Re: Largest Tires for 1948 Ford Coupe?

Just to clarify, are you wanting the widest tire, the tallest sidewall, or both?
If it were me and wanted big tires, I would go "after market" with 15" wheels and a 7" width to allow for more tire...

Re: Lincoln V12 a crap engine?

Was that the result of forging problems with those huge blocks?

Lincoln V12 a crap engine?

There has been some discussion on another forum that the Zephyr V12 of the 1940's was a real crap engine. Poor HP and other performance issues. Is that because of the tiny pistons?

Re: Obsolete & Classic Auto Parts, Inc Experience

I believe the vendors always give you the option of waiting to ship until all the parts are in stock. They sort of hide that in the fine print. I have found that, while shopping on line is...

Re: Hesitation when accelerating from stop - Holly 1901 carb

Speaking of vacuum, I would check for a vacuum leak somewhere. Lots of advice on this in the archives. Remember the 3 R's; spark, fuel and vacuum.

Re: Dual Exhaust on 34 coupe

To convert your exhaust to dual, you will need headers and two pipes routed from the headers, back through the frame and your choice of mufflers. Nothing better than the sound of a flathead with dual...

Smile Re: 51 Crestliner

Those holes should have been filled with lead, not bondo. Of course they probably got 60 years out of the bondo so it did it's job.

Re: Basket Case 50 Club Coupe

That "clunk" could be the distributor. I would pull it and take a look at the gears.

Re: Horn rod removal

You may want to remove the steering tube bracket from the dash board to give you a better angle (at least more options) when pulling up the rod.

Just install an inline filter to the drain hose that you're using.

Re: 41 Ford engine help

Just in case the fuel pump does not correct the problem. Do you have a test meter? If not, go buy one. They are cheap and you simply must have one and learn how to use it.
Readings should be about:...

Re: Repainting an engine

As an old sign painter, I would suggest adding a little Penetrol to the paint. Really helps with the "flow" of the paint and it does not "thin" the paint as adding thinner would do.

Re: Stock 40 Coupe

You may have a vacuum leak some where. Check the wiper hose, line to helmet and make sure intake manifold is tight.

Re: Bob Drake '40 Gas Tank

Double that Nope. You will need to remove portions of the seam on both edges to fit. Not too bad a job but funny they can't just make it right.
