Re: Oil cooler for C6 transmission

On my '54 panel with a 390, I couldn't get to the cooler ports in the radiator. I mounted 2 stacked coolers side by side at the bottom of the radiator, I also had a trans temp gauge.....it rarely saw...

Re: Anyone part of the Early Ford V-8 Club of America Southern California Regional Gr

Re: Fire Extinguishers

Every car has a 5lb Halotron extinguisher. No shaking, no mess and they have a longer shelf life.

Re: Radials on a 37. Yes or No??

I like the square commercial tires, they look close to bias. Last 2 panel trucks ('54 F100 and '56 Chevy) both had/have 215/85 lt16's on them (the F100 had 16x5 wheels and the Chevy has 16x6).

Re: Oldest daily driver... with highway speeds

I get the point of the OP. The fact that they CAN go over 200k, have a/c, ps, pdb, pw, a super smooth ride is irreverent if you want character and a soul. It's like a time machine to those of us who...

Re: Looking For A 15" Modern Radial Tire

I've used 215 on 5" wide wheels without crowning, but I would say no wider. I would look for some type of commercial tire as regular 75 series car tires look too balloony to me, the sidewall bulges...

Only real issues with those are window regulator/motors, some have fuel pressure reg problems and some have a problem with trans pressure solenoid.

Re: Bendix brakes

I have a older Bendix setup on my '47 (front and rear) and had 2 sets of aftermarket drums that were totally warped (different vendors but same manufacturer). Next set of drums will be the Lincolns.

I figured there would be a good old timey radiator shop in the LA area that could tackle the '36 radiator.
