Chad I have bolt on dimple bars if you need to borrow them for the A crank throws. Pretty simple, just heat the areas and hammer down where the voids are.

Re: cutting cast hogs head for aux oil line

Drill in a series of connecting holes (around 1/8" or slightly larger) would be best. Then if you have access to an air die grinder with a cut off wheel would work great. Clean up the edges by means of a file or use a die grinder with an acorn style bit.

Re: Tricks from the Past, that work.

Some more simple tricks! Since time to time we need to remove the oil pan inspection plate and the transmission top cover, I normally use 3M Super Weatherstrip Adhesive or Permatex Ultra Black and glue one gasket to the pan/hoghead and another gasket to the metal cover plate. Give a light coat of Va...

Fatman steering wheels are in a breed of their own. Kevin Allen is the guy to get a hold of if you require wood for it. Wood by Kevin Allen.

Re: wood spoke paint?

An oil base like alkaline prime and paint on the wood, and an acrylic enamel or urethane on the steel. You can paint them all the same but the paint on the spokes may only last ten years.

IMG_4586.jpeg IMG_4588.jpeg As a bonus since this had oil around the solder in the front of the pan, I took an acorn grinding bit to the soldered area and applied JB Weld. Works well. Also since it is using conventional fine thread nuts on the main bearings, Re-torque and a light grind with a bit, ...

Three times before doing anything to the metal and three times cleaning after metal and soldering is done with a stainless steel tooth brush. Now I come back with 60 grit and a small block...

Re: Tricks from the Past, that work.

Multiple passes might be required in the cold soldering and then you make a very fast smoothing one, but remember to punch and hammer every time.
