Re: Speedometer Lubrication

It is great to bring these helpful topics up to the top again. I had not heard of a lube hole on the speedometer before. Now I have to see if the 37 speedometer has a similar access hole.

Re: 1940 frame patch pieces

Re: KR Wilson axle stand specs questions

I was thinking you could make a table top out of some old barn wood and it would make a great work bench, when it didn't have a rear axle in its jaws.

Re: 1933 essex terraplane. John Dillinger's favorite car

I visited...

Re: New House For The New Year-Flathead Powered

I liked it until I saw the Chev hood for the porch. I wouldn't want to drive that in a crosswind, though it sure is a unique creation.

Re: Vacuum port

Re: 34 ford woodgrain

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

I like the photo Alanwoodieman posted of his dad in post #32 showing him measuring engine speed with a handheld gauge and the load scale in the background. Probably smoking a Camel or Lucky Strike.

Re: Headlight/Turn Signal Question

I saw the movie yesterday and enjoyed it very much. I loved the cars in the movie, Cobras and others, including the '63 Country Squire. Very entertaining movie.

Re: 8BA oil direction

I don't think it is a good idea to use worm hose clamps on a pressurized oil line. You are one clamp failure away from a toasted engine or worse.
