Re: Curing The Black Ooze

Did you lay the gasket on the head and on the block to see where the fire rings lay?

Re: Dog-Bone Links

You went first class with the Stipe shock, so I'm surprised you went with the dog bone links. I'd use A&L correct tubular links.

Re: Temperature Rises after shutdown

I like any temp from 180 to 195. Once I got the junk out of my block and back flushed the block and radiator, the car runs fine now. I have a 175 or 180 thermostat in the top hose.

Re: Head Gasket Felpro 7013-R1???

That's right. You want every bit of the fire rings to be squeezed between metal on both sides, and you don't want any part of the fire ring hanging out in the combustion area. Not only would it heat...

Re: Temperature Rises after shutdown

It is. Eagle has it right in #18.
I'd remove the radiator, turn it upside down and flush it by using a sump pump. I've posted pictures of the whole job here before, and a search should turn them up.

Re: Tudor and Panel Delivery Front Seats

To the best of my knowledge the bar was used through 1928, then the cups. My 2-23-29 Tudor has the cups. I'm not sure about the change from the forged seat frame parts to stamped steel.

Re: Generator Field Ground

That flag terminal is the field feed wire and is attached to the adjustable brush.

Ford never grounded the fields on the end plate.

Re: Horn won't work

Is the diaphram oriented correctly?
The lines of the wavy wheel must strike the diaphram chisel point in the same line.


You must use a fully charged battery, and the adjustment screw should...

Re: Generator Field Ground

You show the terminal for the adjustable brush, but the other end of the field coils should have a large eyelet that fits under the output stud and insulating washers. Parts houses sell the stud and...

Re: To Frequent Drivers: What Function Concerns You The Most?

Exactly! Texting, speeding, tailgating drivers are the only thing I worry about.

Re: Carpet fastener location

My early 29 Tudor came with rubber mats, not carpets. I will lay carpet over the rubber mats to hold down heat and noise.

Re: Camshaft Plunger !!!!

Yes it does, but for some reason, even with the X recess in the plunger, it takes some time for the oil to coat the plunger.

Re: Brakes (Again)

Remove 4 pins from the front ends of the 4 service brake rods.
Adjust each wheel to lock, then back off each a few clicks.
Adjust rod ends so the pins just slide into place as you LIGHTLY pull each...

Re: Coil Voltage ???

Yep, that's the exact experience a worker had at the yard where I worked. Someone wired the coil to the driver's seat spring, and the driver felt the power in the seat of his pants. True story.

Re: Nu Rex Points

The points is what completes the ground side of the coil circuit. If the head distributor hole is rusty or the distributor lower housing has paint or rust, then it may not make a good ground.

Re: Headlight Electrical Draw

The long generator can safely produce 12 amps continuous, and the powerhouse can give 15 amps.
