Re: Original Grease Gun Rebuild

Did that gun work before it was taken apart? Mine is full of grease so maybe someone else knows your answer.

Re: Original Grease Gun Rebuild

I think there is some material that could simulate the plunger material and could be worked into a suitable part. maybe cork or soft plastic.

Re: Printable diagram for adjusting valve tappets

Does any good idea ever not get these same comments? If you would screen print this gauge on some tin, I'll bet you could sell them to all the Ford suppliers and make a mint!

Re: Radiator Paint

If you ca't get that, use lacquer. It is a very thin coat, where enamel leaves a relatively thick coating.

Trim that to 1" But it does sound like you have a bad clutch.

Re: clutch problem

If the car won't move with the pedal released you have a clutch that will not engage. Check the free play, or answer Bob's question and we can think some more.
