Perhaps a brass bore brush could be used to clean any threads without damaging them?

I would imagine something like this chucked up in a handheld drill should be able to clear away rust or deposits.

Yes, I had thought of that but it would be a half-day wasted going clear into town as it's so very rural and far away from even paved roads where I am. Maybe, though, my brother has one as he has about anything! I asked for his help today so I'll also ask him to bring one if he has it. I think a steel brush would be better as and do a better job there is no chance of damaging the block. If he has a stout piece of plywood to lay across the fenders for me to perch on, that would help too.

Update: he just texted back that he has a new unused brush set.

I only suggested brass as that may be a little more gentle on threads.

Although I didn’t work on the car itself today, I did borrow my brother’s rotary wire brush set. I also found a couple old studs laying around but they too appear to be the rolled thread type and no way to run a die nut on them due to the hardness of the material.

What I did do was to make a platform which should help some of the work under the hood. I ran out of energy to put in one of the corner supports and I want to also be sure that most of the weight is on the fenders and radiator frame rather than on the area where it is close to the grille. I’ll add a couple c-clamps at the back corners too to be sure it stays put.

I realized a couple days ago that I had accidentally installed a Carter fuel filter into this car when it should have AC so I pulled an NORS one from stock. This one being a bit newer has a replaceable paper filter so my question is, can it be replaced with the original ceramic type along with adding the spring that keeps it pressed upward? I don’t want to open it up and risk damaging the seal so am hoping that someone here might recognize it and know from their own experience.
