Re: Where is a '33 carburetor gasket?

A number of years ago, an outfit called “Carbco” in St. Louis was able to get me a gasket set for Detroit Lubricator carbs. I’m pretty sure you can google them and get a phone number.

I think this...

Re: 50 Car Heater Water Valve?

There was a guy who advertised in Hemmings in the "Services Offered" section who rebuilt heater control valves. I had him do the one on my '51 probably 15+ years ago and it was great work. May still...

Re: Unknown issue (year) of Ford Industries booklet

I have a '26 version, and a reprint of one called "Matchless Model A" that is essentially an update of the '26 version that looks to be '28 or '29 based on the photos of the cars (I'm going on...

Re: Who designed he Model T engine

New book out called "Michigan's C. Harold Wills: The Genius Behind the Model T". It covers his time as one of the first Ford employees and the work he did on the Model T. I think most historians say...

Re: Are these Model T parts?

I'm pretty sure the first two are of a '32 V8 fan. Fairly rare, but yours looks very rough.

Re: Is fuel bubbling normal

If the filter is a long way from the carb, I can't see how it's boiling. Even if it's close, I would guess it's simply air bubbles as the fuel drains a bit down to the carb as it's shut off. Check...

Re: More ?'s about vibration...

Definitely worth getting a knowledgeable person to take a ride with you, and/or let you ride in their car for comparison and diagnosis. There are a lot of things to look for and experienced eyes and...

Re: Carb expert needed

My GAV on one of my cars sometimes seems to be "insensitive" and has little to no effect under certain conditions. But when I adjust it when the engine is cold, or I'm climbing a fairly steep hill, I...

Re: MARC National 2019 Hotel Situation

I was also at the V8 Meet this past summer, and I found the hotel to be OK. I stay in hotels probably 30 weeks a year and it was more than acceptable. My room was great and the staff was very...

Re: 8BA Coolant Hoses

I bought some lower hoses from Carpenter several years ago for my '53 RanchWagon, and the Chinese quality was far worse than the previous USA-sourced ones they sold. The shape of the hoses was wrong,...

Re: Body height on a 32

Vulture is correct; there are a lot of relieved areas. I made my set years ago using a radial arm saw and a dado blade. It was a fun project.

I have a set of drawings of the boards that I can scan...

Re: How to protect cardboard interior panels from water damage

I did the "glue plastic sheeting to the back side" approach. I simply cut heavy black trash bags carefully to the size of the panel and glued them with contact cement. I was careful to make sure...

Re: Do you polish your balls?

I’m waiting at an airport and don’t have access to what I need, but there’s a recommended value for maximum wear/out-of-round. Check with a cheap micrometer or caliper. If you’re beyond that value,...

Re: K&W block sealer, impressive results, but lasting?

I’m liking the water pump theory. If the pump is not generating much flow, that side will obviously be a lot hotter. And when you rev up, you’re putting a lot more energy into moving water and it...

Re: Strange Electrical Occurence

I agree with Katy... my ammeter will stick occasionally when I turn lights on. Just tap the dash firmly and it frees up.

Re: Fender welting

Easiest way to think of it is that the welting lines up with and just below the vertical front edge of the door/back edge of the cowl. It goes where the two pieces of the splash apron bolt together....

Re: Understanding the oil filter canister ..

I have a '46 Merc that has a threaded boss welded on for a drain plug in the bottom of the canister. It's pretty handy. But I've used the turkey baster for years... works fine

Re: K R W Key Cutter

1930 Coupe,

You might want to contact Don Rogers on the early V8 site... he has the same set-up and I think he has early V8 codes.
