General Discussion / Re: Aviation Fuel
« Last post by 69cobrajetrugae2 on Today at 03:53:39 am »
Today, lead deposits from the evil leaded fuel days can't be found in the dirt along Los Angeles county roads and freeways and tunnels.  I find this odd since many of these roadways and dirt berms are original to the 1920's and 1930's.

It's not in the ocean either.

The truth is that the scavengers in leaded fuel grabbed the lead oxide and together they soared into the stratosphere and eventually fell into the ocean where bacteria ate it.

One tidy source of lead is found in the soil around a home that has had the lead based paint scrapped off in preparation for numerous coats of paint.  Where do little kids play?  By the roadway and freeways or around their home?

Today, many water municipalities and their politically inherited infrastructures still use lead pipes to supply fresh tap water.  To save money Flint decided to gift their citizens water from the Flint river. One would ASSUME that they would test the water first but when a politician is strapped for cash, well you know.

Here is a 2002 report about a lead factory and I've attached two picture from said report.

By the way there are 4000 lead factories in operation in the United States according to a 2007 EPA study which are belching millions or billions or trillions of pounds or tons of lead into our air, I can't recall the exact amount but it wasn't chicken feed.  Whatever amount of lead the report said is released into the air in 2007 I'll bet it's on the light side of the real amount.

Unfortunately I cannot access the EPA report at this time either due to the current government shutdown or some other reason.

We've all been brainwashed to believe that using leaded fuel was bad for our health so they phased it out.  But what's weird is that plumbers tasked to replace restricted and leaking galvanized pipes in millions of American homes joined the pipes with 50/50 lead tin solder which is directly exposed to the water flowing to the tap and into our soup pots.  Decades after leaded fuel was phased out 50/50 lead tin solder was still in use until the government finally phased it out and replaced it with 95/5 tin lead solder.  There is still lead in the solder but 5% is better than 50% I suppose.
General Discussion / Re: Hone Overdrive, anyone ever seen one on a CJ car
« Last post by Armond on Today at 02:43:54 am »
So I remembered the other night a good friend of mine who lives locally and is a Boss/CJ owner had told me once that he had sold the KR convert to Nate.  I gave him a call and asked him about the build sheet and what I had read, he said that only the special paint info was in the remarks and that the original paper work from Shelby that I had read had the 2 speed hone drive typed in the information to the car and that he had a letter that came from Mr Shelby that I was not aware of,  That had some info on the car apparently that he had requested.  So I did remember what I read, just not on the Build sheet. So there ya go..

Pulled the trigger and just received it yesterday- in time for its 50th birthday today (build date 01/16/1969). I’ll register it tomorrow when I’ve got more time.

The "Autolite" replica batteries don't last very long and are expensive.  I bought a Motocraft battery 7 yrs ago and it's still going strong.  I keep it on a trickle charge though.

General Discussion / GROUP 24 or 27 "AUTOLITE" Battery

Quick question:

Am I correct that inside a GROUP 24 or 27 "AUTOLITE" replica battery is a regular AGM battery, correct?

General Discussion / Re: flywheel balance
« Last post by 161854 on January 16, 2019, 03:50:17 pm »
Glad to see your problem is fixed.
Something to's not only the flywheel that can cause vibration. The harmonic balancer also must be changed to " neutral" balance. All 428CJ's are externally balanced and the flywheel and balancer must be on the crankshaft at time of the balance work. Unless you have switched to internal balancing, then the flywheel and balancer must also be " neutral". (No weight on flywheel). 
Neutral balance is more for race stuff and high rpm.
Just my .02¢.

  Correction , ALL FE balancers are NEUTRAL  The 410s and 428s are counter weighted in the REAR only! The SCJ has a counter weight on the crank sleeve and a larger ( still neutral) balancer.
