I got a bore scope I have been wanting to buy 1 for years. I thought it was a good idea. I cant get the scope into the cylinder because the cylinder is not under the spark plug hole and it will not bend enough to get it into the cylinder. I also checked the antifreeze to make sure that it was good. the antifreeze was good to -30. I may have to put the car in the back of the garage till winter when things slow down I just hope I don't loose interest till then. I guess I will fill the cylinders with the diesel and atf before I do

the engine is a 1941 super 8 i dont know why but i keep coming across 41s they must have made alot of those. I may check into a bore scope it would be nice to see inside i also thought a valve could have rust on the stem making it hard to open. Nothings ever simple.

super 8 almost stuck

working on a super 8 that was sitting for years big surprise. the plugs on the the back 3 cylinders were rusted pretty bad like water was laying in the area around the plugs. I loosened the spark plugs a turn or so and blew out the rust and junk around the plug before removing them. Soaked the cylinders with marvel mystery oil. I removed the flywheel cover and with a pry bar was able to turn the flyweel with a fair amount of pressure. after a couple days i turned the engine about a half of 1 revolution and its starting to get tight again. I put more mystrery oil in the cylinders. I was going to try and turn it more in a couple of days but i was wondering if i should pull the head off. If i used the starter i may not have noticed the tight spot.

I read that the r11 overdrive is a better overdrive. Would that fit in 1941 160-180 cars? Also what years were they used.

I ran a couple numbers through the vin decoder and I have some questions. The cars were in the collarcityauctiononline website. Item 34 vehicle number 1472-3307. When i put the number in the decoder says outside valid model production sequence. I checked the number it seems correct. Is there a problem with decoder or me. Item 39 vehicle number 1442-2241 . The add says 160 the name on the side of hood says 160 decoder says 180 I noticed the hub caps also look different. Was there a model between 160 and 180?

I may bid on a few of these.But as a guy who has had older cars for the past 40 years i have been noticing that young people dont want them. they want 60s and 70s. cars. And alot of the cars i have are starting to go backwards in value.I see cars all the time on websites that people inherit a nice old car they leave it sit outside till its almost junk and then try to sell it. In another 50 years i wonder how many will survive.

What is the correct way to tell if a 1955 Caribbean has the original engine. Also did they all have summer winter seats or was that an option?
