Re: 21 stud?

I was a stud when I was 21, does that count? And yes, the V8-60 had 17 studs. I would like to have a V8-60 to "restore" for display only. They are a cute little engine.

Re: 1935 Ford radiator to grille brackets

Hey Pete. Those brackets are part of the frame that the radiator sits on. I think he is speaking of the small brackets that attach to the radiator itself. The 35 does not have these little...

Re: Steering wheel Resto

Do it yourself. It is not all that big a job. Time consuming, but I really enjoyed doing the one on my Avatar. I used PC7, not JB Weld.

Do not use a primer as you don't want primer showing through...

Re: tight engine

That's less than 23 miles a year Clem. You should put more miles on it than that just driving it on and off a trailer. It's probably rusted up inside, not to mention all sorts of critters that have...

Re: tight engine

Driving it no more than 500 miles in 22 years, the darned thing probably has internal RUST, RATS, ROACHES and no telling what else. Drive the damn thing Clem.

Re: Gas in oil

Choke only 1/2 way out to start cold. Gradually push it in when it starts and during warm up. That being said, they are all like women, gotta treat them the way they run best. My 2 .

Re: Kingpin bushing driver

Don't you mean a reamer? If properly fitted, you don't need to "drive" them in with a BFH. "The devil made me do it."

Re: Hello new member 1936 sedan with ?s

For what it's worth, I like the stance as it is. Mess with one thing and the can of worms is wide open. Just sayin'.

Re: Whatchamacallit

I believe they all had what you call the "anti cattle cap" back in the day. It is the multiple carb linkage that uses the weird "side saddle" style ends. LOL
