Re: Pin holes in oil pan

repaired a pan on my latest build with JB weld. I cleaned the surface well and let it completely dry. It holds great.

Re: Fakin a Merc !

Update:
The jumper cables were getting hot so I took the battery out of my 41 and hooked it to the solenoid on the stand. Turned the toggle switches and it turned over. Looks like bad grounding and...

Re: Banjo ID

JSeery,

Great point. As you can see there are no pads. It has the same "buggy spring" mounts that are on my 41 pickup. It also does not have any modifications for stability that I can see. After...

Re: stock dist with jr. isky cam
