Re: Exhaust fix opinions

You can stiffen that up by simply running a weld bead in a small circle in the middle or across it similar to the stiffening beads on the Flowmaster part.

Re: guess that car..........

That may not be a Ford but I'll bet this weeks beer money that it's a almost direct copy. The first Toyota is a 7/8 scale copy of a 1938 Chrysler air flow.

Re: Trusco Box

Toolbox's like that are quite common in Japan. Every site I worked had one for the tools needed for whatever process done in an area. They seem to be well made probably more Craftsman than Snap On....

Re: Pipe bending ??

Use your GJ connections. Have NASTYZEN make you one. Shipping on a roll bar can't cost that much.l

Re: Lets see your pinups

I think that those skiing pictures are fine garage pin ups. The definition of pin up does not say a car must be in it.

Re: Can you identify this bolt ?

Cut the head off a grade 8 bolt and weld it into a small piece of flat bar. The hold down bolt for a tool post isn't a highly loaded fastener.

Re: What would you do if this happened to you?

Don't waste your time on the store owner. Just take your business elsewhere. You have better things to do than try to make decent humans out of scumbag retail clerks.

Re: DIY weld fumes extractor

Nice job. Smart of you to extract the welding fumes at the table level and not suck fumes past the breathing zone.

Re: Finding a fitting?

Those measurements are a close match to a standard 4" steel weld elbow. You should be able to find one at any large plumbing supply store.

Re: Water pump flange rework

Are you boring the hole before reaming? Do you dial in the face of the flange before boring and reaming? Is the hole you're trying to ream run true? Anyof these might cause your problem.

My 1964 MGB windshield has a rubber gasket on the bottom edge. Have you considered using two of these on your wide MGB?

I think it's used to measure valve lift on a MB to set timing.
