Re: Harmonic Balancer

Pete:
I already have a dampener on the rear of my engine. Would I gain anything by putting one on the front as well?

Re: 30 Tudor Windlace question.

I have a complete windlace kit for my '31 CCPU, in a box that I bought from LB 5 or 6 years ago. It's still in the box only because I have never figured out how it is supposed to be installed. If...

Re: Can you help with this? Tool related

Google “3M Roloc Mandrel”. Came up with a lot of hits.

Back when I was still working, I bought them from industrial hardware store or aircraft supply houses.

Re: I Need Photos - Electric Windshield Wiper

Check out the electric wipers offered by Newport Engineering. They fit and work perfectly. That’s what I have on my ‘31 pickup.

Re: Rewiring . . . What would you do different?

Re: Windshield Wiper Conversion

My '31 Bud Cab Pickup came to me with a hand wiper. The rubber was completely rotted so I bought a replacement from one of the vendors. That didn't work either.
