Default Re: Vapor lock

I remember about 75 years ago waiting in line for a ferry boat
to cross the Delaware river near Chester, Pa. the engine stalling.
I believe they changed the coil and it started. Back then every
one carried a spare coil and fuel pump. I found old Fords sitting
in fields that were so rusty the hood and grill was completely gone
from rust. The chrome hood stainless and the grill stainless bars
were laying on the ground and looked like new. Several of the rear
of the bodies were so rusted the bottom of the trunk and floor was
missing and sitting on the gas tanks was a coil and fuel pump. I
don't know if the gas 75 years ago vapor locked?? G.M.
