So, I guess my sister knows a little something, about something, after all.


Geez Tim, might be worth sending her home with one of those ol' Carter's that been giving you fits.

I just rebuilt the rear spring pack on the Model A, and I used this between the leaves when I put it back together.

I haven't driven it yet but the graphite makes it slick to the touch...and it'll dry  almost immediately...

So if you ever rebuild your spring packs....

Now here is another fun tool...I borrowed this one from a neighbor.

http://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-Micro-CA25-Inspection-Camera-40043/203258908

I think I'd buy one that had picture taking capabilities...

The pic is of the inside of my radiator on the model A..though it looks a little like the Titanic....but you can see that several tubes are blocked.....

Now you can get a little camera on a cord that plugs into your computer or smartphone....I have a cheap one (less than $15) and it works OK. I'm sure there are better versions available.

Here is an example..
