Re: Oil Filter-ology

I'm with "Gene1949" on this, especially the way the vast majority of these vehicles are used and maintained these days. One thousand mile oil change intervals and no operation on dirt roads means...

Re: Engine Date for Tubman

I should have said "original thread", not "original post".

See here : https://www.fordbarn.com/forum/showthread.php?t=307127.

Sorry for the confusion.

Re: Engine Date for Tubman

My only point was that the engine probably was not a '49 as stated in the original post. I agree that it's not that important, but some times I like to pick nits. The engine in my '51 was date-coded...

Re: New member intro and a question about mirrors

A couple of years ago, I was testing a fully isolated voltage (12 to 6) drop device that also gave out "clean" power we were developing. To test it, I installed a bunch of cheap 12 volt devices in my...

Re: Engine Date for Tubman

Just because nobody's posted it lately :

The format is "Letter" (month), "Number" (day of month), "Letter" (year). The letter code is M=0, G=1, B=2, L=3, A=4, C=5, K=6, H=7, T=8, R=9, S=10, E=11,...

Re: Double deckers

Don't take this wrong, but situations like this are why the "Replacement Block" project will never reach fruition. Try to imagine how many times this is repeated throughout this country. And not just...

Re: My next adventure

"Before" worked for me this morning. Perhaps it is because he just posted a new link and left the old one which didn't work (and still doesn't).

Re: '49 car fuel sending unit testing

Doesn't a 6 volt dry cell cost about as much as a voltage drop unit these days?

I quit buying 'em years ago because of the cost.

Re: Bradley Floor Pans - Is It Still in Business?

I've come to the conclusion that this guy is an artist, not a businessman. Van Gogh cut his ear off and Gauguin took off for Tahiti; it comes with the territory, I guess.

Re: Distributor issues

To be perfectly clear : each set of points is set to 26 degrees dwell, not the total dwell which will end up being more. Use a little piece of cardboard to alternately block each set of points open...

Re: Correct Carb for my 1940 Ford

The O/P said the carb on the engine now is an 8BA, so that is obviously wrong (with the extra vacuum port on the back). You are correct, "Kube" is the ultimate authority on this.

Re: At my age why do I bring these things home?

Could that be a later engine than '49? I'm not really up on '49's and trucks, but the cylinder head on that has the 3 separate mounting bolts for the oil filter. I was of the impression that '49's...

Re: At my age why do I bring these things home?

Hell, I'm 79 and seriously downsizing, but I would have brought that home in a heartbeat. I can fit another engine under the stairs. If the block is good (and I've found the more complete an engine...

Re: My '53 Customline

Your car looks great! Whatever you did to the front fenders seems to have worked very well.

It's currently 19 degrees F in Breezy Point, MN. Fortunately, I'm not there.
