Re: Do I really "need" twin carbs????

Yes. You're well up on compression and displacement which will really respond to better fuel distribution. Truth be told, while ultimate power will be higher the mid range control and accelleration...

Re: 40 Ford coupe rear height

Did this happen? Wondering how you made out, what parts you used, shock angles, etc. I'm doing a 39 std tudor and will be adding tube shocks to a lowered car. I haven't decided if I'll do a panhard...

Re: Manners... A new rule...

It's nice to see that the ol 'Barn isn't a stepchild of Atomic Industies. I can only imagine the deep-rooted stress of managing what's essentially intellectual product/service.

1941 Ford radio

Here's a decent 41 Ford radio, looks to be Philco/Spartan based on knobs and face plate. It lights up but can't make it play. Price includes shipping in the lower 48.

Re: Sits a week, won't start

Dayuum Ted, sounds harsh! It's worse in the last 8-10 years than it was before. Used to be a matter of weeks, months, some would need a prime. Now it's days. And we're spoiled by injection on our...

Re: Sits a week, won't start

I think it is a 'new gas' thing. My Packard, my friend's Packard (3 of em), even the J-Duesenberg, let em sit 3-4 days the carbs need to be primed. The Duesy was delivered in 29 with a 3 stage...

Re: 1933 1bbl aluminum intake manifold

You know you need it for that perfect 33 restoration, right? Maybe yu want to cut it up and fab a race part from it.

Re: Cylinder honing?

Were the rings also "clocked" in proper sequence at the 1st build? They should all have their gaps on about 1/3 of each circumference, never close or all open to each other. I'm surprised how many...

Re: 1939 Tudor Deluxe seat

The special hardware is mainly in the center. You may be able to use some common fasteners in a couple spots, you (or they) might still have them and just don't recognize it. I'll shoot what's out...

Re: Original shock absorbers vs tube type

Well if anyone wants to get rid of your 39/40 rear shocks I'd be interested. I currently have nothing out back and tubes up front. I have no worries about running stock rears.

Re: 1938 Ford hood prop
