Re: Cleaning out gas tank 1958 Ranchero

Thanks for all the replies. This is what I did....
Once I got it out and got the float assy out, I could tell it was only rusty where little pools of water had settled--not too bad.
I could also...

Re: Cleaning out gas tank 1958 Ranchero

I put the new tank in. I always use non-ethanol gas. My avatar is the only picture I have. Thank you for the fuel filter reference. Once I get the tank out, I will try to take photos to show the...

Re: Cleaning out gas tank 1958 Ranchero

Thank you KULTULZ. This was a brand new replacement tank from Bob Drake. The ORIGINAL tank was rusty and had pin holes and had the "sock". Maybe someone in the past put it in there. I am only...

Cleaning out gas tank 1958 Ranchero

I recently discovered I got water in my gas tank thanks to Hurricane Florence. Rust showed up in the see-thru fuel filter. I drained the gas and a lot of rust particles came out. I can pull the tank...

Re: Lowering my 58 rear on the cheap

I hadn't even thought about lowering blocks! 1 inch ones would probably do it. If I don't like it, I can always remove them. Thanks!

Lowering my 58 rear on the cheap

I would like to drop the back end of my 58 Ranchero a little just for looks. I don't want to spend a lot of money doing it either. I also don't want to stray too far from stock. I am not buying...

Re: 1939 - 1942 brake problems

If the brake hose to that wheel cylinder is old (and rubber) it could be deteriorated internally. This usually (in my experience) shows itself by a sticking wheel when the petal is released.

Re: Ford side glass "magic trick"

Thanks for the replies. Now that I have had a chance to ponder it, the 48 sedan has vent windows on the front doors. Maybe it was the back glasses that slid back. But the fronts on the 36 slide...

Ford side glass "magic trick"

I have a good buddy that was showing me a feature of his 48 Ford Sedan where the front (and maybe back) door window glasses open, first front -to-back for about an inch before dropping down. This...

Re: 292 y-block rough idle sudden drop in oil pressure

Might sound silly, but make sure the coil is wired correctly. They will run if wired wrong, just not as it should.

Re: Tappit noise

5w20 wt. oil sounds a little light to me for a y-block. That could be part of the "rattle" you hear. JMHO.

Re: self adjusting brakes.

I attempted to do this to my '58 Ford Ranchero. I quickly realized the slot for the star wheel adjuster was not in the right place for self-adjusting brakes. I determined it would require different...

1935-6 Ford pick-up glass channel source

I was wondering if anyone knows of a source for the door glass channels, the one that runs front to back that the glass mounts in? It is a metal "bar" that the regulator pushes up and down. Thanks!

Re: "B" Y-Block intake ready to install

Lancer,

That's a sharp looking hunk of metal! I have one for my 292 as well. Be sure to "blow it out" well to ensure there is no residual blast media in the runners. A friend of mine put on a...

Re: 1936 springs

An old rodder buddy of mine told me a trick about springs. Take out the top (shortest) 2 or 3 and it will give you a softer ride and a subtle lowering effect. I did it on my '35 pick-up. Just...

Re: 59 ranchero headliner

Sorry to hear about your mismatched part. I would have thought '57-'59 would interchange. You learn something everyday.....
I too am in the market for an original styled headliner for a '58!
