Re: electric fans for mustang 302 in 49 part 2

I agree with rotor. My avatar '50 has a 302. Same shape front end as '49. 6 bladed flex puller fan. No shroud. Never ever heats up-not even a needle width on 100 degree days. Wonder if there is not...

Re: Gets warm and quits running?

GM.......you are exactly right. All I really know is that the one I have now is not breaking down-yet. I was told my NAPA "good" coil was made in Mexico and even then it is cheaper for them to...

Re: 1938 Deluxe

Think this happens to all of us that have a similar looking model year car. Had a guy tell me my avatar is a '49 and I was wrong that it is a '50. He would not be convinced-good thing it doesn't...

Re: Where does your 53 Ford run?

Temp will up after you turn the engine off. This is called "heat soak" and is normal.

Re: I picked up a cheap 38 standard and put it on the road.

What a fantastic story-especially with your daughters, makes my heart smile to see families such as yours. America needs more dads like you. I commend you!!

Re: 1951 Rear Quater chrome tail light spears

Maybe try Michael Jones, Obsolete Ford Parts Co., 229-686-2470. I just got some new trunk lid hinges from him-another hard to find parts for my avatar.

Re: 64 Galaxie front drum brake issue

I had the same issue on a pickup years ago. The "mechanic" put the return springs on wrong. I told him if I had wanted to have them screwed up I would have done the job myself!!

Re: My beloved Mustang V8 67'!

Welcome to the Barn.I had a green '67 and the paint was called Spanish Moss Green. Try lacquer thinner on the rubbers-usually works wonders.
