Re: Your most useless NOS parts

Back on topic. I bought a set of NOS rear hubs that were not finished to size. They looked great but I could not install them with new bearings. They were about .005+ off.

Re: Your most useless NOS parts

If you do that just think how much increase in ads will come your way! They will know and share everything about your private life. Don't block out any vacation days! Just saying.

Re: 16" Wheels

Mine came with cutdown original wheels and used 600X16s. I traded out to 19s and like the looks better now. My avatar shows the cutdown wheels.

Re: Window Riser Handles and "Show Quality" Nickel Plated Escutcheons

If you are careful the handle parts that are visible won't get scratched or damaged. BTW who is doing the plating so reasonably?

Re: Your most useless NOS parts

NOS parts should be stored properly and protected. If people hadn't stashed away new parts and never needed them in the '20s-'30s we wouldn't be driving Fords today! Someone in the future will be...

Re: Window Riser Handles and "Show Quality" Nickel Plated Escutcheons

The area of the handle, if turned down and under the escutcheons would not be visible. Would you really need to replace them?

Re: Coupe Glass Replacement

Ok I don't get it. Why do the interior panels need to be removed? I have done this job more than once without any upholstery molestation!

Re: Coupe Glass Replacement

The quarters and back window shouldn't need more than the metal bezels removed to do replacement.

Re: Is this radiator worth recoring?

If it isn't going to be used, fix it cosmetically and paint it. Otherwise, replace it. Repairing it to a good working radiator will cost a bunch also.

Talking Re: Found Very Concerning Issue

Do your friends accuse you of worry/indecision too often? I'll add one more choice,
I like AlumaSeal powder.

I'm betting with a proper re-torque and a dash of stop leak you'll get things in order.

Hang it on a hook on the side of a shed and buy new. That rig will run nice and cool!

Re: Headlight Focus Procedure

The owners manual has the correct procedure. They are cheap to obtain and a big help.

Re: Checklist for startup after 10-month unplanned hiatus

The gas if not ethanol will be ok. Spinning it with the plugs out will get the oil pump working and oil the bearings. I agree with a shot of MMO in the cylinders won't hurt the rings any.

Re: Checklist for startup after 10-month unplanned hiatus

It only sat 10 months, not much needs to be done provided it was put away properly. I maybe would remove the plugs & clean them, check fluids, spin the engine over a few revolutions and replace the...

Re: Shave or not to shave?

High compression heads are available at most T parts suppliers. I was just saying shave to a flat surface for good gasket sealing.

Maybe use some heat shrink tube, a straw seems fairly thin.

Re: Shave or not to shave?

Starting with around 20 HP you won't notice too much. I would just make sure it was a flat surface.

Re: Timing Issue

If it is on wrong (tooth mesh), you will need to pull something anyway.
