Re: Battery Isolator switch

Lots of previous threads on this. Search this forum for "disconnect kill cutoff"

two seaters and four seaters have different good spots for switches inside the cabin.

Re: 1931 Ford 01A Coupe

That Hemmings listing shows an auto trans! The wheels are later type, but don't look too bad.

Re: Anyone Ever Built or Even Seen, An Original type Greasing Pit?

I've seen them in other states, too. Somehow in my career, I was aware of code requirements for vent fans to draw away gas vapors in the pit, sort of like bilge ventilation.

I have a vague...

Re: Is this head gasket seepage acceptable?

My seepage has stopped, so after it reaches the 1000 mile mark, I'll hold off on the antifreeze.

Re: Is this head gasket seepage acceptable?

I used a couple of these that have more meat than a heli-coil https://www.mcmaster.com/90259A154/

McMaster has thicker wall inserts, too. https://www.mcmaster.com/catalog/126/3504

Re: Selfmade a top boot

What is the function of the snaps then? I've never observed a roadster driving, but I assume the open leading edge billows up like an air brake or vinyl tops do on older cars?

Re: Is this head gasket seepage acceptable?

Re: Is this head gasket seepage acceptable?

I'm having the same problem. It sort of has small spits and the water level doesn't drop much to speak of after a 15 mile drive. I can live with that, but I don't want a major blowout 50 miles from...

Re: Water Pump Removal

I unscrewed the adjuster nuts to the maximum, so the rods were always supported at both ends. That was enough to get the pump in and out.

Re: Seat Belt Trimming

Thanks, Werner.

If those retractors are like the ones my Dad had in his 63 Impala, the center part has a windup spring and you put the belt in it and let it coil it up. Glad they work better...

Seat Belt Trimming

My seat belts are too long and I want to trim them, then fold over the end and secure it with glue. Can you recommend what glue to use? Thanks!
