Re: What's your "Go To" for a hard head?

Re: What's your "Go To" for a hard head?

33-34 Aluminum heads can be real stinkers about this . Yours is moving so tap it down and spray the studs with PB or whatever snake oil you prefer . Probably some buildup in the holes in the head...

Re: 1933 inner fender question?

Radiator mounting pads are level as you stated .

You need to check the level of the cowl .
