Re: Helicoil pains

Thanks for the input guys. At least I know I'm not alone. Permatex did the trick. Put 50 miles on her today and no leak.

Helicoil pains

Looks like I goofed. After stripping the threads on one of the top flywheel housing bolt holes in the block I proceeded to drill and tap for a helicoil. I was careful to try and stop the drill from...

Re: Temp controls

LOL, that car looks familiar, and yes I did add a steering column bracket to it before taking it on the road. Even with the support it had a little wiggle that i didn't like. I had to disconnect...

Re: Bumper Question

I got prices of $400 per BAR in the tri state area! As in $400 x 6. The lowest quote was $300 per bar. I think I might send mine to Berts for replating but not sure how bad shipping both ways is...

Re: Which turn signal kit to use?

I'm thinking about using the control box from this kit with a momentary switch like Clydes under the dash and cloth wiring from one of the vendors. I have not heard anything about them though so I'm...

Re: Windshield Question

Really! I'll have to check that out. I just had mine apart last year and put the hinge together before screwing it to the header with a fight. I was dreading taking it back apart since I stripped...

Water inlet for temp gauge

I know the water outlet neck is the best place for the temp gauge but does any one run one of these threaded water inlets to hook up the temp gauge? I feel routing the tube from this would look a...

Re: Tubular Rivet Tool
