Re: Temperature

Sounds like no thermostats! If they are installed, they must be sticking wide open. Are you checking the temp with an IR gun or quality temp gauge?

Re: 6v gen

Voltage regulators can be adjusted, BUT, it requires bending components and a very small adjustment can make a big difference.

Re: Is there a problem in my charging circuit (or starter)

I would wait until you get the new battery installed before getting to worried. Hot engines can be more difficult to start than a cold engine. The issue could also be the coil or condenser.

Re: 6v gen

Can you measure the output? Should be above 6v for sure, somewhere in the 7.2/7.3v range

While back there were a couple of video strips posted of a modeled 40 coupe that looked fairly close to real. Might be able to contact the programmer. Any fiberglass modeling I have done was taken...

Re: Ford F-1 Spindles

The nomenclature you list is not correct. F1 is 1948 to 1952. 1953 through 1956 are F100. And yes, they are different.

Here is the difference in distance from backing plates. The backing plates...

Re: 15" Rims

I had my last set custom made, don't remember the price, but it wasn't that bad. And a lot of that was the shipping. There is a shop in LA I think, I could look it up if your interested.
