Re: Never rent your car to the studios

I used to have a decent '54 Chevy convertible until I rented it to the studio that made "The Hunter".

Re: Pulling engine

Odd, with the dozens of standard shift cars I have had since the late fifties (some for many years and many miles), I have never had a throwout bearing go bad.

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

Here's some interesting information. I have a 1999 F150 beater pickup. Being that it has spent its whole life in Minnesota (most of it in the twin cities area) it has some rust problems. It has...

Re: Pulling engine

In my 60 plus years of doing this I have never heard "thrust bearing"; always "throwout bearing". As "marko39" states, most engines have a "thrust surface" on one of their main bearings, which I...

Re: Mart's Crusty Flatty Part7. Bring on the Stunt Block.

I have one more suggestion. How about trying to remove one or two of those broken studs using the "bolt-washer-welder" method (or whatever you feel might work best)? I. for one would find it...

Re: Thermostat for 59AB

Listen to Jack; I don't think you have the right thermostats. With the price of thermostats being what they are, it's foolish to try to use something that obviously doesn't fit.

Re: Seeking a jack for 1933 sedan

This is true for guys like us; but they are a boon to the "great unwashed" out there.

Re: Step x Step = Posting Pictures

Tom, please reconsider your decision to discontinue posting. At least take a while to reconsider your decision. As soon as I saw the first critical post, I tried to call the guy out on it, as I think...

Re: Looking for spark plug wires for my C69

"Hot Rod" engine or stock? For the later, go with the above suggestions. For a real hot rod engine, make your own using Packard 440 wire and Rajah spark plug terminals.

Re: Step x Step = Posting Pictures

Probably because it's the only picture of the car he has. AND, this thread is about posting pictures NOT '32 Fords.

In addition to my "Trash Can" condensers, I have available an electronic device that allows just about any current 12 volt negative ground tachometer to be run on a 6 volt positive ground vehicle. It...

Re: gasoline

This subject was addressed on, I believe, the H.A.M.B. several month ago. The general consensus (backed up with some good data and examples) is that it is labor intensive and ineffective at best and...

Re: My "new" 260 inch Merc is a BEAST!

First of all, congratulations on you new engine; it's good to hear that it runs so well. Here's something else to check, since you are running a 2GV. I am running one on the 255" Merc in my '51 Ford...

Re: What is the price of a rebuilt flathead??

Re: 1947 clock not working

Probably; I would imagine that a properly-sized resistor would have to be used. I'm just guessing on this, but if you are interested, I could ask my partner who is an EE and knows about such stuff....

Re: oil pump

Yes, please try to let us know what you find. I used a "Speedway" oil pump on the last engine I did. Upon initial fire-up, the oil pressure was quite a bit lower than I was used to, so (after some...

Re: 1947 clock not working

Might not be the same, but mine (electric-wind) had two wires going to it. One without a fuse for the light; another with an inline fuse for power.
