Re: 1936 Overheating Problem

Skip Makes new impellers for the 32 to 36 pumps. They are a little
larger in diameter, The fins are longer. The pump has to be bored
out a little which gives more coolant flow. G.M.

You can run an Optima too low and something happens it won't take a charge.
You have to connect it to a strong battery and charge it and it comes back to
life. I think that is the procedure. They...

Re: 1940 fan shroud

Jay that deflector is not going to help. The only thing that helps is more
air flow. A fan blade with more blades at a steeper pitch really improve cooling at idle and stop and go speeds. These...

Re: Question about a "Helmet" distributor

Search back in this forum, I put a detailed method
for testing condensers. Almost all of them test good
cold but need to be heated to over 200 degrees, hot
is when they breakdown. G.M.

Re: Use of a MIG welder for other purposes?

You have to be careful shorting out the contact tip of
a MIG welder. When shorted the amps go way up. How
high depends on the out put range the machine is set
at. This can burn out the transformer...

Re: Gets warm and quits running?

Tom, I hate to tell you but condensers fail all the time
from heat. When Skip does a coil for some one he
asks them to send condensers so he can heat them
up to hot test them. They work cold but...

Re: Water pump comparisons

Try a bottle of Purple Ice. This coats the inside surfaces
of the block and heads and transfers the heat into the
water. There is another product named Water Wetter. G.M.

Re: Gets warm and quits running?

Do you really think you have a good one now?? If it
is a stock Ford coil new or old it will still fail on a hot
day in traffic when the engine gets hot. I have tested

Re: Water pump comparisons

Skips pumps are a no brainer. They pump almost double
the coolant, less air and engines run cooler in most cases.
These are the last pumps you will ever buy, if they fail he
fixes them at NO...

Re: Shifting A Columbia In A '40

Re: lowest oil pressure for engine to survive

I usually use a piece of 1/4" pipe 3/8" thick for a spacer. If it also
has a valve in the pump the valve with the weakest spring will
determine the pressure. G.M.
