Re: Engine Noise

Easy things first, as EJ suggested I would check the exhaust/intake bolts for proper torque. I believe they are 30ft pounds... A leak in the gasket seal here can really expose some "clatter"... Chap

Re: update on getting dizzy after being under the A.

Re: Dual 94's?

Jack. I never really checked for accurate gas mileage. Head in the sand approach. Guess I was at about 15mpg overall. I also had a Howard 3/4 cam and Heddon dual turbo mufflers. Wasn't fast, but...

Re: Dual 94's?

I ran dual 94's on a Offy manifold on my 52 F1. I also ran Bubba's converted distributor. Loved the set up for its looks but don't think performance was measurable. Chap

Re: piston hit the head

Foil check the clearances.
With the head removed take small balls of aluminum foil (or modeling clay) and place them in several places on top of each cylinder. I dip the foil balls in wheel...

Re: Model A prices...going which way?

You can find them in all price ranges. Just depends on how much work and $ you want to put into them.
They all come with a "mystery" and will cost you more than you originally expected. My wife once...

Re: 1952 customline gas gauge reads near full

Chased this rabbit on my 52 F1 and finally got it "close" by adjusting the float arm. To show how confident I was with the repair... Whenever it got down to a 1/4 tank reading I always stopped to...

Re: another project? our gas level gauge inop

Replace that float with a neoprene one. The cork will fall apart.
You can take a bent coat hanger and reach down into the tank and hook the float arm. Pull it up gently and bend the wire to keep it...

Re: non restrictive aircleaner

Tubman,
The foam that came with the scoops didn't look like anything "special". It was quite porous and did not seem to restrict flow. I no longer have the truck so I can't take any more pictures....

Re: Dipstick level

How nasty did the oil look when you drained it? Was it flowing or like syrup? If it was extremely "nasty" looking and smelling I would look at dropping the pan.

Re: non restrictive aircleaner

Re: Oil gusher again

This was my first thought also. When I change oil I add 4 quarts of oil and a bottle of STP oil treatment (Blue bottle, 15 oz.) That seems to be perfect on the dip stick. It sometimes drips for a few...
