Re: Starter Ring Gear Replacement...INFO

Carefully drive the ring gear off, heat it with a small torch, until really warm and flip it over and reinstall on the fly wheel or torque convertor, as it cools it shrinks back to size. Yes it's that easy

Re: Faulkner gets a Redo

Just an old mechanic trick... I found that sealing the pipe thread into the pot-metal fuel filter top, I paint the brass threaded part with old fashion nail polish and assemble immediately do not over tighten, some strange reason this has worked for me every time. even with todays corn-gas.
