Re: Possible alternator noise

Block off the alternator hole, connect the alt wires, start it up and see if the noise has gone away. That will narrow it down to alt or tower gears.

Re: fig SUPERBLEND BEARINGS

Re: Crankshaft bearing shields: an option?

No. Dry as a bone. Shields and seals don’t stop oil from passing/weeping through the bearing. Seals are mainly for keeping dirt out and grease in place. If the bearings and seals are not Russian...the leak is probably due to crank or other alignment/tolerance issues.

Re: Crankshaft bearing shields: an option?

You don't need to notch anything. Pull one shield and leave the other alone. I did this on both crank bearings 150-200K km's ago. It don't hurt sh#t.

Round in chamber, cocked and locked (safety “ON”) just like a 1911.

Re: Browning Hi Power

Yep. Bought them the same day they arrived at the gun shop almost 30 years ago. All tucked away NIB. With my luck, all worth less than what I paid for them :D

Van, remember what I told you in the beginning. Do what makes you content. Minimal stress. Tend the farm. Pet the pups for me.

Re: ex. pipe leaks at cylinder head

Just use red Permatex. Slather a thick bead on the i.d. of the head and another thick 1/4”-1/2” bead around the o.d. of the pipe. Tap the pipe into the head with a chunk of wood and hammer. Use your finger to wipe the excess, pressing lightly into the gap between pipe and head. Shouldn’t look pretty...
