Re: Iola old car show

That's it! And I thought I must have looked a fool staring up in the lofty elevations of that barn! I remember another barn, somewhere in Wisconsin? It was also outsize, but it was round. Wish i...

Re: using the stock mechanical fuel pump with electric

Lawson, lots of guys carry spares. When the Covid 19 hit, I started a larder in the garage for spare canned goods, and as I understand, there is even a large group of guys that keep spare wives also....

Re: Iola old car show

Well, they must have torn it down. I haven't been there in years, but it wasn't merely "large", it was gigantic, and was a pole barn. To my recollection, it was down by the roadway at the lower...

Re: Iola old car show

Strange to me that all you midwesterners would rather talk about pancakes than the pole barn. To me, those barns are national treasures. Donít even get me started on cupolas!

Re: Period correct fire extingusher

Your legal but corrosive dry chemical extinguisher might well be converted to storage space for a good upgraded fire insurance policy. 🤨

Re: '39 trans to '37 V8?

Can do! The case is the same. Assuming you haven’t got the ‘39 yet, you can gut your own case and replace the innards with the ‘39-‘48 gears, and put on a ‘39 shift tower. Get hold of Mac Van Pelt...

Re: 37 Replacement seats

Anyone suggesting foam to replace the original springs hasn't the good fortune to have experienced the comfort of these seats on cross country trips.

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

C4P is correct. There are two different size cover gaskets included in the box. I don't know what the odd gasket fits. Make sure you use a small gasket under the nut on top or you'll have a big mess...

Re: Holy Crap! Kindergarten kids stamped my block. What do I have here?

An engine transplant may have had the serial number of the donor car obliterated.

Re: Hazard lights

Lawson, at your age, you ARE the hazard! :D

Seriously, hazard lights would be all four corners, while signal lights would be one side or the tother. You're pulling twice the amps with the...

Re: Best paint for painting over rust

Paint directly over rust is not going to stop the progressive damage of rust, but will hide it from view like an ostrich hides his head in the sand. If the rust is not removed completely, you must...

Re: Canadian 1946-1948 Mercury 114

This is correct. To make a long story short, post-war Canadian Protectionist laws prevented the import of American cars.

Re: Misery loves company

A devilish trick to pull on one of your highly organized buddies:
During his reassembly of an engine, slip an extra bolt into his parts tray. :eek:

Re: Mystery holes in Holley 94ís

While the location of the vent was changed twice as it was thought to be affected by air circulation, the timing of those changes was not related to the location of the fan mount.

Those holes are the correct locations of the factory vent holes, but they do look to have been goobered up by some misinformed soul for who knows what reason. They don't look nice, but shouldn't...

Re: Mystery holes in Holley 94ís

If I am understanding your description correctly, the hole(s) you refer to was the second of three versions of float bowl vents. The original location of the vent was an oval vertical slot at the...

Re: 1936 horn button light switch

??? My wife would get out the shotgun if I brought a complete steering box, shaft, and steering wheel into the house.

Re: 1936 horn button light switch

The circuit is completed when the horn button is depressed, which grounds to the steering shaft. The horn rod is simply a conduit, not part of the circuit.
