Re: Is it just me?

By turning on the water valve you are allowing water to bypass the thermostat and return to the lower hose or water pump. Sounds normal to me.

Re: Merc In The Snow

Nice video, before the days of salt and brine I didn't mind winter driving. Love the sound of 6 volts cranking over when cold. Your suspension seems to doing excellent job.

Re: Heated Seats In The Model "A"

I looked at Amazon and different brand but look identical ad said for 2 seats for the same price as Summit for 1. I would check with seller if it's for 2 would be a great deal. KBD brand $53.

Re: Heated Seats In The Model "A"

I have installed them in a more modern car and don't remember the instruction being specific about material. They worked great. I believe the brand was Rostra, I see Summit racing has what appears to...

Re: New car in the garage

Black cars have so much class, hard to keep clean but it really shows when you do. Nice car.

Re: 66 mustang

When you said it was a GT Fairlane I automatically thought it was a FE engine car, all 66 GT's were 390's, 67 could be small block. I have been known to be wrong, just ask my other half.

Re: 66 mustang

Convertibles did have torque boxes, What parts from Fairlane GT were you planning on re using? The FE engine doesn't fit into pre 67 Mustangs without a lot of work. It didn't fit in the Fairlane that...

Re: Affordable Ford V8's

Kind of like a "which oil is best questions". The later the car the more comfortable and the more complicated. I would think anything from 39 to 48 is a happy medium. Nothing against earlier or later...

Generator

Just a question, but how did the factory polarize generators on the assembly line? Theory is fine, in the numbers they were produced just baffles my mind.

Re: Introduction to my 50 fordor

Nice find, very comfortable cars to ride and drive. I'm always shocked at how easy they are to get in and out of, and so much room.

Re: Y block fuel pump

I thought there was someone here on Ford Forum that rebuilt fuel pumps with modern fuel compatible parts and could set pressure to Ford specs?

Re: Drug another home but with a torque converter

I don't think the converter is the same, the flathead flex plate is just kind of a rectangular plate if I remember correctly.
