  • World's Largest Pipe Organ Compared to Vintage Auto

    Yesterday I heard that the world's largest pipe organ has over 33,000 pipes, and this sounded so unreal that I had to Google it. Here's one of many short U tube videos you can watch. I know nothing about playing any musical instrument, and couldn't sing as well as a constipated cow, but this has to be something to hear in person. This one is in the U.S., but the only large pipe organ I've heard in person was when my dad and I toured Germany in 1987 and heard some fantastic pipe organs in the many beautiful cathedrals that Germany has.

    I found it interesting how the man compared this organ to a vintage automobile.

    Any of you old timers remember E. Power Biggs? I never heard him in person, but his recordings of classical music on the pipe organ will send chills down your spine! He was born in 1906 and died in 1977.

        Another Way to Remove the Oil Fill Pipe
        by Tom Wesenberg
        Here's a good idea that Brad had mentioned on the Studebaker site. He used a tail pipe expander inside the oil fill pipe, then connected a slide hammer to the expander to pull the pipe out. The slide hammer can be connected by a short piece of channel iron or square tube with 2 holes. This sounds like a good easy way to remove the pipe, but I'll have to check to see if my expander will fit deep enough...

        Exhaust pipe rattle
        by Dennis
        Does your exhaust pipe rattle at certain rpm? Recently I noticed at certain rpm or when I back off the throttle I get this rattling sound that sounds like it's coming from the exhaust pipe. I know it's not the engine pans, ran without them for a road test. Everything else is tight and when I bump it with the palm of my hand no rattle. If I bump the exhaust pipe after the muffler body I can get...
