  1. Karr Rubber Manufacturing - California.

    I hope the machinery and molds don't go for scrap!
  2. Karr Rubber Manufacturing - California.

    So someone has 1 day to buy a rubber manufacturing business!
  3. Can you recommend a steering gear rebuilder?

    Your next step is to clean it up thoroughly and do a good visual inspection and free up the adjusting screw. The end cover will allow access to the bearings. It should be refilled with a semi liquid grease upon reassembly.
  4. Artillery Wheels - loose spokes How do you tighten?

    Before I tried water, I would mix up some linseed oil and turpintine very thin and soak in that as it will penetrate and swell the wood, but more importantly it will harden the porous fibers and not just evaporate. New wheels are a good idea also.
  5. But Is It Really A Blight Issue?

    He needs to call an auction house or a junk yard and be done with it in a flash. Or, he could license the ones he can and dispose of the rest. I can see the towns point as he does have close neighbors.

    Have you tried to make adjustments to it yet?
  7. Carb Float Retainer/Spring/Clip

    Tin can, snips, and chisel. Might be an interesting project.
  8. "High" Nuts vs Standard for Cylinder Head

    Usually a head is tightened center out with x cross pattern. Tighten all fasteners evenly in stages of about 15 ft# until around 50-55 #. Re-torque after running a few times.
  9. '26 engine knock

    The Chevrolet engineers were working on new engines, not rebuilding worn, bent & misaligned blocks. Maybe that might explain their ideas and our different takes on the information. I would send my engine to Herm any day.
  10. AC FUEL FILTER GLASS BOWL GASKET/SEAL PART NUMBER

    That is how you become a seasoned restorer!

    Oh ye of little trust, I trust you have been advised correctly!
  12. AC FUEL FILTER GLASS BOWL GASKET/SEAL PART NUMBER

    Are you going to an auto parts store or the hardware store? It is hard to believe an auto parts store doesn't stock the right gasket. Maybe you do need to make your own if so. Even my little town parts house could get the gasket. Where do you live?
  13. AC FUEL FILTER GLASS BOWL GASKET/SEAL PART NUMBER

    Take the glass bowl to the parts house and have them give you a fit. Make sure there is no burrs or cracks on the bowl rim or the housing it fits to.

    I See water pumps but no other information.
