Re: 40 engine temperature drop by 20 degrees

Years ago I was into VWs. If the heat riser was plugged (a common problem) they would ice up even on a warm day. Along with the pressure drop from air going through the venture there is a...

Here are some examples of "saved" cars (what they started with). There are some build threads on the HAMB that are really unbelievable. There is one gentleman that fabricates all the body panels by...

Re: Some photos of my '41

The Bosch blue coil does not use any resistance in the ignition lead. Running a resistor with it will greatly reduce it's performance.

Re: Why

That is one of those topics like what oil to use. IMO the original system with the original flow rates works fine. But others love the high flow pumps and believe they improve the cooling. To me...

Re: 40 engine temperature drop by 20 degrees

That was THE thing to do in the 50s. Also, the penny used was your birth year! It was a 50s Hot Rod thing.

Re: 40 Ford Juice brake performance

Getting the drums turned may not be that easy, not everyone can do them. Also, you will need a hub puller to remove the rear drums.

Re: Why

Might be worth getting an IR heat gun to check the temps. They are fairly cheap!

Re: Why

It's not a problem until it boils over. Heat isn't to much of a problem, but boiling is. Bubbles start forming around the cylinder walls and act as an insulator and drives the heat up even more. ...

Re: Why

Your putting more energy (heat) into the system and it is overpowering the cooling capability. You might have more air coming through the radiator but it is not enough to overcome the increased heat...

Re: Oil filter threads on EBA heads??

Use a depth gauge (calipers would work for this) and measure the depth of the current hole. Then drill it out to a depth slightly short of the current depth. Depending on the size of the existing...

Re: Seized Flathead - is it worth it?

It is only worth it if you want and can use the parts as there is a high probably the block could be unusable. Unless a block has been checked it is not of much value. A bad block can have value...

Re: Flat 221ci - 1935 - Getting stuck after 3 weeks sitting.

Can you turn it over by hand enough to get a rough compression test on the cylinders? If you can get the equipment a leak down test would be great.

Re: Wiring an electric fuel pump

I agree, I use both, they handle slightly different situations. My thought was it might over complicate the discussion.

Re: 1950 f1

Have you checked the oil recently? It is possible for a fuel pump to pump fuel into the crankcase and dilute the oil!

Re: Help: Reverse eye leaf spring problem 34 Ford

It's really an interesting thread and the first reference was somewhat buried in the post, so might be good it was reposted for anyone that is interested.

Re: 40 Ford Juice brake performance

Assuming Lockheed brakes, the new shoes could be the issue. The shoes need to be fitted to the drums or you are only connecting a small part of the shoe.
