Re: Synthetic Oil?

It's still rated a 20W oil hot. So 20psi at a fast idle doesn't seem too unusual. What I find amazing is almost no pressure dependence on temperature. My 64 & 05 vehicles show same behavior. ...

Re: Synthetic Oil?

My old 21-studder was a heavy drinker in the olden days. Went through 2 gallon cans of this premium labelled parafin wax about every 2K miles. But never needed changing and reasonably priced at less...

Re: hayden automotive 3647 adjustable thermostatic fan control

Re: Synthetic Oil?

I've switched to WalMart's 0W-20 full synthetic in my 21-studder 2 years ago. It had been running 5w-20 synblend since being re-done 10 years ago. Jack E/NJ

Re: How to repair damage to a deck

Re: hayden automotive 3647 adjustable thermostatic fan control

A dash switch that provides a ground path for the fan's ground wire is also useful. Snap-disc thermostats like Hayden's typically have unadjustable open(turn-off) deltas quite a bit below their...

Yeah. That makes more sense than trying to remove a stuck gasket with a saw or cutoff wheel. 8^) Jack E/NJ

Re: MOPAR PCV use?

Fuel pump stand filler cap. I only use the hose-barbed xler cap to entrain any blowby/vapors that might come out the stand cap into the air filter canister. No valve. Jack E/NJ

Re: How to repair damage to a deck

Agreed JBWeld should work fine. A bit more substantial fix might be to paint the gouge with a tinplating solution. Then drip soft solder to fill the void. Jack E/NJ

Re: New Flathead “Steaming” Exhaust

Agree with Kurt. If heads & deck mate well, I'd be tempted to use plain old composite gaskets & plenty of grease. 8^) Jack E/NJ

Re: Broken oil gallery plug casting

Back? Front? A few threads & thread sealer should be good. Maybe use JBWeld as sealer & buildup for strength? Or drill & tap for bigger plug? Jack E/NJ
