Re: Stock shock links VS Dog Bone???

Dog bones wear out the rubbers all the time. They’re easy to change out though.

Re: Bad Case of the White Smoke

I think you need to do the compression test, but the best way would be to pull the head again and borrow a block tester. The head, you can use a magnetic crack tester.

Re: oil movement

All the oil goes into the valve gallery behind the carb, directly from the pump. If you had no oil there, everything would seize.

Re: Found this in the oil pan UPDATE

I’m pretty sure it’s a wrist pin lock. I bought a V8 that was knocking after a rebuild, and the builder told the owner” it’s not a Lexus” so he drove it from Washington to Arizona and back. I bought...

I don’t...

Re: Model A manifold on '29 pickup

I got tired of pulling them out of the muffler, and haven’t used them in years!

Re: Hand crank

Your frame is bent. Look underneath at the front engine mount yoke bolt, where it comes through the front cross member. I wager it will not be centered. Pretty common.
How do your hood and doors fit?

Re: What generator is this?

Not really interested in worth. Just wanted to now what it was. So is switching to an alternator becoming prevalent with flatheads.? It certainly is with model A’s. Just curious if that’s a trend.

Re: B carburetor leak

If your main and cap jets ( the two sticking up in the middle of the carb) don’t have a concave tip, then capillary action will cause them to leak. By the way, you didn’t say when it leaked.? When...

Re: Exhaust manifold glands

I don’t use them anymore. I also don’t have a manifold gasket leak problem. So I think it’s a waste of time. IMO
