Re: 52 f1

Based on the typical wear issues with these mechanisms, the pin isn't likely the issue.

You'll need to hold the escutcheon ring back against the door to remove the pin. Use the blade of a...

Re: Master cylinder bleeding

I would recommend bench bleeding the MC. Check out this video at about the 11 minute mark: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tOCkFYhTskQ

They are. I would attribute any perceived differences to lighting.

Yup, $15K+. That looks like an exception survivor.

Re: On the horn now

Oops on the assumption.

There are three relay leads: horn button, the horn(s), and power (usually from the hot side of the solenoid). The horn itself is grounded (typically with the mounting but...

Re: '48 Ford dash

Yup, any good adhesive should work. There isn't too much tension on the fasteners.

Re: The Case of the Gasping Flathead

As others have mentioned, the original style air filters can be clogged for any number of reasons. Glad you found a solution that meets your needs.

Re: The Case of the Gasping Flathead

The video shows that I'm manually moving the throttle while watching the gauge. I'll also adjust the mixture screws.

Thanks for the comments. I appreciate it.

Re: The Case of the Gasping Flathead

So do I need to rerun the check at full throttle to have meaningful results?

Not floored. Maybe about halfish throttle.

Re: The Case of the Gasping Flathead

Yes, the housing has 'front' embossed into it and it faces forward.

The housing does have a recess for the clamp to nest.

I'll take another look at the choke position. It has been a head...

Re: The Case of the Gasping Flathead

Oil for the bath is slightly below the fill line. The gasping condition is the same with only the bottom of the filter in place.

Re: The Case of the Gasping Flathead

Fair enough. Since the engine will not stay lit with the cleaner on, I'll need to check for vac readings without it. Any issues starting with this approach?

Re: The Case of the Gasping Flathead

Nope on the choke.

Yes, on oil bath.

Ignorant question: How will resetting with a vac gauge help?
