Re: Alignment

I have been using a toe in bar for years.

Kawa (12) brought up the string method. For those that have used both methods, how would you compare the two?

Re: 6 blade plastic radiator fan

Does the 6 blade really cool better, or are you installing them for piece of mind vs the 2 blade aluminum?

Re: Steering Wheel Nubs

I am unclear of the question, but On my 31 roadster I do not have any "numbs" in the inner ring, or indents.

The 3 indents are done with the spider at the bottom of the steering column.

Re: Tie down wheels or axles when towing

Why don't you cross tie? What is the disadvantage in doing this.

That is what I have been doing for both the front and rear.

Re: Can't get engine started after changing timing gear

Curious, does it matter what side of the meter post that you attach both wires to?

I also don't understand. What is actually happening when you join both wires on a single post?

Re: engine compression

For a good approximate way to get what your number should be, number do this.

14.7x the head ratio number.

Example: 14.7 x 6.1=89.67 psi or 14.7x 4.2=61.74psi.
