Re: KS Fuel Sender Repair

I fixed a KS temperature sender a couple of years ago (different, but I believe they work on the same principle). Mine was corroded as well, so I soaked it in Evaporust, which removed the rust and...

Re: Oil filter add to 36 lb?

I would advise against using non-detergent oil in anything for which it is not specifically required.

Re: Stromberg 97 adjust

If you have one of this type dual manifolds, you can probably get away with running one carb blocked off (the rear carb), as the front carb is in just about the position as a stock manifold. It's...

Re: 3- 97's Installed

Nice lookin' setup; as long as it runs well, who cares about the number of carbs and type of linkage? Now, what are you going to use for air cleaners?

Re: 97 carb hesitation

Since you say you are "new to the flathead world", are you aware that Ford did not use a Stromberg 97 carburetor in 1941? It should have a Holley 94. If you find you have to replace (or do major work...

Re: Flat spot that just won't go away

You know, I have used this technique several times over the years with great success on several different types of engines. It has been especially helpful when working on SBC's.

Re: 34 Ford Carburetor

Here's a little story. About 25 years ago, I bought a "4 in a row" Weiand manifold for the early hemi in my dirt modified. I had a bunch of 94's I was gonna use on it, but it turned out that the 94's...

Re: 34 Ford Carburetor

I use one of the "squeeze bottle" ketchup containers for priming the carbs. I have never had a problem wit gasoline dissolving the containers; I think ketchup is toxic enough so the manufacturers...

Re: Headlight

We'll see. The first couple of posts on these boards can be kinda scary. It's easy for a new guy to get spooked.

Let's hope this guy has a backbone so we can help him.

Re: red liquid fuel gauge?

What's the specific gravity of glass? I hope it's less than 2.95 or else it will sink to the bottom of the gauge.:eek:

Re: Good end to a bad start(er).

Did that. I used "Marvel Mystery Oil" as it was handy and let it sit for a couple of days when I was done. A friend of mine said to use "Mobil-1", but I didn't want to open a bottle just for that.

Good end to a bad start(er).

I'm sure you guys remember the problem I had with the rebuilt starter from NAPA. I'm here to report that all ended up well. I was able to return the faulty starter to NAPA without a lot of trouble,...

Re: 50 Ford Crestliner Steering wheel

There is a persistent rumor that the Ford Crestliners actually used surplus steering wheels sourced from Frazers (look at the stylized "F"). Maybe a check of Kaiser/Frazer parts dealers might turn...

Re: 34 Ford Carburetor

Re: Disc Brakes V Bendix Brakes-Which performs best??

The stock brakes in my '51 are just fine, thank you, I can lock 'em up any time I want to. Since there are no mountains (an few large hills) in Minnesota, I don't see any time I would have the need...

Re: combustion chamber design

There is one exception in aftermarket heads. Edmunds (at least the three sets of 8BA's I have) have the sparkplug relocated just enough so that it clears the exhaust valve and allows the use of...

Re: Wheel/Tire Fitment 51 Vicky

Thanks, Ken; that saves me a lot of crawling around with a ruler. Look in the manual? Duh! Why didn't I think of that? A positive offset of .62 gives a backspacing of 3.12".

It looks like the OP...

Re: Flat spot that just won't go away

Or perhaps a bad vacuum gauge; can you check yours out on another vehicle or perhaps borrow another?
