Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

A lit cigarette will not ignite fumes or liquid, a spark or flame is required.

Re: Intake reinstall?

DD
That is what was taught in High School shop class in 1959. Seal gaskets only to the removable part. It does make life easier.

Re: FINALLY...First project in the "NEW" shop

Rockfla


I would double the ceiling joists and would cover with one inch plywood. Great storage place for engines, and large pieces.
Great looking shop.

Re: Carburetor Issues - School me

Hi Joe
I replaced the carburetor on my H engine with a 7HA carb off ebay.
Then a rebuild kit. Now it runs great.
I think the rebuild kit cost more than the carburetor did.

Re: Greasing

Large trucks and equipment very often you would need to lift up and let down all four corners to get pins and shafts to take grease.

Re: Truck based woody

Gary
Now is a chance to spend more time with the grandkids. Show them some about wood work and truck maintenance. Pick and choose which jobs you take on, and enjoy life.

Re: Help with transmission selection

Kirby
you can get a 12 bolt 2.41:1 third member from a 79 camero, etc. They work good with 350/350 combo. About 70 MPH at 2100 RPM.

Re: Help with transmission selection

I have never had the nerve to really "pour the coal" to my car. I have too much time and money in it and couldn't stand to break anything.



I call it Fear and common sense.
