Re: Model A Gauges

Re: Removing timing gear nut

You’re probably right about the rag. The clamps sound like a good way to go. Some of us old guys who have been doing this for 50+ years have trouble adapting to newer methods.

Re: Removing timing gear nut

Put a long pipe over your wrench handle for more torque. Put in first or reverse gear. Set your parking brake. Stuff a large heavy rag, like an old bath towel, between the gear and the pan to help...

Re: Newer engine internals

Put those up in the Swap Meet section. Somebody will take them if the price is right. Or just sell them for the cost of shipping.
