Re: Installation of parking brake coil spring ?

I tie a string on it with a loop for my finger and use that to pull it back far enough to slide it on the lever. Use a screwdriver to push it over the lever.

Re: Manifold Gasket Replacement - New Video by Paul Shinn

Me too, I prefer about 35#, It might save a manifold and is plenty to hold that piece of metal on.

Re: Tight windows

A little silicone spray might help without making a mess. I had to shave a window once to make it work easily. A glass shop can sand an edge and it shouldn't cost much. The shop I Used didn't even...

Re: Renumbering question

Engines were re-stamped routinely after rebuilds back in the day.

Re: 1930 Coupe front end shimmy

Toe in, balance, and a good 10 leaf spring will help a lot to stop that shimmy. Make everything correct and it won't cause trouble!

Re: Oversized Brake Drums

Doing shoddy work that can be called out after an accident will also give our hobby a black eye. It might also lead to targeted regulations.

Re: Persistent Leaky Fuel Shutoff Valve

I still like my original type valve I had no fitment problems. I bought it at Ford N More and I don't know if they are still in business. She had one that was guaranteed not to leak and it hasn't in...

Re: 1915 touring car height with top up

What is the height of your garage opening? My T fit in my garage. Buy the car, you can always modify the garage!

Re: Persistent Leaky Fuel Shutoff Valve

They had gas tanks that were clean without rust flaking off the roof and sand blowing in with the dustbowl. Plus the valve cost a hard earned nickel!

Re: Persistent Leaky Fuel Shutoff Valve

The trick is to add the fine screen filter in the top of the valve. it is grit and rust flakes that tends to score the surfaces promoting a leak.

Re: Tie rod end drag link gasket

Re: Stray Bearing Shim

I would test the rods for loose side to side motion, If they are all the same I wouldn't disturb the rod nuts other than to check for 35# torque, unless it is time to check bearing clearances. That...

Re: Question for California Plate Restorers

If you can find dark yellow or safety yellow in a rattle can you should have a very close color. It is the color of the yellow stripe on roads, curbs, and yield signs. I have found it in rattle cans...

Re: Colors of original tool kit

I had a ford bag in the same configuration in a dark carmine red color top type material that my dad had. I don't know if it was original or maybe an accessory.

Re: Head gasket indentations pics

As long as the center material is not missing or ripped it will be OK. The copper will press flat with torque.

Re: OFF SUBJECT Quick Color rattle can paint

I like Krylon rattle cans, it is deep black and dries very fast. I think your choice works well also, I have used it and didn't find any negatives.

Re: Compatibility of brake parts rubber

Did you ever analyze what was causing that failure? I doubt it could have been the brake fluid if all was perfectly clean.
