Re: Oil filter oil line

That oil filter return line is on the to-do list for my ‘40. Third Generation Automotive in Tenn. told me they can supply both the hose and the banjo bolt fitting.

Re: 34 Ford Removing Cowl Lights then???

One bloke’s opinion:
Why remove the cowl lights? I have always (since high school) thought cowl lights are one of the cool details on cars of this era. Hot rod or not, cowl lights look good in my...

Re: Hello new member 1936 sedan with ?s

Just one man's opinion:
Why do you want to lower this car? With the appearance of the car as it now is, lowered suspension may just look like its riding on old tired springs. Why not just drive it,...

Re: Compression results

On my engine that had been in long storage, adding MMM to the oil did not help the sticky valve problem. But adding MMM to the gas eliminated the problem immediately.

Re: Photos posted for Stan White

Don’t both engines have a three bolt timing cover? Isn’t the crab distributor two bolt?

Re: Ford script battery companies

Donít you think those are the same, that the one sold by Jegs is made by Battery Central?

I ordered one from Battery Central last winter. Had to wait three months for it.

But no regrets....

Re: Rebuilt coil back from Skip Haney (41)

Re: How to remove light switch from dash '41 Ford?

Assuming the pull releases as it does on my '40:
There is an internal copper tab that catches a knob on the end of the pull rod to keep it from pulling out in normal usage. There is a small hole in...

Re: Center stop light.

I believe regulations are meaningless in this application. This is not a required item on this vehicle. These regulations do not apply. I'm not a lawyer, but I believe a home made stop light is not...

Re: Changed The Weight Of My Oil

I saw the flakes last year but thought maybe my drain pan had been contaminated on the shelf in the garage. But then saw it again this year.

The tiny silver flakes are not magnetic, do not...

Re: Changed The Weight Of My Oil

Re: Paint color for 1940 std faceplate instrument panel

Re: car pulls to left when braking

Why look at LEFT rear? He said car is pulling to the left. Weak side is passenger side.

Re: Upper air deflector installation

Don't most overheating problems show up in stop-and-go driving, not at highway speed? Isn't this deflector going to be effective only at speed? I don't see how this deflector can help the fan pull...

Re: 50 psi oil pressure gauge

"On initial start up the oil pressure can go as high as 100psi"

Don't our engines have a pressure relief/return in the oil gallery? At what pressure do they trip?

On my stock '40, when I pressure bleed the brakes I get one good long squirt out of the bleeder, then flow stops. Air pressure in the MC reservoir at +/- 9 psi goes down only a hair. If I pump the...
