Early Ford V-8 Club of America

Re: Pressurizing the oil system before initial startup

Good ideas. No plugs. Heavy oil in pump gear. Also the garden sprayer. I wonder if they can push 15W40 Shell Rotella oil.

Need help identifying these wheel covers

I think the Ford wheel covers may be from the late 50's to 60's but I am not sure. Anyone able to pinpoint the year and model these are from. Thank you.

'40 Ford visors

The driver side visor in the '40 coupe is very stiff, probably hasn't been moved for years. It is hard to flip it up & down. I tried moving it back and forth a number of times, but it's still stiff....

Re: Cleaning an early aluminum intake

For the pessimist's information the marine hull cleaner didn't touch the Ford Aluminum manifold. Maybe some type of aluminum but not a Ford casting in my experience.

Re: Bubba's Ignition

As you probably know, Jim handed over the Chevy dist. conversions to Charlie NY. Charlie just did a 21A for me, as I felt Jim was backed up with the health issues. I wish him well.

Re: Remote oil filter

Thanks again. I found the WIX 1085 filter I use on the Jeep 4.0 has 3/4-16 thread. So I am on the right track as that size is not too large. Now to check the footprint.
