Re: new engine start-up problems

The fuel regulator set to 0.5 lbs might not actually be delivering any fuel. Set it to about 2 lbs.

Re: 1939 ford flat head wont fore after a rain

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Just a guess but I'd be looking for some sort of water leak that may be dripping onto the ignition leads.

Re: 32 5W coupe question.

Thanks David. I'm sorry, I should have said it is an aftermarket frame. (Saved you the long typing exercise). However, the info you have laid down is perfectly valid and might help someone else. My...

Re: 32 5W coupe question.

Thanks for the further clarification, David. My friend just checked and his body is sitting too high at the rear. It affects all the alignments at the hood and firewall.

32 5W coupe question.

A friend has a 5W coupe. It has been pieced together. Can someone help with a key dimension?

What should the clearance be between the lower end of the rear of the body and the top side of the fuel...

Re: pre-war bumper jack ID

I think I can read St Joseph. (St Joe as stated above) is that a well known brand?

Re: 33 5w coupe rear window drain tube.

David, absolutely no need to apologise. We all appreciate your valuable input. I agree, dumping water down into the quarter makes no sense. In my case, there is no bottom to the quarter anyway,...

Thanks Will. I hope the early Ford tech content proves useful to people. I've described the process many times on here. Having it in visual format normally helps.

Re: 33 5w coupe rear window drain tube.

David, are you talking of the hole circled in red? In my coupe there is a clip where I have circled in green which still has the remnants of a hose in it. It's hard to tell for sure, but there looks...

Re: 33 5w coupe rear window drain tube.

My 33 5W has a pipe clamp on the rear wheelwell to guide the drain pipe. I'm not sure where the pipe is supposed to exit, but it appears to dump out behind the rear quarter onto the rear part of the...

Re: 1942 Mercury rebuild vlog

It looks like a great start. You have some great parts to go in it as well. I love all that old ex military stuff.

Re: E 3 spark plugs

Re: Thread - I screwed up

If you have a reliable temp gauge you could always rig an override switch so you can turn it on manually if stuck in traffic on a hot day and start feeling nervous. I have electric fans on my three...

Hello! Welcome to this week's nonsense from Mart's Garage. I play with the Ol' 59 flatty. I finally receive the shocks for the 32 sedan and guess what? They're no good. I do a bit on the 33 coupe,...

Re: NGK Plugs

Personally I wouldn't use a gap as big as .035. The HT side of the ignition can be a weak point and the spark will try and go anywhere except across that plug gap. It takes a lot more energy to jump...

Re: Anyone use these drill/tap all in one?

I think they're made for home gamers with a hand held drill/driver, Sam, not an automatic tapping head in a milling machine.

Re: Anyone use these drill/tap all in one?

Not used them, but have seen them reviewed on Youtube. The problem is you need to go fast for the drill and slow for the tap. I think they are ok in relatively thin metal. For example, how can you...

Re: 1937 Ford V8 Steering Box Bushes

The split is just a consequence of the way they are made. It's a flat sheet rolled into a tube shape. The material is probably a lamination and would be produced flat.
