Re: Sean's '59 Panel

OK, the dry run went great, let's do the real deal. I miked everything and it was great but Plastigage tells the real tale. It's a thin plastic thread that's bolted in between the bearing and the crank and how much it "squishes" out tells what the clearance is. The rods were all right on target, bet...

Re: '65 Standard

I've been really busy at the shop but haven't posted much, just completed 70 hours of stuff on a '68 Vette but that doesn't belong here. Jim's Custom finally got my tranny done so I picked it up at the show Saturday. It needed the normal stuff, a couple of synchros, 1st gear, bearings, etc. I'm spli...

Re: 1957 Oval

Sean didn't need the step stud, his exhaust stud merely unscrewed, it didn't pull the threads out. I cleaned things up and screwed the stud back in. :roll: The cooler, on the other hand was done. A quickie air test showed a big hole rotted through it and would have been pouring oil out. The hole was...

Re: 1957 Oval

In my experience, if the cooler is wet it's the cooler as airflow won't bring oil upwards if the seals are leaking. If you want to bring it out we can do a hillbilly pressure test of it. I'd change the cooler and probably the tranny shaft seal too. If it's the same as later trannies I should have it.

Re: Erie Kai June 28, 2020

That's mine, I was at Mid-Ohio in the morning for the vintage races and entered their car show. There wasn't time to go back to Cle and get the bus so I took the Vette to Erie Kai. Probably drove it about 200 miles yesterday. :mrgreen:

Re: 76 Westfalia Sweet Pickle

Nice job, the work looks excellent! You have a compression fitting in the hard brake line going to a caliper in a photo above, those are not safe on brake lines and probably not legal. Please replace the line before driving anywhere and inspect the rest of the lines for sub-standard repairs. There's...

Woodward Dream Cruise 2020

Hey Guys: On the official website it shows all sponsored public events have been cancelled. I've been going to this almost 20 years and feel 95% of the events are car guys cruising and attending so most of what I want to see is not a "sponsored" event. I'm keeping my hotel reservations and might jus...
