1954 Manley Tow Boom and Rig.

Nice condition vintage tow outfit from a 1954 Ford Truck. Fits into the bed of a truck and no PTO needed. The boom has a hand crank and electric motor. Period correct for any 40s or 50s truck.

Re: 239 Y-Block Trouble F250

I did put a new coil on, it did not fix the issue. I also put a new carb on, it runs a lot better but same issue.

Great video on vapor lock- I did not know the gas could boil so low. Any tips to...

Re: 239 Y-Block Trouble F250

Any thoughts on the 1/4 inch thick gasket between my carb and intake? Is this necessary or can I use the standard gasket that came with a rebuild kit?

I’m having a very simillar issue right now, I put a fuel pressure gauge on my fuel line and found the stock pump produced 5 PSI which is too much. I put a regulator on it which helped but did not...

Re: What are symptoms of bad power valve on carb?

I know this is a old post but just curious, the power valve is open when the car is off so how would it leak on the bench?

I just pulled a 94 off my truck and when I tilted it about 45 degrees...

Re: 239 Y-Block Trouble F250

The manifolds did not seem to be excessively hot, I was just trying to make the point that the engine was at operating temperature and the fuel lines did not seem to be holding much heat.

Iíll...

I didn’t get to read the last two post before I started working on the truck this evening but I think I was heading in the same direction.

Again, the truck fired cold on the first turn and yes it...

Re: 239 Y-Block Trouble F250

Re: 239 Y-Block Trouble F250

I went to my local starter and alternator shop and was able to get a new starter. The starter does seem to have a little more speed than the old starter. But i'm still having the same issue.

Re: 239 Y-Block Trouble F250

This is a good thought, I thought of a starter as more binary.

Does anyone have a reference for a good part number for a 1954 Ford F-250 starter for a 239 OHV with a manual trans? I’m having...

Re: 239 Y-Block Trouble F250

This is a good idea, my charger tells me the Ďpercent chargedí but it might not catch a bad cell.

After fully charging the battery, I can get it to start with some cranking but I still have a...

Re: 239 Y-Block Trouble F250

Sorry - Maybe I used poor terms. On Thursday I charged the battery, it cranked fine but would not fire and had gas weeping down the side of the carb.

Today I have the battery up to 99% after...

Re: 239 Y-Block Trouble F250

Re: 239 Y-Block Trouble F250

Thank you, but I don't think it would run once it starts if the coil was bad. Also, I feel like bad coils are wives tales.
