Re: Radiator replacement

What about the one that is ten fins per inch. How much better would it be over the eight?

Radiator replacement

Have anyone replaced their radiator with the heavy-duty one. If you have, did it make a difference with the motor overheating?

Re: rattle-can touch-up paint

Has anyone ever ran across a Thorne Brown. Also what pant dealers have you been using.

Re: Drinking Problem

I'm not going to give up on it. Runs too good. The adapters should be in tomorrow and I can run a compression check on it.

Re: Drinking Problem

Thanks for the info. I would have checked the compression before I posted but I didn't have the adapter. I have one on the way. So I thought I would go ahead and post. Got a lot of good advice.

Re: Drinking Problem

Thanks for the info. I am thinking the same about this motor. It is just like me. WORN out. If that is the case I will have a complete rebuild on it if it can be rebuilt.

Re: Drinking Problem

I don't know how old the build is on the motor. I haven't done a compression check. I am waiting for the adapter to come in. It runs too good for the compression to be very low. But with a motor,...

I have been using 40 weight oil. Time for an oil change. Will change to 20w-50 and see if that helps.
