Re: Vinyl top

I sure hope you're talking about a "Crestliner".

Re: Need advice on my 37 rims & tires

About the only car I have that doesn't have at least one slow leak is my '51 with stock wheels and tubeless Coker Classics. Make that two; I spent about three weeks last summer chasing down the last...

Re: Original Coil Dependability

With all due respect, there is more behind this than you gentlemen seem to know. You probably view me as one of the "offenders", but believe me, if you knew the details, you would see it is actually...

Another good reason to fill your tank before storing the car.

Re: Oil to use?

I'm sorry, but I have to disagree with this as a blanket statement. Perhaps, in some cases (such as an old, tired, sludged up engine), this may be true, but for just about every other situation, a...

Re: 50 Shoebox lower A arm outer seals

WOW! A "shoebox" coupe; the "deuce" of the 21st century. You haven't listed where you are, but that looks pretty rust-free. 6 or V8?

Don't let it get away from you.

Re: reliable fuel gauge? anyone?

Let me get this straight; Speedway's web site is now an authority on original Ford parts? My mind is boggled.

Re: BeeHive oil filter, Original

Hmmmm. 51006 is the Wix part number for an 8BA filter. A coincidence? I think not. It sure looks the same.

Re: Early Ford Coronavirus masks, we are still car people!

"Bullies"? What the hell are you talking about?

I see absolutely nothing wrong in this thread.

Re: Another clutch chatter thread

To be clear : the pressure plate came from "Fort Wayne Clutch" and didn't have the adjustment bolts. Most of them don't; that's an earlier feature; we're talking 8BA's here.

Re: Sun Visor Repair

Maybe they drilled holes in the metal to put the staples through? When I replaced the A-arm shields on my Corvette, that was the recommended method.

Re: Another clutch chatter thread

Did you check out the thread I referenced in post #17? To summarize it, the "fingers" differed in height from the flywheel surface by .050" with no adjustments. I was able to bring them within .007"....

Re: Staying Home is for the Birds

And, I will repeat, DO NOT let the transport company "off the hook". It could cost you a LOT of money. There are some very good reasons they were right to be concerned.

Re: Lockdown Lowdown 2: Lets tinker with the 41 pickup.

If you're going to do this, put a rag or towel down on the front floor with as much under the wiper motor as possible. That excess lubricant has to go somewhere. Ask me how I know.

Re: Mark Kirby ?

It seems I have waited longer for that aluminum flathead than I have for a kind word from my first wife. (I divorced her in 1972).:D

Re: reliable fuel gauge? anyone?

Exactly! Just another advantage of the "King-Seeley" system.
