Riki,

Let me know, I might have a 45 degree cutter vs a stone.

Riki,

You could use a valve seat cutter with a 45 degree cut angle. Might have to machine a bushing to fit in the opening and proc=vide a center for the pilot on the cutter.

Riki,

I have been using LabMetal which is an air hardened aluminum epoxy to build up the eroded areas.

1938 Senior Headlight bucket stamping detail

After I got my headlight buckets back from media blasting I noticed that the buckets were stamped with

FLEX BEAM
HEAD LAMP
The lettering is on either side of the chrome strip on the top of the bucket.
FLEX and HEAD are on the left side and BEAM and LAMP are on the right as you are standing in front of the car looking backwards.

I just cut them off on a lathe. It is important to use 1.5" od TUBING as 1 1/2" pipe is larger as it goes by ID size.

Here is where they go on the cover and the block. An O ring goes over the tube between the two sections

I need to replace the transfer tubes that go from the timing cover to the block. I destroyed the original ones getting them out.

On the left is one I made out of 1.5" stainless tubing, the middle is out of very thin aluminum and the one on the right is the original steel.

I decided to go with the stainless as it wouldn't degrade like the aluminum one would.

Starting on body stuff. Just got the headlight pods back from the media blaster. Got to love that California Sheet metal.
