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.

Re: gas mileage AA

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...

Re: Spring Start-Up - What to look for?

Stakebed has a lot of very good suggestions. This takes a bit more work, time and expense but it would be a very good idea to drop the oil pan to clean it out and check and adjust the mains and rod bearings. Also opening up the valve chamber and cleaning it out would be good. Might as well check the...

I have the perfect one but unfortunately Im in IL :(
I wouldn't think it would be bank busting to box up a hood and ship it. If you pull the panels apart it should go into a relatively small box.

Re: Truck progress photos

Jeff - that is really looking nice. I am not at all surprised though. Especially after seeing the pictures of what you did on your Stanley Steamer. Your a true craftsman.
