Re: I'd like to start a new thread on the components we choose for an engine build

How far up north are you moe? I know most guys recommend best gaskets but In the BC interior I can still get a Felpro complete gasket set from Lordco. Not sitting on the shelf but they'll bring it in.

Fuel pump stand - what's up?

Any ideas for the reasoning of the addition of this little piece of rubber hose on the fuel pump stand? Discovered upon disassembly.

Re: Australian 1940-1941 Ford Open Cab Pick-Ups

Re: changing oil on 39 for flathead?

Can you post a picture? What type of filter setup do you have?

If it's a typical bypass canister type, C4 Fram or WIX 51006 should fit. Napa carries the WIX. Best to pull what you have and post a...

Re: Water is not supposed to be there...

That's not the end to the day anyone wants. Is it repairable? Can it be sleeved?

Hoping for a speedy recovery, if its possible.

Re: 59 Camshaft oiling

I will double check when I get home and edit if needed. From memory, if any of the 3 journals are less than 1.7955 for 78, 81A, 59A it should be discarded unless you can find oversize bearings which...

Re: Which fuel fittings?
