Cool Another Wrinkle

One of the things we often do is to replace the lower cross support you've shown with a 1/2" pipe to promote better airflow without back-draft effect. The welded ends of the pipe need to be flattened...

Cool Mangled Quite Well

It sure shows some signs of braille parking maneuvers. It also has the lower section of the rad support cut and folded to expose more of the lower radiator to airflow. This must have been an early &...

The asking is quite strong. It will make a worth while historical restoration with someone else's wallet. I'm out . . . .:eek:

Cool Not that difficult, OR

The new cap has the four pins w/raised washers on them I hope. If so, it's just a matter of taking your crooked-ended needle nose pliers and bending inward just two of the 'legs' of the inner...

Cool Raced Pit Repairs

Aged "experienced" race cars are somewhat akin to Geronimo's original hatchet or Trigger's broom. The handles & heads have only been replaced a few times . . . . . . .:P

OK: I'm going to assume that you pulled the cable and there ain't nuthin' on it. In which case you have the original insert type of fitting stuck into the tranny and it's holding what you are...

Cool Leaning Askew You

Check the rear shackles for warp/lean. To a minor point, they can be spread at the top and shimmed left/right with a few washers. Keep it to a minimum.

Cool Opinion Only

The behavior, in my opinion, will be quite similar to other flash coatings and also those composite resin pistons. They will, at some point, bind and drag or jam. There is no substitute for 316...
