Re: Steam cleaning engine/trans?

If your going to get leaks fixed at the radiator shop, do yourself a HUGE favor, ... have them pop the top and have the tubes rodded out.

Nope, how could valves effect a head gasket? If it was a thing, then over-sized pistons would also be a thing.

Re: 4-banger books

Re: So what is an AR?

Hi Chris,

it's my understanding the "A" is for Model A and the "R" means replaced. The the part should next have a "B".

I could be wrong.

Re: Front Crank Seal Replacement Questions

On hold.

I removed the timing cover and degreased it and found a crack at the left motor mount hole going down and to the right.

Anyone know who sells them?
