Re: True Fire Ignition

I agree that Mike's products have a great reputation and you won't likely be disappointed if you use them. And, having said that, I won't suggest that you use original equipment if you're not inclined. And I won't engage in childish name calling if you were to use modern technology. Each person's ch...

Re: Oil petcock help!

pull hard while unscrewing...it will come out
If it is not coming out easily, which it isn't, that means there are threads left in the pan to some extent.

Your choice in adhesives/epoxies once it's out, though you may find that a new petcock and fuel resistant teflon tape will work just fine.

that really IS a nice job of it. It never occured to me what one would have to go through to make a cut-off have a top. Well done.

Re: Backordered NH Float Valve Install tools available - Limited Supply

Last call to buy
There is no point bumping over the myriad of ads that are posted
After July 4, they will be available only as an option when buying Full Flow Float Valves, and not by themselves.

Please email me directly if you are interested

Re: Getting Rattles Back On The Road

removing .002 from 1 and 3 area will open that gap around the 2:00 area up and SHOULD reduce bottom 8"00 area a little and you would be golden.

Re: Vaporizer Question - bowel vent leak

Mike one other thing that happens, is that the actual cast iron seat machined into the carb body can be rough from abuse or old rust, as well as excessive pitting or porosity. The float valve may seal like a Zip-Loc but fuel still weeps past the hard red fiber washer between the valve body and the c...

Re: About to buy tires - are recent vintage Riversides holding up well?

RV they come with the "wrong" metal stems vulcanized very nicely into the tube. They worked great on my friend's Torpedo, and of course take the Repro nuts/hardware. I've done a lot of study of these things, Smith and Jelf being among the two best at unraveling it for me. I've even sleuthed out all ...

Not so common here but I understand that they are just a fabulous lathe and absolutely perfectly suited to the work you do. I think you made a great score to ...

Re: About to buy tires - are recent vintage Riversides holding up well?

Steve interesting that you mention the Hartford tubes. I really like those things, myself. I had to change 4 tires for a friend on his Torpedo and he needed all 4 new tubes. I was quite pleased with the Hardfords and he has had nothing but success. In fact I just specified one to a supplier the othe...

Re: New Pinion Gear With Non Consistent Taper Bore

From the pictures, it appears that the inside face of the new gear may be a bit inset, or thinner, compared to the old gears. If this is the case, then I would expect the smaller ID of the new gear to measure larger as it is further up the taper. The test for this would be to measure the thickness o...
