    Re: Fibreglass bonnet washer fittings

    On my 1972 Midget they are mounted on the metal cowl. I can't even find a picture of a bugeye that has them on the bonnet, everything I see has them on the cowl. Also, if you mount them on the...
  3. Re: Started adapting the datsun gearbox today

    If I have to clearance the u-joint area when I get around to doing mine I think I'll make a removable access panel. I would think that would make greasing the joint a dream. I am also contemplating...

    Re: Finding Gerard

    You could build your own or have a local fabricator churn out the pieces for you.

    Re: Cut down windshield

    I'm just curious, how are you going to get that thru inspection or is this not a road going car? In PA you'd never get away with the short windshield or the polycarbonate.

    Re: Grinding when shifting into first

    Clutch drag could cause that problem.

    The one on the left is for the smoke screen nozzle, the one on the right is for the oil spray to slowdown the constabulary. Always plan your escape!:eagerness:

    Re: Universal joints

    The driveshaft rotates in a clockwise direction when viewed from the front so be sure the nipple is being squeezed by the driving yoke against the driven yoke.

    Re: Universal joints

    Nipple in the end of the cross not a good idea. Poor balance and road debris can break it off. Whether aimed toward the shaft or yoke is a matter of preference and access considerations but make sure...

    Re: water pump installation

    I don't know either (yeah, no much help there) but I would pull it out anyway for the following reasons:
    1. More room to work.
    2. Less chance of damaging it.
    3. The system is drained anyway.
    4....

    Re: Spedo reading low

    I had this problem 30+ years ago, it was a broken internal cable. It was relatively easy, unhook both ends (speedo & trans), pulled out both ends and replaced the inside.

    Re: how to have music/radio when driving

    Speaking of illegal headphones (please excuse the tangent), I was once pulled over in Kingston, PA for wearing headphones. I was riding my bicycle at the time. When the officer told me it was...
  14. Re: Trying to find an accurate tyre pressure gauge

    I agree that a pound or two higher or lower isn't a big deal as long as they are consistent. Air pressure is just a suggestion, suspension settings, driving style, vehicle loading, etc. varies by...
  15. Re: supporting BE tonneau cover during heavy rains

    Is there a way to add a snap or two on each side, perhaps splitting the run into thirds which would help keep it taut? Or, at the risk of stating the obvious, don't park it in the rain.
  16. Re: supporting BE tonneau cover during heavy rains

    I'm not sure, but if the bugeye has the sockets on each side for the top frame I'd certainly look at fabricating some kind of bow. Perhaps electrical conduit or pvc pipe & fittings. Even if it...
  17. Re: supporting BE tonneau cover during heavy rains

    IIRC there was a 2 piece tubular bar that slipped into the sockets right behind the seats (where the top bows fit) that supported the cover at that point. It also allowed the cover to be taken off...

    Re: 1275 EN40 Crank

    IIRC EN40 was a decent crank, don't toss it. If you don't want it I would take it and do some more research. I only live a few miles from you, I am just outside Bellefonte, PA

    Re: 5 speed install

    Be careful not to change the engine / transmission angle too much. Driveshaft u-joints are not constant velocity joints, if the centerline of the engine / trans unit is not parallel to the pinion...

    Re: Thoughts on a long traffic Light

    If it were me I'd replace the condenser. If it overheats and shorts out, no spark. Cools down and goes back to being fine until the next time it overheats. Condensers are notorious for failing, I've...

    Haven't built one (yet) but as I understand it, it's supposed to be right around the center of the trans tunnel arch. Keep in mind also that stripped down there isn't a lot of weight so the CG isn't...
