Looks like a brake shoe rivet press that you hold in the bench vice ,pretty similar to the eyelet press too.

X2, likely used to secure friction material to a backing (brake, clutch, etc.). The actual name of it is a "Hand-Operated Tool" although it could be used for any number of punching/riveting operations.

Yep, you guys got it. It's a "Brak Fix" repair kit. Next time your at your NAPA store just ask them for some lining for your shoes and don't forget the rivits!

You have to guess the answer to a question first then you can ask one. But i think it was in 55 for the first production V8.

Trivia Thread

Now Cobalt327 you know I would not use a trick question this is so good that you are going to love it. We all know when Chevy came out with the 265 ci. engine in 1955 it saved the Corvette fron extinction, changed street rodding forever and helped Chevys sales to sky rocket.
This is a new thread so I don't have to answer anything correctly to ask a question.

With all due respect Garrel, this isn't really a new thread- it began in '08.

Usually how the trivia thread works is, first a guy correctly answers a question before anyone else. Then the guy who correctly answered the question gets to ask his own question.

Actually it's a very old thread started back in 08. and how we do it is answer the question first with the correct answer, then you can ask a question.
But it really don't make me any difference how you do it. I was just trying to tell you how the game is played that's all.

We have to add a new rule to this thread. It is so darn fun but it goes dead often because the last person who answered correctly goes awol, OR the last person asked such a hard question that no one got it.

I don't know how we can do this without a vote or something. But I am thinking if the thread goes dormant for 24 hours, it's up for grabs to anyone who wants to ask a question.

Maybe longer, 48 hours? I think 24 is plenty. I am thinking something very defined like 24 or 48 hours because you simply look at the time of the last post and it's yours when exactly that time passes, no complaining, done deal it's wide open for a question exactly 24 or 48 hours later to the minute.

What do you guys think?

Brian

Trivia threag

My apologies to everyone, I picked up midstream on the thread and I didn't read the rules so I jumped the gun and posted and it wasn't my turn. I do have another question though is it my turn after whom ever I ran in front of goes?

I have had several request from members that have followed my landspeed racing exploits wanting to hear the results of the inaugural Ohio Mile, rather than it be buried deep in a thread would it be appropriate to start a thread with my story even though it would be short lived, opinions?
