Re: Built a louver press

We made the top die and the bottom is just a piece of rubber it presses up against. You need to machine a pocket for it. I made the dies myself except for the final shaping. I'm not a sculptor or...

Re: How to make a copy of a post

A few years back I learned about the snipping tool. Pretty convenient as you outline whatever you want to save that you see on your screen.

I volunteer at a friend's shop - Wray Schelien Pro Shaper Metal a few days a week to get out and learn some new skills. We built - or overbuilt - this louver press. Pretty much all of it is from...

Re: It is getting harder to find basic parts at the auto parts stores anymore

Few years ago I needed something at the Harley dealer so while I was there figured I'd get a piece of 1/4 inch fuel line for yhr lawn mower. Not an inch of the stuff in the place.

Re: BULLETT Mustang sold today at Mecum auction for:

This car has so much provenance it is not funny. More has been written about this car than any other, partly because no one knew where it was. Remember in 1974 this was at best a 1000 dollar car. ...

Re: torque for master cylinder bolt

The other thing that is easy to break is the brass fitting when screwing in the brake light switch. I had a hell of a time sealing the one on my 49. Never thought to anneal them first.

Re: 8BA aluminum timing cover

I'm not sure about the timing difference but pulley diameter will make no difference. The truck hole might be retarded a bit for heavy loads but then again the car heads had higher compression so...

Re: I just got scammed! Be careful!

I think I've heard about this guy. He vanishes when you say you have a friend close by who can pick up the part and pay cash.

Re: Tyree Harris wiring

Any wire can handle any voltage. Voltage is rated by insulation and wire size determines amps. I bet that wire insulation is good to 400 volts.

Re: 8ba oil pressure sending unit question

Put it on it's side and check with an ohmmeter it is getting grounded. Add pressure with an air hose to see if it will work. Lacking an ohmmeter you can connect it to your gauge and see if it works...

Re: 49 rear end

Agree. Mark the location of the nut in reference to the pinion by scratching a line across both. Tighten until the scratch marks line up.

Re: Bubba distributor skips a beat ????

In all fairness the wire may have been tucked up further when the customer installed the cap. The cap needs to be off to install the distributor. An honest mistake and as stated above routing it...

Re: Help to identify landau irons please

Re: Help to identify landau irons please

I assume they are folding. If they are Model A cabriolet the 29-31 fold almost equally in half. The later 31 has a longer lower section.

Re: steering loose/sloppy

Re: Never rent your car to the studios

Tell them it's just money any their insurance company should cover it. When you rent a car thay make sure you return it in the same condition or else you pay. You need to get stuff in writing.
