Re: '35 Radiator / water out the tube

When I first got my '46 Coupe, 59AB, I changed all the fluids. When I refilled the radiator, I brought the fluid level right up into the neck, just below the rad cap (4 psi) seat. I took the car...

Re: Holley 94 Rebuild - Something Strange

Did you get the tiny check ball out, that is held in by a spring clip in the bottom of the accelerator pump bore? It was kind of hidden by sediment in the bore. I missed it when I was in the...

Re: "help"

More info would help in assisting you. Did you only install new rings? Did you check the pistons and bearings clearances in the engine? What is the gap on the rings? Did you use plastic-gauge to...

Re: Who can repair the fuel sending units

I took a shot at fixing up a KS sender that was in pretty hard shape, and it works well. A great learning process and a sense of pride for me, even with my miss steps.

The other thing I had to...

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

Regarding the gasket size, the ones that come with the Fram C4P that I have used, fit nicely into the cover, and fit tight enough that I can turn the cover upright to install and the gasket stays in...

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

I have used C4 and C4P in my 59AB filter housing. I'm not sure what the difference is between the two, but one must be better than the other, because it has more letters. :) Actually, I believe the...

Re: using the stock mechanical fuel pump with electric

Rance. I installed a 6v flow through pump on my '46 Coupe, for the same reason you want to. I only run it if the car has been sitting for a week or so, and rarely after the car has run. There are...

Re: Trunk mat 41 convertible

Re: Generator Pulley Missing Coolaing Vanes

Re: Brakes Bendix style

3wmike. If you are going with the Bendix kits, the supplier will need to know the width of the brake shoes. My '46 drums are 1-3/4".

Re: Adapting An OE Gas Tank Sender Unit

DrB. Looks like a nice job. Did you check to see if the toilet gasket was fuel proof? The PO of my '46 Coupe use a gasket material that was not fuel proof, and it made a mess inside the tank. It...

So are you just asking about the coil performance, or do you have the Petronics unit as well? When I bought my '46 Coupe a few years ago, I thought I would go with the electronic ignition. After...

Re: Holley 94 Fuel Inlet Fiiting - 1/4" Tube

Ziggster. If you have a tubing bender, it is fairly easy to reshape the line you have shown in post #7. I had to do that for the new line I put on '46 Coupe

Re: wood top bow supplier?

You are right Mike. For $500, it should be correct. Have you contacted Oak Bows about the poor quality. A valid question on the length to reshape to the correct profile. Measuring both pieces,...
