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

I've been reading these posts and have to say I feel sorry for some of you. It's easy to dismiss or label young people. I'm in my 50s so I'm in the middle and I really try and resist falling into...

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.

Re: 1951 Ford Passenger car Speedo

Re: 52 - 54 customline tudor quarter window

It uses 2 rollers that ride on fwd and aft tracks at the bottom of the window. You pretty much have to remove the wing window (if at front) and possibly remove the regulator to get them to slide out....

I had a 55 F100 that had the same setup. Someone mounted a 50 Ford car heater. It worked ok until I found a stock heater.
