  1. EXCELLENT PRODUCTION, BOB. I was able to get the limited production rear axle bearings from last issue !! Sure look forward to it !!!!!!
  2. I had my 151 tank dipped by radiator co for 2 nights and the NAOH cleaned everything INCLUDING rust ? EDIT>> After NaOH, then rinse with baking soda water mix, then soapy water to final clean, then put in a little diesel fuel and slosh it around, the oily fuel will coat the inside if the tank and keep it from flash rusting! Good shops do the neutralizing only.
  3. I did not have a puller for my 151 wooden wheel so made do. Drill and tap. Fill back with cut-off bolt with screw driver slot. Worked for me ! AND, I AM LOOKING FOR A CORRECT {OR 1/2 CORRECT} LUG WRENCH (3/4"): MESSAGE~~
  4. Unless they have changed; WP won't sleeve with anything else. Their warranty won't allow DOT5.
  5. You will have to send me a message so I can give you a price on it for you to compare with others. It will cost me $20. just to get it cut to send you.
  6. I can send you a rod that you can make 2 pushrods from. Length will be 18". You need a rod 8.1305-8.1205" long + .020" for wear compensation. The rod will be 0.3690" in diameter. This is tool steel and you will need a machinist to cut the correct lengths. Reason I have this is that 2 weeks ago I ordered the min length rod of 36" so that I could make a rod for my 151. Send a message if you are interested.
  7. My windshield has the original inspection sticker so I haven't changed the seals but I have them; whenever!!!
  8. NAME OF THat 'ARTICLE' IS " WINDSHIELD FRAME AND HINGE WEATHER SEALS ". In Q & A. That should definitely do it !!
  9. Just type ' replace windshield ' in search. I did to find.
  10. Paul wrote a lengthy how-to to replacing the windshield rubber & hinge shield in Q&A, Apr 24,2006. Should help a lot.
  11. If someone needs this, you can copy on photo paper and 'glue' to tank or firewall at tank. Orig is 2-1/4" high & 3-1/2" wide
  12. THIS HEATER, #781-B, IS PERFECT. USED IN MANY AIR COOLED CARS AND OTHERS {OVER 2 MILLION SOLD IN 30s, 40s, & 50s}. CONTACT VIA MESSAGE. EDIT: THIS ITEM IS GONE GONE GONE !
  13. Certainly would suggest purchasing this book: Practical Car Restoration by charles wilmarth III The top wood had to be rebuilt as you can see. Believe you would learn and be encouraged. He drove it from the West to the 2002 Trek. VERY interesting. Check Amazon, ebay, etc. the book is available. EDIT: I thought a later post; I need to read date of post. ANYWAY~~~~~~~~~~~ a good read !
  14. On my sidedraft, 151, this way: from the Tee thru between the cylinders, to mech. gage under dash. Was already installed on car. Assume correct, seems to work OK~~~ EDIT: the valve oiler is blocked off. Yes, I will get a lower pressure gage !! Sidenote: have always wondered if oil dipstick, as seen, is suppose to have a wood or plastic handle on it?
  15. Believe they would on a Franklin forum?
