Re: Cap and Comp Jet Helicoil repair

I suggested tinning the jet threads, because I can't imagine getting in there to repair what is left. You wouldn't need much for threads to hold the jet if it's tinned.

Re: Cap and Comp Jet Helicoil repair

If the goal is a good fitting jet, i would tin the threads of the jet carefully with 50/50 solder.
Just don't tighten it too much.

Re: My 29 V-8

I'd be interested in hearing more about how you tackled the problems along the way. Exhaust, engine mounts, radiator to firewall space, steering box, fan, etc, etc.

Re: Revising gear box

You didn't mention the main shaft as a replaced component. What did you observe as to fit between an old main shaft and new replacement gears?

Re: new B motor running issue

Is the proper gas cap (vented) being used. If it's the cap, it would start easily, but run for a very short period before dying.
