    Need Ideas for Converting Coins into Paper Money

    Bank teller at the bank said, " just roll the quarters and dimes, dump the rest in a coin machine, bring the rolls to me ". I'am cheap, so I roll all my own.. once a year...this year had enough to get a carburetor , a gas tank , and 5 gallons race gas . It's like free money!!

    Dropping transmission - any pointers?

    +1 on the throwout bearing and check bearing retainer.. check clutch free travel.. also with a bad transmission bearing, you would have other problems.. as for removing trans, I put floor jack under trans in line. so the jack can roll back. wiggle transmission, slide it back , lower, wiggle transmission, slide it back , lower, for extra insurance place many short 2x4s around jack, in case you can't control the crash .. roll it off the jack.. drag it out ... I put them in the same way... slow and calculated is best ..

    Dual B & B Carb tuning

    "seems that it is very easy to flood the motor ", the motor is flooded before you start it..." The carbs leak after I turn the engine off thru the bottom shafts", high float level caused by float level too high, , trash in the needle and seat , sunk float. because both carbs. leak ...I would head to the fuel filter, trash made it to the needle and seats. you need to get new ones, they come in the carb. kits Or the float level is just set to high , from past repairs. pull carb. top off like 5 or 6 screws...you can push float tang against the needle and check height , level or less . . as for synchronizing carbs , you need 2 vacuum gauges.. synchronizing carbs. is not that important,, because they share a common plenum.... make sure they open at the same time. and go to full throttle at the same time ,set mixture too highest vacuum..Oh yea,, does oil smell like gas???.

    question about carbs.

    A can of carb. cleaner w/tube , lightly spray carb and anything that touches the intake. If spray finds any sorts of spark, it will burn , and that's always exciting . .. my guess is a worn throttle shaft. Or the less flammable way, fingers over the carb. to slowly richen mixture. if its a vacuum problem it should smooth up just before trying to stall...this way doesn't pin point the location, but just verify a leak ....... I want to see pics. of the plugs.

    Carb Kickin' My Butt

    I hate to say this, but auto zone $159.00 .. ordered in morning , had same afternoon.. my old carb. wouldn't idle consistently,, some weeks ran good , some weeks not so good .. accel. pump was a joke. I borrowed a smoke machine ,, throttle shaft , and warped flange. did not pass the smoke test .. i wasted time , polishing a turd. I started looking for a late model carb., like something from the 70's... found one of my old slant six carbs bolts right up, needs spacer to clear linkage. johnsartian posted a rock auto carb. fits, searched autoline C522 . auto zone carries autoline carbs .. new rebuilt carb. in my hands ,with warranty.. hated to spend the money will put old carb on shelf and fix it later ,,..
  9. https://daytona.craigslist.org/cto/d/1970-dodge-charger/6722931651.html you too can own a duke boys starter kit , a little orange paint , a flag on the roof , bam your there ...or build it as a daytona charger, I guess its why the ad is posted way down here in daytona .. just in time for bike week. Also, It looks like the fall colors in the picture,, winters coming, he needs to sale no heater..

    Overheating. 210 in a 160 thermo

    I have questions.. Is there water flow in radiator when running at operating temps. ? Is top hose ,bottom hose ,and radiator all the same temps. at operating temps? if it's flowing, you need to check for a head gasket leak, pull oil fill cap, is condensation present ? pull water pump belt off . remove cap ,start motor . are there bubbles present in radiator when revving or leave belt on and let motor idle look at the bubbles , do they go away in a couple of minute of idling ..compression bubbles look different than aeration bubbles .. or go buy block checking kit, see if changes from blue to yellow...https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/BK_7001006... It would be good to invest in a IR temp gun ..https://www.amazon.com/HDE-Non-Contact-Thermometer-Temperature-Functional/dp/B00QYX6F5G. cheap and good for everything. don't get me started on all the problems this thing can help find..I typed bubbles many times.. Or pull all plugs look into cylinder too see if any piston tops are clean..

    rear axle swap

    A clutch, is a clutch, is a clutch. makes no difference a 39 plymouth to a 2018 dodge ram , to a peterbilt 379. . its all the same . just bigger parts.. you just need to find a good mechanic.. chase down a Snap on tool truck.. And what Plymouthy Adams, wayfarer, said... seek and you will find....Check the Napa store, I get many referrals from them. sorry for the font change , copy and pasted , the whole thing failed..Oh no!!
