Re: Ford !

Re: 1931 model A performance

My car loves 40mph. 45 and over it starts to complain, and I haven’t tried to get her above 55. Then again I daily in Chicago city traffic, and rarely get over 20 anyway!

Re: Oil pressure

I get 2-3psi, then 0-.5 after hot. Seems to run just fine.

Re: red line products

I’ve been using their 80w250 in my transmission for most of the summer, and have been happier with it than the 600w they sell in the catalogues.

Re: Help with latch spring placement

I bent the end with some needle nose pliers in such a way that maintains its tension against the assembly, but tucks up behind that ridge on the latch. So far it’s working great.

Re: Transmission Issues

Can you shift smoothly if you push in the clutch, and wait a few seconds before selecting a gear?

Re: Engine Blow By or Not

Like ryanheacox, I reluctantly placed a stainless steel scrub pad in the oil filler tube. Solved my admittedly minor mist problem.

Re: transmission oil

I used 600W, but found the viscosity would vary too widely with weather, and driving conditions for my liking. Been using Redline 80w250 since June. It’s a GLI-5 gear oil, but explicitly states it...

Re: shock problem

This would happen to me after I lowered the front end, and thought I need shorter links. Went back to standard links, and it hasn’t happened since. So, longer links needed?

It is the front cross member. It looks like it could be salvageable, but you'd be surprised how hard it is to find a competent mechanic in the city.

Any ballparks on what I could...
