Re: So long

Paul....you will be back. Once you have been bitten it will be an itch you will need to scratch. Start saving for another A. But have fun with your 40, I would love one too.

Re: Persistent intake manifold leak

My thoughts are either hairline cracks somewhere that open up or the GAV needs to be opened up when you come to a stop. Ooooh, is the block flat where it bolts up?

Re: Black goop coming from head gasket

I am retorqueing both warm and cold. Since apparently ford says to do it warm I will do it after a run and then when she is stone cold.

Re: Black goop coming from head gasket

Ok after I got home from the shop where I was able to get her alignment done I looked a little closer at the bubbles. They are green and not black-with a copper one thrown in for fun. So that tells...

Re: Black goop coming from head gasket

The bubbles are on both sides of the engine. I am running antifreeze and I hope it isn't leaking out.

Re: HF infrared gun reviews

Thanks folks. I just put a new head gasket on and I don't want to do it again due to overheating. Especially since I cleaned things up.

Re: Roadster to Roadster pickup

There is a coupe/pickup in our club and it was done very nicely I think back in the 40's. If the body is still good and just lid is removed then I say go for it. Grab a T box and weld and fill.

Re: 1930 Body Production

If I remember right, Murray got the bulk of the orders for the fordoors. Briggs was making other bodies as well as the fordoors. So Briggs bodied fordoors are relatively rare compared to Murrays....

Re: Help Identify 31 Slant Window Fordor

Re: Sedan Top Trim

Dad painted his black when he restored the car. And that is all I have seen on other cars. Although, I have not looked up the judging standards for an answer.

Re: tire pressure

I use about 40. That way it takes a loooong time to leak down:). That and the tubes don't shift at all. That is my story and I am sticking to it.

Re: Otwell Health Heater Exhaust manifold

Ribbon,


The Ottwell will work just fine depending on where you are. As a matter of fact it will probably roast you out of the car if your car is insulated. As far as posting pics this is what I...

Re: Drivetrain Locked Up

Sounds like you either broke something in the tranny or rear end that jammed the gears.
