Re: Are these Model T or Model A Subrails?

Those are A rails for a two door. See the seat connections so the seat can be rotated forward to let rear seat passengers in.

where is this 29 roadster pickup?

In 1957 when I was 15 I bought a 29 roadster pickup from "behind the gas station." Instead of hotrodding it I restored it except I painted the frame white and the engine red.

It was complete...

Re: has any one used 650-19 tires from coker?

6:50x19 is what my 1927 Hudson used - 127" wheelbase, a much bigger car.

A handy tip for masking off complex things like distributors or even that oil pipe is to wrap them in aluminum foil. Much easier than tape and very effective.

Re: Frozen motor - melting out pistons

Since you've soaked it take the crankshaft out. Get a piece of wood about the size of the bore and stick it into the cylinder. A big hammer should take care of it, probably without breaking...

Re: Please point me to V8 60 info

There's remarkably little info out there on 60's - apparently Ford didn't even publish a shop manual.

Gears, bellhousings and all are different for 60's and 85's and won't hook up. You'll need...

Re: Engine Removal Photos Please

I had a thread in July 2011 describing how it was done with a plank, scissor jack and a box. It's an easy one-man job.

Re: electric fuel pump

Thanks for the tips. The thread Fordy19 mentioned was the first time this pump gave out. Followed the advice then but got a diaphragm that totally dissolved. Some good info here. Thanks.

Re: Dick Spadaros' Health

Dick was very helpful to me and the V8-60 and went quite a bit out of his way to do it. Very much appreciated.

A very good guy. My best to him.
