Re: Fuel pressure regulator

I have the Holley low pressure regulator and it works fine MOST OF THE TIME. But, every so often I have to re-adjust that thing as it seems to have a mind of its own occasionally. Therefore, I...

Re: Bonneville to wet again, bummer

Wow! Damn, I hope the folks who reserved at the hotels will be able to get refunds. Their policies on that suck.

Re: Chevy water pump on flathead

I had this set up on my '36 pickup for a while. It worked OK, but it placed the fan very low on the radiator and I had to use a smaller diameter fan to clear the lower outlets. That engine is an...

Re: back up camara

Re: Head lite adjusting

Wanting to adjust the headlites implies that you plan on driving at night! Are you nuts?!

Looks like I need to call Willie to get some supervision on site.

Re: pressure test 21 stud

I currently only have one 21 stud head for this prospective engine. I have a lead on another in the swapmeet section. So, 21 stud heads are a little more scarce than 24 types so I don't have any...

pressure test 21 stud

Being lazy here and not digging out my pressure test equipment to see if it fits. So, are there enough common stud holes to get a good seal with a 24 stud pressure test block?

Re: 8rt Fan Blade Options?

I have a 6 blade on my '36 and I do not notice it being louder. Man, it moves the air. I cannot get my 8ba with 180* thermostats to run over 178*.

Re: Difference between 8ba and 59ab flywheel

Not sure, but if the starter is the problem, don't the small, aftermarket starters work with either?

Re: G. B. Kurrasch

Ron, Beech 18 has twin tails like B 25's and 24's. I think that is the Songbird. I can see Uncle Sky but not Penny's head.

Re: Looking for a cariature ~~

Chap52, that is some neat history. I related the picture with the Grateful Dead song for obvious reasons when I chose it for my helmet visor. I was trying to be a "wild and crazy" jg.

Re: Looking for a cariature ~~

Do a search for "Keep on Truckin' cartoon". Incidentally, this the guy I had on my flight helmet in the Navy.

Re: Lower radiator hose replacement 1935 Ford do I have to remove the radiator?
