Re: Head Bolt Torque-Hot or Cold?

The condition of the studs and nuts is more important. New American made studs and nuts are a must. Then hot warm or cold is much less important.

Re: Cracked Block

A (good) welder can fix that crack. Amateurs usually cannot.

Re: Update on transmission plug

It is not a good idea to use STP or Lucas. The high speed gears will fling it out onto the housing. That’s where it stays effectively reducing the amount of oil in the transmission. Stay with 600W...

Re: Gas Tank Cleaning by Cutting Open

What’s the bug deal? I have done several. High speed cutter wheel along the seam. Clean or sand blast and take it to a good welder. Maybe 50 bucks.
