Re: Is it 6 Volt or not?

1954 was the first year for 12 volt cars. It's fair to understand the ignition systems went 6 volts for years after.

Re: '40 Wider Wheels?

Big/little aside. I ordered "tall" tires for my f150. Didn't need to change the rim width. Not cheap though.

Re: nasty odor

Coolant finds it's own level. It pushes it out when it's too much and expands under heat. Fill it, move on to the reason you have a heat issue. You said you have a heat issue? What temps are you...

Re: nasty odor

You can pick up a infrared gun at local hardware stores fairly cheap to check you engine temps.

If the radiator isn't leaking from pressure, I'd stick with the 4lbs cap.

I'm guessing you are...

Re: 50 psi oil pressure gauge

Cold oil will give you a higher pressure pump read on the gauge. All that matters is how it reads when it is hot. No one ever has an issue with cold oil or a cool radiator on startup. Sounds normal....

Re: wheel balance

So i have to cut my tube and put beads in it, then patch it?. Guess I'm confused. May be easier to get an adapter that any tire company can use.


I see maybe how this is something with radials.

Re: Accessories for 1936 Ford V8's

It's all really a personal opinion. Some like rubber rats hanging off the mirror. What is right or wrong is just opinion and time. Maybe rubber rats will be the next evolution of awesome from here...

Re: Accessories for 1936 Ford V8's

Still one of my fav 36 coupes granted it is a 3w and has an advantage. Wasn't a fan of the red grill.
