Re: New Tire Recommendation

Google it! Here is just one. Our tires go easier without the soap.

Re: New Tire Recommendation

Do us all a favor, and tell us what choice you made, whatever it is. Just curious.

Re: New Tire Recommendation

Basically, you lay a large garbage bag over the wheel, as it lays on a carpet floor. The slippery nature of the bag allows you to slip the tire over the rim by hand with no tools.

Re: New Tire Recommendation

Since you did not wear out your existing tires after all those years, durability is not as important. If your not concerned about judging, I would suggest a very reasonable choice. The Lucas tires...

Re: Crank grinding

Why is this in the "A" forum? Who is going to offset grind an "A" crank?

most likely you were in error as to TDC. Did you double check that?

Re: 29 light switch

Please excuse the intrusion here, but it seems the perfect opportunity to mention a related issue. When I put my truck together I used what I think was an early 70's repo, or maybe an NOS harness,...

Re: 28/29 Brake Light Switch

On the 28/29 switch, it is easy to repair. On some, the spring when fully compressed, if short, can pull the overall shaft out of the rear of the unit rendering it brake lights on full time. I put...

Re: Pressure test plate

To me, it makes little sense to go through the task of opening the bore, without opening the entire valve and combustion area. Doing so makes a good case for having it at least 1/2" thick steel.

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

I don't recall hearing anything about the cam. Will we be on our own shopping for a cam, or will a stock A cam work with the 5 webs in the block?

Re: Assistance Needed !

It's a common complaint. You wouldn't think one stud would allow enough movement of the head to allow a leak, but it is what it is, and people just drop the water leval.

Re: Ford F1 pitman arm refurb: Spherical turning without any fancy fixtures.

That was very interesting, and very creative on your part. Being a newbie with my Logan, I'm always learning new ways to get the job done. Thanks Mart

Re: Water Pump Removal

Excellent point, I didn't think about how thick your core is. My Berg core is as big as would fit, not a lot extra room left. That explains a lot of differing experiences.

Gotcha, how close is your pump shaft to the radiator core?

Re: Stuck Signal Stat 900 Signal Switch

Try temporarily connecting a 6 volt bulb to one of the LEDs in parallel. If the flasher flashes as it should, you just need a load due to low current draw of the LED.

Re: Water Pump Removal

You have to disengage the hood prop rods to tilt the radiator forward. You trust that situation to hold the hood while tillting the radiator forward?

I just dont understand how people can claim to...

Re: feul pump problem 49 ford flathead

Depending on how much offset is present, I would take a long tapered punch and give it a tap through the bearing hole to see if you can move enough metal to allow the rod to pass. Be selective with...

Re: Water Pump Removal

I cant imagine that. Removing the stud/bolts will not totally eliminate the need to tilt the radiator forward, as the impeller needs to clear the head.

Re: Would You Use it?

FYI, I have decided to use the proper gaskets on my build, Felpro 7548B. Decided to remove any doubt, and the price was too good to pass up. Mike, don't get your "killing compression" comment? ?

Re: Radiator repairs and strengthening for pressure. Mart's 41 pu get's it's Rad fixe

Re: Would You Use it?

If I recall correctly, it states to enlarge the 5/8" center hole in the head to 3/4".

Re: connect the capacitor outside

Just to add to your choices, there is a stock appearing condenser available now from the "A" vendors that will be able to tolerate the heat in the stock location. I have never heard of one failing.
