Re: Spindle Arm Nut

You have the wrong nut(s) installed. They should be low profile with a step on the back side to go over the boss that keeps the spindle from turning. That may be part of the problem, yours are too...

Re: Painting Model A/AA Hubs and Backing Plates

We have been using the "VHT brake caliper" paint on the drums for some time. It covers good but not a thick paint. For the rear end and chassis we use, think it is same brand or similar, which is not...

Re: Need to move front spring across

If it is locked in there that tight, needs a good cleaning anyway. Would be a good time to clean and lube the spring leafs. Bumper jack sounds like a great way to get really hurt. Get the frame...

Re: rumble seat ins & outs

We had a customer that stands well over 6 foot and around 280, he got in and out of a rumble seat. No room for anyone else but he did it! :)

Re: Synthetic 680

I have not noticed any foaming with the 600 we get from Snyder's. I have used other brands that did. Make sure the vent hole on the shift tower is open.

Re: Oil In My Water

There is no where that the stud holes would come into contact with oil in the pan to wick up. Now if someone dumped a lot of oil in the adjacent cylinder and there was a bad gasket in that area, then...

Re: Oil In My Water

There is no oil in those locations all studs would end in the water jacket if they were open to same, but they are not (normally). Keep looking.

Re: Model T Sparkplugs

Unless you have sealing washers with the cores or can find bodies with good ones in them..well lets just say there is more to putting plugs together then just installing new cores.

Re: Oil In My Water

Re: Model A intake on a Model T

You can use the 3 in one T copper faced gaskets and don't need the plate. The nice thing about the plate is that you can fit gland rings on both sides, but lots of people have done it without the...

Re: Oil In My Water

4 weeks wouldn't hardly be any time in the car restoration world. :) While not impossible, it is kinda hard to get oil into the cooling system without being put there, water in the oil not so hard.

Re: Trans oil leaking from speedo housing

Did you check at the fill plug hole for proper level? Yes there is a gasket between the speeo turtle and tube. When was the last time you added grease to the U-joint housing?

Re: Rear main tube?

Pull the oil fill tube and run the scope in there. Don't have to lay on your back under the car nor drain the oil. Plus it is a bigger hole to work thru. Don't forget, there are the baffles that...

Re: Bench testing coils....

The tester is only going to tell you that the windings are good. They need to be setup for proper am draw (1.2 to 1.4 amps).
