Re: How To Remove Cosmoline

Hot tank or parts washer is what we used at the Cat dealership. For small parts, the solvent tank. The pressure washer outside was often used to knock the majority off first.

Re: Scam alert

If PayPal doesn't give your money back, you can claim fraud on your credit card that was tied to your PayPal account. You should be able to get your money back. Usually has 60 day time limit though.

Re: is it ok to run diluted antifreeze?

I have seen charts showing the change in boiling point and freeze protection of different ratios of coolant/water. Sorry I don't have a link.

Re: D44 R&P pattern

I've never built a D44 but, I've built a lot of 9 inch Ford, Toyota and Caterpillar from small to massive. That's a nice pattern. Unless there's something about a D44 I don't know about.

Re: F-1 Running Boards

F3 and F3 running boards are longer than F1 versions. They are not reproduced and can be difficult to find. I'm referring to the 48-52 model years.
