Re: Another rumble seat question

No plywood should be in the rumble-seat area (either on the floor, or in the seats themselves). When I replace my standard trunk with a rumble-seat (20 years ago), the floor panels and seat frames...

Re: Cylinder leak down test

Re: Child Safety

Re: Sometimes I get tired of it

Adding 'heat' to rusted nuts after using 'concoctions' and then letting sit for a spell greatly improves results (expansion factor).

Re: what category

When you say 4-C OHC are you referring to 'after market head' mounted on a Model A block? What carburation does the car have? With 'all' the upgrades you speak of it would seem to fit a 'street rod'...

Re: Carb leak ?

It is the valve alright, but you can also check that the float is bent to the right position. I always turned mine off when it was parked in the garage. Now using a Weber and is not an issue.

Re: Remote battery terminals

That's what I finally figured out to do. Use the starter nut and ground to engine. Still, 4X4's set-up looks nice and easy.

Re: Head Gasket

'29er' seems to have covered most everything I could think of and more. Senior Members have those years of experience that cannot be gained any other way.
