Re: Anyone use these drill/tap all in one?

I have found that most tools made to do more than one thing are as useless as tits on a bore hog. Drill your hole with a drill bit. Tap your threads with a tap.

Re: Upper Steering Column Bearing

Get the "Brucegard" (I think is his name). That is probably the one on Amazon. Far superior to the wheel barrow bearings. Well worth the money. I have his bearing in my 35 Pickup Icon. Lawson.

Re: Wood floor stiffener hardware

No hardware other than bolts and T-nuts. Check with whoever took over from Roy Nacewicz. Wasn't that Third Generation Auto. Mike Driskell? (Help an old man out here folks. LOL)

Re: Wildfire evacuation

Sorry to hear this. The tree huggers out there need to learn that it is necessary to cut underbrush to prevent this sort of thing. Stay safe. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Re: Head skimming: Any tips?

Take it to a good reliable machine shop and 'splain what you want done. Couldn't be all that much trouble or money. Some things are better paid for than experimenting with yourself. My 2˘.

Hey. If you are worried about a blow out on a brake switch, go back to original mechanical brakes on your 35. Give us a break man. I've been in this hobby for over 50 years and have NEVER had a...

Re: Radiator Cap

DMMuri did not ask about a pressure cap, he asked about a gasket. Is not the part of an original cap that seats against the radiator cap called, and in fact is a gasket?

Re: stainless molding

Texting while driving is stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, and constitutes a death wish. If you wanna kill yourself, go right ahead, but think of the folks you may crash into and kill.
