    Rusty radiator water stains from a concrete driveway?

  • #2
    muriatic acid? that is how masons clean mortar and cement etc. Maybe try a small area. Watch out the stuff is powerful.Not good for eyes,skin, etc. If you have trouble finding it, pool stores have it

      Scrub it with dry sand & a red rubber sanding block. Scrub until your upper lip gets SWEATY!

        Why not use bleach? Well, I can see not using bleach if you have anything other than a natural color driveway, but if it's concrete color, bleach should be less toxic than acid, but not by a whole lot, and just think of the tie die pattern on your work pants that you can generate!!
        You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

        Tomorrow it's Dollar General for the bleach. BTW oil sorb is much cheaper that kitty litter. But don't use it in the cat box, too dusty.

          Nothing would clean my white porcelain kitchen sink until I went to Fleet Farm and bought some Bowl Cleaner. That got it bright white right away.
          When I did the vinegar cleaning on my 28 I made the mistake of draining it on the concrete, and it still has the rust stains.

            Marvel vs Ampco Intake Oilers
            by MikeK
            There is a HUGE DIFFERENCE in operation between the Original patented Marvel INVERSE oilers and the Ampco and other simple knockoffs that feed oil DIRECTLY proportional to engine vacuum. People often confuse the two as similar in function.

            An inverse oiler (Only Marvel oilers) feed less oil when the manifold vacuum is high (cruising, idling) and more when the vacuum is less (accelerating,

            Alternator Magnetism Flashing
            by Bill G
            I had mine sit for about 9 months once and when I started it back up, I got nothing from the alternator. Mine is a NuRex alternator 6v Positive ground. I have no idea what alternator you are running, but at the time, I wrote to NuRex and here is the answer I got back. Once I followed this simple instruction, the alternator came back to life:

            Floorboard Removal
            by DaWizard
            Because it seems I am forever removing the floorboard of my '28 Tudor, and since the webbing around the edge needed replacing, I made the purchase of the webbing kit from a vendor and since I only needed to fix the front, I had some left over and decided to make an "easy pull strap" from the excess. So, the following pictures are what I did to make this pull strap. Because this lays flat...

            The 1920's in color
            by Steve Plucker
            Just saw on the Smithsonian Chanel a program called The 1920's in color (Saw the 1930"s in color last night).

            Great footage BUT originally all this old footage was black and white and remastered into color.

            That being the case..It sure would be great if the Ford Motor Company would reproduce all their old film footage into color!
