Re: '35 Radiator / water out the tube

I am not pressurizing the system at less than 4 lbs. 4 lbs is the cap
ratting not the pressure in the system. Most water pumps slip and
churn air into the mixture. Air does not cool like water....

Re: '35 Radiator / water out the tube

With a pressure cap and a recovery bottle you can fill the
radiator up into the filler neck. More coolant, better cooling.

Re: 1935 Hydrostatic Sending Unit

Re: Calling Ol'Ron, calling Ol'Ron...

You don't just stick .060 shims under warn weak
springs. There is a spring test machine that shows
the spring pressure at a set height. They should
all be close to the same pressure. G.M.

Re: 1946 Mercury exhaust system source?

I think the Mercury caris longer than the Ford. I had the drive
shaft and rear from a 1948 Mercury and it was 8 or so inches
longer. G.M.

Re: 34 electrical issues and 8V->6V conversion

It won't start with 2.6 volts to the coil. It drops even lower

8 volt batteries...
