  1. Oil Pan Removal, Engine in Car. '53 Windsor 265.

    This might or might not help.
  2. Seat Covers USA

    I have no idea where the seat covers came from in my D-24. But I am 70 years old and the seat covers look better than I do naked with my lumps and bulges. Perhaps I should post a poll on who wants to see me naked with my lumps and bulges??? I might have to charge a few bucks to post that picture so if interested ante up.

  8. Low oil pressure problems

    How many miles do you plan on driving per year? Any cross country trips planned? Do you have a wad of money burning a hole in your pocket wanting to spend it on a rebuild? Your oil 0pressure is a tad low but if your compression is good why not drive and enjoy it.

    Must have been the way he feathered the throttle. blip-blip=blip

  13. Fire Extinguisher Recommendation

    I recall when Mt Saint Hellens erupted and turned Washington State into a dust bowl. All the emergency vehicles installed oil bath air cleaners as they were much more efficient than paper filters.

  19. 23" - 25" bell housing interchanges

    If you are not using a fluid drive a 4 bolt flywheel will mount to an 8 hole crankshaft. If doing so I do recommend using a bolt with a long shoulder such as pictured below. Also there may be a problem with the starter gear to flywheel measurements.
  20. 1948 Plymouth Rat Rod

    When I removed the hood on my car I asked my trusty dog where to store it. He said roof roof.
  21. help me please!!

    One thing I do know is a new thread on the same problem is not helpful. Ask a moderator to combine the threads so all the facts are in the same location. By doing so will be very helpful to all who can assist you.

  24. Keep right?

    An area where your tires are not supposed to be.
  25. Keep right?

    What gripes me is folks who pay no attention to the painted lines on the roadway. They will shift to the center lane 3 blocks before they make a left turn. Then get pissed at me when I merge left when the painted lines allow it.
