Powder post beetle problem

I read that borax will get rid of them but will it corrode my car? I would rather not have to take all the wood out if I don’t have to. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I have in the resent past installed the pop up pistons in two engines. They go in with no issues and do make a big difference in power band, torque and top speed.
Tyrone, Have you also used the HC head? If so how do you rate the power increase of the HC pistons to that of HC head?

Re: Transmission 1927 pickup questions

The point is, there were drums that had entirely different dimensions where' they had flanged bushings, later did not. Early drums require modification or other specific alteration to fit all 3 washers, as they in fact did NOT have 3 washers as designed. This is a caveat to your statement that tran...

If you machine .015 off the under side, it should take all three thrust washers.
Set the end play to .015.

The transmission washer, if the transmission fits together well without the other 2 washers, then you will not need them.

I don't like aluminum heads. If I could purchase a cast iron one, I might be temped.
Cast Iron heads were available for a short while a few years back for a little more $$ over aluminum. It would be nice if they were put back in production.

Bert, The Turbo-400 disc are the best setup. This clutch when setup right and not allowed to slip will give you the best neutral for your T and will last many thousands of miles.

Re: High Compression Pistons

Thanks John and Ricky.

I would like to be able to climb most hills in high gear, but would prefer the original cast iron head. If the HC head adds a huge improvement in torque over pop up pistons I would go that rout tho.
