Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

W O W..... 32 posts, just to bleed f-n brakes? I just finished brakes on a 52 Willys, starting with a completely 'open', 'empty' system. Took about two of those small cans. Never knew I had to know...

Re: Car at auction

Thanks for the post. I knew where the truck went, I just didn't know that you were 'one-in-the-same'. Last time I saw your truck, it was still under the roof next to the garage. My recollection is,...

Re: Car at auction

I can guarantee you, I'm only a bystander. If I were a 'candidate', it would already be in my garage. Thanks for your comment.
I've driven this car a few times, and can attest that I believe it's a...

Re: Car at auction

Just so y'all will know... That is the last car that RAK (Richard A Krist) restored, before his passing. RAK had a restoration shop in Orange County, and has done several award-winning cars. He was...

Re: Banjo pinion removal tool

Yes... For my 34, this is the way I did it. If I can find the old picture, will edit/add to this post.

Re: Battery Tenders

I'd be interested in hearing a little more. I have a CTEK, and I'm not yet a fan of it. It does things that I don't yet understand... Like flashing green or red lights. The manual that came with mine...

Re: Center piece of windshield molding for converts and wagons

I also made the one for my 47 vert. Looked just like the one in Gary's picture. 'Course, shortly after, a previous owner contacted me, and sent me the original one for my car. You all know how that...

Re: wiring needed for a quick start 51 Flat in a 39 pickup

Regarding 'simplest way to wire'... I saw this thing running around a few days ago. It stopped at a parts store that I was at. It has a Ford radiator shell, so I'm sure it's ok to show it here. Talk...

Re: 1940 Front Wheel Cylinders

Yes, and for good reason. Assembly lube does NOT attract moisture. Never-ever-ever assemble with the pistons wet with brake fluid. That's what causes them to gum up, stick, and eventually rust. JMHO

Re: Removing transmission 1947 Mercury

Re: 1947 convertible radio antenna

For whatever it's worth... Regarding MY 47 convertible.... It's a 'through the center of the windshield' antenna, with the inside knob to rotate it up or down. When I got my car, it came with...

Re: Mercury Flathead on Craigs list MN

Makes me wonder... I also note that the flywheel and clutch are NOT the Merc version that I am familiar with.

Re: D44 R&P pattern

Back in the days when I was building 44's for Jeeps, I made my own tools to set pinion depth. Not hard to do. And, BTW, setting pinion depth is not 'fool-proof'. The pattern rules, and sometimes a...

Re: '32 woodie - holes in cowl

Re: front axle for 1934 Ford

Chiming in with Newc... Be careful with the terminology... 4-in drop does not usually mean 4-in from stock. It means 4-in total, or, around 2-in from stock. In any event, please check it out. I think...

Re: Oversized Brake Drums

This is really good info that I really appreciate. I've just chatted with Don, the owner, and now I'm on the hunt for 35 drums with less regard for their size. Thank you.

Re: sealed bearing fan hub

DD... I'm a little surprised at the fan shown in your pict... I've never found those fans to move enough air. I've thrown away a few of those.

Re: 255 merc excessive ring end-gap?

We're screwing around with old Fords. Me thinks there is too much worrying going on. Are we assembling 'precision' engines, or just old Fords?
