  1. If you are an odd ball, then I am too. My daughter was looking for a particular late model Subaru. She did a lot of online research but I insisted we go in person. The first one we looked at, that she was ready to buy from online only research, looked good but on the test drive the suspension and drivetrain felt very loose, maybe a lot of off road use. The next one was tight, felt like it was never abused. She bought the second one and is still happy with it 2 years later.
  2. This is how I browse the forums, maybe this will help some, maybe just confuse things more, but here goes: I am on a windows PC using Chrome browser, this probably works on many other machines and browsers, probably not on some. I go to the main forum page and scroll down to the sub forum I want to see. Then do a right mouse click, open in new tab. For example right click, open in new tab on 'Not Mine Automobiles for Sale'. I then click on that tab that just opened, and view individual threads of interest in the same way, by right click, open in new tab. When

  8. Thanks for all the replies!
  9. It is 16.5 inches long, the hex opening turns a 3/4 inch nut or bolt head. There are no markings. Is it a rim and tire tool? Is it specific to certain years/makes/models? Thanks.
  10. I made a bracket today, it's installed and woking fine. Thanks again!
  11. I am missing the front bracket for the Transmission Selector Shaft Lever Spring. This is for the front spring, at the transmission, it looks like it mounts on the driver's side lower bell housing to transmission bolt. According to my part book, it is group 4.121 Bracket, Transmission Selector Shaft Lever Spring part 1309663 1939-40 (LHD) Front left. See attached image of figure 7-10 from the shop manual. Does anyone have any good pictures of one, with dimensions, so I can make one? Or even better, have a spare to sell?
  12. Thanks for all the replies. I heard about it quite a few years ago from a local older gent. Maybe it was something he did or learned about years ago when there was actually a different underlying cause of blocks cracking. As stated above, another myth disproven.
  13. I have heard that some solid motor mounts should be left a little loose on some early cars because the frame can flex, causing the block to possibly crack. Is this correct and if so, what are the specific recommendations? For example which years does this generally apply to, how many motor mount bolts should be loose, and how much should they be loose?
  14. I had the same question a few years ago. See the replies to this thread: When I was in there I greased them just to be sure, installed new outer seals, and left the old inner seals thinking a little leaking from the inners can't hurt. It's been ok for 5 years so far.
