Re: Gas shutoff valve

I don't understand the thinking here. If rust flakes were to gather at the bottom of the tank, the home made filter would work just as well. The fuel would just enter the valve from above the rusty...

Re: Which service brake cross shaft bushing?

Anybody got a picture of woven bushes. I've never even heard of them.

All sorts, mostly the good Australian made ones.

Re: Which service brake cross shaft bushing?

I too have pondered this. I use the slit bronze bushes and grease them well on assembly with a grease containing some graphite. As there are no grease nipples on them and I don't think dismantling...

Re: Modern Points cross-reference

I've run modern points for years too and there is a supply in my workshop tht will see me out. I choose the vented type and consider them ultra reliable.

Fake eBay listing

If there is anything that gets me steamed, it's this kind of thing. Clearly, the seller is lying (in his description) so who would deal with him after he has established himself as such a person....

Re: Just Curious

My Tudor had Firestone tyres on it when I got it. At 45-50 mph, the front started to shake and by 55, it was bouncing all over the place dangerously. I'm not a real fan of firestones but after I...

Re: Lebaron Bonney is Bankrupt

I think (hope) their demise will create an opening for someone else to step in, not that they are much used here anyway. Nearly everybody I know who restores a car has the trim done piece by piece in...

Re: Forming the front upper corner after welding

It looks to me like there is a ton of bog in thee already. I'd start removing it till I was back to decent metal that is close to the right shape, then I'd look at what I need to replace. As others...

Re: Wheel Balance with Dyna Beads

I can't see why it would be. It certainly won't cause rust!

Re: F 150 OD trans

What are the ratios in the F150 coghouse? I wouldn't be interested unless top is about 26% O/D. I assume the T5 has a top gear that is an O/D. True/false?

Re: Color of the engine

Most of the advertisements for cars for sale like eBay, show a picture of the motor. The colour is not critical so if you match what you see in those pictures, you'll be near enough IMO.

Re: H&H Model A motor thrust bearing issue

I think we have different interpretations of a previous post. I took it to mean that it was important to put the car in neutral and take your foot off the clutch. (That's what I do.) I was referring...

Re: Coolant Debris Looks Like RTV

If a soluble oiil has been used in the cooling system, it is possible that the black crap in the filter is the insides of your hoses. Most of those oils attack the hose and soften them. As the hose...

Re: Pothole, now right only!?!

I'd start by putting the front axle on a pair of stands so the wheels are just off the ground and run an eye around everything looking for something bent. If nothing is obvious. If nothing seen, then...

Re: stuck transmission?

Agree with Mike. I think you put the top back on the gearbox with the selector forks in the wrong place.

I've done all that to all of my drivers only the springs are local. Better made and cheaper!

Re: H&H Model A motor thrust bearing issue

Agree completely. That's why I use the rear bearing for thrust. Using the centre main is asking for trouble IMO.

Woofa, I agree that the shockers sold by the vendors are too hard. I have them on a couple of cars. One is not too bad, the other, terrible. The first car I fitted telescopic shockers on was at the...
