The lubing system in many trannies is driven by the input shaft, which is not moving when you tow. The output shaft is moving and lots of surfaces are sliding on one another without lubrication. A. B

About two years ago I though I'd do my '52 TD a big favor and have the head rebuilt. Among other things, compression was spotty and there was a lot of oil going down the valve guides. Among other can

Yep. Yep. Make a decent gasket for the cap of the unit and seal it in with Permatex #2, the old smelly brown dried-moose-dung stuff. It is resistant to gasoline, unlike virtually every other sealant

The process is as you describe and the outcome is generally pretty good. Cold repair (drilling and plugging) is good for water jackets, but adds little strength to the head. Cast iron _cannot_ be pro

No. The Dreaded Clunk is a common malady. Comes from either (1) worn thrust washers in the diffie or (2) worn spider gears in the diffie. A less likely source is worn splines in the drive shaft. (1)

If the coolant is puddling around the spark plug, there is no way for it to get there from a head gasket leak unless you have discovered the lost lode of upsi-daisium. Twist is referring to weeps dow

It is a pretty sleazy metal, but it is a steel alloy and not pot metal, at least. The reason it doesn't have to be strong is because it is subjected only to compressive forces (under normal circumsta

Actually, if it's stock, the gears are 5.125. My experience is that a reasonable highway cruising speed is about 4500 rpm, which gives about 55 mph, depending on the air in your tires. But you still

In a TD, with the 5.125 rear end, 4500 rpm is 878 rev/min of the rear axle. The wheel radius is between 11 and 12 inches, depending on the tire you have. Let's say it's 12 inches (1 foot), then one g
