Re: Speedometer 1950 F3

The cable just pulled out of my 49. My speedo did the same thing, some screws fell out. Just cleaned things and put it back together.

Re: Mercury Motor I.D.

The Mercury heads could be put on any 8BA style motor. If the crank is 4 inch stroke and the bearing surfaces are repairable, it's worth $400.

Re: 59A low compression #4 cyl

A sticky valve (taking too long to close) could cause your problem too.

Re: 1949 F1 ride into town to chase some parts

Quite pleasurable to drive now. Running, steering, stopping great. I hope to get new tires and the stock wheels/hubcaps back on this year.

Re: 1949 F1 ride into town to chase some parts

It's obviously not a correct heater but was in it when I bought it, leaked really bad. Looked for a correct one, but anything any good was a fortune. Got to thinking that it's just part of it's...

Re: 1949 F1 ride into town to chase some parts

Lots of agriculture in the area, they are used to tractors down town. I throw a hand signal out now and then (same in my 30 coupe) but not sure anyone knows what they mean anymore. :rolleyes:

Re: 8BA Flathead crankcase breather tube

I wouldn't think copper or aluminum would be good choices, I'd be afraid vibration would grind away on them. If someone has a spare laying around in their horde, I'd be more than happy to pay for...

8BA Flathead crankcase breather tube

Not the draft tube, the little short one under the intake? I'm getting close to assembling a Canadian 8BA and need one. Don't see any of the dealers selling one. Worst case scenario, I'll find some...

Re: sealed bearing fan hub

Very cool! I was hoping folks could use the drawings to make their own. Someone should make this as a kit.

Re: My old red tonner on a music video.

Very nice, nothing beats home-made music and your old truck is fine too. A couple of years ago a professional photographer asked to use my F1 as a backdrop for Christmas pictures. It spent a whole...

Re: Mart's update: 2021 No6. Ol' 59 Flatty Project Pt. 22. Bottom end button up.

Thanks for all the videos Mart, I enjoy all of them. I'm playing "catch-up" about ready to start assembling. I ordered a re-manufactured rod off of ebay to replace the one that has a bit of a loose...

Re: vacuum wipers

First you have to have a good running engine that makes good vacuum, you should have full engine vacuum present at wiper motor. You might want to watch Mart's video.

Re: Evening Drive Video

Thanks Ralph, I wish more on the Barn would post videos. I think my favorite video of Mart's is the hill climb with his A-V8 roadster.
