Re: Look at a car for me In Tennessee?

Re: Difficulty moving shift lever

If it’s a thick oil issue, it should get better as you drive further. Take it out for a 20 mile drive and see if it shifts easier after it gets warmed up.

Re: 4 post lift

I’ve never used them commercially and I’ve never had problems using them the way I do. Maybe all of mine had U.S. relays......my pumps are all Duro Hydraulics.

Re: 4 post lift

Re: 4 post lift

Re: A question for old guys

Notice that I didn’t put the cars directly under the heaters. They recommend 6’ of clearance below the heaters, to eliminate cooking something. My shop prior to this one had similar heaters and I had...

Re: Gears 1930 model A

It’s normal if you aren’t double clutching. Shifting without double clutching requires precise use of the throttle while shifting.

Re: transport

There is a Fastenal location in your town Nick. 502 S. Eastern Blvd.

There are at least 20 locations in New Jersey, so there should be one close to the shipper.
