'58 165 restoration

Postby 210 flyer » Sat Mar 06, 2021 9:29 pm

Hi! I'm a new member that needs some info. on restoring my Hummer. Do the cyl. head and the lower end get glass beaded, and if so, does the cast iron cyl. get painted and with what type of paint? Also, haven't been able to find the title, and was wondering if you can still get titles out of state like you could years ago? Thanks in advance for any help. Tom 210 flyer ( P.S. Do the transmission and clutch cases get painted or buffed?)

Unless you are set on doing the engine work yourself, I would recommend contacting Charles (Mutt) Hallam < pigstye13@aol.com > He is a Master Craftsman in all aspects of the work required. Without the proper tools and good knowledge of these small engines they can be a nightmare. He can also answer most all your questions,
