Fuel tank dipping & sealing opinions welcome

Guys, just removed the tank from my '31 Buick I'd restored 23 years ago. The car has been in cold storage with fuel in the tank for the past 16 years.
The tank was, during restoration, acid dipped...

Re: Buick woodie wagon

Marcus, Tomcarman has suggested Hemmings on-line. I have had some good fortune with that venue as well although I'd never auctioned a car through them. I'd listed cars with an asking price on their...

Re: Buick woodie wagon

Marcus, If the car is everything you claim it to be, Bring a Trailer should be seriously considered.
Although wood wagons have taken a hit in value in the past five years or so, the Buicks have...

Re: Removing the Flywheel

Your flywheel most certainly needs to be resurfaced.
Removing the engine in your car is approximately a two to three hour task at most. This was hardly a huge burden upon the owner "back in the...

Re: Removing the Flywheel

You MUST remove the pan. You will not be able to get the flywheel assembly out of the opening without the pan being removed.

1/16" at a time is about right.

Now go remove the pan...

Re: Removing the Flywheel

The pilot bearing is integral of the flywheel. I prefer a shielded bearing vs. a bronze bushing.
It's a simple R&R without any special pullers, etc.

Re: Removing the Flywheel

If you've removed the four bolts, it is simply stuck. Large hammer with a block of wood... tap a little on one side, then 180 from that.

Re: Help with passenger's door handle/upholstery

Just a thought... to eliminate the possibility of the handle itself being worn, I might suggest you swap it to the other side of the car. If it works there, you know the handle is "good". If it acts...

Re: Help with passenger's door handle/upholstery

There are a number of clips on both vertical edges as well as the bottom horizontal edge.
Once the window molding and handles have been removed, you will pry the panel with clip away from the inner...

Re: Roll a 40 with no tranny?

The torque tube can't go too far as the floor will keep it somewhat restrained within perhaps 3" of travel. Hardly a concern.
I have placed a 2" x 4" between the wishbones as has already been...

Re: Filter oil return through hollow bolt on pump stand

This is the second design for 1940. For concourse judged cars, this would not have appeared prior to April, 1940.

Re: 12 colors available in 1940

Tinker, you are correct in everything you are so willing to share with us here on the Barn.
I want to thank you for your profound grasp upon, well, seemingly, everything.
Your knowledge of 1940...

Re: interior woodgrain

Jonathan has done numerous sets for me. I'd typically send him three, sometimes four sets at a time. He always came through when promised. Prices are reasonable and quality second to none.

Re: Filter oil return through hollow bolt on pump stand

This set up is the exact reason Ford went to their second design - dumping the oil to the timing gear cover. The issue with the first design was mechanics would place the return line where you have...

Re: Where do you CURRENTLY acquire a flow through electric fuel pump?

We will need to agree to disagree. Many of my cars sit for months as well. With little more than 15 to 30 seconds of the starter turning and the choke pulled, they all start.
It really comes down...

Re: Where do you CURRENTLY acquire a flow through electric fuel pump?

John, Are you a member of the Early Ford V8 Club of America? If so, you may want to read the rules of the concourse. It's a quick read.
The summary? The car is judged against what it would have been...
