Re: Damned if you do and..............

Re: removing oil sludge with syringe?

Re: window installation

You need to squeeze the channel narrower before installing the glass and/or use thicker glass bedding. The glass should install into channel snugly.

Re: Not for sure of what rearend on car

With the 2 adjusters it sounds like you may have Huck brakes. They were used on I believe 1936 thru 1950 Chevy and had enclosed drive shaft torque tube.

Re: Front tires cupping

All tires front and rear tend to cup due to braking. The rear tires however will wear more evenly because they have rotational force in both directions, they brake and drive which evens out the wear....

Holly/Zenith carb

We have a couple of Holly carbs that neither have the secondary well in them. The hole in the body is not threaded and is to small in diameter to install one. Does the Holly not use the secondary...

Re: Front axle problem

Looks like early AR style grease baffle that is on backwards with the wire spacer to allow newer non AR style hubs to be used. Without spacing out the hub it would rub on the nuts. I recently...

Re: Changing from early brake drums to late drums

It looks like the grease baffles are different. The new hub does not fit inside the old style grease baffle, it doesn't allow the drum/hub to go all the way on. The newer style must have a larger...

Re: Recieved title and sold it

I think Tom is correct around about 1-1/2 times value. The bond as it is called is basically an insurance policy payable to the state if problems arise. If there are no issues the only money moving...

Re: Turning a brake drum

I thought they should probably be installed, I was hoping to at least check if it is round then go from there. I will install races and spin it to check if it's out of round first.
Thanks
