Re: is it ok to run diluted antifreeze?

Why not use it?
Anti-freeze does not dissipate heat as well as pure water.

Re: Perch bolt ID

The entire assembly was different. No parts interchanged between the two designs.

Re: is it ok to run diluted antifreeze?

50/50 mix is best
I personally would never run just water ,
With antifreeze it helps keep the rust from forming

Re: is it ok to run diluted antifreeze?

Flatty's run hotter than the average engine you say? News to me.

There is no debate among folks that have a basic understanding of thermodynamics.
Pure water will dissipate heat better than...

Re: Perch bolt ID

These were for the first design sway bar. That was installed well in to January 1940.
You will rarely see that design bar as they were well, not a good design. Most were replaced at the dealer when...

Re: Which Oil Sending Unit Should I Use?

If you mean about an inch away from the stock sending unit, then yes, that's a perfect spot.

Re: knob on choke cable

If you want to save the knob for reuse, do what Meric42 has advised.
If you're replacing the knob, cut it off.

Re: Which Oil Sending Unit Should I Use?

If you have the 21 stud engine, you must have the 50# sending unit.
The correct sending unit will have NO markings on the base. Later service parts that are 50# units, will have "50" stamped in to...

Re: 1936 Ford rearend gear ratio and speed

I have had numerous 1936 through 1940 Fords. My overall favorite gear ratio is the 3:78. Plenty good "off the line" and cruising at 55 or so is never an issue.
I currently have a '36 roadster with...

Re: Tips On Installing Stock Exhaust Pipes

If Mike (3rd gen) said they are NOS - they are NOS.

I asked about the NOS as many repop pipes are super poor quality.
That front pipe has a tight fit against the frame in one or two places...

Re: Rust Oleum spray cans

Guys, I started this thread to see if it was a personal issue - the trouble I'd been having.
Apparently it is widespread.
And, while a number of you guys have found ways to overcome this issue, me?...

Re: Trick to remove OFF ON ignition plate

Speaking with a LOT of experience...
Forget about damaging the original plate. You're going to replace it anyway.
I use a tack remover specifically designed for upholstery work.

Re: How much play (movement) should there be in a gen pulley?

Can you post a photo of the generator?
Some pulleys required a clip at the end of the armature shaft. That clip is very oft times absent.
There's really no "good" reason this continues to happen...

Re: Spring clamp torque value?

Lawson, I agree with you in part.
There is "good enough" and many times, that's just what it is - "good enough".
Then there is "done correctly" which will always be just that - done correctly....

Re: '37 Ford all locked up

Methodically....that 's my approach.

Jump the starter direct from a battery. A 12v. will do for now. Keep the ignition off, car in neutral. You don't want to start it, just see if the starter...

Re: 1938 Woodie - closing gap in wood frame

My guess, and only a guess, is one or more pieces never fit very well together. There's no "adjustment" back there.

Without having that panel in my hands, I can't say for certain whether or not it...

Re: '36 spare tire cover seal won't fit

I'd installed a Carpenter seal a few months ago. It was rubber - not foam, and fit wonderfully.

Re: 1940 Ford Engine splash pans?

Here's two photos to make it easy for ya. These are both the 85/90 pans as well as the 60 pans.
Note the small "cut out" on the right 85/90 pan... that's '40 only. 1939 pans did not have that cut...
