced.

Re: Gosfast Gary from NY?

I saw it mentioned on another forum. Really nice guy. Offered me help, a few years ago, with an engine problem I had. He will be missed.

Re: Hagerty insurance ?

It's been my experience that the big ins. companies become the middle man and have a smaller classic car ins co. do the insuring. Therefore more expensive.

Pressure Sealing A Block

Saw this on H&H Facebook page. It's news to me. Maybe others have heard of it. "H&H Flatheads:
its a cast iron resin heated up to 180 degrees and pumped through the block under pressure."

Re: Flathead crank pulley questions

I can't say off hand. From what I remember it was just enough to clear the distributor. I can try to get a measurement tomorrow. I think there was a raised area on the pulley that I machined off.

Re: Flathead crank pulley questions

I have a crab on my '51 Merc engine. I dug up a photo from 10-15 yrs ago. I machined the OD of the pulley to clear. It wasn't a stamped pulley.

Re: Walker 32 radiator. Water neck openings why so small?

I have the same on my Walker. Had to put a sleeve in the hose to get down to that size. A piece of another smaller hose.

Re: Bad Speedometer cable or...

I would say it has to do with the cable. Lubing will most likely help. Or needs replacing, if it's like a regular speedo cable.
