Re: Them Ford engineers knew their stuff!

Tubman,
You've got my curiosity up now. Are you using a PCV valve on that particular engine?

Re: What Gasoline that has NO ethanol in it?

I don't know how it is in your area but I'm paying 25 to 30 cents more per gallon in my area for non-ethanol gas. How about you guys?

Re: Langhorne Sportsman Race circa 1951

GB, I think you hit the nail on the head. A lot of those guys had to be ex-GI's. The jalopy racing was a way to re-create some excitement in their lives without having to worry about someone shooting...

Brillman lists a U.S.A. made voltage regulator also but it too is 3 lug.

Langhorne Sportsman Race circa 1951

I saw this over on the H.A.M.B. and could not resist bringing it over here to share. It's a 100 lap National Open Sportsman race with over a hundred cars starting the race on the one mile track at...

Re: Well...this ain't good

I've been twisting them into aluminum heads for longer than I want to admit to. Always used anti-seize but never a torque wrench. Just went "kinda light" on the torque because it was aluminum....

Re: Well...this ain't good

I always use anti-seize when putting spark plugs in aluminum heads but someone mentioned proper torque. What would that be for a spark plug in an aluminum head?

Re: Replacing 6 volt heater motor

Kevin is on the right track here. Many times these motors can be repaired if you can find an electric motor repair shop in your area.

Re: Loss of Hot Rod Deluxe

Also I find print magazines much more suitable for "the reading room". Somehow a laptop just doesn't work as well in there for me! :rolleyes:

Re: Cold winter moving in

I had my '32 out for a little spin last Wednesday. It was quite nice here. :) Temperature was in the low 60's and sunny! Today though is not so good. Sleet and freezing rain. :(

Re: What kind of heads are these - 49 Merc flathead?

Looks to me like for whatever reason the road draft tube hole is blocked off in the intake manifold. Perhaps with a freeze plug?
