"When took the engine out last year, i discovered the incredible hulk had done up the nuts on our car.
In the end, I undid the mounts at the engine itself. I found a swivel thingy, long breaker bar and swearing at it helped. I did have to dick around…"

"My old Falcon work van some mornings, has a lifter rattle. I just turn it off and restart it immediately and MOST times its gone.

Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.
The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
