Re: Vapor Lock

Re: Vapor Lock

Every time a thread starts any where on this topic, there will be those who say that vapor lock doesn't exist. Had this same experience when I posted on an old Econoline website. I think the people...

Re: Tighten Fan Belt?

Thanks for the help guys.

I love that tool as well Vergil. I'm sure that Ford Service Departments way back when must have had something like this. I'm definitely going to take a spare wrench...

Re: battery disconnect switch.

I don't like the looks of the green knob type switches that attach to the battery terminal. As others have mentioned, my experience with them is that they burn or pit as well. I prefer rotary type,...

I am installing a fan belt on a 46 engine. Of course, this engine has separate fan and generator belts. My question? How can you apply tension to the belt and tighten it? I can't see anywhere that...

I'd like to start my thread over again now that I have my facts straight... I have a 42 engine that for some reason was set up with a 46 type distributor and fan. This leaves me with a crankcase...

Re: Need help with Fan Belt Numbers

ADDITIONAL INFO: It appears that the wrong belt may have been used on the car. All the listings that I find have the belt width at 7/8". This belt measures closer to 5/8". This places the belt flush...

Re: Need help with Fan Belt Numbers

The fan pulley on the later engine, mounts to the generator and adjusts up and down. A shorter belt should pull the fan down out of harms way.

Re: Need help with Fan Belt Numbers

I always pay the price when I don't proof read my posts. Excuse my typing. My brain seems to be out of sync with my fingers these days. At any rate... Any help from the experts will be appreciated.

Re: 40 Ford Stock Exhaust Size???

Thanks for the responses. I assume if I go larger, we're not talking stock and I'd have to have them made up?

Re: Holley 4000 - Advice Needed

I was so close on getting this thing to run well that I was hoping the very slight stumble might be the result of the accelerator pump. HOWEVER... The distributor certainly appears to be an issue. We...

Re: carb change

Frank,

I have a 63 Econoline pickup that ran a 170 originally and I later switched it out for a 200. I kept the manual choke however.

A couple considerations... Many of the in-liner experts do...

Re: 57 T-Bird Distributor Codes

Pony Carbs did the rebuild on my 4000. Still had issues even after the rebuild. I have always used Pony for my Ford carbs. They work miracles with Autolite 1100's. But not so great on the 4000.
