Re: 4 Blade Fan Removal

I rested the pulley backside on a pair or sawhorses (or maybe trimmed boards to clear the water pump), protected the pump from falling to the floor, unscrewed the nut a few turns, then used a hammer...

Re: Ford's 315-A Standrive "Milk Delivery" body...

I have seen stories of milk trucks with creeper gears where the driver would let it roll while dropping off bottles just like with horses. Did these do that?

Four Blade Fan

My '31 had a steel four blade fan on it when I got it. I've put a repro two blade aluminum one on as a precaution and making it easier to pull the water pump. Is the old fan worth keeping or is it...

Re: Best cooling fan for best cooling?

The two blade fan, with the fake water pump studs, allows you to pull the pump without moving the radiator. Donít forget the cardboard to protect the radiator, though!

Re: interesting cutoff switch

Re: Model A crashed by distracted driver.
