I've had the differential apart on a '54 Chevy Station Wagon, and unless there's bronze in the roller cages, there isn't any yellow metal in them. It was a long time ago, though.

The first run out. Things could have gone a lot better LOL. I think it’s a fuelling problem but need to investigate this further. Could be the tank is full of rust blocking fuel lines.

Well Hello again everyone. I’m going a bit of piste today with two videos showing the recommissioning of an old Lucas Ahooga horn and installing it in the Chevy. It may not be original equipment but it’s still fun.

Thanks for watching Regards Chris

This time I’m going off topic slightly to investigate a fault with the Petronix ignition system. This video is about looking at the spark gap and how it effects the primary currents. Later I will be updating the system to the Petronix 2.

Watch part one here:
