Re: Black and Decker Valve refacer

Howdy boys, I was just given one. WOO HOO! Already used it, but it needs to be taken apart and cleaned up pretty bad. And as Kurt in NJ says, I wouldn't stand in water when using it! I think I'll...

Re: Firewall welding

Howdy boys, wow, great response on this topic. Yeah, it did waver a touch, but, WTH, why not learn something along the way to my question. Like I said, I will leave it up to the owner to decide...

Re: Firewall welding

Thanks guys, talked to my body man yesterday, he recommended the panel adhesive. Says it's pretty tough stuff. I'm going to leave it up to the owner. Just needed some suggestions for him. Thanks...

Re: Firewall welding

1955cj5, sounds like this might work, since you've had no issues with it. I could pull the tank, but this sounds easier. How long has it been in place? I'm not familiar with panel adhesive. I'll...

Firewall welding

Howdy boys, another question, if I may. What are your experiences with welding up the cracked firewall at the hood rod bracket? Yes, you're correct! It is very close to the gas tank! So, I'm a...

Re: valve spring tension

Ok guys, now we're getting somewhere. Thank you Mr. Nelson! It looks to me that, 40# on my spring checker, at 2.5 inches, is where I want to be. And thanks to you also, D. J. and Alexiskai, I will...

Re: valve spring tension

Thanks D.J. No. 2 in your answer is a bit confusing to me. What am I measuring? I do have a "spring checker". That's why I know the springs I have are 40lbs at 2.5" compression. Again, my...

valve spring tension

Howdy boys, I have a question for you "Experts"! In Les' book, he states valve spring tension should be 60lbs (+/-3) at 2.5" compression. At 2.75" compression it should be 36lbs. After speaking...

Model A engine mounted compressor

Howdy boys, just wondering if any of you have mounted a small compressor on your engine? I mounted a truck compressor on my F250 many years ago, and it was very handy at times, having compressed...

Re: '39 trans to '37 V8?

Great response from you guys! I am hoping to put the V8 on a Model A frame, and use as much "stock" stuff that I can, for those years. And yes, I'd like to use the mechanical brakes also. I know,...

'39 trans to '37 V8?

Howdy boys, I'm wondering if a '39 trans would bolt up to a '37 V8? Not a V8 guy, so I'm lost on this subject. Thanks.

Re: Reamers

Boise is 200 miles from Pendleton, a little far to do a small ream job. I bought a hone that fits in my drill press, which works quite well, however, it takes a bit to set it up. And often, the...

Re: Reamers

Napa used to have a shop, but they are no longer in business in Pendleton. Didn't know about Les Schwab, although I doubt they do it, in Pendleton anyway. I hate having someone do something I am...

Re: Reamers

Thanks for the advice Brent, however, automotive machines shops just don't exist here in Eastern Oregon as they did 30+ years ago. I've learned, unfortunately, that it's less time consuming to buy...

Re: Reamers

Tried the vendors, they have some, but not all. Quite expensive too. Tried some adjustables, didn't get along with them very well. Somebody has to have the correct sizes, that's all I want, so I...

Re: 32 BB 4 cyl. rear motor mount.

Re: 32 BB 4 cyl. rear motor mount.

Yes, I have this piece. Is this considered the rear motor mount? If it is, then the mount attachments on each side of the clutch housing must be for the cars and comm. units? The truck didn't have...

32 BB 4 cyl. rear motor mount.
