Re: Urgent RMV issue for Massachusetts Car Guys

I think it has more to do with the machines that make make the license plates rather than some "computer programmer". They are set up to make them in a sequence, and having to know whether the...

Re: 1936 cabriolet

I'm glad I was drinking beer back then and didn't have to buy any milk!

Re: Pressure-Sealing Blocks

I thought the Belzona video about repairing a crack in a block to be quite interesting.

Re: Urgent RMV issue for Massachusetts Car Guys

"Vanity plates" (like "19Fordy" mentioned) are quite different than YOM plates. You guys that live in states that will alter the sequential numbering of their standard license plates to accommodate a...

Re: Urgent RMV issue for Massachusetts Car Guys

I'm in Minnesota and it happened to me. I had a nice set of YOM plates on my '51 Ford club coupe. About 20 years ago, I got a letter from the DMV saying that the number on my plate was re-issued and...

Re: V8 Emblem

Yeah, that does look good! AND, it reminds me of how much I like "barrel-nose" pickups.:)

Re: positive to negative change

I have an armature for a pre-49 Ford generator in my stash back in Minnesota that I have no need for that I would send you for shipping. The problem is, I'm in Marathon until May.

Re: Bronze Bushings, removing and installing professionally

I used to as well, and ended up buying a Chinese made "mini-lathe" for about $800. I spent a lot of time making my selection, and it paid off well. The unit I bought has an eight inch "swing" and can...

Re: Pressure-Sealing Blocks

Yikes! I guess that proves that DevCon is probably as good as people say it is, but using it that way can be very dangerous. Have you ever seen a picture of an air compressor tank that exploded? They...

Re: V8 Emblem

A friend gave me one. He thought it was old. It is on the box fan on my engine test stand.

Re: Pressure-Sealing Blocks

I have heard that there is something called "DevCon" that is like JB weld on steroids. I have never had an occasion to use it, but I think "Ol' Ron" has. Perhaps he will chime in on this.

Re: positive to negative change

I'm sure that if you look around you will be able to find an auto electric rebuilder near you who can repair your existing generator. You might be pleasantly surprised at the cost. The pictures of...

Re: Pressure-Sealing Blocks

The process is probably quite expensive and appeals to only a few that can afford to "gild the lily", so it makes sense that only the highest end shops would do it. There are a lot of things I would...

Re: Chevy distributors for a flathead

I had one of "Charlie ny"s converted SBC distributors in one of my previous engines. The clamping pad he provides is much better that the set screw method most others use. It fit and performed...

Re: 1936 cabriolet

Have you ever heard of O. Henry? He wrote a story called "The Four Million". The "400" was a common term used in the gilded age to refer to the "upper crust" of New York City society. He wrote "The...

Re: What bore for Ford steele sleeves?

Murre, Thanks for chiming in. If this fellow is not too far away, I think the best thing he could do is get in touch with you. "runifix" - This guy is the "real deal".

Re: Question about hand cranking flathead

Twenty years ago, I had a 1948 Seagrave open cab pumper with the Pierce-Arrow sourced 468 ci flathead V12. That engine had dual carbs (one for each bank) and two 12 cylinder dual coil distributors....

Re: What bore for Ford steele sleeves?

Are these just visible cracks or have you had the block magnafluxed and/or pressure tested? If these tests haven't been done, it would be foolhardy to proceed with any machine work. I doubt that any...

Re: HELP !!!! does anyone know

NOS might be tough, but these things don't wear out and are easy to refinish. The decals are available and look dead-on to me. I would try Shoebox Central and eBay. Oh yeah, Mercury filter assemblies...
