Re: Truck oil pan gasket - one inside & one outside?

Could you weld it with the pan still installed, or do you have to remove the pan from the engine? I am thinking removed due to the high heat or open flame of welding

Thumbs up Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

Glad you like it!
Good to know about the gaskets. I would like to get a complete set, especially if I am going to clean the underside of the intake as I have read would be a smart idea

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

It is more the safety of the whole thing, not getting good at it aspect. I am more worried about what order to shut valves off and turn on stuff, leaks, and stupid mistakes

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

Really, I will have to read that. Just read what you read and I think the answer that was given meant there was no rosebud tip included in this kit. I will call and get clarification tomorrow. The...
