Re: Storing a Gas Tank - Prep?

They sell fogging oil in spray cans, maybe that would protect the tank. Store it indoors.

Re: Fake, Phony, and False

It is the truth and may apply in this scenario. Also it was stated in a context answering another statement. Yes I have nerve to state factual observations.

Re: Model T Transmission

When people drove their Model T's in their era the bands were constantly adjusted and relined. Best way to give longer life to the bands besides Kevlar is to engage the bands quickly, and not...

Re: Emergency brake pivot bolt

I would be tempted to follow the book. But then the shoes you are using are aftermarket so it might be asking questions from the maker of the shoes.

Re: Your thoughts and advice needed.

Might be a '14 but has a later body from the hood former back, and electric lights. It would be good to verify the year of the chassis. Depending on what is truly missing I see $2500 - $4000.

Re: Exhaust manifold glands

If they are installed properly they shouldn't migrate. The ones made of actual pipe would be more secure anyway. Ford wouldn't have spent the money to add them if they were unnecessary. They are used...

Re: 59A Flatty. A good candidate for rebuild? It's full of sludge!
