Re: Installing Rear Hub On A '40

Just as a point of info.
If you don't have that little fibre seal,

Re: Electric fans

Looks to me like that 3 hole shroud is blocking a lot of...

Re: What Is This Bolt For?

Jim makes a good observation. Maybe a structural bolt for scaffolding?

Re: My junkyard find

Put them up for sale. Someone probably could use them.
Pain in the back to move around and store.

Otherwise......bird feeder bases or bird bath bases.

Re: Problems starting when hot

Any loose wires or bad grounds?
Did you "pop the clutch" to get it started again while being pushed?

Re: Mitchell overdrive in '36 pickup

1936 Ford Pick Up; You did a great job. That Mitchell looks great. Really like your "push pull" handle.
Can you post photos of where the OD cables run from the unit itself right up along the path...

Re: Can this be saved?

The lye solution will destroy your front and rear main seal retainers, I believe.

Re: flathead head engine leak Help

Re: Drakes Locking Gas Cap

Before you do that try adding a thicker gasket to seal better. You can make one.
