Re: Found something interesting?

I have an engine in my 25rpu that was rebuilt when I got it. Before I ran it I took the oil inspection pan off to install dippers, if they weren't already. Three heavy rods and one regular rod with some flat washers making up the difference in weight. I... installed the dippers and put it back toget...

Scott, while you are at it look the fan over closely. They crack close to the screw holes. I threw a blade on my race car and luckily it didn't get the radiator. On examination, all of the blades were cracked.

Removeable ear on transmission bands

Re: Why do I keep wearing tires out?

I would guess it is a tow in-out, problem, your car is probably heaver on the driver side causing it to track better causing the other tire to do most of the skidding. Jack the tires off the ground and mark them while spinning them, this will give you a true alignment line regardless of wobble. Set ...

You can set Loc-tite by heating it. I have used it on crusher shafts with .063 slop with great success.

Re: Paintings that aren't Model Ts

Rich , I just love your paintings. The subjects and how you capture and deplict them (it that is even a word) is simplicity marvelous. Here is something I put together for my wife Marilyn. It was for her 60th birthday this last February 29th. Thank you so much for sharing. 222B03BB-73C7-4962-8B77-44...

Re: Way OT, but still older...93 Toyota Supra upgrade. Super Zoom Zoom !!

I am looking forward to more coverage . I am concerned about an old engine with that much added stress. I turbocharged a stock Corvair engine in my sand rail many years ago. One of the problems was crank case pressure. I could't keep oil in it. I finally put two 3/4" breather hoses from the valve co...

Re: Hard to believe

Great story Wayne, what year do you think that was, early forties? I did a repair that still amazes me. My father an I had purchased a Austen Western small rubber tired crane that was broke down.

Re: Intake manifold leak

I like the gland and copper rings the best , It probably needs adjusting or just tightening. Sometimes you can just give them a wrap with a hammer and tighten them a little more to fix this type of problem. Also I use silicone to hold all the pieces in place and to help seal things while assembling....

Fans

Check your fans. This one was making a rattling noise that I suspected had something to do with the fan a week before it threw the blade. I broke the opposite one off to get back home. New fans are only $12.50. Some how it didn't hurt anything.

Re: LOL HA HA HA HA HA "take a breath" LOL HA HA HA HA HA

I figure that this must have been his first truck and he is selling it to up-grade. Probably put together from mostly nothing by someone very young. Mom and Dad was going to junk it out but he still see's some value to his artistic attempt at his first truck. Father and son project?
