Re: BeeHive oil filter, Original

My plasma cutter moisture filter looks just like a roll of TP, I wonder if it would filter oil?

Re: Staying Home is for the Birds

I feel your pain. I get “the look” every time I drag home a pickup load full of parts! In fact I’m going for some today, don’t tell her.

Nowadays it would definitely be a waste of good toilet paper!

Re: What happens in a transmission rebuild - Part 6

Thank you Mac,
I never really paid attention to how similar the later cases were to the pre 49 ones. How much, if any, internals are the same, or interchangeable?
I turned down some free later OD...

Re: Been dabbling in Stainless trim repair

Thank you for the offer. The good news is both of the dents are on the same piece. The bad news is it is the long curved piece on the passenger side quarter panel of a coupe. I doubt it will fit into...

Re: Been dabbling in Stainless trim repair

Nice work! I tried a cowl band from a model A, it came out ok, but not that nice.
I have a 47 coupe I’m working on that needs some trim repair. Maybe I’ll send it to you:)

Re: 1935 trunk support specs

So with all this time on my hands I decided to go ahead and make these. I did have a small piece left over from one of the old ones. So I used this as a measurement for the channel. It was a total...

Re: 1935 Ford Film Negatives-Any Info ??

That’s very interesting!
I’d love to see the film in its entirety. Maybe someone has a link to the clip.

Re: Flathead V8 radiator

Rose Bud tip!
That’s about like using a bon fire to cook a marshmallow!
A bit too much heat for a radiator. A smaller brazing tip will work just fine.

Re: 1935 trunk support specs

So this is what it came with, always puzzled me why they moved the supports to right behind the rear of the top/ window.
Also used some screws through the body, which look ugly to me.

Re: 1935 trunk support specs

Thank you Don!
That helps a lot, I guess I can estimate the width by the mounting holes. I also assume the dimpled area is where the tool tray mounts ?

Re: Radiator cap pressure AV8 build

I run a 7 lb on mine as well. Works great. Just keep in mind that your antifreeze is going to find its own level so if you fill the radiator to the top, it might leak out a little bit but don’t...
