Re: Wheel stands

Just wondering how you get the car up high enough to place them? My floor jack will not lift that high.
Thanks

Re: Post war brakes question.

Yes those springs are strong. Just did a front brake on the 46 pickup. With the right tool it is easy. Here is my old Craftsman plier. Plenty of leverage from the long handles.

Re: 47 pickup second gear pops out

Thanks for the response rotorwrench. Sounds the shifter dedents play a minor role. Can that be done on top or even worth checking?

Re: Modern Ford Q?

:) Well that's for sure. I am 81 and find that happens even with a beautiful wife of 61 years and still yearn for the past. She says get over it! :)

Re: Mercury Ignition Key

I agree to call Phil and discuss your situation with him. He can certainly cut a key from the door cylinder but a worn ignition cylinder could be the problem.
