Re: Re assembling rear end of my Dexta

Hi Mervyn, that's what I would do if it was mine. I had the other side of my trumpet off and renewed the gasket with no problems. It's a heavy bugger so gets some help.

Hi Ben, she looks stunning, even without her bonnet. I like the roll over protection and would love to see some pics of how you made it. I've been thinking about making one for mine. Beautiful landscape and sheep, now all you need is a good sheep dog to go with all that. Wow, I wonder how long it to...

Re: Ford to close its Australian Manufacturing Plants

Do they really still make a Falcon? They haven't made any of those over here in the states for years. I liked the ones in the 60's the best.
Sorry to hear about the closure and all those people losing there jobs, that sucks!

Re: Should dynamo get hot when running? and oil leak pic

When I overhauled my engine some years ago, I left out a bolt in the back between the injector pump and the block. It's hard to see, but you can feel with your hand to see if you got them all back in. It sounds like your gasket may be bad from what you say about having it out recently. I thought I'd...

Re: Doris NP Super Dexta rebuild

Nice thread on the rebuild of another old Dexta girl (Doris). You might try the caustic soda on your head. I had mine cleaned with this at the local Machine shop, block to. It did wonders for all the gunk inside the little holes and hard to get to areas. Keep up the good work, will be keeping and ey...

I added a shut off valve to mine. As for the injector pump you would be money ahead if you took it to a specialist, not just anybody can work on those.

Hi naildriver, you sure don't want to overheat you Sdexta, after all your hard work and money spent. I don't know where your location is so it would be hard to say where you could get a new one.

Re: Radiator Cap

Ben, I have a 1959 and it has the AC 4lb cap with the washer, it was loose like yours before the overhaul, but I glued it back to where I thought it was originally. It hasn't given me any problems so far.
