Re: Help me identify engine noise?

I had a similar noise, it was the springs or the plate of the front motor mount where it sits on the crossmember. A little oil shut it right up.

Re: HF infrared gun reviews

NO, you need a probe type thermometer for that, as you need to read the temperature INSIDE the meat.

Re: Gas Aspiration Problem?

If the pin is in the dimple and the #1 piston is down, it sounds like the mesh of the timing gears is incorrect. To verify you will have to pull the timing gear cover.

Re: Hinge pins

How about trying a pin punch type fitting in an air chisel gun?
Instead of WD40 try using Kroil or the acetone/atf mix.

Re: Electrical Problem?

Does the car have the foot push starter switch? Or does it have/use a solenoid?

FWIW, a Model A engine can be cranked over w/the starter or by using the hand crank.

I would suspect that the oil level is too high in the tranny, causing the error code.

I just checked an original that I have in the shop, thread is 3/4-16 NF, the lockwasher is missing but IIRC it is an internal star washer.
