Re: Mail order dual exhaust systems

Nothing in the sentence referenced about "1000 point concours" mentions dual exhaust. It states "exhaust systems". As a point of real world experience, I mentioned mine which was a dual exhaust...

Re: Open car chrome plated trico wiper motor

As noted above on Ebay- Ron Monte is the go to guy for these hard to find (rare?) NOS wipers. Interesting guy, knows lots of stuff. I got my 32 wiper from him.

Re: Mail order dual exhaust systems

Red's is the only place I buy adjustable lifters from. Red and now Jim checks each and every one for hardness and thread torque. Unless you have real experience with problems with their lifters,...

Re: Flathead V-8 Starter Rebuilding

Everyone is correct on this post. there is no real disagreement. Unlike the technical discussions, this is actually a lesson in English grammar. Kube's comments of "rebuilt" and "remanufactured"...

Re: Hood Arm Bolts - 40 Pickup

This another place where only the good correct stuff works. Ford hinges and the hardware from 35fordtn. Don't even try anything else.
The difference- disaster versus works perfect. I have a 40...

Re: Freebies

Re: 32 Ford brake cross shaft assembly

Re: Getting paint inside boxed in areas?

IMHO the overthinking alarm has been engaged. Powder coating is a terrible idea for the the simple fact that it has poor adhesion. Secondly, the closed areas of a roadster body are few, small or non...

Re: 1932 V8 standard roadster update

Wonderful, I did quickly notice the three mirrors because I read the book. I also don't think you are the guy to question on these points. HaHa.

Re: 32 Ford brake cross shaft assembly

For those watching, the Ebay part is a model A part and/or big truck part. We are working on Boxcar Tom's brother's 32 car or commercial. The assembly in question is B-2468. And yes like many 32...

Re: 1936 lower radiator hoses installation

The straight hoses are correct for your installation. Doglegs are for later engines fitted into early cars.. First off, why is radiator lower? Can you shim it up? I could not get my 32 lower hoses...

Re: 32 Ford brake cross shaft assembly

Re: '41 won't crank when hot

Not to sound like a wiseguy, but please define "rebuilt starter". All too often they get opened up, checked for brush wear and put back together. Except for a loose/broken wire or terminal screw,...

Re: Marvel Classic Motor Oil

Pdstark asks a real question. A valve, either intake or exhaust, will open because the cam shaft is going to push it up with solid force. The valve has no choice in this part of the operation. ...

Re: 32 commercial rad cap hunt ?? 'Holy Grail'

I think the problem is (was) that they just looked like another ole timey radiator cap. Adding to the confusion is they sorta look like a model A part and therefore nearly worthless as model A parts...

Re: Rust Oleum spray cans

You should be choosing paint based on the type of paint. Krylon is usually a lacquer (acrylic) and Rusteoluem is an enamel. Way different materials. Of course Krylon is going to be less...

Re: Use of Slip plate to lube springs

So true. A leaf spring is really a constant strength (stress) plate of roughly diamond shape and cut into strips and stacked together to make practical sized assembly for use. It is nothing more than...

Re: Use of Slip plate to lube springs

Re: Cooling system help needed

High flow pumps, no/low restriction in hoses and the "toilet is overflowing" . Report back on what Mr. radiator has to say. You are close to getting this sorted out.

Re: Cooling system help needed

I am with post #6 above. My basic theory is if you are having cooling issues and you do not have a full report on the condition of the radiator, then its time to go to your olde timey radiator shop...
