Re: Older OEM gaskets vs new gaskets

I'm not a dealer, but best gaskets are great. No issues.



Not sure older gaskets are made better. Don't know, never heard that. I think of them as a deterring item over time. Like rubber. But...

Re: 50 Car Steering Idler Arm?

Slightly lowered my old 53 front using new springs. Everything cleared fine, which is strange you would have clearance issues with a stock replacement idler. Maybe I read all of it wrong. :)

Re: 50 Car Steering Idler Arm?

I'm guessing this is a lowered car as well. Sidenote... Being there is no camber adjustment for fords 49-53 these brackets will save some tires. Think fatman sells them also. Probably a easy make,...

Re: Painting Copper Brake Lines

I have not seen the pictures, but I agree. copper looks great against black. Technically black is the absence of color. But it is a color really. Same as white, total light. Both effect color. But...

Probably so JS. I have never worked on a ford after the 60s. But makes sense.

Re: '38 rear brake spring - how to? @*&%^!!

tools are a good thing. You might only use it a few times but it's okay and easier. That tool will work up to the 60s.

Re: What is the gross vehicle weight of 1941 Ford pickup

Just a side note.

There are places to find weight of a vehicle. If you're friendly with a rock/gravel yard they can do it for free. DMV should suggest a place.

under 2500lbs sound lite to me....

Re: Last years body on this years car

Solid info, lot of things carried over through the yrs.

Is it a 32 without the v8? I would think a 31 with a flathead v8 would be all over forums. Never seen one.

Think putting a model a...

Re: how many cfm for two carb flathead??

Article also mentions a 12.3/1 compression. Maybe I'm mistaken. That's a shit load. Race gas only.

You can run a lot of carbs with jets reduced and progressive linkage. It's a village, all needs...

Re: 1939 pickup 1/2 ton engine noise

work out the fuel, lot of guys here that build carbs. CharlieNY comes to mind.

Re: tesla Truck

TJ, the consciences realistically to go "green" quickly (no fossil fuels) is nuclear power. Does make sense, but most of the plants we have were built 20 yrs ago. Technology is a gift and a curse! :)

Re: 8BA Low Oil Pressure

Yes... but early fords 38 "21 bolt" back to 32 only had one. At least my early 38 only had one for the oil sensor (maybe I got the only block). I had it drilled on the off chance I might use a...
