Re: front spring bushings

I make my own bushing drivers. If you have access to a lathe, it's a simple tool to make. It's the kind of a first job we did early in basic Machine Shop. No heat, No chill. no drill or reamer . Just...

Re: embarassing question

I said my piece! I think Brent was the wrong guy to attack. I think upon reflection that the writer will realize this. I don't wish that this should go any farther. Let's forget about it and go on...

Re: Cupholder Dash Mount

I used a piece of sheet 18ga. I attached a piece of ash to the bottom. I had cut out a large hole for the cup. I made the sheet metal long enough to reach two of the screws that hold the dash rail!...

Re: Looking for help

Larry's advice is good! Anything to save pulling the engine! However, If you must, you must! Is the car in a garage now? If so , does the garage have an open ceiling? If so, can you put a short 4 X4 ...

Re: Looking for help

Welcome to the Barn! First of all, Why pull the engine just because it won't start? Do a compression test ! Is it getting gas? Does it have spark? It is common for the valves to stick. Here's a good...

Re: Model a vs b carburator

Re: Flywheel weight??

I think we had this discussion before, but I'll reiterate my point again. Ligthter FWs do not add HP, but they free it up and it goes to the wheels instead of being lost. If that is not clear,...
