Re: Mystery Missfire

I come back to an intake leak. A cracked intake manifold can be hard to find. Good luck and let us know what you find.

Re: Stuck wrench

Stay with it with the pry bar and anything else you can use. Take your time and "Worry" it off. It will come off.

Re: Driving The "A" In a Parade

If it sputters on the way home, your plugs are fouled. Just stop and clean them. You might clean them before the parade. If your radiator is good, you should not overheat unless the whole parade is...

Re: 10 years a roadster!

In the A, it was smooth, but not much power.
The '46 would move but I don't know what happened to it. The A engine stayed in it. By this time, I had a '40 Ford and was off to school. The back...

Re: Persistent intake manifold leak

No one has mentioned the flatness of the flanges that attach the carb. If they are not flat, and most are not, that tiny air leak can cause your problem. Hit them both with a file and clean them...

Re: 10 years a roadster!

Re: Start up w/o coolant, REALLY !

I don't know what you are trying to save. You have to re-torque it several times anyway. Never 2 minutes. Way too long.

Re: 10 years a roadster!

I had one like it in High School. Painted it red with blue fenders, then yellow with black fenders, then silver all over using aluminum paint. All done with a brush. Put an old V-8 60 in it. Went...

Re: Gas Aspiration Problem?

See if it will start using starter fluid. If so, you probably have an intake leak. Manifold to engine, manifold itself, or at carb flange to manifold.

Re: Zenith rebuilds

Sure sounds like you are going with a new Carb. After you get it and you still have a problem, check for an intake air leak. Put new manifold gasket on. Easy job. Also, make sure the two flanges...

Re: Zenith rebuilds

Before you buy a new one, make sure it is the carb. Put a known good one on to see how your car runs. Borrow one.

Re: Heater hose connection

For years members in our club simply use a cut up pop can. Roll it up, shove it in and let it expand.

Re: 31 coupe will not go over 40 mph

Here’s an easy thing to check that could cause your prob. Check the ferrule on your fuel line that goes into the carburetor. If more than about 1/16 in. of line is past the ferrule, it can hit the...

Re: Interaction foot and hand brake?

Get under and have someone do the brakes. You should see something moving. Your cross shaft may be pulled forward letting your pedal go deeper. Check pivots of both cross shafts.

Re: A Carburetor Story

I fixed a lot of “die out on stop” by just flattening out both flanges and a new gasket. That idle mixture can’t take any extra air. That should be your first move and it is easy to do. All you need...

Re: Fanology

The main thing is to have a very good fit of the hub to the shaft. It’s a tapered joint and the two tapers must match or it will pound itself on every rotation until it fails. A lot of bad things can...
