Re: Value of a 1940...

Good eye. That was part of the rare screen door option package.

Re: 52 v8 flathead heater

The heater core is as complicated as a radiator - mainly because it is one. The valve, once open, doesn't have any further affect on the flow. Heater cores can get plugged over time. I would remove...

Re: 52 v8 flathead heater

Does your valve look like this?

Re: 52 v8 flathead heater

Is your control valve mounted on the firewall?

Re: 1947 convertible

Did the firewall part look like this? There should be both an ignition resistor (smaller piece to the left) and the breakers in the box cover to the right.

Re: 1951-1952 f1 hood

Cabs (including doors) and grilles are also the same. Fenders are shared by F2-6.

Re: 1947 convertible

Do you have a fuel filter in the line?

Re: 1947 convertible

After installing the new condenser, if the 'no start' condition persists, I would check fuel flow. The new tank was a good move but the crud in the old lines may be haunting you.

Coil & condenser would be my starting point.

Re: Brakes

Leaking wheel cylinders is certainly part of your problem. Get those replaced as a first step. Getting to a firm pedal requires a sound fluid system.

Re: Make it Stop! ('46 Deluxe)

The fellow who sold me the cylinders was reputable and I didn't disassemble them before installation. That's part of my trusting nature, I suppose. Bear in mind, the brakes do work well - but only...

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

I paid about $3k for machining and new pistons /rods/bearings in suburban Milwaukee last year. The shop installed the valves and I handled the rest. Stock build.

Re: Temp gauge all over the place

You may have more than one issue.

Is the valve for the heater open from the head?
How is the fluid level in the radiator?

Re: Make it Stop! ('46 Deluxe)

Fair point. The wheel cylinders were from an old hot rod builder who was emptying his shelves. Not sure of the origin beyond his garage. One of them was defective - the bleeder threads wouldn't...

Re: Make it Stop! ('46 Deluxe)

I didn't have the shoes arced or the drums turned or checked. The MC rod was adjusted to minimize play. Once I have a more firm pedal, I'm expecting to encounter the next layer of issues. Will keep...

Since I'll never be accused of anything approaching concourse standard, what is the guiding reference? The Early V8 publication?
