Re: Radiator repair and engine cleaning

Looking good! I agree with you that the paint from Bert's is good stuff. I like the color too. With their spray paint I put a very light first coat just to get a bit of tack to the surface. You almost can not see the color its so thin. Second coat is pretty much the same. The third and final coat I ...

Re: Radiator repair and engine cleaning

For cleaning your engine try using Meguires Purple Power cleaner followed by straight Simple Green. It has been a good combination for me. Just be sure to use disposable nitrile gloves with the Purple Power. It is quite hard on skin. You should be able to clean up the crack and J.B. weld it. The key...

Re: FOR SALE: Set of '28 AA Spoke Wheels (AA 1015)

Just as an FYI shipping wheels does not require them to be boxed. You can put a couple of wraps of duct tape around them the same as where the flaps go. Write the shipping information on the tape and send them USPS.

Re: Bushing Fit Question

Use a sharp punch and peen the inside of the pivot to make more of an interference fit. Rough up the outside of the bushing with some emery cloth and then use Loctite 638 when you assemble it.

Re: Play in Rear Spring Seat Assembly

The grooves are part of the design. I believe that they are there to help with the retention/distribution of grease.

Warford shift lever cut out

I was able to get the Warford mounted in my early 29 truck today. The only thing I have left to do is cut the hole in the seat riser for the gear shift lever. Would anyone be able to let me know the measurements of what they have done?

Thanks,
Dave

Re: Wing nut for top bracket hold down

Muratic acid / water mix at 50% solution will remove the chrome plating very quickly. I use this mixture to take the plating off of nuts, bolts, washers etc... to make them more easily painted.

Re: AA truck Ride

Have you dissembled your springs, cleaned them up and lubricated them? They are plenty stiff and every little bit helps. Having a soft seat is a plus too.

Re: Compression Test

You would need to have the head off to look at the shape of the domes in the head.

Re: Compression Test

75 on all for would be excellent compression. Stock heads usually give up to around 65 lbs compression. Is this a high compression head?
The main thing even if compression on the lower side is to have all 4 cylinders to have readings that are pretty close to each other.

Re: Engine Assessment Questions

Sounds to me like you get a good bit of satisfaction by working on mechanical things. At the very least you need to pull the pan, clean it, check the oil pump, remove the valve cover and clean out the valve chamber. While the pan is off you should also check the bearing clearances on the rods and th...
