Re: Been dabbling in Stainless trim repair

Interesting thread! I've got a piece of stainless trim from the inside door panel of my '48 Tudor that I accidentally bent. I've been unable to find a replacement, so I thought I'd try a repair. My...

Re: Engine diaper

This thing only has about 2,000 miles on it. I did my best to seal it up as best I could using all of the advice I could glean from various experts. I'm guessing it's that knife edge on the pan that...

Re: Engine diaper

I did steal your idea. I'm sure mine is nowhere as nice as yours though.

Thanks.

Re: Engine diaper

Thank you! Once I was able to drive it, I kind of put off doing all the little stuff I still had on the list, I was having too much fun hitting every show I could get to. As you may have seen on my...

Re: Engine diaper

[QUOTE=V8COOPMAN;1867282]OK, I'll buy that! But...is that a T5 transmission, or maybe even a Muncie 4-speed that I see in this picture? If so, please give us a little more info on it. That would...

Re: Engine diaper

Don't see how it could possibly get sucked into the (electric) fan and/or belts, wind at highway speed is its perceived enemy, if there is one. Yes, it's got a T-5. Full build thread on the HAMB...

Re: Engine diaper

Just did it today, but my intention is to try leaving it on there even when I drive it. It's stuck to the pan pretty tightly, so hopefully it won't become dislodged while being driven. My only...

Engine diaper

Saw an article in The V8 Times about someone who was making engine diapers, so I thought I'd give it a try. I cut out a square from an old double layer tarp big enough to hold a couple of layers of...

Re: Oil return line plugged?

On mine I really have to crank down the lid bolt to keep it from leaking, and I ended up putting two new gaskets on it, instead of one. There is a lot of pressure in there, even with the restriction.

Re: 48 Door Handle Sag

I know this is an old thread, but I thought I'd add additional details after doing this over the weekend.

The spring in the remote inside door handle proved to be the biggest challenge to replace....

Re: Fuel filter placement

Here are pictures of how I configured the electric pump/filters on my '48. I still need to add a shutoff valve before the filter/pump. Used Earl's Vapor Guard hose and clamps for the soft lines.

'47-'48 long door car trim

Looking for interior door trim to replace my kinked piece. Mine is a '48 Tudor Sedan, but I'm betting trim from a sedan coupe would also work. Roughly 41-1/2" long.

Shocking horn!

Blew the horn on my 48 sedan yesterday and got a shock. Don't remember that happening before. Insulator is new. Hadn't noticed that before, but haven't had the need to blown the horn much either...

Re: The Unofficial Vender List

Good stuff. I'd suggest putting Van Pelt in the Misc Parts NOS section as well since they have much more than transmission parts. For example, I scored a NOS pulley from them.

Also, like Mart...

Re: Dual exhaust system 1948 ford with headers

I went with Red's headers on my '48 and used their head pipes after striking out with Fentons. The drivers side pipe didn't quite clear the hole in the X frame, but nothing a little work with a die...

Re: Wiring an electric fuel pump

Some say it's best to wire in an oil pressure sensor switch that automatically shuts off power to the fuel pump if the engine oil pressure dies, like in the event of an accident. Here's what I used:...

Re: Tudor rear quarter window-How's that work?

Thanks for the advice. I didn't need to be too "bold", it moved fairly easily both ways after being un-stuck, but it certainly feels like it could use some lubrication at a minimum. I do have...

So, I've got to turn the handle in the opposite direction to get them to roll down?
