Where would I find an insert to go back to the correct plug? I would prefer to do it that way since the hole is buggered anyway.

Re: DECODING SOME FRAME MOTOR #,S HELP

MoCo did use 'date codes' on the top motor mount Right side.. But only started this IIRC in 1952. But you can check yer frame.. who knows ? There were slight differences in the wishbones... They read like A = January, B= Feb & etc.. and for year 2 = 1952 (providing it's a wishbone rigid)... & etc..

Re: Gas tank rust removal Q

And wow, Billy, do you think the H-D sealer was plugging up injectors? The NightShi f t. Not sure, but the timing is quite a coincidence.. Any loose bits would certainly (at least) be drawn to the fuel pump screen.. The HD Coatings are very good, I personally think the Por15 is better yet,.. I have...

Re: Gas tank rust removal Q

Do tanks really need sealers? If so There's a guy a block away that will do all the dirty work for $45 and If it sags or what ever I can always take it back for a diferent lining. Do OEM tanks have liners? Actually Yes MoCo did coat the tank insides from at least 1985 (possibly earlier) to 2005.. B...

Re: Gas tank rust removal Q

Thank you. Actually, I have some battery acid (sulfuric) left over from filling my battery. Would that be OK vs the muriatic acid ? Also--why no sealer? I use Por15 with excellent results & with the ethanol blended fuels.. It lasts & you can forget about rust.. http://www.por15.com/Fuel-System-Rest...

Re: type of brake fuid in a 1972 servi car rear brake

Dot 3 is standard for your 72 Srv But if you have the clyinders & master apart, I find it a good time to thoroughly flush everything (including brake lines) with de-natured alcohol & switch to Dot 5 Dot 5 is Not Hydroscopic (it does NOT create moisture) as Dot 3 does.. You can NOT mix any different ...

Re: Running hot

Cotten, agreed extra oil does nothing for "a" hot spot in the motor. But living in the land of the sun. An oil cooler is a plus. & Filtered oil is better than un- filtered.
In relation to motor longevity. I suppose it can be considered a trade-off........a worthwhile one..

Re: Running hot

Adding an oil cooler up front w/thermostat will help & add a bit more oil capacity, & cooler oil. Oil filter is additionally a good idea, for 2 reasons, cleaner oil & more oil ... ;D
More oil does help to run cooler.
It can't do it all, but it helps...
my 4 cents........inflation
