Re: vacuum source

The banjo line goes to the distributor.
Actually to the port in the front cover. The hose is for vacuum wipers.

Re: selling a car to someone in Sweden

I recently sold a friend's car to someone in Germany. As noted, the buyer made all the arrangements. Had the money direct deposited to my bank. Smooth transaction.

Re: 59L startup oil pressure at crank speed.

I don't see any problem. I generally get more pressure, but I'm cranking with 12 volts.As Tubman says, if you are getting pressure, be happy and run it.

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

With #1 spark plug out, you can get a dial indicator on the exhaust valve. Get a degree wheel, set up a pointer and degree the exhaust event.

Re: 1939 ford deluxe Grille

So is there a difference in the grille structure? His question was if the trim would fit 2 different versions of the grille.

Re: Fun at Mart's. 32 Sedan Pt13: Brakes. Ol' 59 Pt7: Crack braze. Plus Gavin's new c

Everything was pretty much spot on. I texted Gavin also to let him know. Mike bought the body and chassis in Georgia. He installed the running gear.

Good to see your video Mart. That car belonged to a friend of mine who passed away earlier this year. He bought the car out of Georgia, just the body and frame.

Re: new engine start-up problems

Cams have been known to be ground wrong. Need to degree the cam. This should always be done with any cam change. I have found cams to be off by as much as 6*.

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

A 77B at TDC overlap will have both valves open about .030.
