Re: Warning about c&g

I beg to differ. It is not gone, but is certainly harder to find.

Need to replace Plug Wires

Just doing a little preventative maintenance on my 59ab. Current plug wires are vintage Sears 7mm from 1966 (not kidding at all). Car is a driver, so just looking for reliability.

Re: A good start today.........

Jim, I have long enjoyed reading your posts and am glad to hear you are doing better. I am quite fortunate to get to work from time to time with my father and my son on my '34. No grandkids yet...

Re: Underhood carnage on my F-1

Happened to me a few years ago as well. Had to have radiator re-cored and dent repair/repaint ride side hood. Good news is that the car runs much cooler now. While I had it all apart, I sent the...

Re: Heat Frustration??

I live outside of Dallas. We are having for us a very cool summer - meaning no 100 degree days so far.

I was on a conference call last week with a bunch of folks I work with in the Big Apple. ...

Re: 34 Tudor roof information

I'm pretty sure I have some pictures of those brackets from when I replaced the headliner on my 34 Tudor a few years ago. I'll try to find them on my work computer tomorrow and post them.

Re: Hard starting 34

If you end up taking it out to check the bendix, remember to only loosen the bolts until the threads are out of their tapped holes. It is easier to keep the starter together this way and easier to...

Re: Hard starting 34

I would double check that the wires are clean and firmly attached - both ground and hot. Also, I had mine do this one time on my '34. The bendix was bad. Simple replacement.

BTW - that's one...

Re: Another reason the hobby is dying out

To me, actual shipping costs include shipping materials, labor, etc. Including those in a shipping fee seems totally fair to me. What I think is misleading is to upcharge on total shipping costs as...

No picture for me either. I believe the HTML code needs a [ at the start and an ] at the end.

Re: Another reason the hobby is dying out

I believe that shipping should not be a profit source for folks. I have sold lots of things on ebay and only charge actual shipping costs. Last week I shipped a 44 pound box UPS ground from Dallas...

Re: 1934 Dearborn Blue paint formula

Re: 1931 Ford totaled by distracted driver

Very sad, but glad driver was apprehended and confessed. Even happier no one was hurt. I'd break out the wrenches and get back to work.

Re: 1934 roof insert trim
