Re: Car at auction

Bob, Your post adds considerably to the provenance of the car and should be of value to any new owner.
Are you able to provide confirmation that you have no interest in the sale?

Re: Best spark plug

I've never had a problem with Champion H10C. They're cheap as all get out and get the job done.

Re: Not Ford flathead but interesting 3D technology

Dave, If your engine is stock as you say, the fitting will screw into the aft driver side intake manifold. It will be a threaded hole near the manifold's mounting bolts, similar to another vacuum...

Re: redneck gas tank story

I was young and dumb when I sat on a fender dribbling gas into a carb while a friend drove blind (hood up) up a steep driveway after the car offloaded from a trailer in the street. I'm glad I'm not...

Re: Brake Adjustment

My '38 has mechanical brakes, but from what I remember about hydraulics, pump and release slowly to prevent bubbles, do the right rear first (farthest from MC), left front last (closest to MC). Back...

Re: Antique Auto Radiator Repair and Restoration

All I can say is that Jack Pankey (RIP) was saddened in the knowledge that his name was still associated with the shop after he sold it. I'm pleased to hear of your good experience, as my first...

Re: Correct float setting

If one were to rely on the flimsy cardboard square supplied with carb kits, you'd be lucky to come close to whatever dimension you decide on. Flatten a beer can, lay out the dimensions and cut a...

Re: The space in the double wall on the chassis

I haven't used Ospho, but 19Fordy's description of it sounds like my experience with Rustmort. I removed the caked on dirt and rust from my floorboard with putty knives and wire brushes, then slopped...

Re: Strange Noise

Check the condition of your motor mounts. Your fan blade may kiss the radiator on acceleration with sloppy motor mounts.

Pankeys was, yes, before Jack sold it... about 30 years ago? Jack was a good man, and I drooled over his 53 Beauty!

Re: Use of Slip plate to lube springs

Floyd, you're the man. I was thinking Slip Plate was just a brand name for Fifth Wheel lube. This stuff (Fifth Wheel) is greasy, sloppy, sticky black goo that does the trick.

Re: Pall bearers..

Another vote for Cracker Barrel. The wife wants some of their outdoor furniture. I want their food! Wish they'd expand to California!
