Re: There's paint under there!!!

There is no permanent coating for rust. Rust is rust it'll keep going. You can rub it down and clear coat it. But it will bubble up through the clear in a few yrs.

You will continuously have to...

Re: caveat emptor

You take another rusted car with some interior chrome and put it on another car. (cas I'm probably missing your sarcasm intent) It's hard to say. But it's been repainted in my thought from the...

Re: caveat emptor

Must have taking some time putting the interior in.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Harbor Freight can be great. It'll either work or break the first time you use it.

Exactly why I said you would know better. Nor said it was the same. The only argumentative to my post is perceived maybe.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

David would know best. Being it's a momentary connection it might be okay unlike gauges. The pitch might be higher and it will add stress to the parts over time. I'm not sure about the internal parts...

Re: Head gasket question

Just a thought. The water travels through the block and heads at the openings made, the gasket, unless the holes in the gasket are smaller to restrict flow, won't do much. So it makes since....

Re: 59AB advice on "new" flathead

Re: Reviving a proper six

The flat six is a good engine. The later version the ohv 215/223 overhead was called the mileage maker to the flathead and yblock. Bullet proof dependable motors.

Cool Project.

Re: Stromberg Big 97 on a stock manifold?
