Re: Gas Smell Inside

When I got my car, it had a seep around the sending unit access hole. Mostly leaked only upon gas fill up. Hope this helps.

Re: M m oil

Thats a good price compared to here at $8.00 a quart but I think all our petroleum products are more here than the east side of the country esp gas.

Re: antifreeze?

Here it is $10.89 a gallon concentrated so 50-50 mix makes it $5.45 a gallon usable.

Re: weird hesitation

Just a guess here..........my 302 had similar symptoms and it turned out to be the coil. Hope this helps.

Re: 6 volt to 12 Volt conversion

My car is 12v. The heater motor is 6v and has worked fine now for 4 yrs. The wires and motor itself does not get hotter than normal. Might give it a try before you change it out.

Re: 50 Ford Fresh Air Vents

I know what you mean. When I got my '50 the heater control valve was in the wrong hose so hot coolant was always in the heater core. Sheesh!!

Re: not a Ford flathead but from that era

Re: vibration in my car

Could also be a cord separation or bulge in the tire tread or sidewall.

Re: Grill screen air flow

Have boated the Columbia many times. Your 2nd photo looks like the area where the movie "Maverick" was filmed for the river scenes. Glad to hear from you again!!
