Heretofore, I will NOT answer any mechanical question. I am not qualified and can only offer speculations. You are better served by others that are true Techs. With that being said, please only ask about parts and locating obsolete Auto Parts. Thank you. I have the ability to locate quite a few mechanical parts for American made vehicles fron the 1900`s to present. Some are OEM and some are aftermarket. This would include engine, brake and chassis parts. Body parts and trim are VERY difficult to find but you may inquire. If you need assistance in repair, I have illustrated books for major American manufacturers that show some illustrations BEFORE 1974. If needed, I can supply repair manuals for your specific vehicle. PLEASE REMEBER I'M A PARTS SPECIALIST, NOT A TECH!! Thank you.. Skip

Past/Present Clients

Too many to list but they run from Europe through America and to Australia.

What do you like about this subject?

I love cars. I like to see the old ones on the road being used. NOT trailer Queens. Drive 'em. Enjoy 'em.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Teach people that an old car is not necessarily a poluter.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

A lot of what is on a street car was derived from race cars... seat belts, side view mirrors and so on..

Prashant,    I told you "I will admit that Fuels are not my expertise." I will offer these thoughts:  1. Why do we need so many different fuels? The expense, at a gas station, to offer many different fuels

Prashant,    OF Course they can. Some of the fuels need to be in a compressed form, you probably have seen it as CNG fuel. Over here, Methanol is used as a racing fuel. Ethanol is added to gasoline for

Prashant,    Don't kid yourself. ANY fuel will burn and there is ALWAYS a risk of fire. While CNG will burn easier, I have seen a LOT of 18 wheelers (over the road trucks) in crashes, burnt to the ground
