Re: Pulling engine

Pulling it as separate parts isn't an issue. Getting everything aligned when reinstalling will be the challenge. Remove however it seems to work best for you. Wait for warmer weather to put...

Re: 49 Mercury hood binding problems

Careful with the Hammer technique. The suggestion by 51 Merc was for alignment issues with the front. You have issues with the sides. Continue to work the bracket before bringing out the BFH.

Re: 1947 clock not working

Originally, the clock was on the same circuit as the pillar courtesy lights. This circuit was alays hot. The 'fork' might just be the break in the wire run for those lights.

Re: Help Identify Trim... 1946 coupe?

Certainly '46 trim. Could also be from a Tudor.

Re: 1951 Ford F-100 pickup truck

The 226 I6 and (presuming to be ) light duty 3 speed tranny would be correct for a 51.

The unknown to me are the mods made to accommodate the 302. A couple of considerations:

Original radiator?...

Re: Deluxe heater for 1948 f1

This is the setup for the 48-50 F1 fresh air unit. Blower motor mounted outside the cab (not a great design).

Re: Deluxe heater for 1948 f1

Check with a fellow on FTE (ford-trucks.com) 48-56 forum who goes by firstfider. Denny has been hunting and restoring F1 series heaters for some time. He just completed a raid of old bone yards and...

Re: Arm rest interior help

Similar to the Tudor, there is a decorative panel that covers the space. It would match the door panels. Not sure if the arm rest attaches to the panel or a slot on the side wall.

Re: Happy Thanksgiving to all!

I am reminded that Thanksgiving is both a day and an act. Have an act filled day, every day.

Re: 1947 convertible

So is there an in-line fuel filter? If there is crud in the bowl, there is now crud in the carb.

Re: 1951-1952 f1 hood

The latch mechanism is different between the 48-50 and 51/52 models. Was that your question?

Re: 52 v8 flathead heater

The heater core is as complicated as a radiator - mainly because it is one. The valve, once open, doesn't have any further affect on the flow. Heater cores can get plugged over time. I would remove...

Re: 1947 convertible

Did the firewall part look like this? There should be both an ignition resistor (smaller piece to the left) and the breakers in the box cover to the right.

Cabs (including doors) and grilles are also the same. Fenders are shared by F2-6.

Re: 1947 convertible

After installing the new condenser, if the 'no start' condition persists, I would check fuel flow. The new tank was a good move but the crud in the old lines may be haunting you.

Re: Brakes

Leaking wheel cylinders is certainly part of your problem. Get those replaced as a first step. Getting to a firm pedal requires a sound fluid system.

Re: Make it Stop! ('46 Deluxe)

The fellow who sold me the cylinders was reputable and I didn't disassemble them before installation. That's part of my trusting nature, I suppose. Bear in mind, the brakes do work well - but only...
