Re: New Day, New Dilemma

I would check the oil level in the engine. The first generation flathead V-8s did not use a rear oil seal, there is a collar on the crankshaft that slings the oil out and it is collected by the rear...

Re: Master cylinder

You need to anneal the copper washer to soften it so that it will seal. Heat it to a cherry red color and quench it in a bucket of cold water.

Re: Heavy Black Exhaust

It doesn't sound right to me that it should be making heavy black smoke. I would be calling Carpenter to see what they suggest.

Re: 37 glovebox

There are two flat, semi-circular springs, about 3/4" wide, that hold the glove box lid closed on the 1937 Ford passenger cars.

Re: 1936 5 window coupe doors

I have this issue on my 37 coupe. My problem is a structural issue where the bottom hinge attaches to the door. I plan to repair the door frames to resolve the problem.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

That is a great looking, original truck. It would be good to treat the areas where there were mouse nests with Ospho or some other rust neutralizing product.
