  1. Sam Buchanan's post in Major Leak---Countershaft 3-speed was marked as the answer   
    Leak is fixed...so far. Still have a small drip out or off the flywheel belly pan, but the flywheel was clean when I removed it and the rear seal looked dry. The little rubber seals on the bearing cap may be passing some oil.
  2. Sam Buchanan's post in '48 P15 Driver Door Window Frame was marked as the answer   
    Just to close the loop, the frame is on the bench masked and ready for paint. The trick for an easy removal from the door is to pop out the front half of the frame followed by the rear half. For some reason I couldn't get it to work the other way, maybe the vent spring wasn't clearing if it didn't come out first. Anyway....problem solved.
  3. Sam Buchanan's post in Refresh or Rebuild? was marked as the answer   
    Listening to the video, the engine sounds good from the passenger (valves) side. But when the camera moves to the driver's side a distinct knock is present. I think valve train noise would be more noticeable on the passenger side, not the driver side. I suspect there is something to do with crank/rods/pistons that is causing the deep knock that I hear on the left side of the engine.

    That looks a lot like the brake tool I designed.....   😉
    Here is a thread about how to use the tool:

  5. Sam Buchanan's post in Supplied with new gas tank - do I need them? was marked as the answer   
    The fitting on top of the tank is probably for a vent and the silver fitting is the vent itself. It would be connected to the elbow with a hose and located significantly higher than the tank. However, if you already have a vented fuel cap you can just plug the vent opening on the tank.
    Yes, there should be a pickup tube in the tank. The gasket should be ok as is but some sealant is ok if that is what you wish to do.

    The tool doesn't need to be made out of heavy-gauge stock, it is just used as a guide. I used a piece of 0.020" aluminum that was handy. Anything stiff enough to hold the shape should work fine.
