Re: Warning about c&g

I should stay out of this, but the thread title is is kind of an incitement. I've bought parts from C and G four or five times now, and I am 100 percent satisfied in every respect. You just can't...

Re: Polishing a fire extinguisher

My new go-to cleaner is Marvel Mystery Oil. Seriously, it works great. Last thing I shined up with it was a vintage actual MMO metal can I found in the trash.

Re: My Summer Project

I couldn't remember which way it went. I kinda wanted a new tank for my 50, but for your same reasons I spent hours cleaning my old one.

Re: Transmission Leaking

My 50 has the cover just like 38coop's. I'd have assumed all the 49-50 cars did, but learning otherwise.

46 Pickup Holes in Hood Area?

For about 3 months I been figuring it would dawn on me what these factory holes are for. But it hasn't happened yet. The two big holes just to the lower rear of the hinge pieces in my blurry photo....

Re: Is this an ok radiator?

I guess on a $200 radiator my criteria would be, and was; Can I get it hooked up? Will it hold water? and Will it cool?

Re: 8ba mercury flathead

Pull the pan and look at the crank plugs maybe. Or if pan's off I guess you could check stroke. Or check stroke with a head off.

Yeah, Robz: I live in Eureka and my shop is out near the dam. Between those places is only driving I've done with her so far, and I sure don't need the OD there. I do have that real low rear end in...

Re: Flat 221ci - 1935 - Getting stuck after 3 weeks sitting.

Here in Arkansas we would apply a hot 12 volt battery to the starter briefly.

Re: 50 Car Fuel Sender, slightly different question?

I'm wondering if any of the reproductions are useful at all? Like to let you know when you're getting real low?
