Default Re: Vapor lock

The first five cars I owned when I was a teen were all Chevy's, 1938 through '46, never had a vapor lock. I bought my first Ford in '51, a '41 Ford 2dr. When the heat of summer came upon us, I found out what vapor lock was. When I bought my '36 coupe in Sept 52 did not have any vapor lock problems until the summer of '54 when I moved to Vegas. I put an aux electric pump on the '36 and ended the vapor lock problems that the Nevada desert heat brought on.
I have been a faithful believer in aux electric fuel pumps since '54 on most of my old vehicles, cars, trucks and boats.
Bill.... 36 5 win cpe
