Re: 32 spring bushings

Yes. You can look at the ends and see the rubber or the asbestos.

I agree with DavidG 100% that old stock with rubber is not a good choice for a car that will be driven.

Re: Yet another 36 pickup post

I really appreciate the steel bed. Not too many restored properly like that.
Kudos!

Re: 32 spring bushings

There's a reason why the engineers designed these to be a press fit. Without that proper fit, the bushings don't do what they need to do - namely, offer torsional twist to aid the return of the...

Re: 32 spindle bolts

It is as you suggest all in the interpretation. Yours and the correct interpretation.

In reality, there is no such thing as "alternative facts".

Re: '35 Radiator / water out the tube

I have NEVER found high flow pumps to make any difference in operating temperature in any vehicle that has been properly restored. Key word? Properly.
Also, as Tubman has wisely pointed out: MAKE...

Re: Calling Ol'Ron, calling Ol'Ron...

I could not agree with you more. Listen to the man!
Nothing like advice from a guy that has "been there and done that" more times than mere mortals such as myself can imagine.

Re: MiG help

If you buy the entire assembly (about $50) , you get tips. Plus the assembly is now of a more modern design should you need more parts in the future.
