Re: RIP Jay Klehfoth

Very sad news. I was fortunate to get to know Jay and Barbara and tour with them years ago when we were members of the Dallas T club. My thoughts and prayers are with the family as well.

Today we warmed up -10 at 5am. The main roads and highways are clear today but the side streets are a slick ...

Check that the thimble the bulb mounts in for a good ground. I usually solder a wire to the thimble and connect to a direct ground.

Re: Warlord trans.

Ron,

The new Warfords are made by Layne Machine Works in Kansas city MO. Their phone number is 816-231-3268. I am under the impression that there are a couple of ratios available. I could be wrong. Call them and ask.

Re: Piston ring seating

If the throttle was closed when you did the test you will get low readings. The throttle and choke need to be wide open while doing the test.

Re: To coat or not to coat?

A new tank is about $170.00. About twice the cost of coating the tank that will fail some time down the line. If it was mine I would just buy a new tank. YMMV.

Re: Have you ever made a stupid mistake?

Well...I rebuilt a rear end on a T that I was restoring with all new parts including ring and pinion gears. It was many years later when the car was finished. I took it for its first drive without realizing that I had never added oil to the rear end. Dumb and costly!
