Re: 600w leaking out of steering box

I used to use STP and I think it worked OK, but when a friend took it apart to put new gears in, the mess was awful. He is still trying to clean that mess up. Remember Dave???

Re: 600w leaking out of steering box

Grab your pitman arm and pull it toward you and away from you from the side of the car. If there is any movement in the sector shaft bushings, you must replace them. Make sure the pinch bolt is...

Re: 600w leaking out of steering box

There is a fix for the leak through the sector shaft bushings. An external o ring that works pretty good. Check the catalog.

Re: grounding distributor

Pull out you fuel line to the carb, I assume it’s a Zeinth, and make sure the end of the fuel line is not going in too far and hitting the filter screen. The ferrule should be right at the end of the...

Re: Spark Plug Condition

Here is a short video on how to clean them.
Yours look black and fuzzy. Time to clean them. Keep them clean and those plugs will last a very long time. Our plugs do foul and it is easy to clean...

Re: Would there be any interest in a programmable electronic points replacer?

The problem with getting away from standard is that when you break down on a tour, your buddies can’t help you. You better have a spare you can put on, or be able to fix it yourself. 8

Re: Surging at idle with spark where it should be

Look real hard for an intake air leak. Do the trick with starting fluid. Good luck.

Re: 31 Model A rear end seals

Those seals don't prevent the rear axle lube from getting to the drum, they redirect the grease from the rear bearing grease fitting out toward the rear bearing. If they are not there, you will pump...

Re: Overheating

If its an old radiator, then the tubes are probably plugged solid so nothing can get into the to clean them out. If not, and it overheated during a very short trip, it may be combustion gases...

Measure your toe-in before you take anything apart. Bet you don’t have any.

Re: Very slow/no cranking

Take some jumper cables and go from the battery to the starter and ground. Leave the standard cables in place. If it’s better, then you have resistance somewhere in your cables, or you have 12 volt...

Re: Shortened Pitman Arm

They are used a lot and they are fine. It does reduce the turning effort, but the turning radius goes up. I took mine off because I could not turn around like all the other cars when we had a...

Re: Need Picture of Cutaway Water Jacket

Best would be to figure out a way to make it a push through system instead of the suck through system.

Re: I wish I would have waited

If that starter was using four times the power, it would be glowing red hot. It only takes so much power to spin an engine. You can't make it use four times the power. The power used remains about...

Re: I wish I would have waited

For the same power, a 12 volt system will draw half the current. If you double the voltage, current is halved. Power (watts)=voltagexcurrent.

Re: Won't start

Sure sounds like your fuse looks good, but is not. Check it with an ohm meter or test light.

Re: Rear brakes.

You should put in new bushings for both shafts unless that has already been done. Very high load on the service brake shaft bushings.
