Re: Stitching & sleeving an 8BA- sequence?

Either they wern't done right or you haven't seen very many. I've seen a lot of them repaired that way and have never seen one leak.

Re: Cost of rebuild a flathead

Harbor Freight sells an inexpensive HVLP gun that does an acceptable job with some practice. They also sell moisture traps.

Re: Can't open door!

Until you can find replacement parts,braze up the worn ones and file to shape. That will last for about 50 years and you should be able to find new ones in that time.

Re: 47 Ford Fuel Pump again

I've seen where people have put washers in or welded on the end of the pushrod and it pushed the fuel pump stand up so it was bowed up between the mounting holes. Now it leaks around the base and if...

Re: Anyone Interested In Old Race Cars?

The 2nd gear lock is an interesting feature. My 34 has a hook welded to the dash to keep it in 2nd. A lot of those old trannys would jump out of gear if you let off for the corner and it could be a...
