Re: Restoring 1953 Mercury Medallion Assembly (front door trim panel)

I cleaned the paint off the back of the medallion. Then packed the crest cavity with wet paper to protect the crest while I painted the back. Then my wife repainted the crest. Now to make a new back.

Re: Picture of Holley carburetor float adjustment tool 9550-E

I know there is a multitude of ways to adjust the float height, as previously posted. But since I am normally knees on the front bumper, leaning over the fan and generator, to get to the carburetor,...

Just wondering is Testors Enamel model paint could be used successfully? As for stripping off the old pain, mineral spirits or something harsher?

Re: Restoring 1953 Mercury Medallion Assembly (front door trim panel)

Score the plate with the drumel saw and pulled the plate out from under the rolled edge. The pieces can be separated. Now it seams to be a matter of cleaning off the old paint and then repainting,...

Re: Restoring 1953 Mercury Medallion Assembly (front door trim panel)

The interesting thing is that the medallion was only used on the drivers side to cover the hole where the window crank was. On the passenger side they simply put the window switch in the same hole.

Re: Restoring 1953 Mercury Medallion Assembly (front door trim panel)

So far I have been unable to remove the rolled edge back plate. I did take a Qtip and put warm water on it to see if I could clean the back of the area that is open. The paint came off very easily,...

Re: flathead oil pressure?

Ol'Ron,

Would the oil pressure specs have increased for later engines, due to better engineering and materials for bearings, or clearances and tolerances? My manual for 1952 shows them a bit...

Re: flathead oil pressure?

The caveat to my prior post, is that the gauge and sending unit are probably close to the age of the car - 1953 - and I have not used a direct gauge to check either.

Re: Picture of Holley carburetor float adjustment tool 9550-E

The tool you are looking for was a Kent-Moore tool and discontinued before 1960, so good luck. You can simply use a good set of needle nose pliers to set the float level adjustment according to the...
