Re: Thinking about investors.

I don't think the average guy has any idea of the complexity of the cores required for a V-8. I got to watch hundreds formed and poured at Cleveland and the process is amazing. The cores are made...

Re: Jet Flow Rate Testing Rig..

Mike makes a very good point. If you use a larger volume and then divide you will get a far better reading. The starting, stopping, and timing can all induce errors.

Re: Flowing Jets

When I did my jets, after soldering the end shut I used a drill bit on the inside of the jet, larger than the intended jet hole to clean out and smooth the inside before using the proper bit to size...

Re: Kind of a Model A question

I've got a 12 volt winch I'm trying to get rid of. If you weren't so far I'd send it to you. I suspect it will cost a lot for shipping because of the weight.

Re: exhaust manifold leak

Google Remflex. If you have a driver and not a show car this is the best I could find.

Re: First post - opinions on suspension and braking

See if you can find a local club for some help. It might surprise you how little it needs to make it drive able.

Re: Distributor to spark plug connections

Bend them slightly so there is a slight force pushing towards the plug and they will stay put. Never saw one come off before and I used to drive a lot of gravel roads.

Re: cleaning block w/o head on

I would not add the 2-3 cups and drive it see if it stays. That was the first mistake I made when I bought my Model A, trying to keep it too full.

Re: knock at start up

Have you checked the water pump? After rebuilding my transmission I got a knock. Figured it had to be the transmission so I pulled the rear end and trans out. Couldn't find anything so I started it...

Re: know your shipper

I don't call that a scam at all. Buyer beware, sometimes a price that is too good, is just that too good!

Aermore Exhaust Whistle

The whistle works. It is attached to a homemade adapter to mount it to the end of the tailpipe. I'll sell with or without the adapter. The price is the same either way, just will save in shipping...

Re: How do Wheel Bearings Survive?

Re: Head Bolts won't line up

Are you not concerned that the holes in the block are a course thread? I don't know this for a fact but would suspect it would be harder to get proper torque?
