Re: Wiring Dash and instrument cluster 1940

I agree with others. Remove the dash and do the pre-wiring first. Then remove the front seat so you can lay on your back and complete the final connections. I have done all the connections with the...

Round Back Spindles

Pair of round back spindles. Bead blasted and look good. There is a spot on both spindles where someone has ground a flat spot, shown in photos. Otherwise these are great spindles. I was going to use...

Re: Mig wire type

75/25 gas is a must. The small MIG welders that don't require shielding gas, aren't worth buying.

Re: Driver Licneses In a Model A Lately

Not in Illinois. They want everyone to fail, regardless of age. If I pulled up in a Model A or a V8 Ford, they'd pick the car to death. You'd think with registration cost at $150 each they'd want to...

Re: Stock vs Electric Fuel Pump

Vapor lock, for me, is a problem on hot days when I park and shut off the car. The temps in the engine bay rise and the fuel in the line near the carburetor vapor locks. I even run no ethanol gas,...

Re: Stock vs Electric Fuel Pump

An electric pump mounted in the rear by the fuel tank on cars that are frequently driven help in a vapor lock event. In Southern Illinois where temps are 85 to 95 degrees May through September and...

Re: green engine paint

That is correct. Brush it on with a foam brush and you will get better coverage and it looks like it was sprayed on.

Re: What's Behind Your Flattie?

Yes, I forget that the shoebox Ford's had an overdrive. Maybe I ought to own one so as to get familiar with them? :) I still think unless you are trying to tear something up, he'll be fine.

Re: First (second really) 5 main aluminum block.

That's pretty amazing. I can't imagine the cost it takes to get this endevour started let alone to a final product that is marketable.

Have you considered an aluminum flathead V8 block?

Re: What's Behind Your Flattie?

You won't have any problem with the stock 3 speed transmission behind a warmed up street flathead. Your money will be better spent on a 3.54 gear ratio in the rear end and a 29/15 tooth transmission...

Re: Kenny Waited (62) Years For This Day ...

I went to high school with the reporter that did the story, Gwyn Bevel.

That's pretty wild that you posted the link and someone from my hometown did the story.
