Re: WHO Is the Oldest Early V8 Forum Member?

I'm 73 and have had my grandfather's '34 for over 50 years now.
Lawson Cox is right about life being like a roll of toilet paper. I quote him all the time!

Re: Speedometer cable/speedometer noise

When I had that problem with my '34 10 years ago I undid the cable as you have done and put a few drops of 3 in 1 oil in. It solved my problem.

Re: What kind of jack do you carry

I use a bottle jack that came from an old Ford Econoline van along with a piece of 2x10. I do have the original bumper jack but don't use it.

Re: Am I the only one??

You're not the only one, Marko. I'm in the same boat as you. I've had my grandfather's car for 50 years now and people I've never met on this barn have helped me in so many ways. I'm grateful. Tom

Re: '34 Ford Hood Latch

Thank you Jim. Brute force did it. Actually I pried it down with a screw driver.
It was tough. Thanks again. Tom

Re: '34 Ford Hood Latch

No other suggestions, guys? We've determined that its the newer style. I'd like to be able to open that side of the hood since I have to get to the starter wire.

Re: '34 Ford Hood Latch

Jim, I have the later version, the spring is inside. Should the springs be lubricated, by the way? Do they break and thus make it impossible to move the latch?

The latch on my hood (the one closest to the firewall on the passenger side) is frozen in place and won't move down that 1/2 inch or so. It doesn't move at all. I can't figure out if somehow it...

Re: dumb questions

I'm with Will on this one. Some people just don't know and have enough interest to ask a question. Over the years I've had many people ask very basic questions about my car. Tom

Re: Gas gauge liquid

How difficult is it to add the liquid? Does the whole thing have to be taken apart? I don't suppose there is a youtube video on it. Tom
