Re: Oil return line plugged?

Is this the style canister you have? You might just need a new gasket.
Make sure it is completely seated and doesn't shift during tightening.

Re: So I have a little problem...

This may seem a bit anal and long but, I think it's worth reading.

I may not be fully understanding the problem but, wouldn't it be best to mark the location of the holes with a transfer punch,...

Re: Coolant additives

I use No Rosion plus the anode attached to the cap. I keep wondering if the NoRosion is doing its job why would the anode still dissolve?

Re: 5/16" id or 3/8" id fuel hose?

If you can go with 1/4 inch to keep it all the same.
I am assuming rest of your fuel line from the tank is OEM 1/4 inch.
Use the hose that is intended for today's gas....

Re: HOW TO:REINSTALL POINTS CAM LOBE on 49-53 Ford Distributor

Thanks,. Like I said. Best to avoid removing the cam lobe in the first place.

Re: Need some bolts

Try 1/4-28 UNF. They look like the bolts on a fan hub. I think Ford may have made his own special bolts but, I recall using 1/4-28 bolts.

Re: Whats the secret to removing the oil filter?

That drain plug in the bottom of the filer is a good idea.
Breaks the vacuum/suction effect.
Might give it a try.

Re: Whats the secret to removing the oil filter?

If you pull directly up without twisting it a little oil will go all over the place.

Put a rag over the top of the filter.
