    Why does my 1929 Cadillac ride so poorly?

    Matt, Back in the day when I was turning wrenches on trucks we used a product called DRISLIDE on leaf springs. Bob

    Nice pics Greg. Pic. 1 is a good reason why parallel parking was part of the DL test back in the day.

    X2 on Jon Wright. I took some parts to him, they took pix of them, quoted me a price on the spot. He stands behind his work. Bill was as quoted.

    Removal of flywheel on 1923 Moon Continential engine

    Jan, Take your bearing to a bearing supplier, like motion ind. If they can't match it up, i would have one made out of oilite bronze. The only time the pilot bearing is used, is when the clutch is disengaged and the trans. is in gear. good luck Bob

    Removal of flywheel on 1923 Moon Continential engine

    Jan, Your clutch asm. looks like a Borg&Beck those pins are there so that the pressure plate rotates with the flywheel. they are usually put in from inside the flywheel. You should be able to drive them out with a pin punch from outside of the the flywheel. Should be an access hole to let you do it. You will probably have to rotate the flywheel in order to do it. Be careful when you remove the clutch asm. from the trans. the clutch spring is under a lot of tension. Good luck with your project Bob

    Sleeving a block

    Curti give the people at Devcon a call 1-855-489-7262. that being said, i would be concerned about heat transfer. good luck with your project Bob
  12. bought a spray can of internal frame coating, it comes with a 24" long hose, one end end of the hose goes on the spray can, the other end of the hose has a conical nozzle. u are supposed to push the hose into your boxed frame push the button on the can and slowly pull it out to coat the inside of your boxed frame. everything was going good until the hose blew off of the can. between the back pressure in the hose and my reaction time to release the button, i got coating on my arm, face, glasses, and in my right eye. by the the time i was done rinsing my eye the coating had dried, i had to clean my arm, face, & glasses with solvent. called their tec. hot line and tried to explain that they needed to put a clamp on the attachment point on the hose at the can. they said they were sorry for any inconvenience and be sure to read all safety data on the product. if you are going to use this product PUT A CLAMP ON THE HOSE AT THE CAN bob

    Overheated igntion points

    David, as F&j has said it looks like the key was left on. But it is possible that that the point arm and point contact tip or the point spring to point arm connection is faulty. with a good analog meter check between contact arm & point tip and between the ign. wire mount & contact arm. I would also use a pair of pliers to see if one of the contact points is loose. just my $.02 good luck Bob
