Pete what was the method you used to...

Re: 1938 Firestone whitewall tire pressure

On my daily driven 35 pickup the fronts 5.50x16 I ran at 35, the rears 7.50x16 at 32. The front tyres are still in great condition after 6 years and would have years more left in them.

Re: syncro hub position for second

I checked mine and it sits off nearly a 1/4" , was just curious as to if this would be another possible cause of jumping out of second ?

Re: Cornhead grease and steering gear oil.

Yes use a semi fluid grease 00 I use the Penrite one [Lithium] It will continue to leak until the oil is "drained "out.. And even then may not be a magic fix.
