Re: Grease Fittings

Getting the old ones out is pretty much like pulling teeth. Grab them with a pair of vice grips and rock them back & forth while pulling.

Re: Grab handle

Re: whats the best & worst car to buy in 1930

Re: Thermostat update.

You don't have to tip the radiator to get a hose on. Just remove the top of the T-stat housing (4 bolts). Easy-Peasy.

Re: Fog Light Switch Help

Re: Engine heat in cold weather

I don't turn the fan on until I've driven a mile or so. It's usually warm by then. Really doesn't affect the engine temp. 160 t-stat, will get there and stays between 160-170.
