Re: Still no Tom

Tom, I bet with 27,000+ posts you figured you could take a two month sabbatical without the threat of anyone catching up? :)

Re: 1953 Ford Sunliner cannot start

If so, I hope the mouse piss hasn't corroded anything internally. Pull the intake and see what you find.

Re: holding a car until spring

Or just leave a simple $100. If something bad goes down your only out of $100.00. I have done this before.

Re: Fuel Pump

Re: Fuel Pump

The issues with the reproductions, for me, are the spring tension and the rubber diaphragms are not ethanol resistant. The ethanol resistance is a very important thing. If you contact any of the two...

Re: Fuel Pump

If you want the correct 1940 fuel pump it's the style on the left. The glass bowl type is '42-'53. Having said that there are even more little differences that truly make it a '40 pump. Most folks...

Re: 40 Engine

Ron is right on about the cam. Don't just start making modifications without understanding all the other consequences of that modification. I know this from personal experiences.

Re: Frame value??

I'm not trying to sound snide, but in that condition and having been welded on. It's not going to bring a lot of money. It has some value to the right person as has been stated. I just don't see more...

Re: 39 coupe radiator

Speaking from my experience, you will find much improved cooling having the radiator properly cleaned. It should be worth your efforts.

Re: 1940 pickup in New Jersey

Kube,

You're outta your mind, preparing a car to drive.....just kidding of course. Enjoy the ride. You'll enjoy putting a smile on the face of everyone who gets to see you driving it.

Re: Old cars

Barrett-Jackson is garbage. I haven't watched that s**t show in years. It's all TV hype and fantasy.

Re: 1938 ford pickup front sheet metal assy

You likely won't find any diagrams on how to assemble the front of a '38-'39 pickup. I could not find any when I did mine. I had to piece it together like a puzzle and it can be very tricky to line...

Re: Starter hums will not turn engine over.

I would check the ground. If the ground is bad you will have the problems you indicated. Run a jumper cable from the battery to the frame and see if the starter motor will turn over.

Re: didn't use Permatex Thread Sealant when installing heads

Randy,

I have built a few flathead V8's over the years. I experience this problem to a degree with every one. I would first use Kube's method. What you have going on is normal so don't panic.

Re: Another reason the hobby is dying out

Contact vendors like Michael Driskell at 3rd Gen Automotive or Fred Willner (barnfind08). Good guys that deal in NOS parts, reasonable prices and shipping.

Re: 1911 project

I'm looking forward to seeing this T as it goes back together. I've also wanted a T in a touring car or an open pickup.

Re: OK! Let's get personal!

You should have started a poll.

I'm 38.

I've owned my Model A since I was 18. Now I have several V8 Fords that have been added to the collection.
