Re: Tips On Installing Stock Exhaust Pipes

I put a Waldron's dual exhaust system on my 40 coupe and it took some very minor tweeks but it was pretty easy as I have a friend with an exhaust tubing machine.

Re: '37 Ford all locked up

Remember, NEW does not equal GOOD. I chased my tail for 2 weeks before an old timer asked me to try starting the car while he looked into the battery with a mirror. Sure enough, one cell of this...

Re: 1940 Ford Coupe Headliner Question

I know I have one and maybe both, I also have the 2 pieces that get covered with headliner material along the edge of the windshield down to the dash. PM me if you need these.

Re: H&h

Re: Cobra Long grain vs short grain

You may not have much choice. Last time I did a fabric top you couldn't get the short grain. At least that was the case when I did my station wagon.

Re: No Oil Pressure While Cranking

Do you have a mechanical gauge on it? If you are cranking it with the switch in the off position the stock gauge wouldn't be in play. I would try it again, I don't think those stock oil filters get...

Re: Oil pressure with remote oil fllter

Also make SURE you don't get the hoses mixed up between where they leave and then re enter the block. I know of at least 1 engine that ran for a couple of days before locking up due to this. The...

Re: Remove rear quarter on Woody

Lots of mortise and tenons in these wooden crates! They usually have a big machine screw into a T nut or big wood screw into the tenon. The exterior stainless caps are over a standard T nut.

Re: 1934 Ford auction results

Re: '40 Ford visors

To make my 40 coupe driver's side visor "stiffer" I pulled the visor straight off the rod (there is a pointed rod in that goes in the length of it) and put a slight bend in it, pushed the visor back...

Re: installing engine

After verifying it has the correct clutch disk in there and it is lined up with the pilot bearing/bushing, try putting the transmission in gear so the input shaft doesn't move. Then while mating the...

Re: Crank pulley bolt...Lost again!!

I was thinking the same as earlyride, and perhaps the 2 surfaces (crank side and bolt side) of the pulley are not exactly 90 degrees from the centerline which would permit a wobble.
Also, did you...

Re: Again?! this time juddering at a stop

My vote is something due to the clutch or clutch linkage. It sounds like what happens when you don't push in the clutch as you come to a stop. Like after driving an automatic and forgetting you are...
