Re: water hose

There's usually a trans cooler in that line. I'd try to get someone to remove it intact and match it up at an auto store. Ditto the front hose that goes from the oil cooler to the water pump.

PS: You'll probably need to cut off excessive hose on the one you find that's close as you can get.

Re: Marine Sealant

3M makes a sealant (I think it's called 5400) that doesn't death grip like 5200.

Re: reverse rotation engines

If that's a single screw, they usually are reverse rotation.

Re: reverse rotation engines

Right! Forgot about that. The assbackwards gear is on the oil pump driving shaft.

Thanks for cluing me in.

Re: reverse rotation engines

Okay, but they HAD to have different gears to work properly.

Re: reverse rotation engines

..."Btw the gear on that distributor is exactly the same as the other one."

Then how does the cam rotate it and the oil pump the other direction?

Re: reverse rotation engines

Good one.

That reminds me of J C Whitney catalog items that promise to save X % of fuel. If you add a bunch of them, all together, gas would have to flow out the tank!

Re: Main Station Lower Helm Restoration nearly complete...

I hope you have a nice, strong plate under the floor to brace that pedestal!

Does this look the same as the normal rotation distributor?
