Re: Crank shaft pulley wobbles

That sounds about right to me. I have looked it over pretty good and it is not loose at all. It just has a little run out when turning. Probably been that way as long as I have owned it. I will...

Re: Crank shaft pulley wobbles

Re: Crank shaft pulley wobbles

Appears to be a two piece. Doesn't seem to be loose in any way. I have a feeling it has been this way for a long time. I was timing the engine and noticed it today. I looked at some you tube...

Crank shaft pulley wobbles

I noticed a wobble in the crank shaft pulley that drives the belt for accessories. Is this normal or is it indicating imminent catastrophe?

Re: Interesting read in Hemmings about restoration costs.

I remember getting a 1959 Chevy painted for 29.99 at Earl Scheib back in the early 70s Looked great to me at the time.

Re: How do I identify a two blade aluminum fan

My fan will not attract a magnet. I had thought of this but I also was not sure what the original fans were made of. Some things you assume are ferrous turn out not to be. Thanks for reply.

How do I identify a two blade aluminum fan

Is there a quick way to determine if I have an original or the replacement two blade fan short of removing it? Any identifying features or marks?

Re: Balancing an engine at home (Newbie)

Re: Is fuel bubbling normal

Good to know. I bought the $26.00 one at Harbor Freight. Should read close enough for what I need but I will have the engine shut down before using it. Thanks for the heads up.

Re: Is fuel bubbling normal

This car does not have a glass sediment bowl. That is why I used the plastic filter. I felt like some kind of filter was probably needed and that was handy.

Re: Is fuel bubbling normal

A dose of upper lube sounds like a good idea. I will start using it in the Ford and also my MG. I learn new things all the time here.

Re: Is fuel bubbling normal

Plastic filter is far from the manifolds but I'm probably going to get rid of it as I'm sure it is a weak link in the system.

Tank has been cleaned and treated. Not sure if I have a pencil filter. Don't recall seeing one.
