I have the MasterCool hydraulic double flare tool, looks similar to the one eastwood sells. It works great every time and is portable. I also have a set of JIC / AN Fitting flare ends for the tool to do braded hose to solid tubing.

I use 303 on my tires and never get any sidewall cracking. Good stuff to block UV.

Al, the 2" you are speaking of, is it the socket length? If it is, there would not be a change in torque amount, Only the perpendicular distance to the faster applies to the torque value.

Texas Chili cookoff: Notes from an inexperienced Chili taster named Frank, who was visiting Texas from the East Coast: Recently I was honoured to be selected as an outstanding famous celebrity in Texas, to be a judge at a Chili cook-off, because no one else wanted to do it. Also the original person called in sick at the last moment, and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table a

Quick question about valve cover, Is the drilled hole cover much better than the half covers? I already have a set of half covers, would it be worth making the drilled versions?

Ken, tried to search you name and rtv and was not able to find the info about where you DO use rtv. Do you have a link? Another question to anyone, I have heard about issues with the top cover leaking over time and "fixes" in the tech articles. How do most of you seal up the top cover so it does not leak. Thanks

Well it is 5 degrees out and -20 wind chill but I still got you a pic (:D My shop is always 65. I have not finished capping off the unused ports with an inverted flare plug (still have to pick them up), but every thing else is done. I used two of the stock bulkhead fittings used in my early, I had several parts cars so it cost me nothing. I used a Raybestos MC36237 ($31 on amazon), wh

Ok, My second question, could I use the 65-69 in an early, any benefit? Can it be turned into a short shift shifter because of the extended bottom compared to the em? I there a link I might have missed?

In my stock of parts I found the shifter on the bottom that I can not identify. Is it a 3 speed shifter, late model, aftermarket? It has flat sides on the shifter rod and the bottom part stick out further and has a different shape.

This just talking out loud, but the only way I can see to raise the rear with out having camber issues (except larger wheels) would to put solid steel spacers between the rear crossmember and the body of the FC. It would require longer bolts to mount the crossmember to the body. Also the mounting of various engine linkages etc would have to be compensated due to the lower crossmember vs body.

Nice Job, once I get my corvair finished, I have a bunch of machines that are surrounded by corvair parts that I need to finish assembling/restoring and a surface grinder is one of them.

If its a thin layer, I doubt that it will affect its function. I have had ones with light rust on non corvair applications that worked fine.
