Re: Axle shipped from New Orleans to Los Angeles

Look for a freight forwarder in your area. he can make a connection with various freight companies (or a independent operator) to get your package to its destination.

Re: Thunderbird fender skirts

I did what dmsfrr mentioned. First I used weatherstrip cement to hold it on and then used staples. I made the staples out of SS wire. I little tedious to make the staples, but it is working out.

Re: '54 Y-Block push rods

The problem with the TBlock forum is spammers. Because of this, you have to go directly to the moderator (Ted) to become a member.

Re: Valve adjustment on 312

I think backing off all the valves is not the way to go. You want to see where the valves are (open or closed) so you can set them. I basically use Craig's method and it always works for me.

Re: engine degreasing/fuel pump Q

Original pumps were AC. These should be rebuildable. Other brands may not be.

Re: Help getting MC off

That usually means that the bolt is "welded " to the nut via heavy rust. If you can heat it up you may be able to get the bolt to turn. Or grind down the bolt head.
