Re: Timing procedure on 59AB?

I took the picture. Are they not timing marks?

Re: Timing procedure on 59AB?

Assuming you have a stock setup, use the VanPelt instructions. Take your time and check your work. I do not possess any special talent or equipment and reset my disty first pass. The timing marks...

Re: Drone fly through Classic Auto Mall

Wow, that's quite a collection of old iron.

Do any cars actually get sold? That's the Volo, Illinois volume with far more floor space.

Re: Please educate me on scammers when selling a car

Mostly, they seem to want names, email addresses, and phone numbers. Not responding to the wave of responses that come shortly after a new Craigslist ad is the best plan . The bots that reply with...

Re: 59 AB Pan Removal

I am at best a mechanical hack so take this as you will.

I doubt it. The bell housing and the oil pan don't play together nicely. When reassembling my 59 AB, I tried to install the bell housing...

Re: S/n help

Careful. My 46 has a plate on the firewall. The Van Pelt site is normally correct I'm sure but it isn't consistent with the side shift trannys I've seen.

Re: S/n help

So, originally there should be a plate on the engine bay firewall with the serial number. I take it is missing? While the practices varied by assembly plant, I'm not familiar with any that stamped...

Afraid you are mistaken, sir. The parking lights are above the headlights. Looks to be a 46.

Re: New clutch advice

In my experience, you'll need to pull the engine. While is is possible in theory to 'just' pull the back end, the oil pan will not cooperate, the output shaft flange connections and the size of the...

The best supplier is Steele Rubber. Can't speak to a squeeze off for softest.

Re: Is the brake master cylinder filled through a hole in the floor?

Some of the master cylinder repop units (including the NAPA version) have the dumbest design possible for the cap/throat. Impossible to add fluid without making a mess, they compound the fun by...

Re: 46 ford light switch

The knob shaft needs to be rotated about a quarter turn to properly seat it (or remove it). The release slot is on the bottom of the switch. I've found it best to loosen the mounting screw from the...

Re: 48-50 F1 wiring question

Joe, I would start with the battery and check things from that direction. Pay special attention to the starter solenoid.

Re: What did I just buy ?

The serial number is on the passenger side frame rail between the radiator and the engine (as alan also stated). Careful with the abrasive action - a scotch brite pad is best.

The serial number for the 48-50 F1s should be in two places, on the glove box door and on the patent plate on the PS firewall in the engine bay. The first character of the serial number should be an...
