Re: Patina or Paint?

If you paint it you will spend more money and enjoy the truck less.

Re: 39 coupe interior

Actually no, It is a regular Brother machine that she use to make doll cloths. We could only sew 2 layers together so the pattern is fairly simple.

Re: Upper Steering Column Bearing

I use a 1 inch piece of a bicycle inner tube and stretch it over the bearing then pushed it into the column. It holds everything nice and tight.

Re: Engine Rattle

Phill,
I did have pinging issues before. I had to limit the amount of Vac advance in the MSD distributor. The rattle is not as sharp as a ping.

Re: Coker Excelsior Stahl Radial Tires

I knew a guy that had them on a model A roadster hotrod. He did not like them. He though they were out of round. But that was 8 years ago. Things may have changed.

Re: 1950 f1

Dump a little gas (about 2 table spoons) down the carb and see if it fires up. If it does, you've narrowed it down to fuel pump or carb. Maybe a stuck needle and seat in the carb.

Re: oil in cylinder

Upon further investigation, It appears to be the result of a gunky PCV valve and a little over fill oil level. Waiting for new head gaskets to verify.

Re: oil in cylinder

I believe the dings are from a spark plug electrode that hit the exhaust valve. It seams that that plug hole was bored a little deeper than the rest. I now have a copper washer under that plug.

What would cause one cylinder to ingest oil like this? Install rings backwards?
