Re: Spark Advance versus Overheat

Have you retimed the car since you put the Pertronix in? I installed one in a 350 SBC I had in a boat years ago and when I tried to start it, it backfired a couple of times, hydro-locked, and broke a...

Re: 1951 Ford 4dr

For my part, I will tell you that I have a '51 club coupe that had only 61,000 well cared for miles when I got it in 1987. The manual says that you should lubricate the chassis every 1000 miles(!!)....

Re: Fender Mirror

I had a broken mirror, and I did a google search and found a place that sold round mirrors in all kinds of sizes. It took a little screwing around, but I was able to install the new mirror in the old...

Re: Checking Voltage

That's the problem with all of this old good electronics; they require weird batteries. Think Sun Tach sending units.

Re: Fuel pump stand with small pinholes usable?

Here's what I have. Oh, by the way, after I looked at it, I don't think it will fit in a "Small Flat Rate Box". Better plan on over $10 for shipping.

Re: Fuel pump stand with small pinholes usable?

I just looked at the picture you supplied and I think maybe mine might be the right one after all. Like I said, it appears to be NOS (or maybe a repop) and the top large sheet metal tube is not...

Re: anti theft measures used?

I have spent a lot of time ine the "Corvette World", and the general consensus over there is that a locking, alarmed car cover is the singlwe most effective method of preventing theft.

Re: Fuel pump stand with small pinholes usable?

I just measured mine and it is about 3" from the base to the top, so it won't work. Sorry. Too bad; it looks NOS. After looking at it, I don'r see why you just couldn't replace the steel tube with a...

Re: 1951 Tudor Sedan steering column

I see your not getting much response. I have a '51 that is completely original in the dash/steering column area that I can look over if you have any specific questions. It may or may not be of any...

Re: Transmission Leaking

Have you checked to see if the transmission has been over-filled? Probably not, but I'd check that before I pulled it out.

Re: Fuel pump stand with small pinholes usable?

I think I saw one on the shelf yesterday that I don't need. If interested, send me the particulars, and if it's the right one, it's yours for shipping. It should fit in a small flat rate box for...

Re: Leaf spring alignment bolt under axle pad

I find the part about using a heat gun to cure the paint to be interesting. I have an old kitchen oven converted for use to cure parts I have powder-coated. I have also used it to cure painted small...

Re: Leaf spring alignment bolt under axle pad

It's amazing that something that went together so easily is so difficult to take apart 68 years later...NOT.

Re: Anyone driving today

Probably not here in north-central "Rainesota" (or is it "Coldesota"?). The weather really sucks up here the last couple of years.

Re: Cracked 1949 8BA

You know Russ? I think I agree with you. It looks like it's been there forever and is quite stable; doing anything might upset the equilibrium.

Re: Foundering flathead

Tinker, I guess we'll have to agree to disagree. With the cost of building a flathead what it is today, I'd probably go to great lengths to make sure that no damage would be done to a fresh engine.

Re: Foundering flathead

Tinker, he says it appears to be a fresh build. If it is, "run it hard for a bit" might not be the best idea. If it is a fresh build, I'm afraid it will have to be taken apart and everything checked....
