Re: Bob Drake '40 Gas Tank

Plus the stock sender won't work. If you get his sender, then it is not accurate with your gauge because it works on ohms instead of heat.

Re: Drake 1939 Deluxe-1940 Radiator

I think you are better off with Brassworks. For $100 more you can get a 4 row.
And you can skip the split design at no extra charge. Made in USA too.

Re: Drake 1939 Deluxe-1940 Radiator

Where is the Drake radiator made? Is the fins per inch count and capacity the same as stock? I would prefer to have one even better than stock.

Re: Extremely Frustrating Change in Fuel Consumption

Tires inflated properly? Muffler collapsed inside? Fuel leak(s)? Dragging brakes? Dwell and timing correct? Proper heat range on plugs? :confused:

Re: Ebay sales tax in place

It destroys the incentive to use on line ordering. Before we figured we would pay shipping instead of tax. Now its both. Back to the brick and morters. Its not just E Bay but all on line ordering...

Re: Flathead Alum Heads-Block Alignment

I wouldn't use aluminum. I would machine some bronze bushings and press them into the head. Then ream them to fit the bolts. Just like king pins. Problem solved.

Re: One last part needed! 1949 Woody!

It seems like when I follow these steps on my Sun machine, I end up with gaps that are smaller than the specs. ??? Trust gaps or dwell??

Re: '50 Ford Overdrive

There are allot more parts involved beyond the transmission, i.e. solenoid, relay, kickdown switch, wiring, cable, & clips.
