Re: Banjo wheel repair

Yes if it was mine. Then google search keywords banjo steering wheel restoration and pick somebody. It's gonna cost. But it sure is pretty. But pretty high maintenance too.

Re: Banjo wheel repair

Don't make any hard turns. When one breaks, the rest can fail like falling dominoes and distort the rim.

Re: 50 psi oil pressure gauge

>>>Penrite 20W60>>>


If you're really getting 100psi cold at 15*C or about 60*F, it's not acting like a 20W60. It's acting more like a 60W60 single weight. If that's the case, you're pumping...

Yep, if it were mine & if I cared about looks, I'd fake it with glue and an electric pump hidden away somewhere. 8^)

If it's only a drop or so a minute, a radiator sealant might be enough to get you by for a while.

Re: Water Pump Install

Plenty of wheel bearing grease on the gasket surfaces. Also helps to smear some on the inside of the hose and its fittings

How about giving one of them a few oil squirts to see what happens?
