Re: Ford GT 2018 $1125000 BJ just now

I had a ecoboost V6 F-150. Before I sold it, I had Livernois in Detroit tune it and upgrade the turbos. It would out run and out tow any other stock truck out there. The Ecoboost is a great engine....

Re: 1936 lower radiator hoses installation

As mentioned previously. Are you certain you have the correct engine mounts? The 1936's angled down slightly to accommodate the issue you are having.

Re: 41 Distributor Helmet Style - Dwell

I have no need to go buy a dwell meter or use one on the car. Just thought I would try since you were inquiring.

Re: 41 Distributor Helmet Style - Dwell

I do not check them on the car so I can not attest to what brand tester to use. I do have a digital fluke meter that does dwell but again have never used it on a car. Maybe I’ll try it this weekend.

Re: 41 Distributor Helmet Style - Dwell

You should have 34-36 degrees. Going off your other post if you have petronix it’s going to read much lower.
As for pointers I check them in a sun machine but on the car just hook your dwell...

Re: 1935-1936 Ford Running Boards

Drakes have the dip. The cheaper steel reproduction from Howell's I think do not have the dip.

Trevor if you are still searching for original curved mouldings, shoot me a email.

Re: NOS front brake drums

Some 1937's are ribbed, so the only way to tell is look and measure. .. So, just because they are ribbed does not make them 36's. The 36's seem to be around in NOS form... Just last week I was...

Re: 1940 Front Wheel Cylinders

C&G does sell decent cylinders. I dont bench bleed the master cylinder personally. I just install fill and bleed the brakes as normal.

Re: 1940 Front Wheel Cylinders

Be cautious and watch the wheel cylinders while bleeding to be sure they don’t leak past the cup. Most new ones being sold are pretty poor quality depending on where you get them
