Re: Painting Copper Brake Lines

I have not seen the pictures, but I agree. copper looks great against black. Technically black is the absence of color. But it is a color really. Same as white, total light. Both effect color. But...

Re: '38 rear brake spring - how to? @*&%^!!

Probably so JS. I have never worked on a ford after the 60s. But makes sense.

Re: '38 rear brake spring - how to? @*&%^!!

tools are a good thing. You might only use it a few times but it's okay and easier. That tool will work up to the 60s.

Re: What is the gross vehicle weight of 1941 Ford pickup

Just a side note.

There are places to find weight of a vehicle. If you're friendly with a rock/gravel yard they can do it for free. DMV should suggest a place.

under 2500lbs sound lite to me....

Re: Last years body on this years car

Solid info, lot of things carried over through the yrs.

Is it a 32 without the v8? I would think a 31 with a flathead v8 would be all over forums. Never seen one.

Think putting a model a...

Re: how many cfm for two carb flathead??

Article also mentions a 12.3/1 compression. Maybe I'm mistaken. That's a shit load. Race gas only.

You can run a lot of carbs with jets reduced and progressive linkage. It's a village, all needs...

Re: 1939 pickup 1/2 ton engine noise

Have you driven the truck yet?


I'd start with a compression check.
Then maybe send off the dizzy to bubba.
work out the fuel, lot of guys here that build carbs. CharlieNY comes to mind.

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

In true fordbarn fashion we do what we do. And I do what I do.


Not the best idea to have a boat gas tank as a main source of fuel I guess. But some of us just run around fields and some don't....

Re: tesla Truck

TJ, the consciences realistically to go "green" quickly (no fossil fuels) is nuclear power. Does make sense, but most of the plants we have were built 20 yrs ago. Technology is a gift and a curse! :)

Re: 8BA Low Oil Pressure

Yes... but early fords 38 "21 bolt" back to 32 only had one. At least my early 38 only had one for the oil sensor (maybe I got the only block). I had it drilled on the off chance I might use a...

Re: tesla Truck

I like my flathead and I don't want it to go away. It's not going to fade. Maybe others will over time. Lot of old hit miss engines around that people have fun with.

Re: 8BA Low Oil Pressure

Well isn't it normal that there is only one opening there for the electronic oil pressure gauge. People drilled and tapped it for oil filters (later yrs may have both). So maybe someone plumbed this...

Re: 8BA Low Oil Pressure

Pressure sounds fine except for the flickering. Flatheads are a low pressure system. At hot idle 15lbs is fine depending on the engine your building or what it is.


As oil gets hot it will get...

Re: Intake reinstall?

On an intake gasket I don't, just because I might remove the intake more often and reuse the gasket (which a little grease might help with). But heads and waterpumps I do spray with a tac spray.

Re: 1936 pickup - radiator water self leveling

Not what your asking, but I fill it to the top and let it desire what it needs. It'll let you know. If your running cool-ish don't worry.

Re: 1939 pickup 1/2 ton engine noise

Not sure what your looking for. Sounds okay other the the belt squeal at the end. tighten the belts. 1/4" play. but I could be wrong. Bearings would sqeak throughout, including idling. Loose belt...

Re: Is this Washington Blue?

As the original poster asked about a 36. I agree it was covered. But it's still up in the air the actual color really sorta or the modern paint code. I'd say your 36 is as close as it gets. My 36 has...
