Re: Extremely Frustrating Change in Fuel Consumption

Tires inflated properly? Muffler collapsed inside? Fuel leak(s)? Dragging brakes? Dwell and timing correct? Proper heat range on plugs? :confused:

Re: Ebay sales tax in place

It destroys the incentive to use on line ordering. Before we figured we would pay shipping instead of tax. Now its both. Back to the brick and morters. Its not just E Bay but all on line ordering...

Re: Flathead Alum Heads-Block Alignment

I wouldn't use aluminum. I would machine some bronze bushings and press them into the head. Then ream them to fit the bolts. Just like king pins. Problem solved.

Re: Radio Polarity Help Needed

I used to have a '47 and changed the polarity of it. As I recall, there was one capacitor in it the needed to be switched around. Best to get a schematic and have a radio tech look it over. It is...

Re: UPS loses Package !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some time back, I ordered an 455 Olds crank from E Bay. It came by Fed Ex. Only problem was it came in two pieces. Somewhere along the line, it was dropped. That's one of the heaviest cranks out...

Re: Dwell ???

The gap is smaller than the spec on all lobes but the dwell is perfect.

Re: One last part needed! 1949 Woody!

It took me 5 years to find this trim for my car. The late '50 and '51 woody guys are looking for these too to dress up their cars. An ad in the Woodie Times finally did the trick. I found a rough...

Re: '50 Ford Overdrive

There are allot more parts involved beyond the transmission, i.e. solenoid, relay, kickdown switch, wiring, cable, & clips.

Re: Boling Bros. drums- Any issues?

I much prefer Speedway. Free shipping and no CA tax. Shipping is a big deal on drums! I wouldn't hesitate to buy imported drums though since 99% of them are now made offshore for all applications....

Re: 12V vs 6V crab distributor

I wasn't wrong. A 12 volt system and coil most likely will require a different resistor or none at all. Of course a given resistor will have the same resistance whether in a 6v system or 12v. The...

Re: 12V vs 6V crab distributor

Resistors may very well be different in a 12v system. That's why Bubba says to change it. Ohm's law dictates. The 12 volt coil determines the resistor needed if any.

Re: stubborn rear brake drum seal removal

Yes, use the right tool for the right job. Any auto parts store has them. They are a hook that snags them on the back side allowing you to pry them up.

Re: recommendation: turn rear brake drums San Francisco bay area ?

Buy new drums. They are not that expensive and good brakes are a life saver.
