Re: Loss of Hot Rod Deluxe

I’ve also noticed Hemings is getting thinner than it used to be.

Re: Looking for exhaust port layout drawing

Or, screw four studs in the outer ports and lay the poster board on them, slight tap with a hammer and viola!

Re: 39 Ford Mercury hubcaps in pictures

Never knew that about the Mercury line, I’ll bet those Ford-Mercury caps are pretty rare.

Re: Looking for exhaust port layout drawing

I just used an exhaust manifold for the pattern. Of course you must reverse it, unless you’re using it on the other side :)

Re: Built a louver press

That’s really nice, I have one of the Low Buck Tools presses with a shrinker die and was thinking about getting the louver dies for it.
But first I think I want to upgrade my bead roller to power!

Re: Radiator support rods question

I’ve tried cutting off and rethreading the stainless rods in the past, with poor results. Ended up taking a pair to a machinist for a $$, he did them right.
Just can’t imagine why you can’t find...

Radiator support rods question

So I see all these replacement stainless steel radiator rods advertised as 33 inches long. When I measure my 35 radiator to firewall with radiator at the correct angle the rod should only be 29...

Re: Problem with front axle made of a mixture of parts.

Or, you could run the tie rod through the wishbone!
I have seen this done, but sorry, can’t find a picture now.

Re: exchange 8ba cyl heads with 59ab

As for the hose sizes, napa sells adapters which are short hoses to change the inside diameter of a hose that you’re using.

Re: Standard or Deluxe Model?

I don’t think 35s had a banjo wheel option. Boy I wish I had one of those grilles hanging there. Sure look a lot nicer than mine.

Re: Vintage stock car

Looks like the other side got the T bone, love to see it back to its racing glory.
Any pictures of it at the races back then?

Re: It is getting harder to find basic parts at the auto parts stores anymore

Dealers are getting worse that parts houses, they won’t stock anything after a certain year. Around ten years old forget it.

Re: BULLETT Mustang sold today at Mecum auction for:

My Mom had a 67 mustang when I was in high school, I loved to borrow it! I was a little hard on it though, snapped a motor mount on a hard take off from a stop sign once.

Re: '35/36 Sedan Delivery interior photos needed

Is it just me or do the rear fenders on that 36 panel look like 35s?

Re: It is getting harder to find basic parts at the auto parts stores anymore

Sometimes the parts are there, but the kid behind the counter has no idea what a 12volt externally resisted coil is, unless the computer shows him a part number.

Re: BULLETT Mustang sold today at Mecum auction for:

You know they had a smoke machine in the trunk pointed at the tire from a hole in the wheel well.
But still a really cool scene, especially for a young kid (me), watching that movie.

Re: Is this a bad idea?

“To the moon Alice!

I have used diesel fuel in the past. But you’ll end up changing your oil twice to get rid of the residue.

Re: As Promised Another Brochure, Engine Exchange 1934

Wow, $49.50 installed! Of course in the height of the depression, that was a lot of money.
Interesting for them to say the Ford is the only V8 under $2500 I would think a 1934 Ford was much lower...
