Re: Which pressure plate to order?

I think deuce roadster is correct. If 9 in. is too small and 11 in.is to big, 10 in. is probably correct.

Re: 40 Ford Juice brake performance

For what it's worth, I remember (years ago) reading in one of the Ford manuals that OEM 1940 ford car brake linings were .18 in. thick. Does anyone else remember?

Re: Saving The 1939 Mercury Coupe From The Rust Lagoon

Got to admire the tenacity and desire to "save" old vehicles.
However, Gary U is correct.

Re: 50 custom

Double check and make sure there is oil in the engine.

Remove the plugs and squirt some oil inside the cylinders before cranking the engine.

I always thought that spring eyes were reversed by carefully re-arcing the main leaf in the opposite direction without reforming the spring eyes. Like this:...

Your concealed filter inside the OEM canister is a great idea. Looks great too.

Re: Elusive Block Crack?

Is the radiator losing any water? Your temperatures seem ok.
Did you retorque the head bolts?
Have you thought about adding some block sealer?
It might be a teeny, weeny head gasket leak.

Re: .100 or .125 bore without sonic testing the block? How Safe?

Re: Sea Foam induction... your thoughts?

If your car is running fine, why would you want to Seafoam it?

Just add Marvel Mystery Oil and Stabil in the gas tank at each fill up.

My vote is:" Let it be."

Re: front brakes replacement

I guess I need a lesson on abbreviations and code words. What's a d/p?

Was it meant to be d/t (differential and transmission) ?
