Re: Suggestions on crud removal

I like a razor scraper handle like you get at paint store for single edge razor blades for removing gaskets on machined surfaces. If you have the babbit out, have it hot tanked. Most shops also have...

Re: Extended Warranty

A friend of mine is a retired federal meat inspector. It dawned on me one day, although everyone would agree it is a necessary service, no one was ever "happy" to see him show up. I asked him about...

Re: question

If it is legally licensed I would just show up like nothing is out of the ordinary and use proper hand signals etc.,. as required. It takes way more skill to drive an antique over modern one.

Extended Warranty

I finally answered the telemarketing call for vehicle warranty sales and the gentleman with the heavy Indian accent asked for my vehicle make and model. When I told him 1930 Ford AA he hung up on me?

Re: Hot water heater will not fit

There isn’t a lot of room in there. I had thought about doing a hot water heater, but since I found a big crack in my exhaust manifold and now have a brand new one I decided to try a manifold heater.

Re: Starter windings . . . a Look-See

Cloth friction tape to repair, don’t use plastic tape, then spray them good with electrical insulating varnish. I got a can at Grainger. Mine looked similar, not quite as bad. I also re insulated...

Re: Starter . . . Rebuild or Rebuilt?

I rebuilt mine. Handfuls of rust and mud dauber nests came out when I took it apart. I finally had to heat a couple of the screws in the fields to get them loose. Penetrant and heat over a couple...

Re: 31 pickup leaking steering box

I put the end plate with the tube in when I rebuilt mine, but it leaked anyway. Turns out it was leaking round the bolts. I pulled the bolts and put thread sealant on them and fixed it.

Re: I went picking today.........

I seem to be in a model A desert. Not much around here. Went to a pretty good swap meet last fall a couple hours away, one locally held had zero model A stuff. Most things cancelled for the covid.

Re: Clutch shaft AA and A the same?

Order three bushings. On the operating side there should be a longer bushing I put two and trimmed one.
