Re: Vic

Now, Lawson, you know better than that. Nobody loves a political party, they simply choose the least of two evils.

Re: 1936 ford diff gear change

All of this, but with respect, a KRW type hub puller, never a three finger type.

Re: Vibration - rumble

Wheel weights may be of the less reliable variety that use sticky stuff instead of the older metal clips. Tires also may separate internally, causing a bubble or other imbalance. It does seem to me...

Re: 39 rear drain plug

As we get older, we also tend to misunderstand each other more often, but of course I never had that problem myself.

Re: Speedometer weirdness

The speedo itself does require cleaning and lubricating. Your previous off-zero may have been an indication of sticky old lube, which freed itself somewhat with the bouncing from the cable. Just my...

Re: 40 Pickup Set Screw Size for Hinge Pin Mirror

So now, having the answer you sought, you make the investment in time and money to travel to your nearest hardware store to purchase a nice stainless steel 1/4x20 set screw, only to find that for...

Re: Front timing cover rope seal on 59L

It does seem like there would be an undesirable offsetting shear action, but with that said, the required crush to the pan rope is accomplished, so be happy!

Re: classy ford ad 1933

Yes indeed, very classy. This ad demonstrates the feeling among the upper class at that time in history, to appear less conspicuous to those suffering through the great depression. This particular ad...

Re: VANPELT toll free number

I've wondered for a number of years of what practical use is an 800 number in the modern world.
I came to the conclusion that vendors wanted to put their best foot forward in dealing with potential...

Re: Install oil filter

While anything can happen, I'd be willing to bet that you are mistaken in your recollections of what you found a couple years ago. There are two main reasons that an inlet restrictor is needed and...

Re: Flathead PCV ????

As your main objective would be to capture blowby, I think you should rethink the "air intake" you plan to install, to provide filtration, and even some restriction, rather than a free flow intake.

Re: Making your own gaskets

An exacto knife, and a set of wood turning chisels come to mind. Leather punches come in many shapes besides round also.

Re: installing radiator bottom hoses

You probably could use new motor mounts while you're at it, so, floor jack under the pan with a 2x8 on the jack, lift the engine off the mounts enough to change the rubber pads, and install the hoses...

Re: Fan, Radiator, Shroud

To quote Jay, that's the beauty of using a shroud. The fan can be positioned high or low, it will work the same, as the shroud/fan creates a vacuum, pulling air through the entire radiator, not just...

Re: 3 blades verses 6

The 6 blade fans sound like an airplane taking off. They also chew up your horsepower to make that noise. The 180 thermostats are good, and the shroud is by far the best thing you can do.

Re: Obsolete & Classic Auto Parts, Inc Experience

Re: Brake Drums...WHY Did "INNIES" Become "OUTIES"?

Here's my take:
Improved heat dissipation capability, design resistance to heat warpage in service, and manufacturing quality control.

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

Commonly referred to as dog bones. Look in the green bible for lengths of shock links from different years. As to what they are made of, some are cast, some are stamped, I don 't know which about...
