Re: engine rebuilder near Redding California

As I said and to be very clear, my comment is not about torque-plate honing as a necessity as much as a gauge of the shop's expertise in flatheads. If the shop has enough experience building stock...

Re: New Paypal fees. Be careful, folks

I'm not getting charged any of the fees people are discussing here. If anyone is getting charged fees for sending or receiving money using the "to a friend/family option," it's because the money is...

Re: startup old engine

Checking static timing is never a bad idea and will not do any harm if done properly. If the OP can't check timing properly, he shouldn't be fooling with trying to start the engine and hire a...

Re: engine rebuilder near Redding California

If the shop doesn't have a flathead torque plate or cannot mill one up for the build, I certainly wouldn't expect them to know how to grind the valves nor trust them to do so. If they are a serious...

Re: engine rebuilder near Redding California

I second building it yourself. Modifying and building engines and transmissions are some of the most fun things about cars/trucks and bring a sense of accomplishment and pride driving down the road...

Re: startup old engine

Along with what others have said,

Oil
Ensure you are either using a conventional ZDDP break-in oil or a conventional oil with a ZDDP additive if it's a flat-tappet cam.

As rockfla suggests,...

Re: GM 1 WIRE alternator

Generic calculators like that one are very inaccurate. What, exactly, is included in a "normal" vehicle or a "custom" vehicle, and what are the amp ratings for those components? The generic...

Re: GM 1 WIRE alternator

Factories notoriously undersized their charging systems to save money. The savings from less feet of copper in the generator/alternator and in wire gauge adds up quickly. So long as the battery,...

Re: GM 1 WIRE alternator

As with others, I'd go with a 10SI case one-wire. One-wires have been around a long time, and you should be able to find one almost as easily as a three-wire if you're on the road and break...

Re: oil price.

As V8Coopman said. Essentially, and this is very boiled down, ETFs function like mutual funds but trade like stocks.

Re: oil price.

Again, 99% of us cannot invest in the actual commodity of oil as an individual or even as a group of people, and there is no practical way to invest in the oil industry at this very moment. If I as...

Re: oil price.

Private citizens pretty much cannot buy actual stock in crude oil. The best one can do is trade in oil futures, but you'll need to hold a minimum of $10,000 liquidity in your account to do that with...

My first post on the forum, so thanks for having me. I don't fool around with door panel vapor barriers anymore. Rather than using classic materials prone to moisture damage for door panels, I use...
