Re: SBC/8BA distributors

Re: Fuel pump / vaporlock

Just thinking this through, but if the vacuum wipers are in the off position isn't it the same as the hose being plugged? There is no vacuum being circulated.

Re: 1950 Horn Button

Yours is for a Deluxe model. Also, there are no chrome caps on the pointed ends of the dash on a DeLuxe model.

Re: 1950 Horn Button

The Custom Deluxe cars had the chrome horn rim, the Deluxe did not have them.

Re: Copper coat gasket spray.

FYI, I was looking for the exhaust sealant and found the correct name to be Walker acousti/seal. Autozone shows it for about 1/2 of NAPA's price.

Re: generator technical

Good for you for thinking it through. Some of the one-wire alternators have to be revved a little to charge after starting the engine every time, some don't. Don't be alarmed if you have to rev it a...

Re: 59 AB camshaft install Help

Maybe put the oil pump back in to provide a little resistance on the idler gear so it won't turn as easily with the cam shaft as you try to align the gears.

Re: 1952 customline ignition key and lights

The switches don't care if they are switching 12 or 6 volts. Find original switches and replace the aftermarket switches.

Re: Electric fans

Here is an example of flappers to reduce suction loss at low speeds, yet allow air flow through at higher speeds. Sorry for the small size, I lifted it from the 'net.

Re: Electric fans

If you cut a fourth hole, I've seen shrouds with flappers over the vent holes that close when the fans are sucking and open when air passes through at speed.

Re: The T-Bird was in a rain storm yesterday

That's good. Sometimes cameras don't show the true setting.

Re: 6 Volt Flasher

That is the reason it is there, so you will turn it off :)

A cotton ball on the noise outlet wrapped with electrical tape until it is not
as obnoxious will make it more tolerable.

Re: 1951 8BA Cooling Capacity

Maybe it is the radiator differences among different applications. My '38 has a stock type 4 row radiator and I put over 5 gallons in it when installed after the build. I think the upper tank on...
