Re: 2.5 ohm ignition resistor

If running 12v on a 6v coil you could just stack a 50's ceramic voltage resistor first then run it through the stock resistor to coil. Early y blocks dizzys were 6 volts at 12v battery. The secondary...

Re: 36 Can't Stop The Oil Pan Drain Plug Drip

Holy poop. Use a crush ring as designed or some felt/plastic ring. Leave the jd weld and permex in the top shelf of the toolbox. As Bruce used to say flatheads leaked, to oil the chassis.

Re: lowest oil pressure for engine to survive

Re: King Pins Anyone in MN that can do them

Personally I'd use a reamer. Your really not setting the axle, it's the spindles inline with the axle bearings that matter. Most any machine shop would do it in an hour. Granted if they have time.

Re: Again?! this time juddering at a stop

At idle and a great vacuum, it might be in your "head". But whom knows. Maybe the front end is loose or... all guesses. How is your kingpins to steering.

Re: hurricane

Glad people are okay. Saw some limited stuff from drones. Heavy flooding and roof/building damage on the coast. Too early in the Hurricane season. But it's weather. As they say when in a foxhole......
