Re: protectant for top

I don't put anything on the top material.
I used tire shine once, never again. Got caught in the rain. And the tire "protectant" bled all over the paint. Was a hell of a mess to clean the paint...

Re: Something wrong

Check your distributer body (cap). They have a tendency to get an internal short. Meaning you could be firing two spark plugs at the same time. I've had this happen a few times. An Ohms tester...

Re: Tight engine

Hodpatf: Congrats on making your first post.
Sounds like your engine is still tight as it has never been broken in. Engines are tight after a rebuild.
You may need to run an extra ground strap...

Re: stuck 30

There is a YouTube video on this subject.
The guy cleverly put oil in cylinders and left a brick weight on the crank handle til it let loose.
CB919ER's suggestion is also very good. Good Luck. ...

Re: heavy steering

CB919ER, I know exactly what you are talking about.
Check the steering box for oil. My 31 did the same while out on a drive one time. The oil had simply dripped out over time. Good Luck. ...

Re: 8 volt battery question

Run an extra ground strap directly to the transmission. This may help. Jeff

Re: Rear brake roller track removal

Hey Fifty, leave the tubes on. The bushings can be pressed in with the everything still together. (Tube and backerplate attached). Jeff

Re: Head nut under the distributor

Russ, very clever, and well done! Around here those original wrenches usually sell for $5 if your lucky enough to sell it. Think I'll grab one of my spares and do the same as you.

Re: Gas Tank

I believe only the 29 Fordors used that tank. Not interchangeable with the 30's.
Good Luck. Jeff

Re: (Not really) a barn find.

Go see the truck, it is hard to put a price on it, without seeing it, or at least pictures.
The truck sitting in the showroom for many years wouldn't have hurt it. More importantly, did the oil and...

Re: Brake Drums

Hey fiftychev, you can use your current hubs for the cast iron drum conversion. You will need to purchase Model A wheel studs. Keep in mind, they need to be swedged on with a minimum 20 ton press. ...
