Re: 1953 V8 engine color

Mikko, sometimes new guys are afraid to start a new thread and just hook on to an existing one. It was just your turn this time.

Re: Finally time to tinker…plug wires

I just checked your profile. It looks like you have the later style engine ('49 Mercury). As I said above, it sounds like you are missing the wire guides that mount under the intake manifold bolts...

Re: Finally time to tinker…plug wires

It would help if we knew whether you are working an an early (front-mounted distributor) or later (8BA style) with a post mount distributor.

Also it sounds like the vehicle may be missing some...

Re: Insurance

If I can find the time, I'll post a link to the pertinent thread on the H.A.M.B.

It is telling that you say you "have not had any claims yet".

Re: 8BA Oil Pan Cleanout Plate-For trucks only?

You can get a good measurement of the exhaust valve lift, though.:D

Re: Can you guys stand another picture problem?

Unless I misunderstand what you are saying, I suggest you try it again and actually send it. I'll bet it doesn't work.

Re: Insurance

David, I will have to disagree with you on this. We are seeing a lot of "newbies" on the board lately, and I'm sure some of them are unaware of the ins and outs of the "specialty" insurance business....

Re: Old car brake lights: Brighten em up for free! Safety improvement!

I remember reading an article a few years ago that said that painting the insides of the housings white was more effective than silver paint or something like this.

Re: 1953 V8 engine color

I always thought they were "Tangerine" (red/orange), but the Fordomatic may throw a joker in the deal.

Re: H-226 6cyl Leaking Oil

If the 6 is anything like the V8, the rear seal is tough to set up. The Fel-Pro gasket set that I used on my latest engine came with a special razor knife, a cutting guide, and a separate sheet of...

Re: Insurance

I couldn't agree more with the need for specialty insurance. I know some people who were very disappointed despite the promises and absurd claims made by their agents.

Re: Can you guys stand another picture problem?

Re: Insurance

I just changed from Condon-Skelly to Hagerty. Their rate is half of my old one for the same coverage. When I initially saw the rate, I was quite skeptical and did a LOT of checking. It is legit, and...

Re: 1936 Ford Phaeton woods

Re: Can you guys stand another picture problem?

Thanks to all (especially "51-Merc-CT") for the help; I've got it all figured out.

It's the price we pay for choosing to not upgrade forum software.

Re: 49 F1 Clutch problem

Re: Can you guys stand another picture problem?

Thank you "51-Merc-CT". When I did it that way it worked. I went into my album first, "cut" the "IMG" URL, and went to "New Message". I "paste"d the paste buffer into the message and added the text....
