Re: using a 12 volt system with the 6 volt horn

It sounds like the problem is the ground circuit from the horn button. Try a jumper direct from a good ground to the horn.

Re: Oil leaks from around oil pan

The tool mentioned in post #13 is a good thing to use.

Re: Manifold Gland Rings

If you're going to put them in, check the width of the rings and the depth of the openings, to be sure that when they're in the gasket will be compressed to make a good seal.

Re: Oil leaks from around oil pan

You could try tightening up the bolts that hold the pan on, might help, might not, it's worth a try. Don't over tighten them.

Methinks it may be a typo, maybe "turbo drawl"?

Re: tell a Model A related story

I worked in a lot of diesel power plants, some of them used 6-71s that ran at 1200 RPM, they were fairly quiet, some of the power plants used 6-71s that ran at 1800 RPM and they were real screamers....

Re: Decided to pull the motor/trans

That's what I was thinking about as the water jacket on these engines doesn't go all the way down on the cylinder, just the top part is liquid cooled.

Re: Decided to pull the motor/trans

Model T's do that, the top ring comes right to the top of the cylinder w/the piston sticking up above the block. Maybe the pistons you removed are like that?

Re: 6v driving lights

Back in 1967 one of my brothers bought a new Ford. It had the 4 headlight system (Remember them?). He replaced the high beam units with spotlight units, Boy, did that light up the road ahead.
