Re: 1953 ford

Red/Orange or "tangerine" for V8's and green if it was a 215 6-cylinder. There are a number of images on line if you google "1953 Ford engine color". I bought my v* paint from Bill Hirsch

Re: starter click?

I had the same problem... a click and no cranking. Cables and grounds all good, and it was the solenoid. Got a new one from Dennis Carpenter, and it was bad out of the box. Frustrating! Bought one at...

Re: Up to Date Info on a 6 Volt Fuel Pump?

Re: question about '42-'47 sedan deliverys

I think I bought my tailgate weatherstrip from Steele Rubber Products for my ‘53 Ranch Wagon. They had many profiles and sizes to choose from, and the price per foot was cheap enough that I bought...

Re: New guy intro - 1952 Customline

I restored a Ď53 Ranch Wagon a while ago. A great supplier of lots of parts you might need is Concourse Parts. Quality and service were very good.

Good luck. Thatís a neat business coupe

Re: 1951 f3

On my ‘52 F1, I put the inner fenders on first and then put on the fenders and other pieces. It was pretty straightforward that way.

1946 Mercury exhaust system source?

Who has the best exhaust system components for a '46 Mercury? The only place I've found that carries any of the larger pieces is Mac's.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Verify oil pump working

Re: 32 Ford brake cross shaft assembly

It was 35+ years ago, but I used needle bearings. It was an easy to find size as I recall. They worked great.

Re: 28 and 30 rear end differences


The judging stds would indicate a lot of differences that would take a trained eye to know, and I'll defer to the early '28 experts to provide details. I know that radius rods, backing...

Re: lifting off the body (Brent Terry)

I prefer the path of least resistance... remove the two bolts on the steering box and lay it down. Then four guys can easily lift the body onto the frame at a reasonable height without fancy lifting...

Re: Slamming into first gear

As a kid, I was told to put a half pint of STP in the transmission, and I've always done it. I think there are folks who use a LOT of STP.

Re: Fender Identification

I’m guessing they are ‘31 “wide bed” fenders. They are quite rare. Typical ‘30-31 coupe, roadster, narrow bed fenders are 12” wide.

My best guess...
