Re: Starving for gas at highway speed

Re: Mystery leak

With a mirror and a good light, you should be able to see back there.

Re: Starving for gas at highway speed

several years ago, there were some poor quality carburetor float valves made with a very small hole for the fuel to pass thru. The car would run fine around town but get it on the highway and it...

Re: Battery Move

I always use the ground cable for the disconnect. My reasoning is similar to removing the battery cables with no disconnect. You remove the ground first so if your wrench slips while removing the hot...

Re: Model T & A Era Only Car Show & Swap Meet

It sounds like a good meet. I would like to attend but a little too far away.

Re: Tires for my 16" wheels

I would suggest 600x16's. They fit well on the 16 inch rims and look good on the car.
I think the 550's are a little small.

B Engine with Babbitt bearings running a 6.0 head in a car I have done a lot of touring in. No problems at all except watch the spark advance.

Re: Getting 31 Coupe doors to stay closed !!

May be the strikers are worn out and the latch is just barely catching it. The Latch "tongue" could also be badly worn.

Also, the gap between the door and the door striker post may be too wide...

Re: Fan Blade orientation

PDGX,

If I were you, I would remove that fan ASAP.

What you have is a very poor replacement 4 blade fan. It has no strength in the blades close to the hub and over time, and in some cases not...

Re: B block hole repair

It looks to me that it may have been stitched once before and one of the stitches came out.

I would try to plug it in place, put it back together and run it and at the same time, start looking for...

I know this subject has been covered numerous times but can not fine it.

I used to be able to post pictures in the past but can no longer do so.
