Re: Gee Whizz...A New 'Barner

Welcome to the Barn! That is a very beautiful car! Good luck with it.
I started out here last year. Having been a Brand X'r for so long, I too am new to the flathead scene. The folks here are so...

I too attest to Charlie's top-notch knowledge, ethics, and personality. He has done an outstanding job with a carburetor rebuild at a very reasonable price, very quickly, and has answered every one...

Re: 34 Pickup Brake Adjust Screw Frozen

Happy New Year to all,

In case you're wondering, nothing new on the Adjuster Screw. We got all caught up in the holidays and will have to re-attack sometime in the new year. I'll post again when...

Re: 34 Pickup Brake Adjust Screw Frozen

Deuce: Thanks for the tips. I'm going to keep positive and hope that the existing screw will eventually come out. I must not have been very good this year because when I woke up this morning,...

Re: 34 Pickup Brake Adjust Screw Frozen

Not a good day yesterday. I tried four cycles of the heat and freeze along with blipping the impact gun in forward and reverse, and no effect. I even tried a cycle of just heat with no freeze. ...

Re: 34 Pickup Brake Adjust Screw Frozen

Terry,
I hadn't thought about the limited range the adjuster screw can be turned CCW and CW and it makes sense. Thanks.

One problem is the drum won't come off because the brakes must have worn a...

Re: 34 Pickup Brake Adjust Screw Frozen

It does fit on the stud well. Quality may be a question. Here are a couple of pictures of it compared to a 13mm socket made by Home Depot's Kobalt brand (which is also made in Taiwan). The Kobalt...

Re: 34 Pickup Brake Adjust Screw Frozen

I received the 7/16 square impact socket the other day.

I don't have an OA setup so I will do my best with the MAPP and CRC freeze. It will take longer than OA, but it's all the tools I have at...

Re: 34 Pickup Brake Adjust Screw Frozen

Vic,
No intention to force it (I've got a bucketful of snapped bolt heads already). I am going to try the heat and quench cycle. But, I ordered a 7/16" square socket from Amazon tonight because...

Re: 34 Pickup Brake Adjust Screw Frozen

Today's score: John 0, adjuster screw 2.

Heating, quenching, tapping, were of no effect (YET). These babies are in there. The problem is I don't have a proper tool to get a good bite on the...

Brake grease & eight point socket: Copy that. I usually put a little anti seize on threads that are in rusty area. Is this...

Re: 34 Pickup Brake Adjust Screw Frozen

Perfect, great info and just what I was looking for.

The adjusters are socked in tight. I've been soaking them with PB Blaster.

I'm usually the one who gets the heat out first thing and...

34 Pickup Brake Adjust Screw Frozen

Both rear brake adjuster screws seem to be rusted in place. Can heat from a propane torch be used to coax them out? I am not sure if there is anything inside the drums that would be damaged by...

I have a Dennis Carpenter gas tank in a cardboard box that was purchased about two years ago. It won't be installed in the 34 pickup for probably another year. Any suggestions on putting something...

DavidG, Tinker, Totto, and Corvette8n,

Re: 34 Ford Pickup - Intermittent Spark

I spoke to Michael at Third Gen and unfortunately, he doesn't have any 11A innards. Apparently they are few and far between. However, he does have the 68 innards, which have a better set of points...

Re: 34 Ford Pickup - Intermittent Spark
