I buy big tubes and they last until I get the last smidgen out. I have a lot of powder coating done, so I have these silicone plugs of many different sizes. Insert one of these small ones into the end of an open tube, and it’ll never get air to it to go off. I push them in easily about an inch.

Re: Carburetor to manifold gasket material

I’ve always wondered why these were used originally. FoMoCo was the pinnacle of K.I.S.S. There must have been a good reason back then, otherwise they would have punched out paper gaskets. I’ve given these out as gifts for years, but just enough for me remain here. 5814738D-0F2B-4341-AEC1-040D92E89DF...

Thanks Keith. I have corrected the origin ad. Guess I’m used to eyeballing pipe threads, but not miniature pipe threads.

Re: Real or Repro. ??? 1909 - 1911 two piece brass timer

Don’t forget, desirable parts like these had been started to be reproduced in the 1950s. That makes them 70+- years old now. To my eye, the stamping looks a little “soft” and my guess it’s an early remade part. I’d embrace it as a nice piece, and enjoy using it.

Re: Stamping a new serial on a blank engine block.

Stamped blocks being uniform would be a dead giveaway that they’ve been altered. There were devices back then that could have done that automatically. I would guess they debated whether cost effective compared to an individual man doing it all day long. That would be another brutal job there! Anothe...
