Re: Warning about c&g

Its a crime to have the thread name glaring on the most current page. Can we all just stop this thread by no longer adding to it. Stop and let it die and fade away.

Re: Warning about c&g

This is one of those posts that defies all other experiences.. In fact, having done business with them for over thirty years, I have never heard another complaint like it. I'm flabbergasted. Since...

Re: Stromberg carburettors

I have been running a 48 on the 59AB in my '40 for years. Runs strong!

Re: New Tires...going just a little crazy...

I find the Lucas tires from Vietnam to be a great value. They run true, need no balancing, and I have never felt a flat spot. I'm in socal so maybe if I were in a cold climate I might feel temporary...

Re: Stupid Question: what kind of tire gauge are you using

I, at one time, had a pencil type, but it had a spring behind it. It worked real well, because it did not require getting it just right to get an accurate measurement. You could just position for no...

Re: rear brake drums

I agree with ray64, the axle key may be in too far. The impact wrench may have really locked it up if the key was mis positioned.

Re: 1939 axle/ tubes questions

It's a lot easier to correct perch hole problems, and then do any welding on the outside of the perch, verses trying to restore the bore from the inside.

Re: 1939 axle/ tubes questions

The flange is no problem. If it was bumped out, then you would need tap it back. The axle, just as ford38v8 says. The perch, is a cinch to fix. You could just leave it, but that is so easy, and fun...

Re: Q: 34 Diff: torque on housing/ pinion preload etc.

I labored over how to get the pinion setting. I ended up on Amazon checking inch lbs Torque wrenches. You can get a nice beam one for less than $20.

Re: Rear Spring

Well, consider the spring well restrained when bolted into the rear member. When out and sitting around, it is wise to wrap a chain around it. Especially if it has been removed not knowing the...

Re: Rear Axle Messtoration

Regarding "barellnose's method. You can do the same heat shrink without the welding.
Get an area red hot on the side you need to shrink, then cold quench with a heavy wet rag. Recheck results as...

Re: Correct placement of front and rear grease baffles...

The flat section goes to the top at 12:00 and widest opening out.
I don't have any experience with the very early ones. The later ones don't have any spacers.

Re: Front fender dilemma

Do you have a pair? Perhaps they are very early production. Tell us about the rest of the car.

Re: 97 9519 top gasket....

Are you running some oil in your gas? Looks like residual oil from a constant seep in the gasket.

Re: Coolant Filter

Depends, I think as many people make their own as purchase one. I made mine out of a fine stainless screen inserted at the top inlet to the radiator in the hose. I shaped it into a conical shape.
