Re: ANY 39 Mercury hubcap guru's or Ford guru's

Perhaps. Depending upon when the text was embossed during the manufacturing process, a smooth cap may have potentially required different tooling than the other two. Was the text stamped in the...

Re: ANY 39 Mercury hubcap guru's or Ford guru's

Does it have any manufacturer markings on the surfaces that would not be visible when...

Re: How many on the Barn were there?

I would have also been of "negative" age in 1973.

Re: Harley Davidson low pressure brake light witch

Ditch the pressure switch and use a mechanically operated one. No more worrying about the switch leaking or needing to bleed the brakes when you replace it. There's a reason why OEMs stopped using...

So, you don't actually have any theft prevention devices or practices.

Re: Change 12V Positive Ground to Negative ground

He's using the shape to determine if it's a generator or an alternator, which is a relatively reasonable thing to do unless it's one of the Powermaster units.

Re: Flat head horde

When they die their engines will be scrapped.

Re: USPS strikes again destruction of packages

That box doesn't appear to be constructed of corrugated cardboard designed for shipping. I'd place the blame for that FUBAR on whomever shipped it.

Re: Flathead Machine shop in Kansas City area?

If all you need is a crack check and boring, then any competent engine machine shop can handle that work. There's nothing special about the flathead in that department.

Re: Patina or Paint?

A proper paint job is time consuming and expensive, and there's not much worse than a poorly done paint job.

Leave the patina.

Re: Deuceheaven Video by Mecum Auctions

I don't think that's actually the case. The terms and conditions provided on the auction registration form do not make any mention of such a policy.

If it didn't have insurance added you'll be SOL.

Re: How to repair damage to a deck

I'd take it to a machine shop that's experienced in welding cast iron, and then have the deck milled just enough to clean the surface up.

Regardless of what filler material you use, you'll need to...

Re: Main bearing blowup and fasteners

Don't use split "lock" washers, as they provide zero locking function and can adversely affect bolt tension.

Those "new" bolts also look like standard hardware store fasteners, not the appropriate...

Re: 1932 - 1934 roadster pickup door hinges

Unfortunately, they're buried away at the back of a storage building at my parents. Haven't seen the light of day in probably close to 10 years.

Re: Piston balancing

The weight of the piston needs to be included when balancing a crankshaft.

You can't change pistons from XYZ grams to ZYX grams without affecting the balance of the system.
