Body / Frame welting...

It's probably been discussed here many times but, what's the deal with welting between the body and frame on a '32 Tudor? Does the welting go under the firewall? Gas tank?

Thanks!

Re: Winter without a project?

Maybe it had a South Wind heater?

Re: Best quality rattle can paint

I posted about this a couple of years ago. I had been using Rustoleum with the same nozzle problems. It seems that they "improved" the product my making it so it would paint "in any position." They...

Re: Winter without a project?

Thanks! I was thinking it was a Ford based on shape of window. So that would have been a 1-1/2 tanner? Year?

Re: Covid excuse to play hookey

Good thing you don't raise goats. They'd all have longer legs on one side than the other. Do you have a good heater in the Fordota?

Re: Replace kingpin & spindle

GBSisson and I had success honing our king pin bushings using a dowel wrapped with emery paper. But, I have absolutely zero success finding the threads here on the Barn.

Re: Banjo rear end lube capacity?

Thanks folks! I had recently seen that if a trans were filled too high (to the plug) that there might be foaming which could lead to problems. I'll see if I can fill it to slightly below the plug,...

Re: 34 Ford Removing Cowl Lights then???

Many folks on this site would welcome a glimpse of a hot rod. (in fact, I think I see more "modified" cars here than bone stock.) I feel that the Model A crowd is way narrower in their outlook. I...

Re: aircraft type steel tubing

Thread sizes smaller than 1/4" are designated by a numerical size. So, except for Home Depot hardware, there isn't really a "3/16" thread size. That said, #10 threads are very close to being 3/16....

Re: Calling trans experts: Issue with bushing sizing for throwout fork shaft

GB and I have both had luck with a dowel slotted for a length and wrapped with emery cloth. With kerosene as a lube, they cut really slowly. (The chips look like they could be used for pigment in...

Do mufflers work with the flow reversed?

I read a bit on three chambered mufflers and they talked about sounds bouncing back and canceling the others out. It was a bit too much for me to digest. So, if I install a muffler backwards, what...

Jail Bar pix for GB SISSON

Went to south Jersey yesterday for the annual Pumpkin Run. It's a nicely sized car show set amidst an old junk yard with lots of '40s to '60s iron rusting in the woods. I found the trim ring that I...

Re: Cheap Reproduction Hubcaps - to avoid Licence Fees

As I recall from my youth, '49 Chevys had a red field around the bow tie on hub caps and red in the hood and trunk ornaments. That was changed to gold in '50.

Re: Fit too tight for grease?

I took the pedals out and put a small burr into the Dremel. I cut some shallow grooves out from the hole for the fitting, put a fresh tube of grease with Moly in the gun and it went in very nicely....

Fit too tight for grease?

I lapped in my kingpin and pedal bushings. Grease goes into them but I really have to crank on the grease gun. Is this a problem?

Re: Resistor for 12V coil

If you had three resistors, you could try putting two of them in parallel and then putting the third in series with the pair. (But, I'm pretty sure that a better recommendation will show up!)

Re: Video - Getting Rid of Mice
