Re: 33 in the hills

This great story and this beautiful old Ford make most of us, and our cars, look pretty soft.

Re: for sale listing of the day!

When it's the last piece of the Ford puzzle and deep pockets get in the way of sound logic, it's shocking what one may do. Now get out there hold your nose, bid and buy! Then sober up in the morning...

Re: 1937 speedo gear failure/replacement

I'm replacing the drive gear which is engineered into the "turtle". It's served me well for thirty years to perhaps it's just old age. I will add a scoop of JD grease into the opening. I assume more...

1937 speedo gear failure/replacement

when replacing the speedo drive gear on my 37 Ford, it seems to me that it likely failed due to lack of lubrication. I use JD corn head grease in the U-joint. Why would the gear not be getting...

Re: Marvel Classic Motor Oil

Call me a believer. MMO worked to loosen up stuck valves in a 36 Ford LB engine parked for thirty years. I add 5 ounces at every oil change to my high-mileage 2008 GMC Sierra pick-up and there is a...

Re: '36 Ford pickup coming together....

Black is beautiful but near impossible not to be frustrated with. It's ice to see someone breaking the mold and choosing a non-traditional, easy-to-care-for color scheme. I like it a lot! Nice work.

Parking brake cables when switching a 37 to hydraulics

When switching a 37 Ford over to 39/40 style hubs and hydraulic brakes, do off-the-shelf (repro) cables still work, without any mod's to activate the e-brakes? Thanks in advance

I would think firefighters spraying large volumes of cool water to put the fire out, which found their way onto hot iron, may have created more of an issue than the actual heat build-up of the fire.

Re: Jack recall, chinese junk from Harbor Freight

Well said JT Ford. I don't wish bad on anybody but it's difficult to respect the Chinese government and their policies which have such afar-reaching repercussions on so many levels.
