Re: Got the 24 coupe running

Here is the good side of the coupe. I rescued it from a garage where it had been stored since the early 1960's. The passenger side is disassembled due to some rotten wood. I have my work cut out...

Re: Hammering on an Ol'Truck......

I used slip plate on the front springs on my 45 truck a few years ago, based on recs I got from here. Did great.

Re: Carlisle

A guy in one of the local clubs got it as did his wife and son. All were in the hospital. A rough time for all of them. The odds of infection may be low, but given the age of most of us, it is...

Re: 1934 Ford auction results

That 46 woodie seemed like a reasonable price for what looked like a nice car. Other prices seemed high.

Re: MAFFI Hall of Fame

All great selections. Second the appreciation to Les Andrews. Very well deserved. I use his books all the time.

Re: Rim spreader tools

Chevrolet used Jaxon rims that were 21". The rims were split and you can use a rim spreader to fit them to the tyres. Model Ts with with split rims used the same tool. I can dig up a photo of my...

Starter failure

Re: Rust Oleum spray cans

As you can see you are not alone. I suspect that at least half of every can is never used. What a waste.

Re: Ford verse Chevrolet

One reason that I have read is that the GM bodies had more wood in them, so they rotted away. I don't think that explains it all, though. Model As seem to have a significant amount of wood in them,...

Re: Title goes with Frame or Engine?

Interesting hypothetical question.

I think legally it could go to either, but I think an argument could be made that it goes with the chassis. The chassis mark would correspond to the dash VIN...

For getting rid of the old lights, if you have a local Craigslist, someone will take them off your hands.

Got the 24 coupe running

After sitting in a garage since around 1962, I got my 24 coupe running.

I didn't do a lot to prep: changed the oil, removed the gas tank and carb and cleaned them, cleaned electrical contacts...

Re: Cleaning engine out in '40 Sedan

It has been said earlier, but if the engine doesn't get warm enough, you will get sludge. It seems like you drive it enough.
