Re: Express bed boards

I really like your truck. What are your plans for the finish. Leaving it as is?

Re: Express bed boards

Glad it didn't burn up. Consider getting the fuse that mounts on the starter. Would have prevented the possibility of the truck catching fire.

Re: what can be done about rod knock

Okay. Let us know what you find out. Still not clear if you can make the noise while the car is stationary. While parked and in neutral does it make the noise when engine speed is increased? If so pull one spark plug wire at a time and see if the noise can be made to stop. Doing so may narrow it dow...

Re: what can be done about rod knock

Have you used a mechanics stethoscope or long screw driver pressed against your ear to narrow down where the sound is coming from? Does the engine only make the noise under load and not while at idle or does the noise occur when the engine is revved while in neutral? If you can make the noise while ...

Re: Timing

I'm thinking that your timing gear is probably not your problem. Did you pull the distributor off, remove the upper plate to get a really good look at your points? They may be pitted to the point that dressing them with a points file will not allow them to function as they should. Not a big job or s...

Re: distributor lock bolt stripped

I see no problem with installing a helicoil. I did one for a friend a while back. Put a rag in the distributor hole to catch metal shavings and then vacuum them out before removing the rag.

The miles per gallon is not nearly as important as the smiles per mile.

Re: Dormant project coming back to life!

Good to see that you are able to get back to your AA again. Keep us posted on the progress. Wish I had the answers you need on you other posts but I am an early 29 owner. Don't know the details on the latter cabs.

Re: Flatbed Board Finish Options.

I did white oak exactly as you have done with your bed wood. After sanding I used a 50/50 mixture of boiled linseed oil and turpentine. Do not use any more than 50% linseed oil as it may remain sticky. You can go 60% turpentine if you like. After getting a couple of coats onto the wood and letting i...
