Lane Motor Museum in Nashville, Tennessee where I volunteer has this 1933 Dymaxion replica. Yesterday they had the access cover off so I was able to check out the Ford flathead V8. I thought you all...

Re: Where does your 53 Ford run?

It was hitting but now it's not. I had to run a shorter belt on the fan. The original top tank did not have any over hang but the new Champion radiator from Jegs does. Also I replaced the thermostats...

Re: Where does your 53 Ford run?

I appreciate the response from everyone. When I got off work tonight I drained the radiator and pulled the thermostats. Radiator appears to be clogged in serval cores and both thermostats were 195s....

Re: power valve

I just went through troubles with my 94. I sent my carb to Charlie. Got it back last week and the car runs great.

Re: Rear spring spreader

I used the deluxe version from Snyder's and have no complaints. I don't think safety should be judged at how little of it you can get away with. ...

Re: Where does your 53 Ford run?

I drove the car into work this morning to give one more go and test with a IR gun. I got to work which is a 9 mile drive and she was riding on the tic mark to the right of the wide white bar.

Re: Where does your 53 Ford run?

Tubman I do not know what thermostats is in the car. I work weekends but plan to open it up Monday and find out. I'm a bit nervous to drive the car as is. I'd sure hate to cook that motor. Also my...

Re: Where does your 53 Ford run?

Drove the car in today. The picture is the temp driving in this morning with outside temps in the 70s. When I got off outside temps were mid 90s. I drove to my parents to pick my son up and I checked...

Re: Where does your 53 Ford run?

Tubman I'll see what it does when I turn it off the next time I'm out.

The coolant looks really clean but I did notice there is a 13lb cap on the radiator where I believe it should be running a...

Re: Holley 94 on 1953 Ford

Update: I got my carb back from Charlie in NY and got it put on today. I did not adjust anything and the car fired right up. No gas smell, no black sooty smoke, just a smooth running flathead. The...

Re: Holley 94 on 1953 Ford

This morning I filled the bowl up to the hole that goes to the pump plunger and in a couple of hours it had gone down over half way.

As recommended by many I got in contact with Charlie NY and...

Re: Holley 94 on 1953 Ford

I pulled the top off of the carb and poured some fuel in the bowl. While standing there I could see it start to drop out of the nozzles in the ventura. I pulled the power valve but did not see any...

Re: Holley 94 on 1953 Ford

Mixture screws are a 1/2 turn out. Idle is set to ear. I have dwell meter that also reads RPM but it flaked out on me. Also I have not checked the timing or whether the advance is working. The car...

Re: Holley 94 on 1953 Ford

It was my assumption that if I was able to run the mixture screws in and the motor shutoff then power valve was not blown. This maybe a poor test. If I screw either mixture screw in the motor will...
