Re: Mart's Crusty Flatty. Teardown begins: Valve removal!

You needed one of these to go with your guide puller. Iíve done it the hard way before as well, but with this tool it makes it really easy.

Re: Is this Washington Blue?

Now that is what Iíve always thought of as Washington blue. My 35 has spots on the cowl of original paint that are about that color. In low light it almost looks black.

Re: Number of surviving 36 Fords with folding tops

This car popped up here in Fairbanks a couple years ago. Was bought and taken to anchorage. IMG_6987

Re: Attaching pics

Exactly! Same thing with my phone Charlie. A pic of my car in the garage loads all day, but take it outside on a bright day and no joy.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Mike,
On the frame, what do you do to ensure the doubled up area in the rear mostly, is clean? I find it very hard to clean, and even harder to paint properly. Is separating them an option?

Thank...

Re: Painting Over Water !!!!!!!!!!!

If you ever want to test the moisture theory take a propane torch and heat a cool piece of metal. Water droplets will form.

Re: Ebay sales tax in place

So is this a federal tax or state tax? And if state, what happens if your state has no tax, such as mine?

Re: Flathead Valve Adjusting Methods ??'s

Me too, always Measure piston’s before you cut the bore.

Re: Engine I. D.

Look on the left rear of the block, on the intake surface, there may be a date code stamped in it. Not all of them have it but that’s going to be the only way to get it close.
Go to Van Pelt’s...

Re: Flathead Valve Adjusting Methods ??'s

I posted a link above that I think is the same one your talking about. Using stock lifters though. I might try that on my next build if I can come up with a valve grinder.

I used an epoxy prime, very tough, and covered with acrylic black gloss, very tough and looks great.

Re: Matt (irontrap) did GOOD

Wow! The only way that could have been better is if you rolled a bone stock 32 three window out of the ground floor!
