Re: Help, Paint Application Problems

The DX330 is just a solvent and if dried won't be the problem.

Re: Help, Paint Application Problems

Look up fisheye. Maybe your rags were contaminated. I like to do a final wash with TSP and water before painting.

Re: 1924 Model TT

Take it for a nice long drive and also see what other Ts you can get for $7,000 - $10,000. I don't think the cab and bed are original.

Re: 1932 model B pickup truck light and horn not working

Before doing anything else make sure the wire bail is holding the switch body tightly in place.

Re: 7-tooth column leaking post-rebuild

Use some solvent or BrakeKleen and get the parts good and dry. that will really help in locating the source of leakage.

How about a photo out of the box so we can see the parts better?

Re: Engine Oil consumption

Is your engine using it or losing it? Are there clouds following you as you drive? When you add oil do you stop when it reads full on the dip-stick?

Re: Marvel's Mystery Oil

Re: towing to start a 1917 T

Don't pull the front axle out of it. If you do make sure it is on video, cause you might recoup the repair bills. Get a bunch of friends for a push party. Our club push started one once!

Re: towing to start a 1917 T

If the coils are working I would try a shot of starting fluid first before working on any thing else.

Re: New Tires...going just a little crazy...

The liners come at a low price. If the rims have any internal rust pits they can save you a flat.

Re: New Tires...going just a little crazy...

The metal stems can be reused as well as the tubes if you want to reuse them. Some new tubes are worse than the old ones. The rim liners are inexpensive. Summit has good pricing and shipping costs.

Re: Totaly "Restored" 1st Sport Coupe sold in San Francisco

Kind of like my house. It was built with 2600 square feet an 1 bedroom with 2 baths. I have since remodeled some daylight basement area into another bed & bath.

Re: Timing problem on B

Time it with the pin. it will find the indent before you get to TDC, it is a B motor. set the octane selector to 0 and set the point gap before setting the timing.

Re: Water pump ?

If a passage that should be open is blocked it was a poor rebuild.

Re: stained door panels

Cloth traditionally is dyed to change/refresh color. There are some color dyes in spray cans. Maybe just a good cleaning and living with the color, your choice.
