Re: aluminum radiators

I put a Champion radiator in my '51 Mercury and it isn't designed correctly. It fits but the top tank is offset the wrong way and was letting a lot of fresh air escape up and over. My car ran hot...

Re: gasoline

Small engines, boats and ATV's, and collector cars have motivated the availability. I think our state laws allow the sale of non -ethanol.

Re: gasoline

The basic idea is to add around 10% water to pull out the 10% ethanol. So 2 quarts of water goes in and 4 quarts of cloudy ethanol/water comes out.

Re: gasoline

Petrol gasoline is very hydrophobic. But since you are a chemistry teacher...
you already know that. Tell me more about gas and water mixing. Have the molecular properties changed recently?

Re: gasoline

Yes you can easily force "phase separation" with water. If you start with 92 Super unleaded you end up about 88 octane petrol gasoline. It's a bit of a hassle, but if you can't easily buy...

Re: Engine Paint-1953 Merc

It is close. It's a little bit lighter, and appears more glossy when dry. If both are not next to each other, you'd never know.

Re: Early Ford/Mercury automatic transmissions 51'-55'

Who is confused? Everyone should be confused because I've never seen definitive documentation stating that type F should be used.
All I know is my car did not like type F.
