Re: Carburator paint ?

Daves55, I think the re-plating is the best way to go. Any painting process will certainly be damaged with ethanol fuels. I had previously bookmarked this video that has a lot of information on the...

Re: P & G Valve Gapper

Years ago I was trying to find one of these. I always thought this was the most accurate way to adjust the valves. I do remember Walt's many contributions in the past. The quarter turn is also a good...

Re: Assembling with STP

Big-Foot, Thanks. That is a great tip. Using the 2 stroke oil for lubing the pistons and rings makes perfect sense. I have a bunch of the stuff laying around since I now buy the pre-mixed fuel for my...

Re: T-Bird Battery

A few years ago you could get a Motocraft 29 series battery at local Ford dealers. I think they were used in trucks and some industrial applications. - Bob

Re: fuel gage

By your description it seems the electrical part of your fuel gauge circuit is in order. I would suspect the float arm somehow hanging up around the 1/2 tank mark. I have also seen gauge pointers...

Re: 46-48 flathead engine color

I just checked my "1941-48 Ford Book", published by The Early Ford V-8 Club of America, and it specifies blue for 46-48 and green for 41-42. On page 5-3 it also states that "oil pans in all cases are...
