Re: Laser Cleaner On Frame

I nominate Phillip Swanson to be our Product Investigator. Phillip can perform testing and report back to us. Good man, Phillip.

Re: Stock 1938 Ford Tudor sedan

Your stock rims are 3.5" wide, which takes a 5.5" tire. 6.00" tires will work on this rim, but you would need to up the rim size to 4.0" to go with the 6.50" tires.

Re: 1938 Deluxe and 1939 Standard Coupe Hoods

38 DeLuxe is not directly interchangeable with 39 Standard, but will fit with a bit of a massage to the nose. To confirm this, just compare the chrome nosepiece of one to the other.

Re: Jensen S1

Welcome to the Ford Barn! That's a beautiful automobile! Your engine and radiator does appear to have been replaced with a later vintage. If you plan on restoring the running gear to its original...

Re: Holley 94 flooding

Check the seal of the power valve. New power (economizer) valves mating surface must be modified to match the old carbs. I've also heard that doubling up on the gaskets may also accomplish the seal....

Re: Bring a Trailer

I am surprised to read that so many here consider financing the purchase of a collector car to be the norm. To me, that's even dumber than buying a collector car as an investment.

I know, there...

Re: More banjo questions for the gurus

The preload is done in the cornfield as you suspect, by clamping the pinion in a bench vise and spinning the banjo. As Talkwrench also says, you should get one full turn only no matter how hard or...

Re: 59AB Cooling System Advice Needed from the Experts (not an overheating issue)

It sounds like you've eliminated a head gasket leak, so I'm puzzled as to why you'd consider changing gaskets and studs. Other possible causes also seem to have been eliminated, except the coolant...

Re: Oops...

Bob, I'm reminded by your post that yes, the modern senders do work with original gauges, but no, they don't work nearly as well as the original due to the different systems, providing a considerably...

Re: Oops...

What Seery said about grounding path for the gauge rings a bell for me. I remember being told that you could test the dash unit by grounding the sending wire, but was cautioned to not let it stay on...

Re: 8BA potential leak- Bubble test

I'm thinking the big bubble you describe is just accumulated cavitation bubbles that are allowed to escape at lower RPM. If you had a gasket leak to the coolant, you would see like a iridescent thin...

Re: Snap On Dwell Meter

Jakno, you keep saying that you have a 1937 59A engine in your 1935 pickup! Your engine is actually a 59 series, having 59AB heads, was introduced in 1945, and used until 1948. While you may have...

Re: Chandler- Grove 1 bbl #1-aa, Did Ford use this?

That's a great find! I've never seen one of those before, but by the nomenclature, this one barrel appears to be the natural predecessor of the two barrel Model 94 used by Ford in 1938. From that...

Re: Water pump to motor mounts

Bill, That may depend on how you have lifted the engine to do the job. The normal way to do it is with a short length of 2x8 on a jack supporting the front of the oil pan. If this is how you did it,...

Re: Adding an electric fuel pump

That is an issue that can be resolved on the spot by simply holding the line up higher than the source. The thing about that, of course, is the need for another hand to do that! It can be done,...

Re: Modern Carb kits for Holley 94

Rambo, you will definitely need a fuel resistant pump kit also, and the same for a flex hose.

Re: Engine Mount Bolt Torque

They do need to be tight, but only to the point that the rubber barely starts to bulge.

Re: 39 Coupe Broken Axle Removal.

Portapower will work if there is no leakback. A good solid screw type spreader would be easier, due to precise adjustment capability. To be clear, spreader goes between both spring eyes, even though...

Re: 39 Coupe Broken Axle Removal.

Phil, Yes, there is no reason not to do the job that way, quick and easy. I've also done it with and without a spring spreader, preferably with, but not a big deal without. Drolston has the correct...

Re: Modern Carb kits for Holley 94

Rambow, I agree with the above posters, but would remind Sal that the cheaper kits are cheaper for a reason! Do the job once and do it right.

Re: Selling a vehicle and money questions...

Your continuing to press your point is irritating and intimidating. My friend Ryan in the backseat is my equalizer today.
