Re: Selling a vehicle and money questions...

I discussed this with my banker. The bank gave me a 'temporary number', good for the one transaction. When the funds were posted, they were transferred into one of my regular accounts, and the...

Re: Complete 8BA Flathead - what can I expect to pay

good luck. The disassembled rust bucket was/is overpriced.
I've had real good luck getting a few (very few) that are unusable. You take your chances. It would be better if you knew the person, and...

Re: 34 body to frame bolt locatons

On my 4-door, it was every available hole on the rails. On the X-member, I'm not so sure. There was a recent thread on here about body bolts for a cabriolet, and someone posted how many bolts are in...

Re: '40 Rear end axle help

And, I've always liked dealing with them (Bill & Michael), and, they have always had whatever it was that I was looking for. They ship, and they will stand behind something like axles. If one slips...

Re: Oldest daily driver... with highway speeds

I haven't been able to understand why op sold the 66 in the first place. Seems like 'offer can't refuse' is, and was not, a good reason. My situation is pretty similar. Daily driver is a 69, which I...

Re: estate sale, so cal

I also believe Bernie was a wonderful guy. I'm proud to have called him my friend. We shared many great 'chats' (He did most of the talking). I first met him and Margaret on an EFV8 tour to Death...

Re: 34 body bolts

When I put my 34 sedan body down, All of the bolts that David mentions, were used. But, my sedan bolt count was in the '50-range'. So, I wonder, is a Cabriolet different, meaning less bolts? Anyway,...

Re: What oil to in a steering gear box?

I've been using Penrite. Problem is, if you add cornhead, or Penrite, or any other similar, on top of something that leaks, then it's still going to leak, at least until the last of the leaky stuff...

Re: NOS Airtex Fuel Pump - Worth it?

150 can, wow. Last (and only) pump I bought was a old 'rebuilt' one that had been stored many years. Because it was old (but still looked clean and fresh), the seller asked 5 dollars (us), and...

Re: Lots of great 34 Ford footage! Netflix Highwaymen

I'm not so sure about that... The version that I read, had the car being TOWED to town, and I think with bodies in it???
And, the "over 100 rounds", not sure of that, either. I've seen the car many...

Re: 34 body to frame bolt set...where does it all go?

There should be old threads on this. My recollection is that there are over 50. The majority are 'vertical', and just a couple per side that are horizontal (below the front floor/toeboard).

Re: Distributor cam lube.

I've been using the lube from one of these Standard Lubricam tubes, for years. Maybe 40 years or so. Sparingly. It seems to work great. Stays on the cam, does not migrate, does not get 'thrown...

Re: Headlight options for 6v

I've got Cibie on a couple of my cars. (7-inch, round, like 6012H used on most 50's, 60's cars) They are not flat, but rather, convex, shaped like originals. They take the H4-type bulb. I've had...

Re: start on 12v run on 6v

Look in Rumbleseats writeup. I have used his system in my own 47, for several years. Works good for me. As alluded to above, it's a total-loss system. I used a small (80 Fairmont) battery. The rest...

Re: Stuck Piston Rings

MOC.... that was the name on the can. I think it stood for Motor Oil Conditioner, but I'm not sure of that. It's been a long time. I was introduced to it in the late 50's, when there were several...

Re: Stuck Piston Rings

That was the 'magic stuff' back in the 50's. Or, at least it was in the little shop I worked in. And, IT WORKED. Temporary downside was, it smoked the neighborhood for awhile. It sure freed up...

Re: '37 21 Stud, 85 hp flathead now has water in the oil

37 engine, you say. Does it have the pumps on the block, or the head?
If it's pumps on the block, then there is a saga that you might want to consider reading, I think in an old V8 Times.

Re: 302 in a 33/34 pickup

A man after my heart. When I've done one of these 'half-breeds', I've always lived by the philosophy of putting it in, with NO modifications that can't be removed easily, leaving NO evidence. NO...

Re: 302 in a 33/34 pickup

Many years ago, I did a 289 conversion, and I assume the 302 is about the same. From my vague memory, I don't recall problems, just 'stuff' to deal with. I never butchered the firewall, just a gentle...
