Re: Oil change process

You always want to drain the oil warm as it decreases viscosity and drains out better.

Re: 34 Radiator Leak - JB Weld

The solder gun may not be hot enough for some reason or the bwg wire was too thick.

Re: 35í-36í Water Pump - Pulley Removal

Thanks for the helpful advice. Wish I had a hydraulic press.

After rebuilding the water pump, is there a specific grease I should apply through the connection point?

Re: 1936 Ford flathead - is a fuel additive required
