Do Lipton Tea employees
take coffee breaks?

If a word is misspelled
in the dictionary,
how would we ever know?

As this edition of the 300 "e" news hits the air, the weather outside signals the end of 2013 car activities for many folks. Fortunately there is plenty to do while the Brutes are garaged, and many events to anticipate in 2014. If you didn't get to as many car related activities this year as you would like, take a look at the Events section and plan now to attend.

This newsletter is for you. Let us know what you'd like to see. Your opinions are always welcome and you can click here for the feedback form.

Feature Stories
Blasts From The Past
From newsletters of the 1970's and 80's, here are stories that haven't seen the
light of day for years and deserve another look.

Tech Articles

F-G-H Turn Signal System
Restoration and Dyno Test 300K Engine
An old "tried and true" procedure handed down from mechanics of old....
Before installing a thermostat, insert an "Aspirin" tablet or equivalent in the thermostat to hold the it open while filling the cooling system. This allows the trapped air to escape. Once filled, and you start the engine, the tablet slowly dissolves allowing the thermostat to operate normally.
I found this trick especially useful on the 55-58 era style engines which have that horizontal bridge pipe between the cylinder heads...easy to trap air there.

We are always looking for new technical articles.
