Re: 3.27 Gear without an Overdrive

My coupe with 3.78 gears and 6:1 head does pretty good on a long grade in high, but I donít think it would do so well with 3.27s. Getting up to speed from a stop would be even more leisurely, also.

Re: Remote Horn Blower?

I think it would work, except for the 10A max current. From reading the Q&A, it appears that the 12v needed by the relay comes from the AA sized 12v battery and the contacts for 6v can be isolated.

Re: Medal Roof

I thought it was because rolling metal that wide hadnít been advanced enough to be flat enough (no ripples.)

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Re: Wheel Lug Thread Chaser

You might want to use one of these or similar for such tasks. Dies cut away metal, these leave more metal there.

Re: Wheel Bearing Repacking Interval

I made a rookie mistake and filled my trailer hubs with grease. The grease expanded with heat, blew the seals, lost the grease, and ruined the axle. Never again!

Re: Rebuilding my generator...

Watching the ammeter bounce while you crank the engine also shows you that the points are opening and closing as desired.
