Re: Vintage Precision thermostat housing

Just sealant works best and you don't have to worry about breaking an ear off your new thermostat housing.

Re: Tubeless 16" tires

Thanks railcarmover, but California is a too far to have those wheels and tires shipped from. A set of those wheels found me, and local too. Thanks for all the replies..........AL.

Bruce/Guys, thanks for the feedback. I've been toying with the idea for 16" rims with radials, but wanted to be sure I could run them tubeless. Now the search is on for four 16" rims. I did see a...

Would tubeless 16" radial tires work on 1935 Ford rims?

Re: Ammeter

If you're not in a hurry to purchase one, original ammeters come up on ebay every three weeks or so. Check out the judging standards so you'll know what is original and what is not.

Re: Can Anyone Identify the Heater Needed for This Manifold?

That looks like an Autolite heater manifold that someone has modified for easier distributor access.

Re: Best cooling fan for best cooling?

Unless you go with some aftermarket electric or multiblade nylon fan, the aluminum 2 blade replacement fan works best(IMHO). It pulls more air through the radiator than the 4 blade Model A steel fan.

Re: Oil pan baffle

Kurt in NJ: You won't bend the gasket flange if you drop the oil pan on soft ground, not asphalt or cement.

Re: Oil pan baffle

Easiest way I have found to remove the baffle without damaging the oil pan is to drop it from about six or seven feet onto dirt and grass covered ground so it lands flat on the gasket surface. The...

Re: Front and Rear Spring Restoration

If you buy the repo springs you still need to round the lower edges of each leave and do the graphite/paint prep before installation. If your springs need re-arching, and your not interested in fine...

Re: Oil drain sealer

You can use a 1/4 pipe tap and very carefully tap the hole slightly deeper. Just do a 1/4 turn at a time. Tap once, re-try your drain pipe. Not right......tap again and re-try. Keep doing this until...

IMO you can't beat Stewart-Warner gauges. May be more expensive, but they last a lifetime.

Re: Oil drain sealer

That drain pipe has tapered pipe threads and it shouldn't need sealer, particularly because there's no oil pressure on it. If your worried about it coming unscrewed, try some JB Weld on it.
