Not sure what brand that flapper disc is, but some are great, and others wear out quickly! I love them, but it's hard to buy great ones! Seems like even the American made discs are not what they used to be for me.
What brand is the one you have?

Ditto on the Norton Blaze, at least the orange 50 grit Rolocs.


Those Blaze flap discs are in Norton's industrial (not automotive) catalog and sound like they are ceramic-based.

Our re-engineered Norton Blaze R980P ceramic flap discs with their improved Y-weight polyester backing and better base adhesion, have exceptional grain retention resulting in 30% longer life our original Norton Blaze discs. Highest Productivity Lowest Total Grinding Costs. Last 50% to 200% longer than any flap disc on stainless steel, cobalt, chrome, inconel, titanium and other hard-to-grind materials.

I will give it a try, this one is SERIOUSLY impressive. I don't know if I got it at HF or my local hardware store. If it's HF I am going to buy a box of them!

If he hasn't got his act together by 46, he never will. Too late to have that life changing moment that would change him now. I think your idea may be the only life changing moment that would work.

Once I was done with the hitch, I needed a panel for the electric plug. None of the ready made ones would work for this application so I took a page out of John L's book and bent a piece of 20 gauge sheet.



Used a hole saw and self drilling screws to mount the receiver plug.



Quick trip thru the blasting cabinet.



Painted it with the same paint as the hitch and put it on.



MANY hours later of getting all the wiring together, I now have a functional hitch with electric brakes and 12v power to charge the on-board battery going down the road. This is what all the work has been for...going to Kool Deadwood Nights next week....

hmmmmmmm... maybe they don't make them for auto body anymore. I recall buying a couple singles at the local paint supply place. He's also the guy that got me turned onto the blaze rolocs. We never looked back since. the only drawback is they aren't flexible with your 1" backing pad. I like to have two die Grinders one with a 3" and one that flexes, and those don't flex very well, but they are awesome anyways.

That will be grear this fall TMP. I like it a lot.

A buddy of mine gave me a 1 inch thick piece of Phenolic material so I made a spacer for the flathead in the roadster with the help of another friend.



I also finished welding up the a pillar mounts for the BelAir conv. It has been a long time since Rusy didn't have a jack stand under one or both of the A pillars.

Car looks great sitting on all 4 paws without help....

Is the spacer a heat insulator or "performance" part...

Yes it is for insulation. Last month the car did not want to start hot. I ordered a new intake gasket, carb kit and made this insulator. I am also going to block off the heat risers.

I really want to drive the car to my buddies church show saturday and to the Sonic on Monday. Then I am going to tear it down. It shouldn't be a big deal with the flathead but I am going to go ahead and adjust the valves while the intake is off.

Do you think it is vapor locking after getting hot or starving for fuel to keep it from starting

I boughta electric boost pump from car quest Tuesday it only runs 2.5 to 4 psi so I can run it in line with my stock pump

,i am also running a return line with a 4 psi regulator in the return line to keep the pressure at 4 psiif it tries to go above that anount the regulator will open to keep from over feuling the carbs since the holleys will unseat the needle off the seat if above that,

don't remember which carb you have I think wcfb carter ,as I renember they had well plugs under the bottom like a Qjet that would leak the fuel into the intake after turning off engine hot ,somestimes flooding the engine or leaking the fuel out the bowl would have to turn the engine long enough to fill bowl before it would start,

Just a thought,,might not have any to do with your problem,,

Nothing on the truck tonight other than a little planning. I cleaned up the Gran Sport for a great local show that I enjoy in a little old town near by. So it's all spiffed up and we are ready for the sun to come up tomorrow. Then I am off to my daughter-in-law's 30th birthday party.
