  1. I enjoyed your fun and entertaining video! Other than never liking red silicone sealant your video was 100% awesome๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for posting and let's see more!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
  2. The only thing that bothered me was that awful nasty red silicone sealant. Could have at least used black.
  3. Another tidbit.....Vacumn type Vacamatic. The trans shown has the six sided shift diaphragm. Later builds were updated piston type shift.
  4. Definitely if the pump cover shows signs of leaking replace the oil pump cover gasket....a square profile rubber O- ring. Don't let the outer rotor pump gear fall out. The smaller inner rotor gear cannot fall out. The outer rotor gear needs to stay assembled exactly as is...meaning you could put the rotor gear in face up two ways. Those two gears have a good wear in pattern ...you do not want to change it....otherwise possibly causing slightly lower oil pressure.
  5. I'd use your old one...it will not fail. New chinese will. I would not even take it apart unless sludgy.
  6. Washington used the engine number at least thru the middle 50's.
  7. Sometimes a very hard part to find OE. Just use an internal snap ring using 90 degree snap ring pliers.
  8. Looks like this....sometimes I've seen just the ring portion in the groove of the torque shaft. I think because the "ears" of the clip are broken off.
  9. A retaining spring clip fits in a groove of the torque shaft on the frame side of said shaft.
  10. Old jeeps, AMC cars..really old AMC Ramblers and a host of other cars and trucks had tapered axles. Brake shops and regular repair shops had these drums off quickly...no fooling around...good tooling ...knowledgeable mechanic. Get'er done....the customer needs their car next day. Diy'er newbies might take a week or more for some to get two drums off. Just the way it goes first time. I started on these type drums and axles when I was sixteen. Never waited for them to pop. I got them off just like the old guy up the street did them. He had a pretty good s
  11. I started having rotating pic issues about two months ago. Using the cell phone pictures and also using pics stored on my win 10 desktop. Never ever had an issue. Anyway I would edit/ rotate ..do a small resize and save it. Come here to post the pic...it would end up sideways, upside down...crazy!!!! Read on this issue endlessly. Exif data on and on. Finally out of frustration I post pic....delete it... re-post it and then magically it posts properly. These can be pictures I have posted on this site with no problems before. Anyway I will try to get the p
  12. Don't be cheap on an auto darkening helmet...that's your eyes it's protecting.... I looked, talked a lot to welder supply houses and the guys at the welding shop before I bought one. I've had my helmet now for over 15 years and no issues at all. It cost me $450.00. Oh yeah $$$$... but to me it was worth it. As for welding inside....nope.. I do it all outside...sparks run 20+ feet. Don't want a fire. Read too many stories on welding sparked fires in the garage.
  13. Hylomar....re-useable, expensive, for close fit applications like machined case halves etc. I've sealed leaks on valve covers no one else could. Goes on super thin...great sealant. Ultra grey like Honda bond another wonderful gasket "maker"...on and on just like which oil should I use... But dry gaskets don't leak either in the right applications. You pick....better not leak!
  14. Are ya sure you are not trying to get rich? That's your name !๐Ÿ˜
