I've learned this too.
A tapered cone. Machine shop supply, precision thin steel, from my FLAPS.
For the record I'm not actually recommending this as a legitimate...
Axle or hub worn? Bottoming out instead of wedging on the taper?
Had a similar issue on '34 Ford and I just shimmed the taper cone with some...
Rebuild the old cylinders? The seal sizes are standardized. We used to hone them and pop new seals in, but not sure if you can still get kits.
Depending on the nature and severity of the screeching, I might try and let it run for a while and see if it settles in. After two years idle, it...
Sometimes a new clutch will drag until it breaks in, make the gears hard to shift at first.
Can you start the engine with the transmission in...
Are you sure you got this straight? Or am I confused?
I have a six hole unit OEM in my '56 F-head, and it absolutely is six volt. Was looking...
I would hope not. Probably break some studs and have have to do more helicoils.
Helicoil insert, or drill and tap everything to a larger bolt size.
Just possibly a longer bolt would still find enough thread deeper in the hole.
Which part is stripped?
Maybe a misalignment in the exhaust pipe is forcing the gasket surface out of parallel contact... ?
You could try bolting it up at the manifold...
Some old timers just used grease on cork gaskets.
If that is really true, you have a serious issue - a bent axle stub, balljoint or king pin bearings that are totally shot, etc.
What is the tank sending unit grounded to? Maybe whatever that is, it is not well grounded itself.
The inner cores are very sensitive to being exactly the right length, and having good tips at each end. Especially if the outer casing may be...
Maybe, but I think you'd be seeing the needle kick if twisted at "finger speed." And he did get action when using a drill.
What else would he say? Not likely to offer a free re-assembly.
But in real life, I'll bet many thousands of engines have been just fine without...
