"tiniest bit of hesitation/stumbling when punching the pedal from 1/2 throttle." Don't touch a thing. That "quality" seems to be in every Model B. That is why Carters were such a popular replacement. That dude made a fortune selling replacements for ADs. They ...

I don't think you have the right piece of rubber. I sent those back and ordered a different set. The T that slides in is smaller and slides in without any lube. You have to do it with the window out and the inner trim off. Don...

Thanks Pat I was hoping you would jump in again. You and Mike do a great job of making this thing work. Bring the tickets but I don't think we will need them. We lost our door prize sponsor. So will have very few for the give away. And if you have anymore Stovebolt business cards...

So, I installed a cutoff valve on the top hose running between the heater core and the thermostat housing. When it is open, my temperature gauge indicates that the temp rises as the engine warms up, and stops at 180° when the thermostat opens. When the valve is closed, the temp ...

I just finished my install. I pressed it in all the way around. Tried to slide it but didn't think it was going to slide through the corners. My method was to use a flathead screwdriver. If you press the rubber in with the screwdriver at an angle that is around 45 degrees to the...

Yes, I like the valve cover, too. I hope to one day be at a show with Carl and his truck when someone asks if that is original, I expect Carl will have some clever answer, and I will try to segue off into another BS story about that engine. No matter what, it sure looks nice a...

Hey all, first post in a while. As the title says I have 1961 C20. I want to get all the benefits from a newer front end I can get, the PS, PB, 5 lug hubs, disc brakes etc.. so I want to swap a 73-87 front end on it. And maybe down the line a 5.3 V8 to replace the 235. Anyway I...

After looking at it this afternoon, I think the inside door handle should push forward to open. Is that correct? There is a tab on the 6 inch or so wide brace that spans the door and holds the latch/lock and inside handles. I'm thinking that is to keep the door handle from being ...

I have no idea, guessing late 50s early 60s? Also, as Tim mentioned above, the other thing to consider, someone could have replaced the lifters at any time over the last 40 or 50 years, whether that be with solid (mechanical) or hydraulic....

I've been known to use a step stool and a piece of plywood about four feet long and 18" wide to help me do under-dash work, or even take the seat out if I'm going to be there awhile. For some reason, it's a lot harder to get a 70 year old body under a dash than it was 40 ye...

My 55.1 3600 w/235 & 4spd is very happy at 45. I've had it at 55/60 or so, a time or two. I was more bothered by the poor handling than the high rpms. But, 45 is the sweet spot - engine, transmission, suspension, steering & old fart driving are in tune and smiling....

Stovebolt engines don't have wrist pin bushings- - - -the have a split end and a pinch bolt that is torqued to lock the rod and the wrist pin together. A loose wrist pin to piston fit is usually indicated by a "cluck- - -cluck- - - -cluck" noise at idle that lessens in...
