Is anyone manufacturing/selling a Horlick-style mountain pan (4-dip)? I'd like to install one on my current rebuild.

Can anybody identify the metal timing gear pictured? The number on it is: T415B and looks to be in pretty good condition. I can't locate any reference to that number.

Given the choice, would you install the used metal one of the new nylon one?

Re: Freeze Crack Repair

Dang. Strike one. I located and sealed 4 cracks. Some had been brazed up, some puttied. I had to use a composite head gasket to put the new (good) head on. When I re-torqued it this morning; more water in the valve chamber!! :cry: It's a durn shame too; hardened seats, stainless valves, adjustable l...

Freeze Crack Repair

I found some water in my lifter galley, and an old repair in the water jacket between 2 & 3. The repair is oil-colored and lifting around the edges. I can't tell if its JB Weld or Marine Tex. One of the freeze plugs is covered in white epoxy; pretty sure that's Marine tex. it will be impossible to g...

A Good Day

Getting the Roadster dialed in: We logged over 50 miles, including 2 ten-mile runs at 40+ mph. Top speed was 45. Dog didn't ride the whole day, but he had a good time!

Re: Low pedal sticking.

So far so good; two whole turns and the pedal operates like it should. I took the cover off to make sure I wasn't shredding bands, and took up a couple turns on the brake as well. I guess I just had them too loose. While the cover was off, I pushed the car back a few feet, then forward: The flywheel...

Low pedal sticking.

I Re-lined my trans bands today. After a 3 or 4 mile trip the low speed pedal began to stick down. I had to pull it up with my toe, then it would pop up. What'd I do wrong?

FS; used 21" tires.

Santa came early. Anyone need these take-offs?
Two are very cracked, two less cracked but stone-bruised. Four rim liners, three metal-stem tubes.
Good for rollers.
How about fourty bucks for the set, buyer pays shipping?

Improved car stanchions

I'm having some challenges with my 27 project: I'm not sure if the windshield frames are distorted or if the top clamps are spaced incorrectly. Can anybody post the correct measurement/distance between the top of the sanctions where the top clamps go?
Thanks in advance.

All,

How snug should the bendix stop nut fit in the starter casting?
Mine binds. Shouldn't it spin freely?

I can beat that. I still drive my first car, a 1910 T touring. I am 87 and bought my car when I was 14 in 1946. Sept.28, 1946. PAID $125. I WILL POST PICKS.
I'd like to see some "then-and-now" pictures!

Wait, wasn't 125 a lot for a 36 year old car back then? (before my time)
