Re: Synthetic Oil?

I have been told that synthetic oil is more prone to leaking than conventional oil.
TRUE or FALSE?

Re: 1953 Mercury Distributor - dual point / single point

Stock manifold has the port located below the throttle plate for the Load-A-Matic. Stock distributor single pont unit works fine. Dual point is not needed.

Re: 8BA oil canister bolts

Yup. 5/16 is the size. If you install heads that don't have the mounting holes for the 5/16 bolts you can use longer bolt studs that will accomodate the base of your redesigned and modified (5/16 "...

Re: How to repair damage to a deck

I agree with Kay. My old eyes can't discern those unclear photos. Did you use the MACRO setting on your camera for clarity?

Re: '39 running boards?

I installed Drakes covers in 1988 and they have held up well. The hooked edge makes install a bit easier. I used contact cement. Do not let air bubbles form by trapped air. You might want to use a...

Does any Fordbarner have a garage equipped with a lift that I could use to make a repair that requires "under car" access? Thanks, Jim

Re: Private North Carolina Ford Two Generation Legacy Collection

Perfect proof that the good that we do is left behind for others to enjoy.

A very nice legacy. Hope it turns into a museum and not auction block items.

Re: 1953 Ford starter issue

I'm betting on Mr. Tubman. The starter plate angle match with the bell housing is the key.

Re: 1953 Ford starter issue

As has been said, make sure you have the correct matching bell bousing with matching starter plate as they all do not install at the same angle. That creates 'meshing" problems with flywheel.
