Re: Clutch Issue On My `35

Thanks `40 Cpe and V8COOPMAN. I will try this procedure in the Spring. In the meantime I'll try blocking the clutch pedal down.

Believe me, I have missed the 'Barn too!

Clutch Issue On My `35

My`35 Cabriolet has been sitting for awhile and now the clutch won't release. The pedal travel is good, just won't release. It was fine when parked. Thanks.

Re: FL&WVMIKE (Mike Burch)

My wife and I had dinner with Mike and Joan just last week in Spencer, WV. He seemed to be in good spirits. We always saw Mike on our trips to Florida. He was a good friend, we will miss him..

Re: My wife says it's just a box. I say it's awesome

Re: Not a flathead V8

Re: Flathead Longevity

The only weakness I know that the flathead has is overheating. I ruined a perfect `40 engine back in the mid 50's. A careless teenager didn't see the heat gauge in time.

Sounds like pre-ignition but it can't run backwards but for a few revolutions. The pistons would shove the fuel back to the carburetor.

Re: 1951 F-1 Grille Paint

I found this guide on an earlier post later last night. It does not mention 1951 grilles but does the `52. Sungate Ivory it will be! If I can find it..
Thanks to all.
