Re: Install radiator hardware?

I used a specialist to help me get the lower radiator bolts in my 46 Coupe, one of my grandsons. They have small hands, good eye sight, can squirm up under the dash, and are a lot quicker at getting...

Re: Signal-stat 900 turn signal on positive ground

I have a 5007R in my '46 Coupe when I bought it, and the indicator didn't work. A bit of troubleshooting, and reading posts on this site and the EFV8 site, led me to the problem. A previous owner...

Re: New fangled water pumps

I installed a pair of Denis Carpenter pumps on my '46, 59AB, a couple of years ago. They are performing well, no leaks and good temperatures. The impeller design is of the "closed" design, which is...

Dean. Here is a pic of my '46, 59AB, showing the bracket mounted with two intake manifold bolts. The engine compartment looks a bit better after the cleanup. Yes, I know that the ignition wire...

Re: 47 Ford Headlights

Gar. Bullet connections should not be hot, unless there is a poor connection. I had to go through the connectors on my '46, to clean the bullet ends and clean and resize the female connectors. I...

Re: 46 crab dist tune/replace

I had Bubba do the distributor for my '46 "rabbit ear", and still working great after two seasons. It will save you a lot of bucks if you can get it done in Beamsville. Bubba does an excellent job...

Re: '40 Brake Bleeding

I turned drums, replaced shoes and wheel cylinders as well as the master cylinder. I'm getting fluid to each wheel, but will not bleed as they should. I will check the tabs out for sure.

Re: 1950 Ford Wiper

Re: Surging

In my experience, if the surge is a gentle slow/speed up symptom, it is typically a fuel issue. It the surge is quick and jerky, that is generally an ignition problem. The causes can be many, so...

Re: Magna flux tool

Re: Autolite 216 plugs

Re: Oil pressure mystery
