Re: Head gasket?

Guten Abend Brent,


I didn't understand everything correctly because of the foreign language. But if a newly ground C-head still seeps a little past the composite seal, then a stronger torque...

Re: Head gasket?

Guten Abend lieber Dave.

If you retighten the Z-head screws repeatedly, do you only use the same torque or do you loosen every single screw a little beforehand?

Your copper spray irritates...

Re: Steering wheel paint

Hi Herb,

I used a two component primer. Then came the 2-component epoxy paint that is also used in this country for trucks. The result is still good after 1 year.

Re: Model A's & Airplanes

Yes Katy,

that's a Hugo Junkers "Tante Ju" 52. It is placed in Moenchengladbach and should be able - perhaps - to fly again in 2022.

Next picture is a Fokke Wulff "Stieglitz" (Goldfinch)....

Re: Anyone using a horn relay

Hi Elk,


yes, I have one too. The horn works much more better also in idle. Easy and unvisible to install.

Re: Fuel Line, Shut-Off Valve to Firewall: Why Made Of Hard Steel?

wrong / worn axle shims

Guten Abend!

About 3500 ml / <2 years ago I revised all the brakes. Since the rear brake drums were too loose on the axle cone, I used the thin spicer / cone / axle shim.
