Re: wiring needed for a quick start 51 Flat in a 39 pickup

Regarding 'simplest way to wire'... I saw this thing running around a few days ago. It stopped at a parts store that I was at. It has a Ford radiator shell, so I'm sure it's ok to show it here. Talk...

Re: 1940 Front Wheel Cylinders

Yes, and for good reason. Assembly lube does NOT attract moisture. Never-ever-ever assemble with the pistons wet with brake fluid. That's what causes them to gum up, stick, and eventually rust. JMHO

Re: Removing transmission 1947 Mercury

slide the engine forward an inch.... I'm having trouble with this. I realize you've tried everything possible, but it sure seems like moving the engine forward should NOT be necessary. I've had the...

Re: 1947 convertible radio antenna

For whatever it's worth... Regarding MY 47 convertible.... It's a 'through the center of the windshield' antenna, with the inside knob to rotate it up or down. When I got my car, it came with...

Re: Mercury Flathead on Craigs list MN

Makes me wonder... I also note that the flywheel and clutch are NOT the Merc version that I am familiar with.

Re: Best electric harness on the market??

When David brings something like this to my attention, it makes me smile also. I see nothing but a credibility problem with Bauer/Harris, because of this. Opinion...

Re: D44 R&P pattern

Back in the days when I was building 44's for Jeeps, I made my own tools to set pinion depth. Not hard to do. And, BTW, setting pinion depth is not 'fool-proof'. The pattern rules, and sometimes a...

Re: '32 woodie - holes in cowl

Well, heck, I must have been 'styling', back in the 50's. Here's one of my high-school cars, with BOTH the antenna, and the port-a-walls. Little hard to see in the pictures, but they are there. It...

Re: front axle for 1934 Ford

Chiming in with Newc... Be careful with the terminology... 4-in drop does not usually mean 4-in from stock. It means 4-in total, or, around 2-in from stock. In any event, please check it out. I think...

Re: Oversized Brake Drums

This is really good info that I really appreciate. I've just chatted with Don, the owner, and now I'm on the hunt for 35 drums with less regard for their size. Thank you.

Re: Ed Iskenderian Interview

Re: Oversized Brake Drums

Re: sealed bearing fan hub

DD... I'm a little surprised at the fan shown in your pict... I've never found those fans to move enough air. I've thrown away a few of those.

Re: 255 merc excessive ring end-gap?

We're screwing around with old Fords. Me thinks there is too much worrying going on. Are we assembling 'precision' engines, or just old Fords?

Re: 46 pick up 1/2 or 3/4 ton?

Referring to your picture... If you could pop off the hubcap, and count the lugs, might identify 1/2 or 3/4, 5 or 8 lugs ??? Maybe. DD would know. And, as DD noted, 7 in the 799, designates 1947...

Re: 34 Ford Hood latch spring

Re: 1940 merc rear end?
