Re: Ok, I've got a question for the Northerners....long.

If my dad was still around he would be the judge of that. He was a fine point judge of holding flashlights, I failed many light holding competitions. :eek:

I'm slowly becoming a fine point light...

Re: Cracked Block

So I took a grinder and ground off/out the mess the freshman welder made. Got back to the cracks and the new ones :mad:. Cleaned up a large area around that and slapped the JB Weld to it. I made sure...

Re: Using Ford Barn as an distraction

I wish ther was something I could do for any parent that's lost a child. I can't imagine what it must be like. I'm SO very very sorry for you. I will say a prayer for you and your family.

Re: 1950 vs Modern Quaker State Oil Comparison

The roads while I grew up were awful compared to today's roads and vehicles with more than 100,000 miles seemed to always be worn out. It's very common today to see vehicles with over 200 - 300,000...

Re: Waterpump rebuilt - Leakless of not?

If you don't want to rebuild it, this was recommended to me http://leaklessapumps.com/. I did purchase one and an aluminum fan from Snyders. I didn't get the heavy duty pump as mine has a generator...

Re: My "new" 1931 Phaeton

How exactly is the word officially pronounced? It's not a common word, atleast around my area and I've heard it said several different ways. Ways I had no idea someone wouldn't try to pronounce it. ...

Re: I am so happy......With my 1500W gear oil...

This covers it pretty well in my opinion. You can drive a vehicle that's hard for others to drive "UNTIL" they get used to it. You have to become intimate with whatever you are using to truly use it...

Re: Cracked Block

Werner, looking from my new perspective, I'd say the welder doesn't know what he's doing, he doesn't have a clue. I would have went with the lock stitch initially but thought the cost too much at the...

Re: Cracked Block

Well I took it to a welder and he told me it shouldn't be a problem as he was experienced in repairing cast. I believe he used a mig welder dedicated to flux core use. The Weld looked pretty good and...

Re: #1 plug question

Probably a stupid question but, what's the best way to check for side to side play in distributor? Use a tool to pry and watch for movement? Grab the shaft with your hand and move back and forth?

Re: Finding a parasitic draw

Mine was the horn. I knew something was drawing as it sparked when I'd hook the battery up. Lucked up and could feel warmth on the horn. I believe one wire was loose.

Good luck with your problem...

Re: Engine in my 1929 tudor sounds like it knocks
