Re: 52 Flathead Radiator

US Radiators are a great build, cool well, good service and good quality. Looks OEM and you can choose your personal options. Highly recommended. I am very pleased as it keeps my A/C equipped...

Re: radial tires

I love these guys. Great service and quality tires. I had my whites over one year and while doing the rear brakes last month, a bubble was discovered on the inside of one tire. I sent a photo and...

Re: Car collection - Need some help

Re: Car collection - Need some help

The collection of cars is fantastic. The commercial nature of the Cruising New England video stinks and I will not watch their vids again.

Re: AOD to flathead

3:55 is debatable as a good ratio for and AOD without a kit. Check ratio before running. Putting in a kit afterwards is so messy, I know!

Re: AOD to flathead

Suggest you adjust the throttle pressure as best you can before driving or pay someone to come out and adjust. The company that rebuilt my AOD did that at no charge. However, I would have paid. Also...

Re: What Is The Best Bondo To Use Over Body Solder??

As a collision repair shop owner, we never concerned ourselves with a brand that adhered well to lead. Just make sure all is clean. Today’s “bondo” even adheres to paint.

Re: Removing Engine from '40 Ford Question

Thanks guys, to be honest, I do push the pedal once in awhile. No, not as gutsy as a standard tranny though. However, adequate. Don’t think my pocketbook could stand another ARDUN Since my ARDUN...

Re: Removing Engine from '40 Ford Question

I would and I did in my ‘53. Certainly not sorry. I did the “Ardun/Stick” thing and my wife didn’t like driving the car. After putting in an AOD, EPS and Air, she likes it. Guess I am a really...

Re: overdrive gear oil

GL1 is the proper gear oil. You can get it at NAPA. Leaks will continue until you change the gaskets and or seal, not the grease.
