Re: Overheating Problems

Has anyone used a NAPA combustion gas detector to check for leaking head gasket? Do I plug the overflow tube??

1939 CT License Plate

Looking for Connecticut Plate 1939 - I-111

I know it's a long shot - A friend has had this tag number in the family since his grandfather bought a new ford in 1939.

Re: Never Seeze

Never Seize is used as a thread lubricant. It is commonly used in high temp applications such as jet engine assembly.

Re: Need holley 94 help

John,

I had a very similar problem. My engine seemed to idle fine but would not accelerate, stumble, popping etc. I was thinking it was not getting enough fuel but it was actually getting too...

Re: Will a Starter Heatshield Help?

I feel confident that the starter is in good shape - The engine when hot takes more current than when cold -- I re-read the last post from Vic Piano and he says that he hasn't seen a slow cranking...

Re: Will a Starter Heatshield Help?

Re: Charging rate

Tom,

I am running standard light bulbs (6V). I do not have the internal EVR as the 3rd brush is installed. I do not know if I have a regulator inside the cutout.

I just started the car and...

Re: Charging rate

The amp output on my generator is very low - about 1 amp. Moving the 3rd brush doesn't seem to have any effect. Is this because I might have an aftermarket voltage regulator built inside the...

Re: 31 pickup rear window

Try using a pair of forceps (spelling?) that a surgeon uses - They are like mini vise grips - I think that is what I used for the rear window install on my 30 CCPU.

Restricted Exhaust

Re: Pick up running boards

Not sure how particular you are with the powder color matching the front and rear fenders. I never realized that there are many "shades" of black. I just assumed that black was all the same until I...
