      Oh Pat, that's easy. It's a seal installer tool.

      It does look like a Seal or Expansion plug driver of sorts...

    Valve guide removal tool!
    by DaWizard
    Ok, who has an extra valve guide removal tool?

    I went through all the drawers in my tool box and it appears mine has done a vanishing act!

    I did find the ring compression tool, the slimmed down tappet adjustment wrenches, and a couple other tools that I knew I had, but that got shifted around into the wrong drawers, but the valve guide tool is missing.

    I would

    Larger thread studs
    by DaWizard
    Ok, some of you know I have been working on a new engine for my car. Now, in my interweb searching I found some larger thread studs with the 7/16 top thread and a 1/2 thread on block side. Well, I have lost that search location to buy the studs. I have just spent the last hours searching for those studs with no joy.

    How about some help from the folk here?

    I don't know if

    Installing Valve Guides
    by DaWizard
    Since I haven't found this in the engine section, I will pose the question here and Mitch can move it too the proper thread when it is answered,

    To the engine rebuilders.

    How do you install the new one piece valve guides if they are loose or just not a real tight fit?

    Do you do the same for the two piece guides?

    Rebuilding fuel shutoff valve
    by wrndln
    I have some 28/29 fuel shutoff valves that look decent. I took one apart and the tapered part looks pretty good. However it has some very small scratches on it. Looking into the brass valve body also shows some very small scratches. It seems that valve grinding compound would be a little too course, but maybe it is OK to use. Is there something less abrasive to use that would remove the small...

    Valve seat cutter
    by pAAt
    I'm looking at grinding/cutting my valve seats for new style valves. What would be the proper grinder/cutter to buy ? There is also light pitting between the int. & exh. valves. Any help on doing this would be appreciated. Thanks, Pat

    A good Model A tool
    by Mitch
    This is a great tool that every Model A owner needs, to efficiently and easily fish out your broken bendix parts from the fly wheel housing. It has a durable / bendable rod that is 24" long, with a cap on the end which prevents the sides from magnetizing to things when your fishing it down. The cap is held in place by the magnet and then pushes up once it bottoms out. For coming off the snap...

    Annealing Hardened steel
    by Terry, NJ
    As some of you know, I was boring and polishing stock A manifolds for B carburetors. I lost my bore plug, locater pin which I didn't consider really satisfactory. I don't have the access to steel I once had so I have to improvise. I was wondering what I had around that I could use when I saw an old sector gear that I missed on my last scrap drive. Aha! Sez I, and tried in the bore. It fit rather loosely,...

    Crank journal diameter
    by DaWizard
    Well, I guess this could be posted in the regular area, but since I didn't really know, I post here.

    Anyone know the rear main diameter at stock size?

    Seems I remember something about 1.585 but not sure.

    TIA

    Thread size question
    by smittykid
    I have a Snyder's leakless water pump-the sealed unit. Long story short-I boogered up the threads at the tip of the shaft. I wanted to remove the fan blade & pulley(2 bladed alum) as I needed to grind down the end of the housing a little more for clearance reasons. I used the fan removal tool. When i smacked it with the hammer it wasn't square and messed up the threads on the very end of the shaft....
