Re: A New L@@K

The ones I can stand and don’t understand are the twenties and thirties cars that sit so low in front that the passengers slide off the seats and there is no room for suspension movement in the front.

Re: 58 Edsel engine

The Plymouth and Dodge engines were 360 during late seventies and eighties. Same family as the 318.
I rebuilt several out of B300 vans.

Re: 1951 ford f-5 troubleshooting

The gage on the dash doesn’t tell you the battery condition, it tells if the generator is working.

Re: 1951 ford f-5 troubleshooting

How would a bad generator cause it to stall out?
Does the battery go dead? Does the ammeter show no charge?

Re: Electric wiper conversion

I installed a conversion kit in an F1 some years ago.
I have forgotten where the owner bought the kit but it used a Volkswagen electric motor and was very easy to install and worked very well.

Re: selling a car to someone in Sweden

Just make sure the company that has anything to do with transporting the car does NOT have the word Stockholm in their company name.
They will keep all the money and youíll never see the car again.

Re: 58 Edsel engine

The two top models in 1958 used the 410 engine.
It was NOT 410 cubic inches, it 410 foot pounds of torque.

Re: Need a good Suggestion on what to do

Thems called dash plaques.

Buy a large picture frame and bo what Clem and Al suggested. Only keep it in the house.
You may want a separate nice picture of your Dad to go in it too besides the car.

Re: 1932 Ford 4 cylinder engine tins question

Should be on both sides.
We always called ‘em engine pans.
They are usually both missing.
The last model A I worked on, a ‘30 roadster with a Russian B engine, has both pans.

Do you really think low tire pressure or low compression will or could cause a car to run poor and bike after 40 or 60 miles.

I don’t have to choose colors.
I ask my wife, paint it the color she says and never have to listen to @$&*# about having too many old cars.
I have six. Plus two daily drivers.
