Re: Covid excuse to play hookey

I like blue. I like the muted dark front end blue better. A lite grey is classic work truck. Paint it coral pink, I bet no one will forget it for 50 miles around. haha

Re: 1953 Ford car wiring

Re: Front end lift.

Yep, I get it. Lowered my truck with a drop axle. The original axle went back in a couple yrs later.

Best of luck.

Re: Shackle pin, heads up

Don't weld anything galvanized either without proper helmet ventilation. It'll kill ya quite literally.

Re: Fuel pump just as a pass thru

Vic did one as mentioned. The concept is pretty easy. Remove either the fuel pump rod or the lever action unit in the fuel pump, then replace the diaphragm with a tin plate.

Ralph you are a mobile emp. :) It's pretty weird that you can effect anything outside of the car system to interfere with outside radio waves. I'm sure it's its just a coincidence of circumstance. or...

Re: Pressure plate bolt torques

15-20lbs is really not that much pressure. Hell my head weighs about 11lbs according to science. hahaha. Torquing a bolt at a higher torque doesn't make it better or stronger. Certainly with...

Re: What would you do 42-48 1/2 ton p/u

Are your original rims/wheels in bad shape? Why the change. You can get a lot of tires in various sizes bia or radial.

Re: Low speed miss

Well it could be carb. But your carb is not working well if it's overflowing or running rich. It's a system, once you fix one thing something else can come up. The test is to make it all run...

Rockfla I don't know anything about the eastwood tig like you asked. I have 175 Lincoln tig. It'll weld most everything thick and thin. I agree with the statement about getting a very good helmet....

Re: Conversion of Cutout to solid state

Don't throw out your original cutout. You might need it later. At least a good back up in the trunk.
