Re: Bad Speedometer cable or...

Brush the speedo internals gently, compressed air then and lube sparingly.
I hated that ridiculous loop at the far end of the cable by the trans and I
installed a 90-degree adapter.

Re: Bad Speedometer cable or...

I did them both in my F-1. The cable being lubricated helped
immensely and the speedo being cleaned & lubed fixed it up
to about 100%.
You'll want a light "clock" oil for the speedo. I used a...

Re: 52 f1

There's even a fair percentage of mis-manufactured flex lines where
the ID passage necks down.... those are really a pain to...

like that.

Russell Speed Bleeders...... have them on a couple of cars.
Stay away from the Earl's Solo-Bleeds..... they suck. I've had them fail

Re: Sticking thermostat 52 F1

Total guess but I would say it seems to be about 2-3 gallons.

Re: SBC / 8BA distributors

Don't have the MAX ADVANCE ADJUSTER but have considered "voiding your warranty" and drilling & tapping mine for that added adjust-ability.
I already altered my Crane vacuum advance canister to get...

Re: Upper Steering Column Bearing

Used a Briggs & Stratton 7028722YP in my F-1 column. Made in USA too.
These are also a flanged "wheel" bearing so I removed most of the OD of
the flange with about a minute's worth on the bench...

Re: Voltage to points

An original Ford yellow top coil would be ok. The offshore-manufactured reproduction item is pretty much junk though.....

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

If I were going to do this (OD or T-5) I'd mod the factory cross member by leaving roughly the left "half" of the cross member in place.... because of all the stuff mounted to it that really should

Re: How would you price this F1?

Not into the wheels on that one but the rest of it is really nice.
Paid 21K for my '48 about 5 years ago and it's not quite that clean.

those marks all line up somewhere in the 140-180# range. If all that lined up, you'd definitely know the condition the...
