Re: 1933 Ford Police Car - Argentina

Did McGruder capture a '33 parked anywhere near the Grassy Noll?

I hadn't looked for that on his film........... but, maybe we missed it ;)

Re: 80 over rebuild

Sonic testing is the best way to proceed.

FYI, regarding racing applications, John or Geoff Mummert and Joe Crain, don't recommend boring a 312 block, more than .040. It's been said that the...

Re: Need a 4 speed synchronized truck tranny

I have a F3 that was a 6 and has 4.86's. My cure was putting a AOD trans in it. I also put a 302 in it.

A lot more work, I know but, it makes the rear gear ratio 3.32.

Re: Rebuilding an Ardun OHV 1954 - 1956

I did a quick inflation check. The $400 would be $3910 today.

Not bad, at all for the work requested.

I love reading this communication for that period!

WOW, that's quite a letter. Was there a response?

I think he should have considered the re-paint, in lemon yellow :)

Re: '56/'57 Lincoln Continental Mk II

The last date, in Zapato's add was 11/16. Someone said that he has passed so, this guy may have bought it from his estate?

I'm guessing that he is trying to double his money and may take a bit...

I would like people, that are interested in these cars, to know that one is available, the only one one I've seen in decades, in my area.

I have no connection to it and haven't even contacted the...

Re: Ignition Problem or Carb Problem

What ohm rating is your coil and do you have a resister in the circuit?

I've found that running a 1.5 ohm coil, with direct 12V, will cause a similar problem.

Unless it's puffing out black...

Re: Is there any concern using modern day oil say 10W30 in a 1951 ford 6 cylinder eng

The above quotes, are just wrong. I must ask if either were mechanics in the late 50's or 60's, when the change was being made from non detergent to detergent oils?

I was there, I saw it and had...

Re: Is there any concern using modern day oil say 10W30 in a 1951 ford 6 cylinder eng

The only concern will be slug.

Even if the oil was changed regularly, with non detergent oil, slug will be present.

Detergent oil, will loosen the slug and potentially clog the oil pick up...

Re: Dual chamber master cylinder for drum brakes

Regarding the PB MC, the main difference, is in the diameter of the piston. On most Ford's, up until at least '70, the non PB unit, had a 1" piston, the PB, had 7/8".

The smaller piston, will give...

Yes, but, smokers would have been upset (I used to be one of them), you gotta have that "Wind Wing" to flick your ashes, out of the car :)

Re: '56/'57 Lincoln Continental Mk II

After seeing the original price of this car, in '56, I looked up the inflation rate today.



That makes the first year price, in today's money, $95,873. That puts in in the Mercedes "S" class...

I found this info on them.

The '56 was almost $10k and 2556 were made. They dropped the price to $8,800, for '57 but,...

Re: '56/'57 Lincoln Continental Mk II

They had a engine, that I always admired, the 368 Lincoln Y block, Fomoco's first OHV V8. 4 x 3.66 B&S (in '52 317 ci, 3.8x3.5), with a deck height of 10.94. More than 3/4" taller than the FE engine.

'56/'57 Lincoln Continental Mk II

One of my favorite cars, of all time. I never owned one but, when I was a mechanic (62-70) I got to work on and drive one.

The first 15 minutes of the video, are about how the car came to be.

Re: .Is this old "Y"block a 54 or 55 ? or what?

FYI, the easiest way to tell a original '54 engine, from any other year, is the spark plugs.

Only '54 Yblocks, had 14mm plugs. I've know this, since 1957, when my dad replaced the engine in our...

Re: WHO Is the Oldest Early V8 Forum Member?

Now I feel left out. I posted my age (76) on the 2nd page, I think but, not my first car.

It was my best friends car, I got it in '59 at 15, when he got a 50 Ford.

It was a '48 Merc, coupe....

Re: WHO Is the Oldest Early V8 Forum Member?

Boy, this is a fast thread!! 42 posts in 12 hours and I'm late to it.

I like this forum, because I love old Fords but, it also one of the few places makes me feel young at 76.
