Re: Dual 94's?

I ran dual 94's for years on a regular dual manifold. I played a lot with power valves and jetting to get it to run good. Eventually I swapped them for Stromberg 97's and right from the start it ran...

Re: idle speed screww

I would take the throttle linkage right off the carb. Then you can tell if it's a carburetor issue or a linkage issue.

Re: Shocking horn!

My '47 does this, I just don't touch anything metal when I toot the horn. If I'm leaning on the garnish molding I'll feel it in my arm.

Re: Brake shoe interchange

That was my thought also, if the bushing with the two flats fits into the earlier shoe it would be fine but I'm not sure if they are the same size. The only parts I have loose are post war style.

Re: Gauge wizards - need some help

The mustang style should pulse about 5v to the gauges. I've used them for decades with good success.

Re: Last years body on this years car

I like that we're debating the originality of a hot rod haha. It looks like a nicely done A roadster on a deuce frame. I don't care what the title says that's what it is. They really wanted it to...

Re: Overdrive solenoid leaking

So I pulled the solenoid out the other night, fluid pours out of the transmission making it difficult to see, but I felt in the transmission with a pic and sure enough I felt a lip. I stuck my seal...

Re: Overdrive solenoid leaking

I just found this, https://www.vintageautogarage.com/Borg-Warner-Overdrive-Solenoid-Shaft-Seal-p/07410s.htm or is this just another version of the same thing?

Re: Overdrive solenoid leaking

I have a National 240698, it looks like the seal that would go in the solenoid. It doesn't fit the transmission that's for sure. Unless my old seal is stuck in there, but it didn't look like it.

Overdrive solenoid leaking

Re: Totaly "Restored" 1st Sport Coupe sold in San Francisco

I agree. Also it still appears to have mechanical brakes. That's the problem with resto/rods. You have this one person's interpretation of what needed to be improved and what didn't, and unless it...

Re: later intake on 59ab

Personally I've heard too many horror stories about improperly set up pcv systems. I'll stick with modern oil and frequent changes.

Re: Mitchell Overdrive

Here's what I had to do with my '47, a small notch on either side of the driveshaft tunnel. I used an old 289 valve cover and welded it in on both side.
