Re: Half of a cotter pin in oil pan?

How long is the piece? If it's less than a quarter inch, you are probably OK..

Re: loping engine?

Take it fully apart and make sure you can blow through every passage. Hit the flange of the carb and find the low spots. File until the whole surface is shiny. No low spots. New gaskets and try it...

Re: steering box

It’s installed between the two bushings and the lube goes between them. Some cars have this. I’m talking two tooth

Re: loping engine?

Grab your distributor cam and try to move it side to side. If that bushing is worn, the cam can float and cause hunting.

Re: Cold Weather Shifting

The lube is stiff and will stop the spinning gears quickly, so shift quicker and at lower speeds.

Re: Intake manifold getting hot

Old31, it does not bypass it, it just adds a known good condenser.

Re: Intake manifold getting hot

Take a different condenser and connect it to the passenger side of the coil and ground. See if the engine runs better. If it does, change the condenser. Easy to try.

Re: Valve Tool

Their are a lot of valve spring tools. Some work and some don’t. This one should work just fine. I usually borrow several and pick the one that works best.

Re: Float-a-Motor rear mount

A lot of people don't use that rear mount. My shift lever jumped around so much I had to add one. If it is steady, try it with out it. If things jump around, you will have to quiet things with ...

Re: new B motor running issue

I assume you have sprayed the intake manifold joints with starter fluid while trying to start it and keep it running. Sure sounds like extra air is getting in past the carb.

Re: new B motor running issue

Look real hard for an intake manifold leak. Get the old starter fluid out. Good luck.

Re: Steam cleaning engine/trans?

I have one of those and it could do nothing for me. Way too weak.
Can you rent to old big steam cleaners we had when I was a kid? That's what we need.

Re: New floorboards,where does rubber seal go?

Caution. Don’t put anything down there that has a remote chance of sticking that gas pedal in the down position. Might ruin your whole day. I recommend adding a redundant throttle return spring at...

Re: Conventional oil and Synthetic oil

Whatever you use, be sure to change it often. Keep clean oil in there. If the cost makes you keep it in there too long, don’t use it.

Re: battery relocation

Don’t put it in the trunk or far away from starter. Way too much voltage drop unless you use a one inch diameter cable.

Try adjusting it first. Make that pedal engage a lot closer to the floor.

Re: Carb Screen

Just make sure your fuel line does not touch the screen. It will block flow.

Re: Carb Screen

I can’t imagine why you would not use the screen, but if your tank is clean, it won’t hurt anything leaving it out.
