Re: Newbie but am I in the right place

Welcome to the barn! There's no place on the web that can match the knowledge on the forum. Please post more pics when the merc arrives home!

Re: 1901 teapot question

I've had pretty good luck with mine. Ethanol gas is a not good for these carbs. The varnish gums them up and they leak-alot! I think they get a bad rap. I had Sal Cicala rebuild mine and I runs...

Re: carlisle report??

I went Wed and Thurs. There was a lot more modern stuff for my taste but lots of vendors with boxes to dig through. LOTS of tool vendors too. I imagine many people were just eager to get the hell out...

Re: carlisle report??

I was there. Had a decent turnout but many spaces were empty. Not many masks being worn. My first time. Definitely want to go back there or Hershey post COVID. I had a good time.

Re: Fun at Mart's. Ol' 59 Flatty! 32 Sedan! Plus vintage machinery!

You are one resourceful guy Mart. You find ways to save these flatties that most of us would give up for scrap. Love the progress on the 32!

Re: Fun at Mart's. Old Ford Rally. 32 Sedan shocks (still). Ol' 59 Flatty Crank out.

Really liked the video! Looks like the Ute shared some basic body panels as the Fords utes. Also seems the Capris of that era were much more popular in the U. K. Than here in the U. S.. Can't wait...

Re: Shop ruined my '48 radiator tanks

Re: Painting with Acrylic Enamel question

I'd like to see how they turn out. I'm sure it's a tedious job to clean the paint off the highlighted chrome parts. Roy please post pics when you're done!

Re: Cold starts at Mart's. 33 coupe 41 pickup. Decision time.

I had one of those glass filters on my merc. By chance I checked the engine one day and the damn thing was dripping right on the intake manifold! It surely would have gone up in flames.

Re: Thoughts on 1946 Ford running gear

Go to youtube and search "Iron Trap Garage" . If you go to their homepage look up "Free T" project. They are guys in their 30s and build traditional hot rods in their garage. Lots of good info.

Re: Mart's Crusty Flatty Pt3. Teardown continues: Crank removal!

I never knew some flatheads used cotter (split)pins on rod nuts and safety wire on mains. Must be for industrial applications? However, my experience has only been with the later 49-53 engines.
