Re: 1939 Ford-Mercury door pillar

That is a bad area to repair. Better check the rest of the car for serious rust. It is always more serious than first appears.

Re: Running without a torque tube center bearing ?

A good pipe fitter could do this but the driveshaft would have to be out anyway.That would almost guarantee the next bearing will last longer than you do.

Re: stubborn rear brake drum seal removal

On my 39 I used two small screwdrivers to pry it out. You have to be careful not to distort it.

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

From you pics. It looks like your adjuster is way out. Have you checked the adjustment ? Is your steering wheel centered with wheels pointed straight?

Re: Greasing

If old grease is dry you can warm up with a heat source. I had a old truck that most fittings would not take grease and a few minutes of the torch fixed them. You should try a heat gun first.

Re: Grill screen air flow

What actually causes the reduced airflow is the pressure loss across the screen. The finer the screen the higher the pressure loss.
