Re: how to remove front hub inner bearing seal?

Probably really don't need to replace it
Just clean it all up and, you should be good seeing that its just something to keep the dust and dirt out of the bearing.

Re: The Right Stuff

We used it for header gaskets on roundy round car works great
It's the best stuff I've ever used a little bit pricey but will worth it

Re: Remove this bolt?

Heat it cherry red and spray with
penetrating oil let it cool down and then try and turn it out
Will almost come out with very little trouble

Re: clutchplate just fits the flywheel, or not ??

Flywheel probably gas been resurfaced a little to much
You could get ARP flywheel bolts and lock tight them

Re: Does 1929 Open Ford Roadster Windshield Latch?

Only if you leave the wing nuts loose at the top
Close the window and tighten the wing nuts and, the window will stay closed

Re: Maybe starter problems?

You might check grounding cables to the frame if you haven't already

Re: is it ok to run diluted antifreeze?

50/50 mix is best
I personally would never run just water ,
With antifreeze it helps keep the rust from forming

Re: Timing Issue

hc head has nothing to do with timing!
and if you are running your timing in the retard position all the time, it will continue to overheat!!!!

Lightbulb Re: Begging to be a hot rod.

just because you turn it into a hot rod don't mean it's not going to stop running on you
just need to fix the problem each time and drive it

Re: Manifold heater question(s)

Why not just get a different manifold if you're not going to use the heater part anyway

Re: Engine oil level question

If you just run it
It will find it's own level
Just keep an eye on it
It will be fine

Re: Cannot Get Rebuilt Ignition Cable to Read 6 Volts on the Points

Sounds to me you are trying to test a hot wire from a hot wire source
Try hooking your tester to a head stud then to you your points or cable
