Re: The right way to use waterglass

"I know some will say not to use waterglass but I have before with good results." What the heck is "waterglass"? I know I use one when I want a drink of water, but I've never heard that term used and...

Re: Brake adjustment tool

What is meant by "the front/rear bias"? I have never heard that term and am curious. I pretty much use H. L. Chauvin's method. Thanks. Don/WI

Re: ubscrewed shift lever

In my original post (# 3) I suggested the possibility that the lower part may be made of a material that could be hardened to eliminated excessive wear. Even if that is not the reason for the three...

Re: ubscrewed shift lever

Who makes the repro lever that has a connector? What is the reason for the two parts? Is the bottom made of a hardened material so the sphere does not wear? If so, I would be interested in purchasing...

Re: transmission question

You are right Tom. I learned this the hard way. Ruined two o-rings before I realized what was happening. I beveled (chamfered) the holes and lubed the o-rings and no more ruined o-rings. I also used...

Thanks Terry. I did some searching and ended up with a few other Barners that said the same thing with no one posting a different angle. The one I was going to machine must have been warped. I will...

Mark, I do not mean that angle. I'm wanting to know if there is any angle other than 90 degrees between the mounting surface of the carburetor and the 2" width of the manifold mounting. Thanks for...

Re: Is this pitting on the block something to worry about?

In post #11, 30aadoodlebug said that the engine has NOT been pulled so the best advise I have seen is from Tom Wesenberg. Obviously the final determination must be made by the owner after sifting...
