When my rear main was leaking the flywheel seemed to 'fling' the oil out where it would collect on the inside of the bell housing then run out the bottom. never got to the clutch.

Re: No air filter . . .

Snyder's and maybe others (I have not checked) sell new Zenith ! carbs that are air balanced. The one on my car works great. In fact the engine runs a little on the lean side with a K&N filter.

Re: No air filter . . .

Since Ford saw the need for an air filter on the '32 up V-8 didn't the Model B 4 cylinder get one as well?

Re: rear fender patch

Like mentioned above. No patch panels available. Get a used one and patch yours. A little welding, some smoothing and you're ready for paint.

Re: Sanity check on lubing springs in place

Different mind set I guess. I drive my modern as transportation (like my great grandpa drove his Model A) but I tend to 'Baby' my Town Sedan.

Re: DIY Windlace

That looks nice Brent. Do you sell to the public or just use 'in-house' on cars you restore?

Re: No Compression in 3 & 4 Cylinders

Side by side cylinders with low compression usually point to a blown head gasket between the two. You will have to pull the head to investigate and replace the head gasket.

Re: What size are my pistons

Can you measure the bottom of the cylinder, where there is less wear? I would venture to say you have standard pistons with .007" - .009" wear?

Re: Ford's Different Wheel Sizes

Thanks Chris and Gary for the quick answers. Is there any reason why Ford changed the size so often?

Re: Where oh where has all the gas gone?

Haha... If he lost ~ a tank of gas in the interior of the car I would guess he could smell it?? But if that is a concern, install the late '31 steering column support.
