Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Excellent work and discussion. It's good for all of us to know what it takes. How much of it we choose to apply is up to us, but at least we know what to do.

Thanks Mike (and the other...

Re: Mart's Crusty Flatty Teardown Pt6. Studs!. Get 'em out!

Bob, I didn't soak mine, but I would advise you to go out and apply penetrating oil of your choice every few days until you are ready to do it don't forget the studs are open to the water jacket so...

Re: Engine Made in the Stand

The studs should come out easily as it looks like they've just been started in the holes.

Re: 40-41 Pickup Inner Fender Panels

Do you have the big V shaped support? That is what the whole front clip rides on. The lower edges of the inner fenders only bolt on at one (or is it two) points. Nothing at the forward end, other...

It's a fixer upper for sure. What is nice is the completeness.

Mart's Crusty Flatty Teardown Pt6. Studs!. Get 'em out!

Having successfully got the valves, crank, pistons, cam and lifters out, in this episode I turn my attention to the studs. I show a method that seemed to work well on this motor. This may not work...

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

I suppose the important point is, having a car with a reliable fuel gauge. That's why I put one in my truck recently.

Re: Plugging Away on The 32' Roadster

Nice collection of parts there. I'm a little surprised by the drag link. 32s normally use a one piece part. (With dismantle-able ends). having an adjuster is ok, but two?

Re: 1932 Pickup

I don't recognise that as a 32 pickup part.

Re: What is the gross vehicle weight of 1941 Ford pickup

The 4300 lb weight quoted above seems right to me.
I had my truck weighed and it came in at 2650 lbs.
Half a ton is 1120 lbs.*
So that leaves 530 lbs for driver, passenger and some fuel, tools...

Re: 35-40 Frane Question

It's lower by the offset of those braces. I'll try and get a measurement off my 41 pu.

Re: Last years body on this years car

I have a 30A on 32 rails. If it helps at all it is registered here in the UK as a 32. Here more emphasis is put on the chassis than the body.

There must be people in your state that also have a...

You know when you read a thread and you realise that's just out of my league? I'm just glad to get one running at all.

Re: 1939 pickup 1/2 ton engine noise

I'd be looking at all the plug wires. You might have two crossed. It isn't running well. Also look at the rotor arm and distributor side plates.

there can be a problem when the rotor fails and the...

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

Ok, thanks, gotcha.

Ok this is my non US perspective. Here we don't tend to have pickups as second vehicles and petrol cans have always been about. I've never heard any mention of it being a bad...

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

There seems to be a big built in resistance to carrying fuel in a gas can. Ok, I'll try and understand, but tell me how is someone supposed to fetch fuel for their lawn mower, snowblower or (as in...

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

I carry gas in the trunk often. It's always in a specifically designed container for that purpose though.

If you really thought about it you'd never drive a Model A or a 32/33/34. The gas tank is...

That was interesting. I wouldn't have bothered with the "power slot" either, but the setup on that machine seemed very good to me. I suppose if sleeving it's a dead cert so one side would be fully...
