Re: upper radiator hoses

Might as well do a full drain and flush while it is down. How much are you saving doing it half-ass.

Re: Gas gauge gasket disintegrated

When you replace the points smear a bit of points cam lubricant on the cam. Maybe even buff and polish the cam to make it less abrasive on the point block.

Re: Gas gauge gasket disintegrated

Use the cork gaskets. Some use a smear of grease on them to ease install and maybe it helps preserve them a bit.

Re: Gas gauge gasket disintegrated

The gasket mostly likely succumbed to old age. The cork gaskets are the best in this application.

Re: 1927 dashboard

One is for the lights, there is a choke and there is a carburetor adjustment for fine tuning.

Re: Oil filter missing

A bypass filter will filter all of the oil but not all at one time. Add the filter.

For a lot of years that was true but the earliest and late models were available in colors.

Re: Stromberg Big 97 on a stock manifold?

Soap and water should be able to flush it clean. Use a hose & nozzle.

Re: 26 Roadster

You will only need to use the AC function on a volt/ohm meter to see if the mag puts out good or any voltage. They can put out more than 30V AC. That (hot spark), and the fact that the coils will...

Re: 26 Roadster

Nice car! You should be able to sell the distributor setup for enough money to do the change back to multi-coil. I would drive the car as is for a while before changing things just so you will have a...

Re: Carpet Caper

Use the fiber pad (thin) glued to the back of the carpet. Removes from the car easily as one piece. Buy the carpet you like. Auto parts stores sell blacks and browns.

Re: Stromberg Big 97 on a stock manifold?

My 283 was a'59 Vette engine, I was told the carb was a Rochester but It was a long time ago so maybe things are foggy. What I remember most about the setup was the tune center having a hard time...

Re: Starting Issue - Need Ideas!

Re: Starting Issue - Need Ideas!

Off timing will not increase compression. A good starter and proper wiring is all that is needed plus a good battery to get the engine rolling.

Re: Stromberg Big 97 on a stock manifold?

Fun thoughts, I once had a 1957 Chevy with a Corvette 283 305 Hp dual quad setup. It was fast but got seriously faster after adding one Rochester carb and manifold from a 365 HP 327. The car then was...
