Re: 32 Ford mystery photo

The tan Vicky on 16" wheels is an English car, belongs to John Llewellyn. As someone pointed out, no cowl lamps, sidelamps on the wings (fenders). The mystery car has cowl lamps, not legal here.

Re: Folding top for 28 RPU?

490 US + shipping, UK import duty, sales tax. Looks like I will design my own :-)

Re: 36 acceleration pump

I had to completely strip and clean my carb. One emulsion tube was blocked, the hockey sticks were bent and blocked. Don't just chase one problem at a time, strip and clean it properly.

Folding top for 28 RPU?

Lebarron Bonney used to do a horrifically expensive folding top for the Roadster Pickup. Does anyone have dimns so I could make one myself?

Re: Jensen S1

Let's not get too hung up on the Gable car, it's been discussed ad infinitum. It's clearly based on a 36 - Gable may have placed the order in '34 but he got the car in '36. The car was photographed...

Re: 35 deluxe fuel gauge alternative

My 35 needed a new tank so it has a 36 style tank with a modern sender, with an original 36 gauge. The modern sender isn't fully compatible with the gauge, but I have it calibrated to be correct at...

Re: Bubba rant ???

I would tell Mr Cranium that he seems to have returned the wrong item, as it's obviously not the one you supplied, and therefore you would like the correct item returned.

Re: Oil around spark plugs

I've had this on a Model T engine. The oil is sucked past the piston rings. Haven't worked out the physics but get the plugs sealed and it goes away.

Re: French Ford pistons...Looking for a value please

Just to confirm, the Vedette used the V8-60, but there were variations in design. I believe some parts are tricky to find, but I doubt an incomplete set of used pistons have value.

Re: 1938 Ford 2 door hump back distributor problems

I had problems getting my divers helmet to rev over 3000rpm, and you need to rev a 60 - partly cos its power is all up the top end and partly cos the factory put such a high rear axle in. So I am...

Re: 1938 Ford 2 door hump back distributor problems

If the coil & condenser check out, take the unit off - there's not much you can do standing on your head under the hood. You only need to click off the caps, disconnect the vacuum line and undo 2...

Re: Helmet style distributor 85 to 60hp

Those 7500rpm motors we're obviously running hot cams, hi-comp heads etc, I don't know what they did for ignition. Kurt said he ran 74mph, that has to be around 4000rpm as he was probably running a...

Re: Helmet style distributor 85 to 60hp

If you look at the power curves on the Van Pelt site you'll see the 85 curve drop off at 3800, while the 60 is still going up at 4000. V8-60 midgets would pull up to 7500. It's a motor that wants to...

Re: Helmet style distributor 85 to 60hp

The 60 needs to rev more, I couldn't get my helmet unit running properly at high rpm so went to the new crab style electronic unit.

Re: Fords made in england

Pity you can't see a copyright date on the film - the blocks are not tinsides. I read somewhere they were phased out by early 37, but that would mean there were very few sold in the US. Unless the...

Re: 35 I bought

Welcome to 3 window world! One tip: don't leave anything on the rumble cushion and then close the lid - it slides back and jams the lid so you can't open it.

Re: "self" woodgraining

Jenny Llewellyn here in the UK was the acknowledged expert, did Facels, Caddys etc as well as Ford's. Sadly like many craftspeople she passed on without training up a successor. Her secrets are lost.

Re: Model 60 at Bonhams UK Auction Sun 7th April
