Re: Radial and Bias Tires.

Radials were an option on my 67 Galaxie. I put radials on my 58 Ford and it was so nice not to be chasing cracks in the road. I didn't think it made it ride rougher. For a rough ride you need nylon...

Re: Help with a family issue

I don't have an answer for your truck, but look under any/many front wheel drive cars. The gas tank is right under the rear seat, one thin piece of sheet metal separate you from the fuel tank. Where...

Re: The forgotten 1960 Fords

Sad, the great planned obsolescence. Even in the ads from the day telling you how impressed everyone would be with your new purchase.

Re: Primer for YOM plates

I probably wouldn't hurt to carry a copy of the state law from wherever your vehicle is registered. We have all met a very, shall we say 'fresh' officer.

Re: tesla Truck

I been telling my wife for years they are just wagons. She hates wagon's except woodies, so if I sneak home a country squire I should be ok.

Re: torquing 8ba heads with an oil filter

Part #: 32-23817-1 at Macs Auto Parts. Is a pic of what I was thinking or something similar. Used them on FE engines to retorque head bolts without removing rocker arm shafts.

Re: torquing 8ba heads with an oil filter

Cannot think of the name for them but there is a box end tool on the order of a crow foot with a tall C shaped body and square drive end on the top of the C. Will reach under rocker arms and shafts....

Re: Front end alignment

You might try to find a shop that just specializes in alignment. The one around here was good enough to go to Indy for the 500. When they did your car it would never be better. Not saying you can't...

Re: Radio Shack Capacitive Discharge Ignition

Ford perma tuned ignition. 427's optional on T birds also on large trucks. I think those distributors had a highly polished point cam and maybe lower tension points since that would be the only wear...

Re: 1955/56 Ford Sedan Rear Window Defrost

Re: Radio Polarity Help Needed

Tried to use early VW 6 volt in a Ford once. Insulated it real good and blew it when antenna cable got plugged in. Forgot antenna cable coax is hooked to the car body on the mast mount.

Re: Who has one of these?

The engineers in that era must have worked long and hard hours. Would have been something to be young then and 10 years under your belt into WWII production, then on and on.
