Re: King pin reamers/ brands/part #

A few of us have done them ourselves using emery cloth wrapped around a slotted dowel turned by a slow drill lubricated with kerosene. I'll have to do some searching to find the posts. Also did my...

Re: Covid excuse to play hookey

Thanks! I once asked an auto paint shop if they had a "flattening agent." They said they didn't have it but it was "very expensive."

Re: Pitman arm question

PS: I'm using a wishbone with a K member (home made) and an F! steering box that I cut the flange off and welded on a new flange made from 3/8" plate to Model A dimensions.

Re: Pitman arm question

I'm using a 21A-3590 (or is it a 3550?) It's about 6" center to center of the holes. I had to put a slight twist in it so that the drag link would be aimed up at the steering arm without binding the...

Re: Rust protection for springs

It's a spray protectant / lubricant but it's based on lanolin instead of petroleum. I got a couple of cans from a local parts dealer.

Re: Anyone know how to renew NJ QQ (antique) plates?

I get a renewal notice from the MVC every three years for my old Chevy coupe. And yes, there's no charge. It's my understanding that the NJMVC is a bit overwhelmed and understaffed lately with the...
