Re: Brake Adjustment

This is what I do when bleeding brakes (with a helper)


Fill a bottle (plastic please) with small amount of fluid.



Connect hose to bleeder, submerge other end in bottle fluid.

Re: Marvel Classic Motor Oil

Based on what I saw written by a noted YBlock engine builder, any oil with a "30" or more in it has enough zinc. He uses Valvoline 10-30 conventional in most of the engines he builds. No...

Re: Top loader question

Darrell is spot on. I did the swap in back of a 312. If your using bucket seats then the shifter location may not be a problem. With the right tailhousing, the standard bench seat is not a problem.

Re: 36 Can't Stop The Oil Pan Drain Plug Drip

Re: 1967 Mustang rear end gear ratio

I have a 48 Ford with a 302, C4 and a 3.50 (3.55?) rear. I don't find the engine working that hard when doing 65 or so. Don't have a tach in this car, so ,I don't know what the rpm is at 65.

Re: Powermaster PowerGen

These are different models of alternators used on Fords. I don't know the differences, but I think one of them is output. Try Google for an explanation of the different models

Re: FE valve cover hold downs

I don't think studs help any better than bolts. Your first item seems to be the better of the choices, although I don't know how good the thicker gasket would be. I use the ones similar to the ones...

Re: I notice my transmission leaking a little bit on the floor.

My 56 had an air cooled trans. Never had a problem with it. Summer trip across country over the mountains on the west coast, never let me down.

Re: Inner fender to fender rubber seal

These metal pieces were used on the 56 Birds so I imagine they were used on the sedans.. The Birds MAY be the same as the sedans. The group number is 16050 (Metal Retainer for Apron Seal). Repos...

Re: automatic trans and the 8cm engine

The C-4 is a lighter, more efficient trans than a Fordo/Merco. The offset is you have to get an adapter for the C-4. Flat-O-Matic may have the situation with the small crank hole remedied though.

Re: I notice my transmission leaking a little bit on the floor.

56 had both air and water cooled Fordo's. The switch to water cooled came sometime during the model year

Re: My T Bird is a 292 bored 40 over I found

What does the VIN start with? M is for a 292, P for a 312. 292's usually did not come with an automatic.

Re: drop front fender at back in a 1947 mercury.

If it's like my 48 Ford, there are about 4 bolts on each side that must be loosened. They go into cage nuts. Problem - if there is rust binding the cage nut and bolt you are liable to ruin the cage...

Re: Inner fender to fender rubber seal

The tbird suppliers sell staples separately. I didn't want the regular steel staples, so I got some same size stainless wire and made my own. Easy to do, but a little time consuming.
