Re: do we have a favorite glue for 34 cowl vent gasket?

That's why Chevys are Chevys. We're taking Fords here and the gasket goes in from the top.

Re: do we have a favorite glue for 34 cowl vent gasket?

I like 3M Black weatherstrip adhesive. If you use the yellow, it may ooze out and be seen and who wants to see yellow. If black toozes out, it will match the weather strip and not be noticeable.

Re: oil getting black

I once had some one tell me the engine was rebuilt because the starter and gen had new brushes and carb was rebuilt? Rebuilt to him may be some thing different to you.

Re: Broken Tap Solution

I would try to use needle nose pliers. Insert the ends into the flutes of the tap and turn in both directions to loosen stuck tap and unscrew. Tap has to be sufficient size for pliers to fit.

Re: How much brake line does it take to do an old Ford?

Lines rust from the inside out. Copper plate is just for looks and feel good. Get the copper steel alloy tubing to be rust safe.
