Re: Early Ford V8 Sales, Inc.

At the time I got mine there was a charge of $500 if you did not have a rebuildable core. You could have yours rebuilt or just swap for another rebuilt block. I don't know if this has changed since...

Re: smooth sidewall tires

Cooper Trendsetters have about the smoothest sidewalls I have found. I just installed a set on my 1951 Ch**y.

Re: 8V electrical system?

I ran my 1940 on 8 volts from 1968 until the total rebuild in 1982. I was not on the internet at that time so I didn't know the difference. It was just what people did back then.

Re: 1951 f1 on Velocity

I just caught a fast glance of "metric" stamped on the bottom pan. Some expert here should identify it from the size and shape, but not me.

Re: Engine stop leak

I tried that. Works much better stopping tubes on radiator, no effect on block. It will cure the running at 140 degrees.

Re: Coolant Stop Leak Options

I traveled this same road. Ended up with an engine that still ran hot and a plugged radiator. New engine and new radiator fixed everything.

Re: Gunfight at the OK Corral

When mine sounded like that, it turned out to be worn bushings in the distributor that was causing the misfires.
