If you think you are running hot. take the stats out. Watch the change. Then do something else. Lots of possibilities, simple things are good. infrared reader to verify, not that they are good also....

Re: 21 stud flathead

Easy way to site a motor on first glance is, three bolts down the center is a 21 bolt. 2 down the middle, 24 bolt

Re: Best electric harness on the market??

Sacramento ford makes them by hand. Always been good to me. Lot of people have said good things about Bauer/harris too. Guess what you are looking for. Nice to have options, Sacramento in the past...

Re: Eckler Hack?

I figured this was a matrix glitch. Don't click on anything you don't know is real.

Eckler Hack?

Just received an email confirming an order I didn't make. Checked my credit cards, no charges. Maybe don't click any links if you receive one (fishing scam). Call from the number on their website.

Re: Function trumps Awesome

Vacuum seems low. Getting it to around 18-20 will help with the idle. But 3x2s might be the right vacuum. Big holes in the intake system.

Re: Use of a MIG welder for other purposes?

Thinking a tig welder would be better for rivets. But I guess tig is closer to a oxyacetylene torch.

1938-39 truck door mirror

I know this is better served in the wanted section. But I'm looking for a 1938-39 ford door hinge pin mirror. I can get an aftermarket one. I prefer not. A good original if available, pm. I don't...

Re: Best way to fix this header

It's just steel not cast iron. Weld it like anything steel. gap is large so address that. I'm guessing you can weld something.

Re: 1938 Ford Pickup wheels/tires

I run tubes also. Not a big deal. Some line the old rims with duct tape or get rim liners if you think needed. Tubes are fine. Why would you trust tires on a wheel and not tubes. 20 yrs now on tubes.

Re: Stumbling, hunting and missing

Electronics can be a bit of wizard stuff. But it's really not that hard. 90% of the time it's fuel related. As a solid electric system works... most of the time, if fuel cooperates.

Re: Crab distributor 6v to 12v

Points and coil still need 4 volts. 1957 ballasts in the system will work. coil restiance makes up the difference. Ford ran 6 volt dizzies on 12 volts after 1954. Just used a ballast coil resistance...
