  1. I'm just completing engine block repairs probably caused by age and overheating and would appreciate some opinions on the thermostat. This is the flathead block with just the head area water cooled. Ive taken it out and tested it and it works fine but my Mechanic suggests I leave it out permanently and warm the engine by remaining stationery for 5 minutes. His theory is this will ensure I won't get any overheating problems in the future. The car is mainly used for short journeys but might well be used for slightly longer journeys in future. The Jury is out....opinions please
  2. i am working on a 1928 buick master six and i need to get the thermostat rebuilt does anyone know where i can get this done i need to know as soon as possible.
  3. So my car overheated this morning. And I popped the radiator and it was bone dry. I just did a thermostat on it last week and filled the coolant all the way up? Wtf? I have had the car for 6 months and previous to replacing the thermostat my old one was stuck open and the car never warmed up all the way but I NEVER had an issue with my radiator being bone dry. I'm pissed. I didn't replace the thermostat gaskets because the autoparts store gave me the wrong one but the old ones appeared to be fine and there is no visible coolant leak from around the thermostat housing. Could it be evaporating? Bad head gasket? I also replaced my radiator cap with the thermostat. My first step was to buy the right gasket and replace it even though there is no visible leak. Other than that I was gonna see if anyone on here had any ideas????? Help please this is my Daily driver.
  4. is there a thermostat and gasket i can get from a local store for my 37 plymouth sedan? i'm sure stant has to make one. the only other one i've found is from the andy biernbaum site... and that's $20! and apparently he doesn't even have gaskets, either. maybe someone can supply me with stant (or similar brand) part numbers that i can order from a local store. also, the fuel pump. is there a rebuild kit for it? i'm not sure of the condition of mine since i haven't even tried to start the car yet (it's been sitting for 2 years and i just bought it). i'm sure i'll need a bowl gasket, but i guess that's fairly easy to find. plydo has new pumps for $75, but i'm putting enough money into it right now as it is. i've also heard that 6v electric fuel pumps are not recommended. opinions? and what's a good way to clean out the fuel system before starting it? i'm already going to rebuild the carb and wash out the gas tank with fresh gas.
  5. I want to change out the OEM thermostat and install 180 degree one that is recommended on the site. However, I have not found a thread that details how one actually reprograms the chip. Is that information available or must it be done by a professional?
