Re: Speedo Opinion

If you still have problems after you try it yourself, send it to PapaNick in Ny. He does a nice job and is very reasonable. He usually advertises in the ads section.

Re: Rattle-can painting

Hey Marty, I have seen that car. It looks amazing. It looks better than a lot of custom paint jobs I've seen.

Re: Speedometer Again

He does great work and has a really quick turn around time. He recalibrated 2 of mine and they are now right on when compared with the gps.

Re: Speedometer Repair

He has done 2 for me. Very quick turnaround and very reasonable. He got them to within 2 mph on the gps. They had been off by almost 12mph.

Re: Carb dripping gas onto floor

I put a small shutoff valve right near the carb and I shut it off and let it run out of gas when I'm parking it for a while or putting it in my attached garage. Works good for me. I don't use the one...

Re: Squealing Leakless Water Pump or Clutch?

I had the exact problem. I thought it was the water pump or the altenator. Just for the heck of it I sprayed some belt dressing on the belt and it immediately went away!

Re: Cabriolet vacuum wiper

I bought a rebuilt one from Bert's. They don't always have them in stock though. I didn't have to give them a core with it.

Re: Rebuild stock 31 box or replace with F100 box?

Re: ??? how to get junk tire off the rim

I use a razor knife and slice through the sidewall and then they come right off. BE CAREFUL though, they don't call them a razor knife for nothing.

Re: Motorcycle Tubes

I used motorcycle tubes in my front T-bucket tires and they worked very well and did not leak. Actually I used 19in. MC tires on it too. They worked great and handled pretty well.
