Re: is it ok to run diluted antifreeze?

If flatheads ran hot you wouldn't need thermostats, LOL. The thermostats do bring the engine up to temperature quicker, but they are also required to maintain a minimum operating temp. It is not...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

I assume you have the cam timing specs? It is not totally clear from what you posted what lift you are checking at. The spec is for .020 valve lift with zero valve/lifter clearance. There is a...

Re: My '34 Won't Turnover

Around 37, 36 still had a floor starter switch and 37 had a firewall starter solenoid, but not sure if it was a model year change or not.

Re: Spark Plug Reading

Try taking it off and on and see if there is a noticable difference. Shortest path to a solution would be using an A/F ratio meter.

Re: 1940 merc & ford x member replace

What I have done is build up some frame sections by bending some sheet of the proper gauge and welding the new sections in (after cutting out the original center). They could also be bolted in.

Re: Removing upper steering shaft grommet

Might try rigging up a puller with a flat plate of some type with a hole in the center placed over the steering shaft. Then with 3 or 4 holes in it and bolts or all thread screwed into the bushing...

Re: Use of Slip plate to lube springs

Clem, what are you referring to as 600 weight? The stuff that is sold to the Model A guys? If so, several things here, first "w" doesn't stand for oil weight in general, it is for "winter" and has...

Re: Headlight switch

Re: Electric wiper conversion

Just checked and they don't appear to sell units for 33-34s, interesting.

Re: 1939 Sealed Beams

That and the "look", it made an older car look newer in the eyes of the beholders. Don't think many people were interested in keeping them original.

Re: Jacking 1939 model 91A

Bumper type jack were always like that, you have to jack the bumper way up to get a tire to clear.

Re: Headlight switch

The original style light switch parts should be fairly easy to come by, but if your not concerned about it being original, just use a dash mounted light switch (like Ford switched to in 1940). The...

Re: '41 won't crank when hot

Might talk to the rebuilder before you pull it just to see what he has to say.

Re: 1939 Sealed Beams

Ralph, I agree there are not as bad on the 39 to me, as they give it a 40 std look. It is really the 37 and 38s that I don't like them on.

Re: 1939 Sealed Beams

And they must have sold millions of them! A large number of 37-38-39 Fords have them! They are ugly by my standards, but at the time I'm sure everyone thought they were a modern looking upgrade.

Re: Autolite Spark Users Only

The exhaust entering the tail pipe will be a mixture of all the cylinders on one side of the engine and is representative of the air/fuel mixture for the engine.

Re: 1936 Ford rearend gear ratio and speed

You can run the numbers and get a fairly good estimate. What people are normally concerned about is the engine rpms.

rpms = (axle ratio x mph x 336) / tire diameter

To determine the mph at a...

Re: rear end oil

Not in a rear axle, GL5 is a transmission issue, not a rear axle issue. High EP additives can attach "yellow" metals, like those found in a transmission. That should not be an issue in a rear axle.
