    The reflector coating is vacuum metalising, not chrome.

    Stuck/Sticking Thermostat?

    Maybe it’s the turbo hanging of the side of mine warming it up quicker.

    Stuck/Sticking Thermostat?

    It’s something I learnt from my old man who is a “ older mechanic “. 1/8 hole in the main flange. and to answer the question from Mr Polson, I find it warms up a little quicker and more evenly.

    Stuck/Sticking Thermostat?

    I always snip off the jiggle pin and just have the hole, and make sure it’s at the top, helps bleed the air out, and allows constant water flow so you don’t get spikes and troughs in the temp.

    I’m looking at fitting Roller Rockers to my missus’s 351. Yella Terra street terra, but would adjustable be better than non? looking at a possible cam change later on, if that makes a difference.

  12. Its funny, when I see people here and on FB asking for parts like these, my first thought is, “ha, didn’t realise they were that hard to come by, I’ve got half a dozen sitting in the shed”, but things like lip spoilers, I got when you could get them for $10, now, I just feel glad I’m not trying to build a car now days.
  13. You call it hoarding, I call it, having spares of parts that you can’t get anymore.

    Cutting the water pump on 250 crossflow

    I’ve done it, on the car, no issues in years, but went slow. but why don’t you just buy the non viscous fan water pump?
