WTB: 26 Head Light Ring

I was driving my 26 coupe filming our "social distancing" drive Saturday, when all of a sudden my the right head light ring and lens fell off. I stopped and picked it up, but the pins are sheared off. So, I am looking for a replacement. Does anyone have a good chrome, or nickel one that they would b...

Re: Updated Transmission Oil Video (While Car is "Moving")

That video answers my concerns about how the screen redirects a large percentage of the oil to the rear and not to the linings and drums. I do not see much oil going to the rear without the screen installed. I am still inclined to think that using the screen, as purchased, could help in causing prem...

Re: The frustration of incompetence

If it did get that hot, the rings may be compromised. A little honing and a new set of rings will fix that, as long as the pistons and cylinder walls are not damaged? I think that you also need to get the valves and seats properly ground and the lash properly adjusted.

Re: Today's Social Distancing Video

I still have not had the time to do the longer drive that I have planned. But, don't worry, I did get the roadster out Saturday and did another short drive. We will see some familiar territory. I do think I hit one road that we had not been down? We will let Steve figure out witch road?? I will uplo...

Re: Transmission Oil Video

I installed the screens this winter when I rebuilt the rear axles. The roadster has not been driven very much. The coupe has seen some miles doing my "social distancing" videos. I need to pull the cover on it and adjust the brake band a little bit. When I had the cover off of the roadster, I contemp...

Re: Transmission Oil Video

Today, I pulled the cover off my roadster to adjust the brake band. There was some crud on the magnet and on the screen, but nothing major at all. I enlarged the 4 holes to 1/4, 5/16, 3/8 and 3/8. Then I enlarged 3 rows of the small holes, in the deepest section, out to 5/64. I am still concerned th...

Re: Transmission Oil Video

Watching these videos again today, clearly while driving, most of the oil is flowing down around the drums. I am inclined to think that the presence of the screen redirects the majority of the oil to the rear. Thus, starving the bands and drums of full oil flow. One would think that this should caus...

Re: My radiator shell does not fit my new radiator. ??

Here are a couple of pictures of my old radiator out of the coupe. Just as the others the neck is within 1/4" in from the front. I would contact Lee again and present these comparisons to them. He should make it right.

Re: My radiator shell does not fit my new radiator. ??

They look like the same shell. They both measure about 3 1/2" front to rear. When I ordered the new radiator from Brassworks. Lee told me that if I had the thin radiator and long fan pulley, that I would just have to swap it out for the shorter pulley. My coupe had the thick radiator and short pulley.
