Re: Is it 6 Volt or not?

If the battery is 6V odds are it is all 6V and that is the reason the 12V headlights don't work. 6V battery will have three filler holes.

Re: Removing locking hubcaps, without key (1932)

If you can get to the back side, which is probably impossible, you may be able to work from there. You have three fingers holding the cap on.

Your best bet is to find a key blank that will fit,...

Re: Oil filter add to 36 lb?

Plumb it as original, as suggested by Terry Ohio. It sounds like you have a nice old original survivor. The oil filters back in the day weren't all that efficient in the first place. Just change oil...

Re: 97 carb hesitation

I'll second the nomination of Charlie NY to solve your problems for you. He just did my carb and fuel pump. Everything is top notch now. I have an electric fuel pump I used to use for priming, but no...

Re: nasty odor

You should be able to push the fan belt down about one inch between the pumps and fan. Over tighten and wear out a pump real fast.

The smell was probably coming from the fan belt slipping on the...

Re: nasty odor

If the engine continues to run long enough for it to overheat, it ain't the fuel pump.

What symptoms do you notice that leads you to believe it is overheating?

Re: 1936 fuel sender access

There should be an access hole to the sender in the floorboard, just over the sender. There will be a cover over the hole that is held down by a screw. Look again.

Re: Banjo wheel repair

I had a couple of broken spokes welded by a very experienced stainless steel welder. Its a PITA to repair one of these banjo wheels, but it can be done. Use PC7 to repair the outer rim.
