Re: Going to paint the coupe.

A real body shop knows how to remove trim without damaging anything. You will get a much better job by taking it all off. Think about dirt blowing out from under it into your wet new paint. Was...

Re: 32 grill shell

There were different manufacturers also. Some have little wedges at the bottom spreading the bars to hold them, some are all integral. DavidG will probably chime in here.

Re: Trouble shoot 1950 8Ba initial start up Help

I don't know about putting the cam gear on backwards but the crank gear could certainly be slid on wrong. I have never seen a "slash" on a crank gear the 2 dots on the gears in the picture on post...

Re: Trouble shoot 1950 8Ba initial start up Help

I agree with post 51. Cam and crank are not in synch. Picture by OP not good enough to tell if it is correct and I don't think it is.

Re: 48 woody question

On my 40, I used very small diameter square drive screws everywhere except across the back above the window where the hide-em goes. The heads were small enough that they fit in where the rubber...

Re: Whirring noise .. from I donít know where

I have known of a vacuum leak causing the vacuum break piston to flutter. Check the vacuum line to the distributor at both ends.

Re: Help with ashtray retainers and ashtray in a 1940 dash

I have not used aftermarket ash trays so I don't know how well they fit. However, I have found VERY FEW remakes of anything that were exactly like the originals. You clearly have the later models. ...

Re: Help with ashtray retainers and ashtray in a 1940 dash

Maybe you have the Lefts and Rights mixed up. You should be able to put the ash try in the correct retainer easily in you hand. You might have the left retainer with the right ash tray or vice...

Re: Help with ashtray retainers and ashtray in a 1940 dash

If you have the correct retainers, they are held in with 2 small sheet metal screws. There are Left and Rights on the retainers and ash trays and covers. The early ones are completely different and...

Re: Flathead V8 Distributor Slot in Cam shaft

Sounds like you are re inventing the Sun Machine.

On a related note, I have a friend who actually installed the distributor 180 degrees out without breaking anything. There apparently was enough...

Re: Failing health

Re: Brake knocking

If the key was in wrong it could prevent the hub from seating on the taper. The key itself is tapered at one end for a reason.

Re: Woodie Auction today in Auburn, IN

Luckily, mine is not for sale but the value of our old Fords is depressing. I guess the only good thing about that is the insurance is less.
