Wheel Balance with Dyna Beads

I wonder if lead shot from a shotgun shell would work, or maybe BB's (if they will fit) ? Seems like they'd be easy to get and easy to put in.

Re: Oil Pan baffle

That's exactly what I was thinking of. And you're right; for $6 why try to make one. Thanks for posting that.


BTW. I used a bolt that wouldn't actually thread in. It was a smaller diameter but...

Oil Pan baffle

I had to take my oil pan off because the threaded ring for the drain plug was spinning and not allowing the drain plug to come out. I've got to fix that, but I'm wondering how the oil pan baffle...

Re: Overheating cured by adding thermostat

It was definitely overheating when I ran it long enough to pump the water out the overflow tube and below the core. As I said, I could see it swirling around and going out when I ran the engine at...

Re: Check your fan blades

The saga continues on my fan blade story. Sometimes I do the stupidest things. It seems to get worse the older I get. This one is titled "Jumping to Conclusions."

Re: Check your fan blades

As it turns out I wasn't as blessed as I thought. I had no leak in the radiator after the incident. I even cut off the opposing blade on the broken 4 blade fan and drove the car to a cruise-in that...

Hub caps loose

Does anyone have a trick for tightening new hubcaps onto the wheels? I took a punch and hammered each individual tang on the inside of the wheel and they're still loose as goose.
