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.

Re: Hand throttle notches

Keep in mind that they are spring loaded and can be pulled toward you to get some room to work with a file.

Re: loping engine?

Take it fully apart and make sure you can blow through every passage. Hit the flange of the carb and find the low spots. File until the whole surface is shiny. No low spots. New gaskets and try it...

Re: steering box

It’s installed between the two bushings and the lube goes between them. Some cars have this. I’m talking two tooth

Re: loping engine?

Grab your distributor cam and try to move it side to side. If that bushing is worn, the cam can float and cause hunting.

Re: Cold Weather Shifting

The lube is stiff and will stop the spinning gears quickly, so shift quicker and at lower speeds.

Re: Intake manifold getting hot

Old31, it does not bypass it, it just adds a known good condenser.

Re: Intake manifold getting hot

Take a different condenser and connect it to the passenger side of the coil and ground. See if the engine runs better. If it does, change the condenser. Easy to try.

Re: Valve Tool

Their are a lot of valve spring tools. Some work and some don’t. This one should work just fine. I usually borrow several and pick the one that works best.

Re: new B motor running issue

I assume you have sprayed the intake manifold joints with starter fluid while trying to start it and keep it running. Sure sounds like extra air is getting in past the carb.

Look real hard for an intake manifold leak. Get the old starter fluid out. Good luck.

Re: Steam cleaning engine/trans?

I have one of those and it could do nothing for me. Way too weak.
Can you rent to old big steam cleaners we had when I was a kid? That's what we need.
