Re: Engine Knock at 2000 RPM

Good post. Could be bad workmanship or a bad part. Being that the engine rebuilder has already taken it apart and checked it for problems (or so we think) it's hard to know where to go next in this...

Re: Looking for seller of Penrite steering box lube

You can comment about that...you spend a lot of money each year using your Transferwise borderless account debit card buying Model A parts from the USA don't you?

Re: Engine Knock at 2000 RPM

Sorry to hear this has happened to you. Did the engine rebuilder ever hear this rattle at 2000 rpm? If no, why not? If yes, what did he say?

Re: Looking for seller of Penrite steering box lube

Product is good BUT it is overpriced and they are marketing it as a "lube" to suck people into thinking it's a specifically made product for vintage cars. It's 00 grease nothing special to warrant...

Re: Looking for seller of Penrite steering box lube

So your winter drive to Alaska is possible! I suggest Nokia 5.50x19 bias ply tyres for the studs.

Firstly, you DO NOT have to buy a $400 stud gun like this loser did in the video below (I'd like to punch this guy in the face and smash his glasses):

That may or may not be true but it doesn't necessary mean adding studs to say a 19" Firestone will not work or be unsafe. You shouldn't drive at 61mph in a 60 zone but people do and police don't...
