Re: Muffler review

I have a pair of Walker Continentals on my 48, which I installed around 1978 (but who's counting). They are a little loud now. Not a flathead, tho.

Re: Stoplight Stall

Upon re-starting, does it sound, and act rich? Black smoke? These would be symptoms of flooding due to stopping. Make sure your floats are working under fuel pressure, it could be any of the three.

Re: What were the chances!

Census reports are done every 10 years, and are good records for people living in a specific city or county. They can also provide a few historic details.

Re: Pedal foot pressures

If you are ok to stand from a sitting position, you are lifting almost half of your weight with each leg. Is the doctor ok with you walking?

Re: FORD vs FERRARI

So true Rotorwrench!

Old Bold Pilots makes me think of Chuck Yeager, test pilot, and the "Right Stuff" story. Isn't Yeager still alive?

Re: 52 v8 flathead heater

Defrost damper and fan control should be the only other control mechanisms.

Re: 1947 convertible

Have you pulled the distributor cap and checked the rotor/cap interface, making sure you have a good circuit to the plugs?

Re: Flathead machine shop in Tennessee

Pat Robinson in West Paducah is a great engine machinist. I've seen a few flatheads there over the years, but Pat is in his 80's and has been in bad health lately and may not be accepting work. He...

Re: Carburetor Issues - School me

First, try flipping each of the throttle plates over. One at a time. Sometimes that helps.

Re: Lifting a 8ba engine

Nice charts, Fordy. It's amazing to think how strong steel actually is. A grade 8 5/16" bolt could easily lift a full size car!

Re: Dad's secret (sorta) project coming together

A friend's dad, back in the 50's, had a "Jeep" that he said was a Ford. Actually had a Ford tailgate on it. I always assumed it was legit. Anyone else seen a Ford tailgate on a Jeep?

Re: No reverse BW R-10

Bad solenoid? Have you actually tested it's operation by applying voltage? It has to be working to lock out the OD sungear/clutch.

Re: Let me ask another way

You might try switching the polarity to the rear bulbs. LEDs only work when wired in one polarity direction. That is the nature of a diode.

Re: first drive after a loooooong slumber and shes making a bad noise.

The shuddering sounds like the clutch grabbing from a rusty flywheel, possibly. The grinding could also be rust on the brake drums, which should have quietened after a couple of uses of the brakes.

Re: '36 Radiator - looking for shop suggesting in South-Central PA or source for new

Hey Yoyodyne, Do you happen to know of a garage in or around Lancaster, Pa. that was/is run by Al McMichaels? I knew him and his wife from Ft. Myers Fl, while wintering there.
