Re: Odd-ball 30 Pickup......

There were many of these done back in the day, so I really don't think this is a modern creation. My godfather had one. Wish I could have gotten it, but he didn't want to sell it to me because the...

Re: sandoz clock repair ??

Is it a stem wind? I am guessing it is a newer item, if so, any good watch repair shop should be able to service it. I have one out of my great aunts 36. It has a pull cord wind. I need to have it...

Re: Water Tempature Reading

LOL that is why he was a supervisor! Incompetent people seem to rise to higher levels of management to boss those that actually know what they are doing.

Re: Undercoating would like your comments.

Had been working on a coupe that had "EVERYTHING", except the running gear, on the underside even in the the trunk behind the curved panel front to back undercoated. What a pain in the A$$!

Re: What the H??? My new bakelite upper distributor body/shell is misaligned??

I think it might be time for some photos of what you are working with. Could this be an aftermarket distributor or can you confirm that this is a Ford distributor casting? I do not recall having to...

Re: What the H??? My new bakelite upper distributor body/shell is misaligned??

That was in the back of my mind. Missing pin and the hold down bolt is keeping from turning. If that is the case the groove might be wallowed out from over tightening. I have known at least one case,...

Re: What the H??? My new bakelite upper distributor body/shell is misaligned??

Re: Torque spec for spark plugs?

The length of the original wrench would get you more like 45-50 FPs if you pulled them real tight. They don't need to be that tight. Just snugged down so they don't leak past the sealing washers.

Re: Steering arms

The ones Snyders sells; are the type that the old ball is milled off and new ball pressed on the stub. What their current supply is, you would have to call them.
