Re: Valve seats

Without knowing how much other work you plan on doing, my suggestion, if the motor is out, take to machine shop with one of the new valves and have the 3 angle seats done there. The 3 angle will give better sealing and flow.

Yes that is more then a bit too much! :o What is going on at the other end? Is the frame bent down under the firewall? Should be about what your other car is. Almost look like someone shortened the column housing to get more room between the seat and steering wheel.

Re: Fuel Tank Drain

At the top of the sediment bowl are flats for removing the whole thing, put a wrench on them to hold it.

You can use the early closed spool if you grind the lip off around the edge. The center sections/housings are the same except the early ones had a recess for the lip to fit into. Using bolts and lock washers would be no different then the later ones that were setup that way, BUT the threads are no l...

Once the tire is installed and inflated it would self lock anyway esp when installed on the wheel because the tire and tube would be pushing inward.

Click on the pencil and you can edit the title, handy to know so you can update the ad when you find one. :)
All Ford 21" wheels use the same rims, so if you do not have Ford wheels, we would need to know what brand they are to match. Are they Chevrolet or?
