Re: Door hinge screw removal

I agree. I have had excellent results using an impact driver. Get a good one, not a cheapie. And as suggested, get bits that fit.

Re: Torque wrench

There was a comparison test in a magazine (I think it was Hot Rod) a few years ago that said the Harbor Freight torque Wrench to be one of the more accurate ones tested.

Re: Arizona Insurance

Would a 1984 F-250 have to be smogged in Arizona if it didn't have Historical Vehicle plates? Is the only advantage to registering a 1984 F-250 as a Historical Vehicle is that it doesn't have to be...

Re: 1951 flathead to C4 conversion

I used a Flat-o adaptor in my '55 with a y-block. Most everything you need in the kit. I think I would look for a later C-4 than a '65 tho. Perhaps '70 on up. JMO.

Re: Car Cover???

Yes, a good one is not cheap. I have a Covercraft "Sunbrella" model and it cost ~ $500 a few years ago. I'm sure it would cost more now. But it fits real well over my Town Sedan with trunk and spare...

Re: Drag link ends

If you flip them the grease fitting is going to point towards the axle, making it difficult to lube. My grease fitting and bolt are on the same side, facing back. I think it says in the Service...

Re: Engine oil again

Let us not forget that the Burtz engine is pressurized also, unlike the stock engine that has a gravity/splash system.

Re: GAV Adjustment While Driving?

Now there is a true statement if I ever heard one!! Set the GAV where your engine runs best. Never mind what everyone else sez.

I would venture to say the Ol' Girl didn't have much interest in going 50 mph and let you know! That and what 1930artdeco said.

Re: gasket sealent

How much crud inis in your gas tank? Rust and such will scratch the valve and make it hard to turn.

Re: Removing fuse holder

Re: Rear Brakes

No reason at all. Some of the vendors sell a loaded rebuilt backing plate. Randy Gross just sent a friend 4 loaded backing plates with cast iron drums all ready to go.

Re: A few timing gear questions

The drawing in post #13 is the drawing you are referring to. I agree it is not the best but in no way it is one tooth off. It does show that the keyway should be to the left of the timing mark, not...
